second story view of the back garden
Finally, a picture of the whole back garden. This is quite old, though, as I have since harvested the garlic (right front), first potatoes (just behind that), and most of the brassicas (white cover). I only got about 4 servings of broccoli, and I had to pull up the cauliflower before it even blossomed. The cabbage looked to be doing well later, but then the green caterpillers found it...now, I'm afraid, it is destined to be compost. The chickens don't care for the cabbage...hmph.
Trying to live sustainably in my new tiny hobby farm in the Appalachia foothills... 2 donkeys,lotsa chickens, a dog and a cat. And a 4-wheeler WHEEE! Goats are next once we get more goat-proof fencing LOL! Also some bits of cooking, political commentary, and microbiology. Varied interests make for an intriguing mind :)
