We have recently moved to a home in SW Portland on 1.16 ac. and plan to dedicate a portion of the lot for farm use, growing vegetables, salad greens, herbs and berries. This includes approximately 1/4 acre for row crops with the remaining 1/4 ac. for a shed structure, washing station and perimeter plantings. The site is open and grassy, no chemicals used, has full sun on 80% of row crop area and has a 13% slope to the east. The area includes 3 established apple trees. Soil has been tested and results are available.
