i visited the garden today - and it is WONDERFUL. not tidy like you'd expect in a more upscale neighborhood, but NOTHING AMISS. the boxes are worm bins, not bee hives, and they are working fine, producing some of the finest vermicompost (expensive to buy) i have seen - and i am a vermicomposter myself. the rain barrels are not filled with mosquitoes, having on small openings. the hives are tucked out of the way. the front vegetable and herb garden is more productive than my own. in short,this guy is doing GREAT. his neighbor is a bit nutty (and loudly threatening), but there is NOTHING amiss about this young teacher's fantastic "green scape"
