I have been looking at building a greenhouse and try my hand at gardening for a while. I am glad that this thread was resurrected.
The amount of information that is assumed by those “teaching” people to garden is just amazing to me. That is why I like when people like Tweva post up things like this. Since I am really not much past the “the seed goes in the ground, right?” stage, your document really helps to put things in perspective. I was not aware that it took so much land to grow enough food to feed a family of 4. Holy sheep shears…..
I definitely need to get my greenhouse built so that I can do some trial and error learning. Also need to learn how to can as well…. Makes me feel SO far behind.
