What planting/gardening methods are you utilizing currently?

We currently have a small container garden where we live and have tomatoes, cayenne peppers, rosemary, basil, strawberries, and some bell peppers.

Which self-sufficiency topic interests you the most?

No answer yet

Can you offer related topic knowledge to contribute to group learning efforts?

We currently grow in pots... but are moving to our little farm in the next month or two and will be planting in both pots and raised beds mostly.

What's your experience level in gardening &/or preparedness?


What motivated you do join the group?

I'm always looking for info on edible plants to grow and what grows well here in north central florida. Tips on organic gardening and soil amendments are always appreciated!


I'm Vanessa, a wife & mother of 2. My husband and I recently purchased our little dream homestead in Alachua/La Crosse area with 5 acres. We are beyond excited to start growing our own edible plants and herbs and having some small livestock!
