Watch while this homeowner transforms his backyard from a beautiful grassy area requiring a lot of maintenance and water into an intensive self watering system that produces an abundance of crops in a very small area. The yard is still beautiful but now productive. He takes you step by step in the planning and preparation of the garden. This work now will pay off now and in the years to come by being easy to maintain as well as producing healthy food for the family. It functions well and is aesthetically pleasing as well.
As more people become concerned about the cost and the quality of mass-produced food there is a owing tend to grow your own and in small urban lots it takes imagination and determination to make it work. Growing a lot on a small footprint has developed ways to grow up not out with garden towers containers, hydroponic systems, trellises, self watering systems. etc. I will be exploring these and sharing what I find. Happy Gardening!

I am an RN with over 50 years of experience. I still work 3 12 hour shifts a week at a busy hospital. I owe my good health and longevity to good genes and a healthy lifestyle. My Dad was a chef and I very early learned to cook healthy primarily vegetarian foods. I love to garden and grow my own healthy food. Digging in the dirt is both healthful and therapeutic. Good for us and the environment. I hope you enjoy visiting this site and find the information interesting and helpful.
