Since 1941, homeowners were only able to grow food in their back yard. For 3 years, a dedicated grassroots group in Sacramento worked very hard to permit front yard gardens . In 2007, city council approved 8-1 that Sacramento would now be able to grow more than just low growing ground cover. 30% of it can now be veggies and fruit! Now, strolling thru midtown you can catch mini plots from the size of a shoe box, to this beautiful sleeping creature.
Not much but sleepers here, but I am anxious to watch this garden birth itself next Spring.
Between a one way street , and a busy sidewalk is home to Summer Squash. Now a cover crop of leaves and next seasons wishes.
Break on thru the other side!
I always have the urge to lounge on a mound of soil bags. Going to nurseries I get that 'playground urge' . I can see me now. Laying on my back, reading a book in the sun, while inhaling the richness of earth in bags beneath me.

Nestled next to some Peppers, you can find some pretty flowers to make your winter days that much sunnier.
Blueberries! Yes please.
I'm just here to look good.
This is going to be so beautiful. I can't wait!
I will revisit very soon to see how everyone is coming along. Hopefully this time , I can meet the gardener and cry of joy in her/his arms .
