  1. Great GREAT show today– I love to hear people extol the virtues of making your land work for you, rather than plant ornamentals all over the place. It takes so little effort to reap so large a harvest…

    I read in a great book on Dumpster Diving (Book was hilarious, subversive and right-on-target!) about Guerilla gardening– tossing seeds in empty yards, back areas of the woods, etc. and checking on them later. Not a bad idea…

  2. excellent show. But man cantt live by veggies alone. What about combination with chicken raising, livestock,. and hunting..

    localized guerilla gardening and squatting vacant land for gardens is wonderful.
