Gardening is civil and social,
but it wants the vigor and freedom of the forest and the outlaw.
— Henry David Thoreau
There’s nothing terribly special about the Outlaw Garden. My house is a typical suburban house in a typical suburban neighborhood. The soil isn’t great (compost helps), a big pine casts mid-day shade, and the gardener — that’s me! — makes more than her fair share of mistakes. If I can do it, so can you!
Are you a status-quo-defying gardener? If you are growing your veggies in the front yard, landscaping with edibles, or otherwise cultivating a rule-breaking garden, I’d love to hear about it. Email me about your garden, and your garden may be featured in the Outlaw Garden blog! Thank you!
