A house, five acres.
No trees. No timber. No ponds.
Dreams and blank paper.
When we moved into our home last year, we were overwhelmed a bit by the “blankness” of the landscape. Since that time, we have put in raised beds, a fedge, a kitchen garden, started our orchard, planted grapes, hops, kiwi, strawberries and roses. Our fedge is made of blueberries, chokeberries and autumn berries with more variety to come next year.
Our harvest this year was massive…especially for year one in gardening. We’ve installed rain barrels, a shed and designed the property with permaculture principles in mind.
When I think we have not accomplished anything since we moved in…all I have to do is walk around the property to know that we have already started painting our canvas.
