I turned my dream into reality as you can see from the pictures on this page. With just a small-ish growing area I and my family enjoyed many varieties of deliciously fresh produce.

We weren't self sufficient but by setting aside a small area in my back yard as a place for planting vegetables, we were able to appreciate what fresh really meant.
