The garden we are trying to achieve is primarily an edible and organic landscape, interspersed with some flowers for color and attracting wildlife. As you walk up the front yard brick pathway a cottage garden may come to mind, but as you enter the courtyard, a tropical setting and kitchen garden greet you.
The backyard has open space for family games with gardens and fruit trees on three sides. The very back corner is the composting area. We grow winter and summer vegetables, with the winter vegetables being our favorite. At this time of year the winter vegetables will have been pulled and the summer vegetables will just be getting started. Our fruit includes figs, persimmons, avocados, oranges, mandarins, Suriname cherries, bananas, apples, pears, grapes, guavas, blueberries and others. I like to think of us as urban farmers.
