Convert your lawn into a veggie garden.

When you think about your front/back lawn, is it something you use daily? Do you go out and sit  or lay on it? Do you take long strolls in it? Do you get a return on your investment of money put into watering, and time spent cutting the grass edging, or maybe you hire a landscaper to do it?

If your answer is not really, to any of those above questions, and you enjoy eating fresh organic food, then maybe you might consider converting your lawn into a vegetable garden. There are tons of great advantages such as, creating a poly culture in your yard attracting beneficials insects, birds and other wild life. It can help reduce your grocery bill, and improve the quality of food you eat.  Now I know some of the arguments are "but lawns look so beautiful" etc. Well let me tell you veggie gardens can look beautiful too! Check these out.

Here is a good book on the subject "Food not Lawns"

Also John from growingyourgreens.com has lots of great videos, and has an awesome front yard veggie garden.

Tell me your thoughts, do you know of anyone whose done this? How did it turn out?

Thanks --Dave

Got a worm tower made for a friend as a present, and harvested some worms to go along with them. Also harvested some worm juice from my new bins. Its only been sitting about a week or so and i already had a full cup of black liquid gold. I'll be posting  a short video of it soon.
