Our Urban Garden

 We live on a tiny city lot in the high deserts of Wyoming. Thankfully our house is tinier and our yard is ok sized. We moved in in Oct of last year and haven't had a chance to do much with the land. We have planted two pear trees , one is a dwarf should grow 8 to 10 feet tall, 3 raspberry plants with room to add six more and more room to add black berries. We would like to have potted blueberries too. They need more water then we give to the other plants so it would be best to keep them in moist pots. Behind the berry patch is 3 lilac bushes, we are going to wait and see what colors they turn out to be, if they are all the same color we will get the other colors to mix in. In the front yard we have a huge peace sign with Radishes, carrots, broccoli, Brussels's Sprouts and onions.
 In the fall we will plant a ton of garlic. We also have two beds of lettuce. We are planning on adding 3 raised beds to the west side of the house and putting the lettuce in there for the winter. Our goal would be to have something growing all year round but we shall see. We aren't going to do much with the back yard, 2 apple trees and 2 cheery trees and if we are lucky we will be able to put in a chicken coop next summer. I found this amazing 1950's truck cab that I've had my eye on as a coop. =)
