I live in the foothills on the edge of a small town, backed up to a small mountain range. According to the USDA Hardiness Zone map, I am either in Zone 5b or 6a (I border two zip codes).
I garden in my yard. Since 2007, my husband and I have been getting rid of sections of our lawn and creating raised beds to grow food. Each year we’ve added at least 1 new bed. So far we are probably only utilizing about 25% of our yard to grow food. We have have a small 70’s ranch style house on a 0.19 acre lot. There are 2 adults, 2 children, 1 cat, and at least 6 chickens residing here at any given time (we hope to adopt a new dog soon).
