Last year, we started our orchard backyard culture. The end of last year some of the trees started not doing so well, so we had to figure out the problem and a solution. There were fights between us regarding this (and cause this is one expensive hobby). So after working this out on paper, we're flip flopping the tree placement with the vegetable garden. In addition to that, we're changing out our garden beds. It's been a bit frustrating to deal with, but we're rolling with the punches because sometimes you just have to learn from your mistakes. We aren't professionals by any means, but we (mainly Ben) does all the research he can so we have a thriving garden to enjoy.
While our backyard looks insanely messy now, I'm hoping in a few months, it will look good again. Now we just have to wait for Ben's rotator cuff to heal so that he can get back to digging. I can't wait to get everything planted back in the ground; all our trees our currently in pots again!
