I recently put up a video documenting the second site where my wife and I farm, which is .6 acres in total.  Our largest garden is .1 acre and is starting to hit a stride.  We are annual dominant for now to help pioneer the space, build soil and hammer back weeds and are moving section by section into succession with elderberries, black currants, perennial veggies and a ton more.  
Let me know what you think, we're excited with what can happen in 3 years!

Cool stuff.  I've seen some of your videos on YouTube before including the one where you hand dug a pond.  But I was wondering if you could explain building that micro pond in this garden.  I would like to incorporate some of these in my space.  Thanks, Aaron
