Well last year I had a mid size garden and this year we are expanding more. Each year we add more and expand more so not to overwhelm ourselves.
We have had the chickens for 3 yrs and we are finally almost done expanding the coop and I've been considering doing a compost run like Justin Rhodes.

We are also going to start adding onto the front yard part.
We have just under 1 acre and although it sounded big when we first bought i now realize we need more 🤣

Here are some picture of my new mini greenhouse so I can acclimate my indoor seedlings to the outdoors easier.

Nice greenhouse! Gardens and chickens are space hogs! 😆 at least that's what I tell myself.

Here are some pictures of my Sprial Herb garden I am changing a few things this year so I'll update as I go.

I had a morning glory vine in the center but didn't want it spreading so I pulled it and put more lavender.

They are but I love them. I want to switch them to a mobile coop for the summer so then I can atleast move them Around and they can keep the lawn mowed 🤣🤣

Your herb spiral is so awesome! You've inspired me to build one. Maybe over the winter project?!
The only thing I will say is it was really hard to keep the grass down around it so plan accordingly with either mulch or smooth The Rock's even with weed whacking it's really hard because some of my plants hang down so I have to lift them up.

I'm also planning an even bigger one for the front yard except for this one's going to have a walking path so I can walk around the spiral.

Also don't be like me and plant chamomile in it. 🤣🤣
I was a real big dumb dumb and put chamomile in it two years later I'm still picking plants out and it's wildly growing around the edges LOL I just make sure that I keep up with pruning it back.
