Preliminary Farm plan
This overlay on the overhead photo is my current thinking about how I want to use the land -- primarily the half acre north portion of the former pasture. Here are my thoughts:
1. Orchard: Raspberries, Boysenberries, Filbert and peach trees. Perennial beds.
2. Carport, shop (2 rooms), barn.
3. RV parking.
4. 3000 gallon water tank to catch water from the roof for the garden
5. Patio and picnic table
6. Small chicken house.
7. Chicken run or orchard.
8 - 9 First year garden (1/4 acre)
8. Garlic, shallots, carrots
9. Early stuff -- lettuce, broccoli, cabbage, etc.
10. Beans, corn, squash
11. Strawberries, corn, squash
12. Reserve for garden in 2 years. Chicken run with moveable house, Perhaps a grain plot
13 - 14 ???
15. 1/2 acre part of house rental.
16. Small building with prta-pottie.
