Hi everyone! As part of applying for the Great American Farm tour I was going through photos from the last four years and put together this slide show. Enjoy!

I really like that you show that you went in small stages that built upon each other.  So many people are exposed to gardening through things like HGTV where a team of people come in and overnight transform a yard with big equipment and expensive potted plants.  Even online there is a tendency to post before and after photos without all the in between stages.  I like that you show you start with a couple garden beds and seeds sprouting in a window.  Seeing all the stages as you went from a barren suburban yard to a lush wood with exotic wildlife (chickens are jungle birds) is impressive without being intimidating. I like the background music, too.

That's a really good point I didn't even think about! We did everything our selves as time allowed. The only time we used big equipment was to remove the driveway (which was pitched wrong and causing our basement to flood). Now the water runs down toward the fruit trees.

mega! very cool transformation and proof, that it doesn't take a huge piece of land to start gardening.
