I have a garden off my kitchen, and like to grow things that I can throw into a salad.
I fall somewhere in the middle. My place is certified as a Wildlife Habitat by the Nat'l Wildlife Federation, (which means that I provide habitat, food, and water). There are lots of birds, and an occasional skunk or opossum.
Any and all of the above!
I put in drip for the last untamed "lower forty" of my property, which is on a slope. There are mature jacaranda and coral trees, pomegranate, loquat, figs, olives, orange, and grapefruit. I'm in the planning stages of planting a micro vineyard, and would like to build a little studio and deck down there eventually. I have big ideas, but it's more than I can do at any one time, so I just do what I can.
I live in Lemon Grove on a half acre that looks east over the mountains. I have quite a few varieties of citrus, including some trees from the original grove. I putter around with drought-resistant landscaping and organic gardening.
