This garden was the biggest thing I've ever done in a yard. It was all trees and bushes in the beginning.

"Glad you enjoy the pictures.I cant seem to be able to add captions to each piture so ill answer here.This is in Garden Valley Idaho.The thistle plant are the first artichokes Iv grown.The hoop house is made using railraod ties holding cattle panels bent over and tied together with wire nuts.Going 16 feet is what this is over lapping the panels.We had no heat in there but it really extended the season.I knew a person that had commercial green houses and had built this in his yard.Thats where I go"

"Thank you for the stroll through your yard. I really like the natural country setting. Could you answer some questions? Could you please EDIT each picture to let us know about what we are viewing? Where are you located? I like your sloped/terraced garden with some raised beds. LUCKY YOU, having a hoop house. Do you start all your plants from seed? What is the thistle plant in picture #3? I LOVE picture #5 and #7 with the chickens and goats. ABSOLUTELY charming!"

"Thank you for stopping by and viewing my yard art. Your very kind comments are greatly appreciated. I wish I could walk around your beautiful property with you. I would love you to show me how you made your hoop house. I would like to try it this Spring."
