My Beach Garden

I started gardening after we moved to Jacksonville Beach. I learned to use raised beds when the drainage is bad. I also learned that raised beds need more water and water more often. I got my chickens while living in Jax Beach. And now free-range them in the back yard.
Above is my harvest of heirloom Mustard greens and one egg from each of my girls.

Coal and the chickens and the kids share the backyard.

I worked hard to make my beach garden with raised beds and great compost. And I've been reading and researching for three years now. I look forward to the future where we will find a home and turn it into a homestead. We'll see if I can remember all I've learned.
