I bought my first house about 5 years ago. It was the first time in my adult life that I had any real space for a garden and since I live in Los Angeles, the temperature is perfect to grow some of my own food all year long. I do not consider myself an expert, but through experimentation I think I can create a lovely yard that will also provide some tasty food.
These are the chronicles of creating that dream garden of mine.
