If I ever get my way I'm going to have who l knows how many gardens. A herb garden for herbal remedies for both livestock and human. A large produce garden for my house hold. A kitchen garden for all the herbs I use for cooking. and a community garden, for anyone that needs help.

Definitely "other", because I am a collector & preservationist. Two home plots, a large rural plot 6 miles away, and a large onion/garlic bed on a friend's property about 15 miles away... about 12,000 square feet total. I grow much more than I would need for my own use, because I grow a lot of varieties each year for seed. Funny thing is, the byproduct of that seed production is plenty of food to share with family & friends.

My rural plot is also a "sometimes flooded" garden too, which can turn it into a "scrap the plan & plant something else" garden with no advance notice. :barnie

I refuse to be categorized...... large by some standards, small by others. Wild life friendly as long as they leave my vegetables alone. Otherwise, down right grumpy and anti-social. It is a melting pot as to social, economic groups.

Sierra Nevada mountains, and Nevada high desert
I work the soil, adding manure, turn the soil over in a row, add water seeds or plants and stand back, the high desert is a hothouse. Plants started from seed are first in the green house, so the shallow soil they are in doesn't dry out.

Then there is just protecting the garden from the rabbits and chip monks and kangaroo rats.


The garden is set with an automatic watering system.

Please note that I didn't say that--YOU did. :old
