We take a walking tour through our 3 year old permaculture home garden and see how much food can be grown in what was only .1 acres of lawn just a few years ago. Still a ton to learn, lots of gotchas and challenges, but pretty massive production in a short amount of time. We hope people get excited to do it for themselves!

I decided to plant a couple of Giant Swedes this year just for a laugh to see how big they would get. Unfortunately due to being flooded all "Summer" they decided to go to seed otherwise they might have grown on to be huge. Anyway as I've never grown Giant Veg for the sake of just growing a monster I'm pretty happy as they are quite amusing to look at just growing away in a spare bit of ground.
