I had Ryan draw a little sketch of our yard!
We live on less then 1/10 of an acre!
So really, really small!
Our home is bigger then the yard....
trust me it's not very big!
I just want you to see how much is possible with very little ground!
We even still have a little play yard for the kids!
We plan to plant potatoes in a large bin on the deck.
There is also going to be 3 small composting bins along the driveway by the house.
Oh and Ryan forgot to draw the other peach tree we have in the left corner of the back yard in front of where we plan to plant some squash. Even I'm starting to be amazed at how much food growing potential our little yard has!
Anyway click on the pictures to see them closer!
If you have questions about it or wonder what something is feel free to comment and ask!
You need to know that I don't at all have a green thumb! But I love fresh fruits and veggies! I have found the secret is in the soil. If you nourish and feed your soil with good compost etc. and have a healthy environment for your plants the soil will feed your plants and you have a productive garden! I have noticed that it takes about 5 years (at least it does for us) to start getting really good soil and a very productive garden. Also I live in Zone 5 and found this planting calendar helpful. Just for fun below are some pictures of us working on the back yard playground, the garden last fall and planting seedlings this past week!
