    Very nice gardens everyone! I wish I had that much area for mine, I will be lucky if I get a 4'x4' planter going, maybe some pots going.
    I will have some fruit in a couple of years; I have an apple, pomagranete, lemon, mandarin and a grape vine this past summer. I hope to have success with them and add a few more fruit trees.
