That's absolutely awesome! I would love to have a little ranch/farm like yours but I'm inherently lazy and don't think I'd keep at it long enough for anything to successfully grow. When we get a house, I think we might start a (much smaller!) veggie/fruit/herb garden and I'll remember this post as inspiration Smiley

I am in love an awe! You are living my dream!  Cheesy
My garden is looking quite miserable, especially since I live in Australia and it is freezing at my house.  Sad I went from having fast growing tomatoes in Summer to the slowest growing winter veges.
Our soil is alright, very clay like so it's solid when dry and sticky and clumpy when wet. Make weeding a major pain in the butt!
I did make a raised bed out in our backyard but it is our pet goat's domain at the moment so all it has  in it are potatoes. Need to dig them up actually......
Do you have a blog? I love salivating over other people's hobby farms, it inspires me and gives me hope that someday we will have one too!

I don't have a blog (yet) but am being encouraged to start one.  If you enjoy reading about people's farm adventures, I recommend you check out http://chickensintheroad.com/ if you haven't already!  I start my day with her over coffee every morning.

Hubby has been begging me to move from the suburbs of Chicago to southern Missouri and I think this just put a point in his favor. This is fantastic and I would love to have a garden like yours!  I by no means have a green thumb, but would love to learn!

Whoops! I hear him coming and have to post this before he sees it!
