What is your take on growing food, not lawns?
There are some places which prohibit the ability to grow a vegetable garden instead of a front lawn. What is your take on this?
I think the cities are being silly. A well designed and cared for garden looks better than a lawn in many cases. Some people get a little power and it goes to their heads. These people need to be pilloried and shamed. The internet has been a wonderful thing, allowing us to publicize the names and ranks of idiot bullies.
It is crazy that any place would not allow this. We grow a rather large garden, and if I had the time and energy to plant the whole yard I would. It's a much better use for the space than grass.
I am fortunate enough to live in a country town. Unfortunately, I rent and am restricted to what vegetables I can grow in pots. At them moment I am looking to move to a property owned by a family member who has already given the go ahead to install a vegetable garden if I wish. As a vegetarian, it would also save me money, as the prices of some fruit and veg are disgraceful at the moment.
