The house next door to me, which shares my driveway, is vacant. It is leased, so I'm assuming the new tenants will be in any day now, but as of last weekend, VACANT. After several years of looking at what is a 3 foot by 12 ft strip of dirt, which has sat empty and forlorn, except for the random bits of detritus that rental tenants tend to leave behind, or park in the blank space (old cooler for instance), I am doing some flash mob gardening. Sure its only me, but one second awful dirt strip, next second, beginnings of a planting bed.
So yes, my good deed for the day is definitely done. I have improved my neighbors property, which surely will make the tenants appreciate it that much more. Not only that, but I paid for dirt and a few plants to go in there!
