My garden patch is approximately 0.03673095 of an acre--yes, rather small compared to your parcel. I have been transforming the space into an edible garden over the last four years. The majority of the land is devoted to fruit trees, berry bushes and grape vines (represented by about 55 different varieties), but I also have annual vegetables interspersed throughout. No dig, through exposure to Charles, has been added to my gardening philosophy. I've included a photo which really doesn't show much, for it's impossible to take it all in through a single snapshot.
