Here at Econopocalypse Ranch, we’re going through seed catalogs and having a blast while making our new year’s gardening resolutions.
I’m going to try growing Floriani red flint corn, sorghum, a new variety of cassava, Kebarika beans, and half a dozen other new things. Hopefully this will also be the year my tomatoes work out. Last spring we bought a bunch of heirloom seeds and then had our crop completely destroyed by Aminopyralid-contaminated manure. (I’m gonna keep beating this drum – there’s no excuse for anyone to be spraying these long-term poisons onto the earth!)
This fall I also planted a bed of sugar cane that I hope comes up nicely in the spring. As I reported yesterday, we’ve also dug multiple new garden beds and started on an aquaponics system that should start producing this year.
But enough about me! What are your garden plans and resolutions for this new year?
