Greetings from sunny Florida! I don't personally know if your dream is possible, but Mother Earth News featured a cover story article in their Oct./Nov. issue about a man who was making $20,000 per year growing ornamental landscape plants in his backyard. The article is no longer online but he has a web page at with lots of interesting information. I also have several books by John Jeavons which tell you how to make about that much money with a backyard/mini-farm. You may want to check out the catalog/book section of If you want a copy of Backyard Homestead Mini-Farm and Garden Log Book I'll be happy to mail you my copy. My RE dream is to travel! <grin> Laurie
