This is my Pacific Northwest no dig garden, zone 8b, on a .3 acre lot. Our growing conditions are very similar to those in Britain, so following along with Charles' planting at Homeacres is especially fun. Lately our pattern is a dry, hot summer followed by a wet, cold winter - we ask a lot of our garden plants! I enjoy growing a range of vegetables, berries and other foragables in my "suburban hedgerow", a few fruit trees, and citrus in my greenhouse. To me, making homemade compost is just as enjoyable as growing plants, and my chickens are happy to contribute!
