Planting in a perilous location
No, I don't mean planting on a mountain slope or precipice ;-) I'm curious to know how many of you plant gardens in your front yard that are in jeopardy of being destroyed to some degree by vandals?
Yes, I am aware it has a lot to do with where you live, what the neighborhood is like, etc, etc, etc. But overall, has planting a garden where it could possibly be in the line of public fire been "worth" it to you? Have you had many bad experiences, and if so did you have to rethink the way you gardened in that location (or maybe discontinue altogether in that spot)?
There is one available location left for planting space here. It is out front by the public sidewalk. I debate over whether or not it is suitable for planting anything, partly because it is so dreadfully blistering hot in summer and partly because of the threat it might be molested, lol. I can't help wondering if I would regret doing a garden out there if many "incidents" occurred. I've had a few such events in the past, where someone ripped up zucchini plants in the old back veggie garden, and then someone smashed their way over the fence to harvest the rhubarb for me (I got some evil satisfaction knowing the stalks were old, so they had one stringy as hell pie ;-))
So, is it worth it to you to garden with the fact that it might be demolished by pranksters or downright nasty folks?
