Hello, I am reaching out to all my local Sacrameanto and Sacramento area permies. I would like to meet up, exchange seeds and ideas. I am also looking for partners to start a farm in our urban setting. So please drop by, tell us a little bit about yourself like what area you are from, your permie goals, and anything else interesting or useful about yourself. Perhaps together the permies community can get some things accomplIshed.
I'm Woodland, and more about learning and absorbing than able to do much. Right now other than doing a bit in the backyard I'm just dreaming.

That's perfectly fine Teresa. Glad to see your response. My thinking is that as a group Sac area permies can educate each other and exchange seeds and genetics. There may also be opportunities for land access and making some supplementing your income via direct farm work or even small value added businesses like soap making, preserves etc. Urban ag land is plentiful and cheap. Feel free to post some pics of what you are doing in the garden. Thanks!

I'm serious when I say mostly dreaming. LOL I do experiment here and there but on an extremely small sporadic scale. Due to interference the garden area I'm allotted was filled with leaves about 18 inches high.
I do have a broccoli plant I haven't pulled that's a couple years old. It seeded and with the rain sprouts are coming up. The leaves were dumped on them as well but I managed to dig it out. I hate to admit to using snail bait to kill the slugs and snails that would happily eat them into oblivion. I may be able to transplant them when they're a bit bigger and use toilet paper centers to protect them. Hopefully. The parent plant still gives bits of broccoli.
My wannabe gardens haven't fared that well for one reason or another but mostly, I believe, cause I was too drought conscious so didn't water enough. I tried bag gardening this year but still didn't water enough plus need to experiment more to make it more successful.
I have no idea what killed my chives. Two sets. That was disappointing.
