We bought a house. Our back yard is smaller than our current garden, but the sun is far more agreeable. Due to the size of our yard, and subsequent gardening space (we intend to cover every inch), Meg and I are planning a little experiment. Actually the experiment isn't exactly little, nor is it really unique.
Our goal will be to go without supermarket produce for one year. Like I said, it's not unique; there are many people out there who live and eat this way, but we want to really focus on how those with little to no yard can buy their produce locally and seasonally all year round. In order to make this happen and not starve on in the winter months, this will involve a lot of canning, freezing, and dry storage.
