Survival Gardening -- Ways to Fail and My Successes
In a long term disaster, water and food are going to be in short supply.
OMG where to begin.
In the photo to your left is my first attempt at a raised bed using
Front to back are Potatoes, then onion, next on right Tomato plants,
However, I think my biggest failure was not obtaining a growing guide
My other mistake was planting too many different items.
My next attempt with some items in the fall, will be based just on the guide for growing in my area.
I tore up all the old plants and have planted almost the entire bed with Sweet Corn
and a second attempt at Okra (just two plants)
As a side project I decided to try some fruit trees.
2 Apples trees (both doing fine) and two Mulberry Trees (doing great). Ordered these online at Ty Ty Nursery in Georgia.
As another side project, I laid down a bunch of hay, a neighbor had, in an area approx. 40ft by 40ft about 12" deep for now.
All the items I had taken out of the failed garden, I just threw on top of the hay
I had laid down.
My second experiment is the Moringa Tree Called "The Tree of Life"
Both my Moringa and Everglade Tomato plants seem to be doing fine so far but I don't have a great history. lol
The key point to make here is, start learning gardening now. Even if it's just container gardening.
One last important point to make. Only grow what you will actually eat.
I also don't get the point of growing some types of herbs.
Thanks to all of you for your support.
Just an added note. I recently purchased some Heirloam seeds on a strong recommendation.
