Pipi Bernstein shares: making an herb drying rack indoors. It’s inspiring me to prune my herbs like I ought to now that I have a drying Zone. I am using mint to undesolate the land here. It’s aggressive nature is bringing it back to life.
Lisa: Also, put your peppermint in big pots and put them at every doorway to keep ants out. You might put a few large peppermints in with the seedlings, it detours all kinds of bugs.

(a) “Ethan Asher” writes in:
Is home owner ship the only way to start preparing for what’s coming. I ask because a lot of the hydro/aqua ponics set ups I’ve seen don’t seem feasible in a 2 bedroom apartment.
“Max Smith” nails it!
Apartment living is perfect because now you will have to overcome many limitations of your living space to grow food. What you learn in the overcoming is going to be your best harvest. Get started–please.
Adding to that, on two fronts:
1. skills. become valuable to community. imagine food pouring forth from your hands with ease, under any number of conditions. become that person.
look into urban farming, urban homesteading, and urban prepping.
(b) Back to Paul D, where do I start with my new property?
I want to throw this out to the audience — what are your favorite sources for picking up new sustainable practices?
My 2c, consider: PDC. philosophies
Also: urban farmers, Growing your Greens, have lots of videos, good understanding of how to fit good growth in small space
Library: old books: encyc of country living, catalog of mother earth news. Lots to learn, these will give you giblets, hints at directions to try.
