To follow the previous post I wanted to include this amazing garden from This Old House. If you do not get this magazine, change that fast. This is one of my favorite magazines that comes every month. I cannot explain how excited I get.


I have learned so much from them and love their ideas…but my favorite part is the cheap house that would be a great remodel in the back of the magazine. I always flip their first.

But this last month’s issue was about gardening and this couple have my dream garden as far as the design and setup so I hope you enjoy. If they only had chickens than it would be exactly my idea of the perfect home garden/farm.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
