We have been very busy with cleaning up the backyard. We really did buy a jungle. It's almost like going treasure hunting though—finding all kinds of junk and hoping to reuse as much as possible. For example, found a pile of windows.....we are tossing the broken ones and saving the unbroken ones for a mini greenhouse or a solar dehydrator idea that Jake has in the works. Speaking of Jake.....he just got an instagram solely for urban farming stuff. Follow him— @thehippiehomestead. I also periodically instagram pictures of our gardening/yardwork/urban farming stuff. You can follow me— @exterra88. Here's a picture of what our garden looks like at the moment—radishes, lettuce, and kale. These are hardy vegetables and we have been waiting to plant everything else til later in the spring. Should be doing that soon! Hope all of you plant at least one thing this spring—even if it's just a pot of herbs to have on your apartment porch or doorstep.
