Dave and I have relocated to Austin, from Chicago, where we had a large garden. We have been gardening since the 1970’s when we were first married. Our goal then as now was to have fresh food without chemicals and to enjoy nature right in the back yard. We have a good arrangement Dave gardens I cook what he has grown, and we both help each other when we need help. It works well.
When we were in Illinois our garden was the standard ground level garden beds with lots of hands and knees type of weeding and planting, harvesting and digging. Here in Austin we decided that to continue to garden into our retirement we would try something different.
