Following our earlier post on the movement towards edible estates, we happened by this front yard over in the West Central neighborhood. This has to be the premier example in Spokane of what can be done in an area many would consider a small unusable space. They've made use of nearly ever square foot and have even spilled over into the planting strip. Fruit trees abound, strawberry plants, and the soil is rich. One downside for those in newer developments is that the strict covenants buyers often enter into will not allow such a use. Too bad really. Just another reason to luv older Spokane nabes.
