If you think you need a ton of land to grow some food of your own, you are mistaken. In chapter 4 of Backyard Farming on an Acre (More or Less) I talk a lot about how to maximize your garden space and grow more even in a small area. These are a two great resources for small-scale self-sufficiency no matter the size of your backyard!
The prizes include four fabulous items, perfect for small spaces:
Peaceful Valley/Grow Organic Gourmet Flavors Collectible Seed Tin – $24.99 – Ten ready-to-plant organic seed packs from Peaceful Valley give you a choice of delicious, heirloom herbs you can plant into your containers or raised bed planters. Fresh herbs are so pricey from the grocery store – save money and enhance flavor by growing your own.
Earth Box Junior Garden System – $24.95 – An Earth Box Garden System is a fabulous self-contained gardening container that is self-watering. Our Earth Box veggies always tolerate the summer heat better than any of our other containers. The Earth Box Junior is smaller sized and better suited for a window-sill or apartment balcony.
Mushroom Garden Kit - $19.95 – Fabulous mushroom garden kit comes ready-to-grow and will take recycled coffee grounds. The small size and self-contained system makes it easy to grow indoors! Using recycled coffee grounds, and housed in a biodegradable box, the entire system is self-contained, sustainably produced, and ready to use as soon as you get it!
