|Nap, hmm... it's a standard lot size around here, though a lot of suburbs have 1/4 acre instead. I've never measured my gardens specifically, I just know the lot size from the tax bills According to Google (I had to look it up), 1/8 acre is 5445 square feet or 505.8 square meters. My house is covering about 1300 square feet, plus the garage, driveway, and a big area under trees that's too shady to grow veggies, so I probably have about 2000 square feet of garden-able space in all. Some of that is still lawn despite my best efforts, and the rest is divided up between rows, walkways, and some large hedges.
Thanks for the encouragement, guys! I didn't want to bore people with an article too similar to my first one, but I've learned so much about winter gardening that I just wanted to share. So, is anyone else here growing food over the winter this year?
