I have lived in the same house for 20 years its a small town end terrace 3 bed house.
Last year i planted the front garden with a dozen sweetcorn plants, some spare herbs and some tomatoes in bright glazed pots with thai basil. My husband watered it nearly every night, neighbours i didnt know stopped us in the high street to comment mainly jokes about night time sweetcorn raides or deer. families with little ones stopped to point on the way to the park, It was the best thing i have ever done and a great way to meet the neighbours in met line M25 commuter land. Only problem is how do you top sweetcorn.
My best efforts this year are a herb knot garden, or a tomato extavaganza all a bit lame. I just want to do something that the small children who pass can look at and will amuse them and will let them see food grow.
Any good slightly off the wall ideas would be great.
