Kurt and Beth Heidrich’s Maplewood backyard is full of raised beds, which are full of tomato plants in the summer — they call it K&B Micro Urban Farms. For Christmas they fill the beds with lights.
They started decorating their backyard three years ago when their nieces came to visit and continued because their neighbors told them how much they enjoyed it. The front of the house was already decorated in a more traditional way and the back seemed better for the whimsy and the LED lights, Beth said.
Beth is a ‘culinary evangelist’ according to her card. She runs STL Culinary Tours.
