Re: How much space do I need?

You're probably (most definitely) right, Weedo. It's learning by doing. I just need to start somewhere.

I'm sure I will be very annoying and ask you guys a lot of questions. Please be patient with me :lol:

Re: How much space do I need?

Thank you :) Considering that plants is literally all I eat, I will probably need 142 m2 all for myself :icon_smile: But I will start small and expand when I...

Re: How much space do I need?

I'm not sure if this helps or not ... probably not. It does help. It also made me feel slighlty discouraged for a moment :icon_smile: but at least I know now what I will have to be working towards But it's taken you a few years to get that far Odsox.

It might be easier to get a book that you can dip in for bits of information as you need it.
Yes, I definitely need a good book!

I will check the books by Jeavons and I'm also digging through the Book Review section atm and have already found some (way too many) books that sound interesting

Re: How much space do I need?

Right now I feel like I need a degree in horticulture... There is so much information and so many things to consider, I don´t really know where to start.

Re: How much space do I need?

Pumpkins will not go into my main beds either. They will either go on the compost or on an extra patch of soil mixed with horse manure.

I went for 4 patches: one each for high, medium and low nutrient demanding plants and one for green manure, so I can rotate. Each patch is 2x4 m, which looked like ...

Hello

Hi, I'm originally from Germany, but I live in the Czech Republic. Becoming self sufficient(ish ;)) has always been a dream of mine, and now it could become true. I just bought an old house with a reasonably sized garden (2000 m2) with lots of fruit and nut trees and a lot of potential. So this year...
