Preparing For A Potager

Last year, my eye was on creating a lovely backyard to entertain in. This year, I'm thinking almost entirely about feeding my family. I've read about urban homesteading, and the amazing things that folks can grow on a 1/4 acre, and even from a balcony. So, we bit the bullet, and moved all our planter boxes to the center of the yard, in anticipation of creating a potager as the focal point of our suburban backyard.

My dear blogging friend, Annalea Hart has a wonderful potager in her backyard, and has served to inspire our little venture, as have these other ideas off my Pinterest board:
