Patricia, why is your garden "fried"?  Too much heat and not enough water?

Box gardening without boxes

Here is an interesting way to plot out a garden without building boxes. Water could be supplied to each area, the soil prepared with Lasagna method of soil preparation:

Patricia, this wonderful structure is exactly what I would like! It looks relatively simple to construct and, if proper engineered, would last for a long time. You obviously put it to good use. 

Your place in British Columbia is just about the same elevation as Spokane, only farther north. Do you have heavy snows? 

Just read the Farmer's Almanac saying we are going to have a cold winter.

A quacking aspen eould be awesome! In a rain storm you could duck under it for protection.

That's Quaking aspen, not Quacking aspen.  Haha!

Randall, a few days ago I read your blog about what you're doing with 120 acres.  Felt jealous.  Wow!  I would love to have 120 acres to decide what to do with.

I have a brother that always been kind to me and rejected the church we were raised in at an early age (although sadly, he still believes the bible).   He's in desperate need of a place to live and make a living from, so I would offer him a piece of it.   Don't think I would put conditions on him as to what he could do with it.

I would start growing fruit and nut trees, lots of vegetables & berries, trying several new things every year.

I would create a pond where I could raise catfish and trout to eat.  I'd probably raise several kinds of animals for eggs, milk, & meat.

With that much land, I would even start growing some flowers & trees that I enjoyed the beauty of, not just things to eat (smile:)  Quacking aspen comes to mind first.  Love the looks of that tree.

It's embarrassing to admit, but I was wondering what kind of structure you had Patricia.  A greenhouse didn't occur to me until Joan D mentioned it, but now it's obvious!  It's embarrassing because I've always wanted a greenhouse, but haven't yet built one.
