If you had to describe your garden, forest garden, or homestead in ONLY 3 WORDS...
What would these words be?

The 3 words I use to describe our 6-year-old food forest in Tenerife:
1. Bio-diversity
2. Oasis
3. Abundance

Looking forward to read your 3 words...

I was wondering what you mean by “freeballing”, Brian.
I don’t think you meant what is the “general use” of the word... 😅

SAME! Still trying to finish the first 4X4 plot. Then there's the second forked plot to do. Past that? Maybe it'll be more fun when I don't have to mess about with paperwork.
It's good soil, but I am steadily making All The Mistakes. I'll get there.
Good luck with yours!
