Thanks, all, for the suggestions on what to do with my "bare patch". A greenhouse would be nice, but my kids have 6 of them with all the winter greens I need. The shed in the picture is my wood shed (I built). It used to be the site of a hen house, but I have never wanted animals--chickens or goats, etc.
I'm thinking trees, perhaps 4 of them--fruit and nut. You've got me thinking chestnut. I need a new apple tree and a plum. I don't have an English walnut either.
I've already hauled 30 wheelbarrow loads of dirt with about 10 more to go, I think. I'm getting the dirt from a huge berm mound across the road. It can't be mowed and is/was an eyesore.
Kathy, I´m a town person, and the neighbours are mostly easy here. If the apartments are reasonably sound proof there´s a certain rhythm and comfort hearing the neighbours move about , knowing I can ask them if I need help. They´ll ask for help too. Most of the time this block feels like a small village.
Then again, I could never afford driving lessons or a car, so I can´t move to a place without public transport.
Nice place , Randall.
Your shed in the back would make a nice chicken coop or small barn for a couple of goats. I've thought about getting a couple of alpine goats, male and female. However, some goats can produce two gallons of milk per day, which I wouldn't know what to do with all that milk except give em to my neighbors.
As for your round area, how abt building a small green house with solar panels? That way you can have year round vegetables. .... and a small windmill can generate energy too.
Like Plinius, I'm also a little Jealous of the land and locations most of you have, but I'm also glad you have it.
Look at that! All that space and not a car in sight!
With this nice weather we're having, I began tackling a backyard project I've been pondering for awhile. Here's a photo taken this AM. At one time, this spot had a semi-sunken above ground swimming pool with a deck. After the kids were gone, I took it down and made a pond. That lasted 10 years. I buried rocks and filled it with dirt (which has since sunk), and tried to make some sort of wild garden out of it. It became too wild. I'm now adding more dirt (after burning it down) by the wheelbarrow loads. The question is, NOW WHAT?! Any suggestions?
I´m jealous, such a wonderful place, Kathy!
