    I’m a new gardener, also in the South Bay area. I am hoping to turn part of my front yard into an edible landscape as well. Yours is looking good! Hope to see gradual success in mine as well. Is your front yard as shady as in the photo most of the day? Is the lettuce and squash doing well there? I may try that if it is… Thanks!
