Oh wow, that's gorgeous!  I love the flowers surrounding the veggie garden.  You need to do a separate post on this so more folks will see this.  Love it!

What a difference!  And as is true in my house regarding DH:  "If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself!"  It's beautiful!

Wow!  Do you have a day job?  Because this sounds like a full-time job in and of itself!

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

That's a great question, dulcet.  Smiley  This is what we're doing in our retirement.  It keeps us busy!  We did work full time for the first few years when we got started but were only able to handle potted vegetables and a few sheep at the time. 

I would encourage anyone with no space wishing for a garden to consider growing in containers.  Here's our back deck a few years ago, it's full of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash, herbs and citrus.
