I have gardened organically on and off throughout my life and have left a trail of gardens everywhere I lived. I started my current garden in 2013 in Zone 7B in South Carolina. This is my largest garden ever at 1,755 square feet of planting beds for annual vegetables along with a 75 sq ft bed for strawberries and perennial herbs. We've also been adding fruit trees, pecan trees and blueberry bushes to our property.
I've been able to produce about 1,000 lbs yearly from my vegetable beds. This provides more than enough produce for the two of us to eat and preserve and share. I also garden year round using row covers and successional planting.
