    THAT. That was very good info, Joe. Even you put it there for Mass, thanks! I'll sneak away a few morsels to use. I can't use earthen berms (all brick patio), but I can take advantage of a few things.

    I like the location of the Northern strip but I guess one thing to keep in mind is how the sun moves across your yard during the day AND the season. I don't know if I would venture recommend any location in particular. You know your yard best.

    There's one section I didn't photograph that get's full sun all day. It's literally right outside the front door. But it's ALL dirt.. and ugly. Probably the best spot for a pretty GH.

    Oh man, I wish owning a house wasn't such a far off prospect for me.
    Ditto what everyone else says, adorable kid.

    I can assure you Trav, 90% of the permaculture majors at Evergreen are substantially more fried than you. I have a nasty habit of packing a lot of info into too small a space - it's just my fancy vernacular that's tripping you up. Once we find you a few how-to books on the matter you won't have trouble following along. To keep things PG I'll just say that a lot of those books are written to the lowest common denominator of the organic/natural foods/treehugging crowd.

    I think with a little creativity you can manage, Katie. Ask me sometime on the chatbox if you think about it and we can toss around a few ideas. Off the top of my head, I'd say you could use a similar concept of seeded hay bales, perhaps secured in raised-bed-like frames, and turn them into low planted walls or "grass sofas." There's a blog I read that's full of ideas that you could use... I'm just too sleepy to remember what it is.

    PS - Travis, go ahead and PM me your addy, the link for your greenhouse kit, and anything else that seems relevant, and I'll see what kind of info I can come up with in the morning.
