Thinking About Dinner?

Rodin's The Thinker sculpture in the vegetable garden

Hmm, sauteed spinach with a side of kale?

French sculptor Rodin, like his countrymen, most likely loved his food fresh from the garden. This little copy of Rodin’s The Thinker is plunked down in a vegetable garden, at a house with an almost completely edible front yard garden. This new growing trend takes edibles out of the back yard and puts them out front for all to see. And when edible plants are as pretty as these leafy greens, why not? At this sustainably built house, grape vines are trained up a porch, artichokes grow next to roses, berry bushes and strawberries scramble over the edging. The Thinker ponders while spinach, kale and potatoes grow all around him. It’s a little easier to imagine what’s for dinner when dinner is growing three feet away.
