You’re not going to believe what my beautiful, red headed, very busy daughter did in her corner of a big city neighborhood!
Sara started out a couple years ago… carving out some of the grass in her front yard to begin to grow some heirloom seeds she got from her family in Mexico. That little tiny patch gradually grew and transformed.
They are a family of 6 (4 of them are hungry growing men & boys!) She is able to supplement fresh fruits and veggies for them right from her front yard. In her backyard she has mature citrus trees for the best oranges, lemons, lime, tangerines and grapefruit you’ve ever tasted! One son even has a small business selling the citus to a local juice bar!
Well, the neighbors have been watching and the relationships in the neighborhood are growing too! 🙂
Sara’s creativity didn’t stop with farming her yard.
This entrepreneurial gal hosted a “Sister’s Supper” for her entrepreneurial friends who had cottage businesses. They were invited to set up small tables in the garden with some of their unique creations to sell.
Late afternoon summer breeze, music, tablecloths, picnic blanket, sundresses with patio chairs scattered around was so inviting!
Sara prepared fresh delicious produce from her garden, invited friends and neighbors and added wine! What a night to remember enjoying great company until the sun went down and many lingered when the garden turned magical with lights illuminating the space.
One of Sara’s many talents is that she is an amazing photographer, capturing the vitality and diversity that a little nurturing can accomplish. She has had a pair hummingbirds nest and grow their young and bees and other pollinators just love her yard!
Her pictures are worth a thousand words! Be inspired!… and then go farm your yard! Check out My Freckled Farm on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/myfreckledfarm/
