1918 marked Sunset’s first mention of growing a backyard veggie garden (organically in 1971). We’ve come a long way since, discovering that our backyard patches can be as beautiful as any ornamental planting, and we've put that knowledge in practice with Homestead Design Collective at our Test Gardens at Cornerstone Sonoma. Such gorgeous productive gardens are Homestead’s bread and butter. They’ve planted eight raised beds, several in-ground plantings, and a walkway of arbors, allowing for plenty of space to keep trying the latest and greatest (and tastiest) for our backyard harvests.
