Wow, I just looked at your photos. I'm very impressed. Do you have any animals? chickens or etc.? Pardon me for asking, but if you wouldn't mind I would love to come by some time and see your garden in person to help me better plan my own. Let me know. If not, no worries.

SoCalDan: Hi Chris. Welcome to this site, I live just down the road from you in Corona. Good luck in starting your garden - watch out it's addictive!
Hey Freedom Gardeners I am looking for a few good writers and or co-editors for this site. I really could use help answering folks questions (have over 30 submitted questions in queue!) and writing articles about all aspects of growing your own food. Email if interested. Thanks and happy growing!
Recent news about using radiation on spinach and lettuce was apparently my tipping point. Although now I'm reading more about this sort of thing there have been plenty of other things that are just as bad that should have prompted me to change.In any case I have about 4000 sq ft I could use. Granted its on a pretty steep hill. I'm thinking of starting with a few small raised flower beds and see how that works out. That much land would grow more then my family needs so I don't think I will use that much of it. I will likely plant some ornamental local plants to look nice and be water efficient. Better then the weeds that are currently on it.I'll post some photos of my front yard and will hopefully get some ideas from you all about what I can do there. I have a grass in the front and back. Probably about about 2000 sq ft. I would like to replace 1500 of it with local plants. I have a large dog and a small child so I need to leave a some area for playing and running around.
