Raeann from My Simple Victory (mysimplevictory.blogspot.com) has a small property in a suburb near Winnipeg, Manitoba that really packs a punch. Whenever she tells someone everything she is growing on the property they say, "Wow! You must have a big yard!" she responds by telling them that it is just "well planned".

|grape vines crawling on fence, mint, strawberry batch, raspberry patch, and future chicken coop site.|
Raised garden beds (she made them her self!) Using some recycled materials they only cost her $100 for all 3, which included a Starbucks iced latte. Tomatoes, squash, and green beans.
Isn't this a great use of space?
Green beans, potatoes, and carrots.
