All I keep seeing is posts from June and September.
I live in an apartment building, I'm flat broke so I can't buy dirt for pots and the stuff under the grass around here seems terrible for keeping moisture. Any ideas for me so I can start a balcony of food next year?
My big dream/plan is to have my farm. Definitely permaculture and I guess it'd kinda look like a scaled down polyface farms model. I've been planning this for my entire adult life and even drew blueprints of the house we'll build. The details have changed as my knowledge has grown(who would have thought 2 miniature cows would be better than a full sized one? or that you can grow miniature banana trees indoors that produce full sized fruit?) but the over all idea remains constant:
A home with enough room to house those who need help temporarily, enough food that I'll never see the inside of a grocery store again(Salt & baking soda can be bought at a farming store), and the security of knowing that even if I don't sell much at the market this week my stomach will still be full.
Thank you for letting me share and for the wonderful info I've found here so far. I look forward to getting to know the regulars(assuming you still exist), and becoming a helpful part of the community.
Best Wishes, ~ Willow
P.S. Never mind, September was just a few days ago. ops: Blame the hour.">
