Been gardening all kids of ways for a long time, my favorite is Aquaponics ,raising tilapia,and fresh water prawns and plants together very very fun
once its dialed in. As my name implies Tomatoes (heirloom)are my fav!!!Any farmer needs a small green house for Propagation/germination of seeds and
cuttings.To keep a constant stream of plants ,you have to have a good Propagation/germination regiment .
And when your talking high density green house at 30,000 plants per covered acre ,you got to have a good cycle and the wright plants .
I really love breeding plants ,LOVE eating what i grow .
There is no better feeling to me then to take a seed and nurture it to its maturity,watch it slowly quit taking nutrients up and slowly watch it
convert its energy to save its genetics by sending all its energy to its fruit.They are just so pure in their nature very efficient in energy
transfer,amazingly smart for being so simple.
They clean our air ,they keep us alive,they are when the NUT CUTTING time is upon us one day, the most important commodity to share with man kind.
Everyone needs to learn basic gardening for sure,One day it will probably save someones life some where in the world .
The more you grow for your self the more there is for people who cant .
Work your land let it work for you no matter what size plot.
If i could do one thing in my life before i die ,it would be to try to get big cities to put greenhouses on top of high rise buildings ,grociery
stores , ect . ect .
example: high rise the green house on top of these high rises could produce all the fresh fruit and vegies for the whole building ,and could be sold
from a small produce shop in the lobby.It could also Propagate the landscape plants.
It could be done aquaponics(is organic aeroponics think epcot center) ,organic, and hydroponics.
example :1 acre field grown tomatoes can produce around 20,000 to 40,000 pounds per acre,BUT !! any form of water culture can produce anywhere from
250,000 to 550,000 pounds per covered acre.
We shouldnt have to import one dam bit of fruit and vegies we are just to dam lazy these days.
