During the summer, nothing is better than the smell of freshly cut grass. That is, unless, you have a giant vegetable garden growing in the place of your lawn. Instead of turf, this awesome homeowner, user locolukas on Reddit, opted for tomatoes. The results are absolutely epic.
What you see actually used to be a lawn.
But instead of mowing grass, one man decided to say “screw the lawn” and plant vegetables.
He filled his yard’s grid with compost that the city gave away.
Seeds began growing quickly and he had to keep up by planting support systems around them.
He even developed an irrigation system, which is much more difficult than it looks.
He lined his garden with cinder blocks, covered the ground with wood chips and filled the cinder blocks with compost as well.
Then beets. Lots and lots of beets.
Radishes began growing quickly.
He grew carrots by the bucketful.
The man even began giving out the veggies he couldn’t possibly eat, helping to spread the wealth.
Beautiful squash blossoms before the fruit grows.
And some flowers, of course.
Some people may think a garden make a yard look busy and dirty, but just check out his neighbor’s yard.
We think the veggies are a huge improvement.
Healthy AND beautiful? More people should follow suit.
