So glad you posted, I have had this thread on my mind recently and even thought about u2uing you to ask where it is... hehe
I was taking pictures of the entire process from here in the midwest, during freezing temps, snow and ice, preparing for next years abundance.
I was thinking that your space is so beautiful and wanted to share, but my son used the camera for a school project and left it in his locker where it
I guess what I wanted to show our membersis that it does not always have to be so perfect and estetically appealing, the main thing is that you
utilize all available space when thinking ahead and preparing for hard times.
So many of us are on a shoe string and I know that even buying the basics can seem expensive in the beginning. The most important thing is to use
ingenuity and imagination. You can grow in a boot or a toilet for that matter, whatever you have.
One more thing I wanted to say is that the most important thing is to let some of what you grow go to seed, you can for instance clip with scissors
your lettuces, and the stem will continue to grow and eventually go to seed, those are the flowers that will eventually dry up and become the seed
I also liked what you said about using the hybridized seeds to simply eat or even give away, not to waste just because they will not produce year
after year. My concern about that is in the polination if they will contaminate our nonGMO seeds. I have a few apckets I will grow anyway... Nothing
wasted you know.
Anyway, sad to say you wont be getting a birds eye view of how to start an indoor production center. My whole dinning room is filled with babies right
now, so sweet.
