Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally, Episode-1986- Perennial Vegetables for your Homestead and originally aired on April,18th 2017.
The following are the original show notes from that episode
Today we are going to turn our focus on food production in our own back yards. The plants I will describe here are wonderful for growing in just about any environment. And even though they are perennials most will do find in containers and wicking beds, etc. Indeed a few are custom made for such applications though normally not grown that way.
Perennials are wonderful because they either come back on their own every year or they require very minimal effort to assure their return each year. Many are even considered weeds or a nuisance by the unknowing. Yep a plant that requires minimal work, self propagates and is good to eat we have come to see as a weed.
