    We would love to add a dairy goat at some point, but it may require pushing for a change of city regulations...

    Vertical growing, raised beds, and containers only make sense to me for space conservation, easier growing and much handier to keep watered.

    Have a great garden planning day.

    Hi Nebraska Dave - thanks for your comment - we are going to do more with raised beds this year too and moving away from seeding/planting directly into the ground. We're considering more containers especially for berries and flowers - never enough hours in a day!

    Hello Moonwater,

    We have 2-3 hives up and running depending on the year and survival rates from overwintering. We keep an array of herbs, fruit trees and garden veggies available for our hive friends to hang out in and pollinate but they are adventurous and go much further in their search. Yes, our daughter loves our fowl friends as much as she loves our kitties - they definitely give their own brand of entertainment!

    Do you raise bees or is your yard the local bee hangout? I'll bet the chickens and ducks are fun for your kids.
