How does your garden grow?

By From page A10 | April 28, 2013

Ed and Jacqueline Clemens have removed a little less than half of their front lawn on Miller Drive and inserted three garden boxes where they, too, grow vegetables and fruit. They’ve also planted vegetables around the boxes and have carved out space for five rows of soil and mulch where they recently started growing blackberries.

Though, to be fair, the Clemenses did start their home vegetable garden in the back, just a few feet from their backyard chickens.

“We knew we wanted to take out some of the front lawn, it was just a matter of figuring out what we wanted to do,” Ed Clemens said. “We really wanted to grow our own food. It keeps you in touch with reality: dealing with the heat, the suns, the bugs.”
