    This is good for me to keep in mind! I too have forgotten how easily I crammed too much stuff into the garden before I learned how important proper spacing is. In just 5 more months I will be leaving my 12 month growing season in Sydney Australia and going back to the US. Then we will begin the hunt for our paradise in the mountains of Kentucky. Striving for lots and lots of room and peace to be creative and become sueiltnabas! As always I loved your writing and it inspires me to do so as well 🙂
