Curbside Vegetable Gardens Adding Whimsy to Your Home

By Marie |

Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, I’ve driven the streets and have seen so many homes with their front yards turned into curbside vegetable gardens. It seems to be all the rage here and I want to join in on the fun. These gardens give whimsy to the home and make the yard so playful.

Here’s a few snapshots I’ve taken from around my neighborhood. I’m not sure which is my favorite. I think I’ll be taking ideas from them all…

Curbside Vegetable Gardens


Mounds of soil for the garden bed, with a decorative pot in the center and a small rock path throughout the middle. This one is fenced out slightly for critters.

    Where in the PNW are you? We just moved from Dayton (in the Newberg/McMinnville area) to Sunriver (South of Bend in Central Oregon). I can’t grow anything here! LOL It’s too cold too long. Can’t have anything outside until JUNE! Brainstorming and looking into what I can do indoors (without taking up too much precious home space or money) to get the starters going well. I have seen some genius ideas with those over-the-door shoe/bathroom pocket organizers, which I will be using. Do you know of any others? I completely took the fertile soil and perfect climate conditions for granted when I was there. Enjoy it! It’s a beautiful, warm (not weather-wise, necessarily) place to be. :)
