My parents have a proper homesteady garden. My mom send me some unsolicited pics, and this is how a garden should look! Nice neat rows, lots of tomatoes, and my dad hiding from the camera there on the right.
Compare that to my edibles, which are all in separate containers but well, ran out of room, and are trying to take over. This little corner contains: 5 pepper plants, 2 tomato plants, 8 strawberry plants, 1 banana tree, 1 lemon cucumber, 4 blackberry brambles, 1 blueberry bush, and 1 fig tree.
