This is a diagram of the Herb Circle, Potager, and Tropical Vegetable Area (which surrounds the other two).  I have constrained the proportions to 800 pixels wide, but the actual file is nearly 3000 pixels wide.  It can be downloaded and printed as an 8.5" x 11" page.  If you did that, and put it to the left of a printout of the Melon Patch, you would have a plan for the entire back yard.  They overlap just a bit.  f you look at the downloaded gif or print it out, you can read the words clearly.  As you can see, it's not the amount of space you have, it's how you use it.  In fact, any more space would be more than I could handle!


Below are the two stitched together - you can't read the words, but you can see the shapes.  This gif is over 5000 pixels wide in actuality, and is clear is downloaded and displayed, it just won't fit on the screen all at once.  The north side yard extends 9 feet to the right of the patio.
