New gardening style for the future?

2008 yard drawing with barn and golf cart.

So, will this translate into a more hands-off gardening style in the future?


The plan so far is to be less spread out as we started here. Having a large garden was great for doing multiple experiments but the new style will start with a large fenced in area to keep predators out.

We might also not grow as much for the Winter if the Athens farmers market turns out to be as good as the word on the street says it is.
