If you’re not fortunate enough to have a large garden area, backyard gardens can produce food, medicines and beauty. Here’s a picture of the raised beds in my backyard, which is an ever changing kaleidoscope as the seasons change. I harvest berries (cranberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, goji berries,red and black currants), fruit (apples and pears), rose hips, vegetables, flowers and herbs for tincturing and use in recipes as well as mushrooms. Tried growing ginger but no luck so far. I’ll keep trying.
