A garden on a boat in the shadow of the Zombie apocolypse...

One thing I miss living on a smallish boat is not having a small garden and with the ever increasing cost and ever decreasing quality of produce the idea of adding a mini garden of some sort would be no bad thing. But hardly easy in a maximum garden space of four square feet...

"Sailing the Farm" addressed the whole idea of being able to grow your own food but at best "STF" was a seriously flawed book based more on best case scenarios and wishful thinking then actually putting food on the table.

In my current quest for an ongoing supply of cherry tomatos that actually taste like something, I have started following an interesting blog Homegrown Evolution by the authors of the most excellent "The Urban Homestead: Your Guide to Self-sufficient Living in the Heart of the City" which in turn has turned me on to Plants are the Strangest People

Is not the web a wonderful thing?

To come full circle, it's hardly surprising that both Homegrown Evolution and Plants are the Strangest People  are hip to the coming zombie apocolypse is it?
