Grow grass not food sign for front lawn

What better way to have a backyard adventure than to grow a garden?

Here is my new “Grow Food NOT Grass” sign that I made using a wood burner, a nice piece of walnut and some scraps. This goes with the terraced garden that I built in the spring. Actually, this is the front lawn, so my sign also serves to inspire everyone that walks past to plant their own garden.

I like to be a good neighbor and encourage people to cooperate, so I actually encourage people to take vegetables from my garden. But you’ll notice that I do put all the hot peppers upfront. I don’t want them to take everything. Ha ha. The best part is that sometimes my neighbors surprise me with some eggs from their chicken or a jar of jam.

A garden not only saves money, it’s more healthy and better for the environment. Some interesting factoids:

  • Over 90% of the vegetables in the grocery store come from a different state.
  • Almost all grocery store vegetables, even organic, use pesticides and fertilizers.
  • If everyone grew their own garden, we could save billions of dollars and billions of gallons of gas. Gas is not only used to
