Re: GLP Recession Proof - Summer 2014 Planting Season
Any tips on good vegetables to grow for someone who lives in a Multi-Family housing situation?

Got more deck and patio space than I know what to do with but zero yard that I can plant it.

i seen whatcha call a hillbilly balcony garden. was fucking cool.

they took a clothes line wood thing

and they hung planters from it - used gutters they attached to the rods

you can bucket garden.

get a metal rack - like a store rack
[link to www.lulusoso.com]

use that

tomato plants i saw ppl in trailer parks hanging them from their awnings theyre growing upside down

google bucket gardening

You can also buy a "phytopod" to grow ALOT of veggies in and it takes up very little space.
I also use old tires to grow my potatoes in. Will have about 200 lbs of potatoes this year along with corn, heirloom peas and beans, watermelon, cantaloupe, beets, carrots, zucchini, cucumber, Spinach, Brussel sprouts and allmy herbs..I also have several fruit trees growing along with moringa trees.
Doesn’t everyone have at least one good Tactical Pump Action for home defense?!! 1/16 because size matters ; )~

im growing arkansas traveler tomatoes this year.i grew lots of specialty tomatoes last year and they crossbread.this year i decided i wanted the hardiest heirloom i coul find.then we got the best growing season in eight years.
also growing bantam corn.package says seven foot tall.mine are nine and tassling right now.tobacco has leves twice the size of a football both directions.

may the rains be regular and plentiful.may the sun shine only when needed.

supposedly turkeys and chickens should not be on same land.disease or something.

i like to make about half my tomatoes into fermented salsa. (the rest i freeze after cooking down a bit). fermented salsa is raw when you eat it and needs no heat canning--but you do need to refrigerate. if you do it properly it will last until the next tomato season. it supplies beneficial bacteria just as yogurt would.

i like to keep lots of different chickens but leghorns really do produce better in winter so have some of those along with the others.

potatoes, it has been said, creates the most calories per square foot of any veg, of course, you need to think about winter storage

i dry my herbs on screens and strings i don't own a dehydrator

grow flint corn and dry it for corn bread all year

fridge pickles are better than heat processed.

learn how to make kraut or kim chi

find a orchardist (or become one) and buy raw cider and let it bubble into apple champagne right in your fridge

i'm slowly doing something similar, but pigs and chickens
are at the end of my list. they bring a lot of flies
with them. you will probably have a lot of flies around
and in your house. i have plenty of neighbors with chickens
and can trade some things for eggs if i have to.
