I love these
@Ganado that chart in the opening post is amazing. I had to look up New Zealand spinach.
Spinach, New Zealand | Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
New Zealand Spinach Nutrition
There were two garages like that in my grandparent's neighborhood.
Its amazing how our .gov used to promote and encourage your families self sustainment without any .gov reliance . And now the .gov frowns on anyone that doesn't want or need them , and wants to fine or shut them down for not being dependent on them , like being hooked to their grid. It just shows , if your reliant on them , then they can control you .
the layout of the 1st post had a very good crop rotation
the second year you just move everything over 2 rows and it's almost a perfect rotation.
I would intersperce marigolds and garlic in between for bug control .... the USDA sill does alot of self sufficiency training and provides alot of free products and training if you know where to look
They still do encourage people to be prepared and have supplies etc...
National Preparedness Month | Ready.gov There is so much info linked on that page. There is even National Preparedness Month. They want you to take care of yourselves in the event there is an emergency. CERT and Citizens Corp is always looking for people. They teach skills for free!!
This is good news. I'm just going by the stories I hear of the .gov shutting people down on their own land because their not hooked into the grid and living off of their own land. I'll check out that site. Thanks.
