Well not really the beginning, I’ve felt like this for many years as has my husband, but again this year we tried to grow our own vegetables. On a much larger scale, using some permaculture methods and nothing but what nature provides. Unfortunately, this failed! We got a ramekin of peas, our beans died, the carrots and onions lasted a day, the apples fell off the tree, as did the cherries, but we have 3 tomatoes! So…I deduce, we live in an area that is very green, we are next to some woods and we let our garden overgrow a bit to encourage bees and butterflies. The result appears to be oodles of bugs! So, our plan is to set up an aquaponics system, off the ground, in a poly tunnel and use up planting with bottles next year, we will grow on the patio rather than in the grass, it seems a waste of land but we can plant lots of wild flowers to make up for it and that will help with pollination. I will post the plans at a later date and will shortly post regarding home made products. Also some information on how we impact the planet in our daily living.
