Letter Re: Highly Productive Home Gardens


Take a look at the YouTube videos on the Dervaes family. These folks are a bit granola crunching and leftist/idealistic for me, but there is a great deal to be learned from their efforts. 6,000 pounds of produce from 5,000 square feet of yard is pretty impressive. Admittedly, they have a 365-day growing season and no deer to worry about, but we are adapting the strategies for our own situation. I do agree with them that producing your own food is a profoundly subversive act. If the link does not work work just go to YouTube and then search “Dervaes family”.

Also, I have lately been listening to the daily offerings from The Survival Podcast, which I burn to CD or load on my MP3 player to listen at my leisure.
