Those raised beds and the other beds, plus all the trees, promise some high yields.
It was a very good decision to take this step. (BTW (my garden is about the size of your driveway so I know that it is not a tiny spot and can give a good yield with good planning).

Everything about that is permaculture. I'd love to know how many calories you are pulling off of that space every year. I would expect that once your trees are mature, it will be hundreds of thousands of organic, nutrient dense calories.
And every dollar you don't spend at the store is a dollar in your pocket -- untaxed.
Those pictures made my day.

What I'm curious about, is where did you build your shop???
I saw all those cool projects and then they were gone ?
You must have built a shop and moved the jeep inside ? Right ?
I mean there are priority's in life ... heck anyone can grow fruits and vegi's... But restore a 60 year old jeep!!! That takes skill....
Sorry Josh, couldn't resist teasing you there. Super job on transforming your driveway!
