I love mixing edibles in with my ornamental plants, so you will see a lot of tomatoes, peppers, and fruits planted among my flowers. I had a few requests to pan out more so you could see more of the complete garden, so I tried to do that a lot In this video. I also walked you into my side yard “food forest” area and into the back yard where I have several raised garden beds. I try to practice permaculture principles as much as I can. I’m not exactly hard and fast (see drip tube irrigation for example!), but I find my plants actually do better since I adopted more permaculture methods in my beach sand yard.
My entire property is only about 1/5 acre, actually 8756 square feet. When I subtract out the footprint of the house, driveway, sidewalks, patio, etc, I’m left with about 5000 square feet of “dirt”, or potential as I like to call it. Most of what you see in the video is work I did since November of 2019, so 7 months in the making! I still have a lot of work to do out there, which I will get back to as soon as I finish the never-ending tile project I mentioned in the video.
