I'd have to agree with John, Jwalker. Your imagination is wonderful to behold, and your fine construction is just awesome. Thanks for sharing pics of your beautiful place.
Tiarella, not sure it grows well where you are, but we've a friend who started off years ago simply making pestos off his basil. The business exploded, and we're talking 20 years or so, I think.
The cargo container is a good idea, guys, but way past my pay grade. I'm searching for an underground basement, ideally, or a backyard shed as suggested by you, Tiarella...much more doable. Thanks, all!
