Have lawn? Grow food. Happier bees, less mowing.

It turns out that gardening is...nice. What started a few years ago with a few containers eventually consumed our entire front-lawn with pots, containers, raised beds, and even a squash tunnel. Somewhere between the jokes of "real-live Stardew Valley is hard", we also started calling it all "Leaning Crabtree Farms", referencing the crabtree which grew leaning to one side, trying to escape the shade of larger trees.

It's not really a farm, just something to do. And it's better than mowing.
