I also live in a townhome/apartment in the middle of the city (not for long!) and don't have much room to...

  4. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I am building a small green house. I thought I would just share my progress as I get it together and useable. I had hoped this vinyl I found at Wal-Mart would work for the covering, but decided against it. I now plan to use a heavy grade construction grade plastic for now. We will see how it...

    You´ve probably all been there before, but in case you didn´t - or you feel like engaging in a discussion on what to do/not to do - when SHTF really happens for you. Why? Not being entirely young anymore, I pretty much know how people behave if they don´t get their way, or get stressed out by...

    I'm wondering if anyone here has had success with aquaponics in the northern US or Canada? What is the best fish to stock, and do you need some way to keep your greenhouse heated (other than natural sunlight)?

    We decided to build a greenhouse and grow some of our own food. This was what we accomplished our first year. We learned from our mistakes and this year is even better.

    These are photos of the 10X12 Harbor Freight Greenhouse that we built in 2011. We mainly built it to use as a "screen room" to protect our tomato plants from the birds. We have since expanded our garden to several raised beds. We now grow tomatoes, squash, lettuce, cucumbers, green beans...

    Has anyone any experience, advice or thoughts on the following?: Can I take glass, say from old broken window panes, used glass jars and bottles, and melt these down in order to create glass blocks / glass bricks, with which to fashion some sort of greenhouse from? - And if so how do I achieve...

    Living in the northern climate zone we have a limited growing season, so I am wondering if we shouldn't be looking into extending the season by growing hydroponically or aeroponically in a greenhouse, supposedly you get greater yields because your plant denisty can be increased dramatically...

    Survival requires food. Producing your own food in a concentrated manner may be something some of you might be interested in pursuing. I call the concept a backyard food production complex...a term I coined a couple of years ago on Treehugger and at Prius Chat. Backyard food production is...
