So here we are 8 weeks in, the Collards are definitely the stars of this show. I've been building my dream garden in my head. I want a picket fence around the front yard and raised beds in the front yard with mulched paths AND NO LAWN! Front yard is the only spot on my property that gets sunlight all day. I need to check into the zoning law and see if it's ok to take out the lawn. Or at least part of the lawn. I think raised beds all around a small patch of grass or ground cover would be pretty. I want to mix flowers and edibles, with wooden trellis for the vines to grow vertically.
Of course I don't have the money to build that all at once, that's why it's a dream garden.
