So here’s a map of the main growing area at My Home Harvest HQ, just to give you an idea of the layout and what I grow. I have areas dedicated to trees, berries and perennials (such as rhubarb & asparagus) as well as the area for herbs and vegetables. The chooks have their own closed in run, though they free range around the yard most days.
The garden beds are all raised beds made in reclaimed cyprus, apart from the raspberries which are in metal wicking beds. I have marked the 10m2 that is the location for my 10 in 10 challenge which I will be updating you about throughout the year.
The garden has evolved over the past 7 years, and I am sure I will continue to refine what I grow, how I grow it and where I grow it after each growing season. There have been failures and successes and I learn with everything I plant.
You don’t need a large garden to grow your own food – having a bigger space allows me to have fruit trees and the dedicated chook run – but the 10 in 10 challenge and other posts about the deck garden that I help to look after at my local community centre, will hopefully inspire you to get growing whatever the space you have.
I look forward to sharing my growing journey with you, and hope that it inspires you to start your own edible garden.
