As I ramp up more and more for the start of the gardening season, it is exciting to think about the potential of my little, backyard garden (likely not more than 8 ft by 18 ft, though I haven't measured it yet). But not in my wildest dreams have I thought that this was possible:

The potential is there! We could be growing so much of our own food! Now, my husband adamantly puts his foot down when I start mentioning chickens and goats (or sheep...hmmm, wonder if he'd go for that? I'm sure he'd love to wake up every morning to "baaaa baaaa"). He insists that I married a business man, not a farmer!
Nonetheless, even the amount that I can produce in my backyard garden, fresh in the summer, preserved for the winter... to be that much more self-sustaining, producing our own high-quality (not to mention, extremely cheap) food.
Did I mention I'm excited to get gardening this year?
Make sure to also visit this family's site, Path to Freedom. I found some great gardening articles in their Resources, as well as more inspiration!
Hat tip to Mrs. M for this fantastic video!
