Front Yard Food

Yummy Tummy Farms is expanding into my front yard. Planting garden beds in your suburban home’s front yard takes courage, building great relationships with your neighbors, and a well executed plan. As my team of farm volunteers makes significant progress and reaches milestones, I want to document the progress so as to cement the feeling of accomplishment.  My front yard will support four garden beds that measure four by tweleve feet that are layed out in a very specific way. I planned these farm beds to run twelve feet in the north south direction to maximize exposure to the sun. When these farm beds are done, all four will be raised beds with redwood frames supporting the fertile soil and drip irrigation to alleviate the need for hand-watering. In a future post, I will document the finished installation of my drip irrigation project in another garden, so stay tuned! Before:

Measure three times & dig once!
