W20 – Pretty flowers and Perma-culture dreams

I love the plants in our backyard, it has been really well set up and maintained by the previous owners of the house. One of my fear is to kill all those pretty flowers while trying to not do so.. We want to add a vegetable garden/compost/chicken in a Perma-culture way over the next couple of years in order to increase our food autonomy. I know i am maybe being ambitious here since i have never had my own garden before.. I have fond memories of my great grandma’s garden in Nantes with a lot of flowers, fruits and veggies. We used to visit her with my mom and little bro after she picked us up from school on Friday’s. Fresh apples, cherries, strawberries, redcurrants, tomatoes.. Yum Yum
