Expanding My Territory
I am finally making moves to getting more growing space. In my community, there are garden plots available for rental for as low as $20USD per year. I am not sure as to the specifics beyond that but, if this is still accurate, you are reading the words of someone who is going to seize this opportunity as soon as it flies past her. For that princely sum, I would get a 4 foot x 20 foot plot to grow stuff in and a key to the growing space.
As much as I love the Aerogarden for snacks/light meals, it is not sustainable for anything more than that in the long term. As it stands, I do not have the room in my room to make a hydroponics system that could feed everyone I would like to feed. So, with that door closed to me for the foreseeable future, my most feasible option is to get a soil based growing space and work from there. Heck, for the space advertised, I could feed a lot of people I would like to feed. I have already promised some of the future harvest to one friend and another has automatic rights to the harvest as well because he is such a good friend and has helped us tremendously. It is only a question of getting the plot and supplies at this point.
It is also just a matter of getting the supplies to the growing space once I get it. I am definitely going to grow tomatoes and peppers. While peppers might not need staking, the tomatoes I would like to grow certainly will. For that, I would need the supplies for a trellis system. I would have no problems getting the stuff. I will just need to figure out a way to get it to the site. I do not know anyone with a truck, so I would either have to walk it from where I live or hire someone. I really do not think they would let me on the bus with some of the supplies.
Seeds are no difficulty. In fact, they are probably going to be one of the easiest things to acquire/transport. I will start them indoors here and then carry them to the grow site once they are big enough to survive on their own.
I am giddy with anticipation!!!!! :) :) :)
