After we moved here in late 2019, I observed the sun’s movement for one year to see where the light fell in the garden throughout the seasons. As a consequence I decided to use the front yard as some big trees were blocking sun light in the back yard.
We love home grown veggies and fruits so we are trying to have an abundant, self-sufficient garden where we can get most of our veggies and fruits from the garden throughout the year. Also by spending most of my free time in the garden I can reduce my stress levels; gardening is good for mental health!
We have 8 wicking beds now in our front yard , 50+ fruit trees, a worm farm and a compost bin. We are planning to reintroduce much-loved chickens very soon.
