Well, it's the size it is and the same goes for the land... it's an urban plot so we don't have e.g. an orchard for a leach field. Most of the back garden is 30 cm of soil on top of concrete rainwater catchment cisterns.

Hi Vanessa! My husband does have a food forest but it's outside town and he doesn't manage to go there very often, so it's planted with a law of the jungle approach: whatever survives the neglect gets to flourish come the rains (little tasty animals would definitely not make it). But it's good for burying the decomposed humanure.
