    Last year and the year before we worked on planting shrubs, several new trees and rose-vines.

    This year we're working on rooting new plants from all those that survived blight and so on and we're growing quite a few different veggies and fruits (hoepfully) from seeds.

    The only plant we've purchansed this year is a palm tree - we decided not to risk growing that from a seed. Seedlings around here don't handle the diseases and weather too well.

    I want to plant a lemon tree but we are still looking on the pos and cons and which one to go with.

    Other than that we will be planting a small palm tree on the front and the rest has been planted already.

    We are hoping for corn, tomatoes, cukes, peppers, radishes, spinach. I think that is about it. We are only allowed 12 x 16 in base housing.
