But I've been watching vids on growing produce in bags and that may be the way to go.


Would like to try potatoes on the balcony.
Suspect it to be a bit too hot, though, facing south 13.gif
I just might make a trial run this spring/summer.

Wonder if ordinary plastic bags would prove just as
efficient as those fancy, expensive ones in the vid...

One bloke said the black bags do get too hot, but some lighter color may be alright.

It's true, my mind does not often go to the dark side and people would laugh at me for not getting dirty jokes.

That is a great idea Shadow, but they need to devise ways of protection, especially from outside animals that may try to kill the chickens - I won't even go to the scenario where TSHTB and people are on the prowl for resources.

Looks like they have a tall sturdy fence around the yard but that won't stop desperate people, no. But it's a great idea of utilizing a useless swimming pool.

For sure, but I was watching Mountain men on TV, and one of the guys was called to assist with trapping some animals killing chickens in the chicken house. It was a badger who was so desperate that it dug under the structure and successfully killed three chickens. When the MM entered the coop the remaining chickens would not leave the safety of their lofty perches. He set a trap, and caught/killed the badger, but noticed that before the badger entered into the trap it also killed a skunk. Self-sufficiency is a tough call.
