Edible Garden Festival this weekend. The event includes demonstrations of gardening, composting and cooking, and is intended for people who only have room for one container on their balcony, as well as folks who have an acre to plant. Plus, they've got food trucks.
We had a chance to stop by yesterday and take notes on soil (use lots of rich, organic material and perlite), the need to use raised beds, and good combinations to plant (tomatoes and peppers like to be neighbors).
As beautiful as the hens are, I doubt we'll raise them at tin box. They would drive the neighbor's dog crazy, and eggs don't really fit into a vegan diet. But we'll definitely take the papaya trees, which grow quickly and produce prodigious amounts of fruit.
