Have you replaced the lawn in front of your house or apartment building with a completely edible garden? Questions and submissions can be sent to: assistant[at]fritzhaeg.com

They will need:
– a 500 word story about your garden
– 4 or 5 photos of your garden at the highest resolution
– your name, mailing address, size of garden, date established, and USDA Plant Hardiness Zone

  • Zone 9 includes: Houston, Tampa, New Orleans
  • Zone 5 includes: Des Moines, Chicago, Detroit
  • Zone 4 includes: Minneapolis, Burlington, Anchorage
  • Zone 3 includes: Northern Minnesota, Montana, and Maine

Find the detailed map here or go here to find your zone by zip code.
