I had a girl come out on Saturday to visit with me about my garden. It needs some serious love... and since I just feel like I need some major hand holding, I figured she was totally worth the time and money. Plus, she knew my husband's late grandparents. That's always a plus.

She came out and we talked about my lofty goals. Goals that included a backyard orchard, an abundance of crops, aromatic herbs... and chickens.

My HOA says no chickens. But my neighbors... they say that so long as they are in my yard and I don't have a rooster, they don't care. I love my neighbors.

My husband is fully on board. So we are underway with our plans to revamp our side yard. Here is the satellite "before"...

I can't wait for this fall. I know that the trees won't be overloaded with fruit.. but the garden should be plentiful... so if you are in the area, feel free to stop by! :o)

I am ready to become a little more sustainable... be ready for updates as they happen!

When you're overwhelmed with eggs, call me! I've been looking for a new "egg lady." Mine quit the business and I have a huge pile of egg cartons for no reason now. :(
