After a few months in the apartment, we struck a deal on our first home, and soon we began packing our boxes. Our new house came with a cute backyard, with a deck boxing it in like a small Japanese zen garden. With tons of kudzu growing behind our house, we set root to build our garden. My partner built the first garden bed, then came a second, and third. Between the first and the second garden bed, we used chicken coop wires to create a crescent shape for climbing vegetables.
