great video with Jim Kovaleski (the scythe master i posted in the yard work thread). Also, this vid is in FL (he has a winter home here). Nice little lot there, tons of veggies.

this is pretty cool stuff.. been kinda leaning towards getting into some of this for a while now (growing my own veggies/herbs/etc). I have lots of space right now for some "urban farming". could be fun.

fleet farming .. something that goes on in FL !

you can donate your yard to be farmed out (also paying a small fee for their initial supplies). they'll come in, transform your yard. then maintain it. really cool.

cool vid on starting w/ seedlings (seeds).

she puts cinnamon on it to keeps gnats away heh. cool.

then use styrofoam cups. i need to do some simple vertical setup w/ cups (plastic or styrofoam etc). try to fig out how to do this as cheap as possible, but also produce alot of food.
