There has been recent discussion with growing concern about growing
edibles in the area between the street and the sidewalk in my community.
I can't imagine why anyone would do this -- if you want to make the area
look better, there are lots of plants that are quite tough that you could
decorate the space with instead. The risk of contamination is just too
great to place edibles in such a place.
Beware of placing plants that are too tall in such an area -- folks do have
what they consider a reasonable expectation of being able to cross the
street or get out of their cars and if the plants are in the way, the
plants will bear the brunt of such poor design.
