This side yard kitchen garden was part of an entire yard-garden on Pomona Avenue in Albany, California featured on this year's Bringing Back the Natives garden tour. A clever re-use of a former driveway. My tour mate commented on the flexible design of the kitchen garden. It can be removed easily if the current owner or future owner would like to use the space for parking. Also, the raised beds provide easy access for garden duties and eliminate worries about soil contamination.
Other interesting elements of the Pomona yard-garden are the three redbuds with an understory of wildflowers in the sidewalk planting strip and the Fremontia (Fremontodendron californicum) in the backyard.
Also in the backyard were two species of dogwood I had not seen before: blackfruit and creek dogwoods.
