Love it haha
Pretty sure we've had fire ants in MI since I was a kid
I'm going to try growing hops this summer with my comrade and roommate
Will keep a journal and keep y'all updated

You can get truckloads of wood chips for free
@John Mosby Mushrooms are not really my thing, but if I am in a survival situation, I would not turn them down unless they made me sick from eating them.
Even if u don't like to eat them (I personally love em), they are very profitable to sell, and they are great for composting.
@Dangerlurking you probably should turn them down, especially in a survival situation. Mushrooms are harder than other plants to correctly identify, so they're dangerous unless you study them/grow them yourself
I almost tried growing P. Cubensis in my closet to make some extra cash
I know the profit margins on THOSE were a bit extreme 😉 i dunno how it is with legal mushrooms
Growing some stuff there?
not yet, still too snowy
eventually though. They have a 5+ year shelf life
Hmm, this makes me wonder, why not construct a greenhouse?
I would be interested looking to it
I mean, it could make farming easier, and you could do it year round, rather than in the warmer half of the year.
Aquaponics greenhouses my dude, most efficient way to do it
Tl;dr on aquaponics, it's combining hydroponics with fish farming. The fish add nitrogen to the water, gets cycled back through the plants. Almost entirely self-sufficient. You can grow duckweed to feed the fish too. Boom, high efficiency gardening using raised beds to maximize sq footage
Can you really use that for 3 square meals a day?
Yeah they’re good for a lot actually
I almost started one with my ex
Just looked into buying a home
It'll be a while
