Replanted this area, moving the roses from their vulnerable place away from the house to this more protected spot.  So far the deer has not approached this close to the house.

I extended the fencing around all of the raised beds in the backyard.  Not much planted in these beds yet: Some sweet potatoes, mung beans for green manure, tawny daylilies.

I love the work you are doing.  I am currently in San Antonio, still a beginner and sponge for information and knowledge.  It is always great to see examples of permaculture in action in the city.

I'm so glad!  I'm definitely learning as I'm going, making lots of crazy experiments (Papaya, Cassava, tropical Passionfruit, Natal Plum from seed).  I love working in this urban space.  Eventually I hope to expand out with guerilla food forestry in the adjacent green belt.  It could be such a beautiful neighborhood park if cared for.

I'm thinking of commandeering this sunny patch of easement for corn and squash:
