Yay! Lookin' good! Remember, you can make a little space HUGE with vertical gardening. Check out straw bale gardening and google vertical gardens.

Aha, so that's why your name is hopshackgirl. I love your garden! You've got some really interesting crops going - I've never grown quinoa or canellini beans. I'm so jealous of your honeycrisp.

Thanks!

jewbacca--I know you are right about vertical, I need to get into that! I want to try hydro so I love the other thread you started.

Aubade--thanks :) Every September we brew a yummy strong IPA with our hops harvest, it's one of my favorite activities of the year. We've never done the beans or quinoa before either, I really hope it's not a total failure. And we are supposed to actually get a honeycrisp apple off the tree this year, there are some little ones growing so hopefully it will produce!

Wait? You can actually grow quinoa and beans and not just buy them from the store?! :)
Your garden is so unique! I'm jealous of so many things... hops, apple tree, just about everything else that you listed!
