My dream in the city:
A quarter acre, with a small house and a couple small outbuildings (shed, shop, greenhouse). Preferably within a good bike ride of the city and of work.
Rows of vegetables. Fruit trees. Berry patch. Chickens. A couple goats. A field of rice. An ornamental border.
Grape vine on a trellis. A place to sit right outside my door and drink tea and look at the garden.
A corner lot - combining a streetside stoop on one side with a big yard on the other that is visible from the street. I would like to chat with neighbors when they walk past.
A big, deciduous shade tree on the south side of the house.
