I have taken steps to start up a small vegetable and fruit garden in my tiny backyard that is no bigger than an apartment balcony. I have already had much of the materials that I needed, but I still ended up spending an additional $100 on supplies. One of the reasons why I spend so much is that I decided to try the new topsy turvy. The topsy turvys will help me use the avalable space that I have so that I can grow a lot more.
I will be growing tomatoes, many different types of herbs and strawberries in the topsy turvy. At least at first, because I can grow other things in them as well. As for what I will be growing in the pots that I have on the ground, I will be growing, yellow onions, green peppers, jalapeños, okra, artichokes, long stemmed onions, Cabbage, lettuce And soon, watermelon, cucumbers.
I will have everything that I need for the ingredients required for my hot sauce. Except for one ingredient, which is my secret ingredient. So do not ask. However with everything that I will be growing. This means that I will be spending less time and money shopping and in the long run. I will be making up the money I spent.
I have learned that growing my own garden is a really rewarding experience for me. And it makes me less dependent on other people to put food in my belly. Granted, I cannot be self-sufficient with such a small garden, but being less dependent on others is still an improvement. And the idea becoming an urban survivalists is very much appealing to me seeing that I enjoy the art of wilderness survival (Yes it is an art, and I do not care what anybody says).
Anyways I will be posting updates on my garden, and seeing that I brought up the topic that I am into wilderness survival I may also be doing post on wilderness survival and even urban survival now that I am getting into it.
