I am hoping to get 2-3 small garden beds probably in the next 2 years. And a chicken pen with 2 (3 max) chickens.
We are planting a lemon and lime tree soon (have to get some from rhe local nursery). Hoping to get blood orange eventually. We are also getting olive trees in the next few years.
This year the aim is to keep strawberries and herbs alive
We've got fruit trees as well: lemon, mandarin, apple (x3), plum, olive, peach, apricot.
We compete with the birds for the fruit trees, but they produce so much that we do get enough. Except for the apples, the trees need pruning so that we can at least reach them, and possibly net them as the birds particularly love them.
@BeautyOfTheSoul the base is pallet timber as well.
@Hollywood I'm so envious (think I've mentioned before being envious of your tree change!). We used to have extensive vege beds similar to what your partner has built you in our old home. We also had lemon, mandarin and cumquat trees (I used to make cumquat jam each season sigh). We also had lady finger and cavendish bananas, a mulberry tree and a guava tree.
I miss having a yard sooooo much.
How good is home grown broccoli! I am a major broccoli fan, probably my favourite vegetable. I was shocked at the taste difference when we grew it ourselves!
