Default New house, new chapter

In a few weeks I'll move into this 1100 sq.ft. home in Vista CA on 1/4 acre. Plenty of room for bananas, fruits, vegetables, and ... in the few months of cooler weather it is amenable to hydroponics.

Congratz Richard. Looking forward to see what you lay out on that 1/4 acre.
Especially want to see how MR and RL low chill cherries do.
