On Planning the Garden

One of the motivating factors for moving to this new house was the wonderful yard.
The plan is to have a little urban garden where we don't have to buy produce (at least all summer and spring.)
Back Side Yard- Tree Fort is almost complete!
   
Planning is not easy.  We have 3 lots, which is just a hair shy of an acre! 

I keep changing my mind about what I want and where I want it and I believe I'm driving my husband crazy showing him pictures on Pinterest or yet another gardening book.

The kids and I went to the Splash Park last week and afterwards stopped at the Bernice Garden in the Quapaw district.  (Of course our main reason was to get some of Arkansas' best ice cream at Loblolly Creamery...)


The gardens are so cute!
Beautiful sculptures and structures made from reclaimed and re-purposed materials,

There was a tiny baby Praying Mantis on her finger!

More ideas.

So far I've planted two apple and two peach trees in the back.  I want to get about six more fruit trees for the front yard.   And the chickens are loving their new space...

I'm not sure our garden will have much yield this year if we even get the ground tilled, but next year?
