Piston Alley Homestead

Growing our own - in Denver, Colorado.


When we found our house on Craigslist, we were intrigued by the fact that it came with a chicken coop. We'd known friends with chickens, but had no idea what it entailed. Adjacent to the coop, was a 20 x 15 garden lot with a fire pit in the middle.

I had grown up with my parents spending hours in their vegetable garden, but I hadn't done much growing on my own. Well, we dove in head first to what turned out to be a true "chaos garden" at it's best.
