Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

Am I the Only One Who Grows Tomatoes in the Front Yard?


Due to lack of sun in my backyard, I'm forced to plant some of my tomato bushes in the front yard. I know in Europe they have beautiful little kitchen gardens in their front yards. So, in order to plant a few more varieties, I planted two tomato bushes and a couple of green bean plants amongst the landscaping, and I don't think they are too noticeable. Of course, when the fruit turns red, the neighbors may wonder what kind of flower it is! :-)

I don't grow tomatoes, but I have corn in the front flower bed!!!

I would love to see a picture of your front yard. I bet it looks really cool as the corn grows tall.

My tomatoes grow in pots on my front 'veranda'! smile.. I still have to cover them with tulle to keep the birds from sampling each and every tomato.

Last year, I grew tomatoes in big clay pots on my front porch! It faces west and south and they loved it there.

You're not alone. I have my tomato patch in the front yard, too. And for the same reason. No sun anywhere else.

We just planted tomato plants (and cucumbers) in our front yard. I think they look great!

To everyone...I'm glad to hear there are some other unorthodox gardeners out there. I no longer feel sooooo alone :-)
