My Backyard Animal-less Farm

So I know you've been dying to see my backyard garden. Here it is behind the white fence. Enter the gate, and this is what you see.

Not much to see this early in the season, but if you look very closely you might just see some onion, asparagus, peas, kholrabi and radish.

I try to utilize every inch of sunlight throughout the yard as well. The result is a strawberry patch next to the garage....

Herbs in our front walkway beds...

And pots filled with edibles randomly strewn throughout the yard (yep, those are tomato plants).

  1. Ingrid,

    My family and I attend the same church as you (I think we may have met at coffee and donuts). Your husband sent the link to your blog to our mom's group e-loop, and I've been checking it out. I too have read Animal Vegetable Miracle and while I'm not as ambitious as you, I definitely am trying to buy more local, and less-processed foods. I even have some tomatoes and herbs growing on my deck!I'm excited to follow your blog and I'll be looking forward to reading in the coming months!
