Check out this article on the food website Chow, all about growing food in the front yard. I was interviewed for the story and got a tiny little mention and a link but the interviewee I suggested to Chow – our friend Ed Bruske – made MUCH better copy and ran away with the whole story, photos and all!
Well, it couldn’t be helped because when the reporter asked me about neighborhood reaction to my modest little veggie garden and I had nothing interesting to report, I knew she HAD to talk to a real urban farmer like Ed. Some of his neighbors have posted such vicious and personal attacks in anonymous comments on his blog that it’s a wonder he hasn’t turned it all back to lawn. Which I suppose is their goal, but they don’t know Ed.
