Are you interested in having a lawn out back?
There's an area that is lawn like between the house and the garden space.
Are you just planting for vegetables or for a pretty garden area?
Mostly veggies but I'd toss some flowers into the mix just for the fun of it.
Do you have kids?
No, not yet but we're looking at fostering kids 0-4 and I have some young family members who pop in (under 6 years old). Also, play space: we live beside a hayfield so I'd tell them to run around over there. Not the field exactly, just a grassy are beside our house before you get to the field.
Do you have a rototiller?
Nope, but my Dad does, he'd bring his over. So I'd be willing to till once or twice to get the land "ready" but not something I'd want to keep up. I've always read it's better not to till anyways.
Are you planning on fruit/nut trees? Herbs?
I'm going to plant an herb/salad garden in the front yard. Our house is small and front door opens straight into the kitchen/DR. All I need to do is take a couple steps out the front door to reach lunch. The BIG garden would be at the back of our property. I'm also thinking of planting blueberry bushes near our pine trees in the front. (Need to look into this but I vaguely remember reading something about acidity and it being good.)
Let us know which direction you go.
