The Big Goals:
1. To grow more food and build up our urban homestead
2. To make our backyard a Certfied Wildlife Habitat through the National Wildlife Federation concentrating on birds, butterflies, and bees.
Yep, its a mess. This is a row next to our driveway that used to have herbs in it. Now it is a mix of things, including a ton of oregano. I am going to pull the weeds out, and plant more herbs here.
These are my cute little strawberries. I have them growing in a gutter my husband painted copper. I love them.
The Pineapple Sage.
My apple tree - already has a ton of apples on it. And also a little gourd birdhouse that black capped chickadees think about moving into.
Yep, there it is in all its embarrassing awfulness. Please keep checking back to see how we turn this eyesore into a yard that is functional, green, and useful in many ways, and sustaining for us as well as for local birds, bees, and butterflies. I hope you will follow our journey!
