I wish to make of this thread more of a self-sufficiency quiz:

What amount of food do you buy - and what amount do you grow!


------------I buy all--------I buy most--------About 50/50--------I grow most--------I grow all
Rice
Flour
Pasta
Beans
Lentils
(leave blank if you do not eat a specific food)
Amaranth
Quinoa
Maize
Brassicas
Carrots
Potatoes
------------I buy all--------I buy most--------About 50/50--------I grow most--------I grow all
Pumpkins
Tomatoes
Nuts
Bananas
Berries
Other fruit
Peppercorn
Oregano
Milk
Butter
Yogurt
Eggs
Fish
Meat

Do you grow any perennial crop that you use pleny as food?


If you feel free, please state how much self-sufficiency you are regarding:

----------------Grid (approx %)--------Rainwater catchment %--------Spring water
Water
----------------Grid (approx %)--------Off-grid %
Energy
------------------------Percentage of imported plant fertility
Compost/Fertility



And what source of income do you have in your homestead/ community:
