Living the life. A backyard-turned-farm, whatever your version of it may be, is certainly a lot of work — but it also provides a rich source of homegrown entertainment. Why go out, when you can enjoy a delicious local, organic dinner right in your backyard, steps from where the ingredients were grown? A Formerly Weedy Lot Now Brims With Edibles and Honeybees
Lauren Dunec Design added this to What to Do This Fall to Build Healthy Garden Soil
Fall is a good time to start a compost system in your backyard for two reasons: You’ll most likely have a good quantity of “brown” materials on hand from fallen leaves to layer with kitchen scraps, and the pile will have enough time to sufficiently break down before spring planting. The wire cylinder compost system in this backyard in Austin, Texas, was made from two lengths of roughly 4-foot-wide wire mesh. Curved to form a pair of upright cylinders with 3- to 4-foot diameters and staked in place, the system is simple and inexpensive to install.See how to get started with composting

To create a quick compost pile that will break down during the winter, collect only the browns and greens, and stack them like a layer cake, lightly dampening each layer. A good size to start with is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet (about 1 meter by 1 meter by 1 meter). There should be an equal amount (by weight) of browns and greens.Once you’ve started a compost pile, like the two seen at this urban farm, it will break down over the next few months with little maintenance. You can turn it every once in a while to aerate, or give your compost oxygen. If your area freezes during the winter, your compost pile will still continue to break down, though more slowly. The edges of the pile will be the same temperature as the environment. When spring comes, the edges will thaw and restart the decomposition process.Since our two piles are on dirt, the worms and bugs do the aerating for us as they dig through and break down the piles. When spring arrives, you should have a nice heap of rich compost for your spring planting.Get on a Composting Kick (Hello, Free Fertilizer!) | Browse compost bins

12. Use Metal Cages for Compost and Leaf LitterDon’t have room for a three-bin compost system? In this Austin, Texas, backyard farm designed by B. Jane Gardens, bins made of galvanized wire mesh corral leaf litter and garden clippings for a compost system that’s more organized than a simple pile. When compost is ready for adding to beds, one could tilt the lightweight mesh to shovel from the bottom.
