I am in my late 30's I bought my house about 5 years ago, and it has been a long time getting the land ready to garden. I run a computer company in my spare time (about 50/50 with the garden)
I have a small garden about 40x60 and I have only been gardening myself for 1 12 years but I helped my Mother garden for many years in the 80's I am gardening in heavy clay soil that I reclaimed from heavy underbrush and a few Squirrel planted black walnut trees. about 30 feet south of my garden is my peach orchard, I have about 9 trees of various types of peach. I also have a pair of Apple trees, that mostly produce crabapples, or small granny smith, not sure. the orchard came with the house, and I have yet to eat any peaches from it because of poor maintenance over the last 20 years, I have gradually pruned back the trees and I think this year looks pretty good for me! My mom always did 100% organic and I am the same! lots of insects down here (I mostly gardened in SD and WA with my mother) I live in a rural part of a small town near charlotte NC and so I am not allowed to have any animals in the city limits (I may get a duck or two anyway, what can they do, tell me to get rid of it?)

I live in: United States

My zone is: z7 Charlotte
