Plant suggestions for an edible parking strip garden
We are converting our front lawn into a garden and I want to tackle the parking strip too. ItÂs about 40 feet long by 4.5 feet wide. Cars actually park in front of our house at least half the time and we live on a side street that is not "busy," but not "quiet" either.
Three main questions:
1) What type of edible plants would you recommend?
2) What do you think of raised beds?
3) Anyone with experience know if I should I be concerned with: (a) dog pee, (b) car doors and foot traffic on the garden, and (c) Passers-by pillaging my garden (I have no problem with sampling, but IÂd like to enjoy the majority of my harvest).
