Growing local

Sorry for the mess haha, but here is my plan for this springs plot. "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail" a great quote I use in my daily life. Top left is a plan for a chicken coop this year, second to the left is our existing plot, which didn't get too much use last annual. After that is plans for fruit, tree bearing, and herbs. Thoughts to extend plot out to be in line with concrete slab. Bottom left we have raised beds to be implemented with high rotation, some fruit trees in the middle of the coop and beds, we already have 2 mango trees, one mandarin, a mulberry, and about 5 banana trees. Plans also include, compost pile & worm farm, work bench area etc.

Did you check out McDowall Manor on Youtube?

Agreed, and being able to watch my YouTube videos ( have been following Urban Farmer Curtis Stone ) just makes it easier to jot down tips, tricks & useful info to help. The visualisation aspect is a big thing for me personally.

It's a good way to stay focussed too Brendan - less chance of stuff ending up everywhere.
