A kitchen garden in the driveway

As a firm believer in using the space you have, I was inspired by this kitchen garden that I came across in Burlingame recently. Like all of uptown San Diego, the amount of land these guys had to work with was limited, so they got creative and used the space between their driveway and their neighbor’s to fit in their herbs, some vegetables, and even a peach tree!

I’d like to call attention to the fact that this is in their front yard, and it looks great! It doesn’t look out of place or odd. So, if you are fretting because you want to grow vegetables but the only sunny part of your property is the front yard… well, stop fretting and grow some veggies!
