My father, Francisco 'Chiigo' Smith, an O'dham farmer, grew many traditional crops on my mother Margaret's ten acre allotment located near Sacaton, on the Gila River Indian Reservation in Arizona. My mother was an herbalist and traditional healer. My father grew corn, chiles, tepary beans, various types of squash, gourds, Pima wheat, melons and sugar cane. Together, they taught me the value of our traditional foods to our daily nutrition and way of life.

I hire a gardener to attend my large allotment plot near my home. The gardener designs, plants, harvests and maintains a vegetable and flower garden. It produces enough fruit and vegetables for me, my family and some friends over the entire year. The flowers are used in the house as decoration. I sometimes like working alongside the gardener. This costs 38,000 EUR per year.

Fresh borlotti beans from the allotment. One of the old guys gave me the seeds for these nearly ten years ago and I've kept them going since. They are by far our best beans.

https://flic.kr/p/7uSS1p | Whalley Abbey: Drawing without glasses! | This was a first. Summer School folk all around me and, stupidly, as is my wont..not wearing them all the time.... I'd put my glasses down somewhere earlier in the day and forgotten where! So that this drawing is any bit like at all is a miracle!!!! A particularly peaceful part of the Abbey Grounds, this..with a little wooden bridge, flowers and veg growing too, almost an allotment feel.. near the River's edge.

What a great idea ~ use a garden rake to mount oranges on for your fruit-loving birds!  I probably would tie this to a tree that's close by so you could observe the birds while they're eating.

Top 15 Food Plants That Grow in the Shade - Good list! Greens and root veggies. The greens I grow in sunny places (darn near everywhere here) consistently need shade cloth or row cover, so this makes sense to me.
