I walk around my neighborhood and all these hip ass 'woke' folk have vegetables growing in their front yards, which is great and all, if u like dogs pissing on ur cabbage
i see tons of heirloom tomatoes just rotting on he vine, it's almost October for Christ sake and lots of people haven't touched a single tomato off their plant....fruit trees filled with rotting plums apples etc
beds full of kale that will surely be there after this winters thaw as an anemic yellow flop

who are these people?
can I start eating their tomatoes?

nothing wrong with that, assuming you aren't just planning to let them rot on the vine

yeah, true.... I'm not really concerned about the dogs thing, or even growing food in your front yards, just makes me scratch my head wondering why let delicious home grown produce go to waste,

Why do you get to say what they do on their property?

Also, dogs should not pee on other people's land.

I leave a lot of things to bolt for the birds.

I think a lot of people end up growing a whole front yard of vegetables without realizing just how much food that's going to be.

We have two 4x4 beds and care barely keep up with it, and we eat a lot of vegetables

Ha, i clearly don't get to tell them they can't grow food then waste it. Merely pointing out it is bewildering....and keeping your dog from not peeing on a walk is beyond me

I guess if it's house to house to house... just seems like there might be a tree or something that isn't a vegetable right next to a sidewalk. I admittedly don't live in a place like Portland, as much as it would like to be a Portland of the South, lol.

I guess woke could be used for growing food, but it is used more for social context. Food can be a social context, but using woke with it might usually be used more for understanding that organic and grown options are not available for everyone. That would be way more "woke".

I doubt you get yelled at. They can't give away all the extra because everybody has the same stuff. It's sooo hard to give away tomatoes as everybody grows tomatoes and they usually produce a lot of fruit. more than a household would consume in a season.

It's so true. That's a life here in Georgia, no doubt. Athens has it's moments, but mostly there is a lot of grass here and in the white flight counties as well.

Copa Mundial 2010. Santa Ana Ca.

Make screwdrivers from the orange tree in my buddies backyard. Freshly squozen. The cocktails come out freeway runoff water gray with a hint of orange.

Take one sip and throw that shit in the sink. My buddy then tells me he's used that orange tree as his pissing tree the last decade.

Got shot at later that night for accidentally walking into a housee that was not my buddies'. Ran for my life.

Oconee County Georgia, it borders Athens Clarke County and they use all of our resources, parks and places for good times, and have little of their own. There was a horribly racist article that came out just yesterday that criticized our schools and championed theirs. It has since been taken down, completely tone deaf.

Those sidewalk gardens are open for business imho. For people and animals. If you want a private garden fence it in.

Pretty much impossible to avoid when walking a dog anywhere with private property. Kind of a crazy statement to make.

Odd statement.

My garden is on the side of my house and mostly out of view, but I have blueberry bushes in my front yard. Should people just be able to help themselves because I don't have a fence?

right?!
But don't be shocked if somebody grabs a few while walking by.
If I had tomatoes by a sidewalk, i'd prolly have a sign like "help yourself, don't be greedy" doubt i'd ever have tomatoes by a public sidewalk though.
