Green Acres

Eight years ago we decided we wanted to move to a place that was less crowded than where we were living.  Our perameters for our new location were that we needed a neighborhood so our kids would not be lonely.  When you home-school you think of things like that just in case you don’t find activities in your new location.  So we hunted and we hunted and we found, at the time, what seemed like the perfect location for us, a neighborhood in a somewhat less busy location with a beautiful home and some lawn to play on.

We did not account for things like a garden or wanting to have chickens because at the time it was not on our agenda, we were knee deep in home educating our children and knee deep in life.  After about three years we knew we wanted to grow our own food and truly wished we could have chickens.  Well we got close have the garden and it keeps growing, alas no chickens but plenty of local farms to buy the fresh eggs from around here so all is good.

We have over the last few years transformed our backyard to fit our garden needs.  Each year it grows and changes.  This year we will add even more, I am so excited.  I am thrilled that my husband loves to garden and continuously grows our space and added more boxes this year which more than doubles our growing space.

Here are some photos from last year.

And here is some from this year.

Since this photo this garden has increased in size.
I used to think we had to have the perfect piece of land to grow the perfect garden.  I now know there is no such thing as perfect and if you take what you have and make the most of it you can have an amazing garden.
