Mega Gardening Inspiration

Wow. Here is your inspiration for the day.

It's a YouTube video about a family who grows all their own food on one-fifth of an acre in a Los Angeles suburb. It's eight minutes long and well-worth every inspiring second.

If it wasn't raining outside right this minute, I'd zip out to my yard and start gardening like a wild woman. I hope it will inspire and encourage you, too.


And here is the family's blog. (Thanks, Lisa, for letting me know it appeared at the video's end!)

Wow! Well, neither you nor I live in a year round gardening area, but still. I am so impressed by these people and their dedication to their way of life. And I love how their neighbors went from thinking them all crazy people to appreciating them as something very special in their neighborhood, a true asset. It is inspiring.

That is a great concept, with one exception. I wouldn't want my three grown kids to live with me forever :)
