Get some chickens (for the eggs.) How do I do that when I have two cats who like to catch birds? Will they bother the chickens? As long as I don’t have a rooster can I get away with it in the city? Do I want a chicken tractor, or a deep bedding system? Will the chickens stay in my yard?
Learn to make compost. My dad made great compost. I am terrible at it. I pile up big piles that don’t seem to decompose. I am determined to learn how to do this, and I also hope my husband will help me ; )
Get a vacuum sealer (because I don’t like canning and I have a freezer.)
Get a steam canner. I may can anyway and this would be easier than a water bath canner.
The last two things would have to be justified, because Garry already thinks gardening is expensive.
More rain barrels.
Figure out how to use my front yard for vegetables and stuff without offending the neighborhood. One way may be to garden the way my grandmother did where flowers and vegetables were mixed together.
