Our tiny Phoenix yard is about 1039 square feet. I have to admit I have made very little use of most of the space thus far. We have a small garden and the chicken coop. The rest of the yard is full of dirt ( dog poop the girls need to clean) and bushes that were planted here when we bought the space.
We don’t really use the yard. When I envisioned a backyard homestead I dreamed of sitting on the porch having sun tea and watching the chickens scamper around. Right now we are hop, skip and a jump from Sanford & Son Down on the Farm…
So in the spirit of “failing to plan is planning to fail”, I have made an initial plan for the yard! My girls are still lobbying for goats but I am not sure how the neighbors (and the HOA) would feel about that; I’m lucky I have the hens. So this plan does not include a goat area, but I have one. 😉
We will also have rabbits on the porch in the cooler months and I’d like to have a space for quail (for meat & eggs). I’m still trying to decide if “cage free” quail is workable. Thoughts?
If you click on the picture you can see the full sized picture. I’d love to hear your feed back on the plan!
