Front Yard Garden in Spring 2012   Leave a comment

In 2011 I planted organic squash seeds and pea plants for the neighborhood in the front yard garden. I am revisiting this effort because one of the neighbors saw the lovely red leaf mustard, self seeded and left a note saying, “Great red leaf mustard plant, you guys are great,”  this is one of the many reasons I plant food on the street.

The squash seeds I planted did not come up, but the organic compost I spread on the bed offered up young sprouts that look like young squash or melon. I have always loved self seeded plants, as they are strong and perfect for the soil from where they sprout; the seeds themselves know best where to grow.
