  1. You sure can. During the weeks ahead I am going to upload as much as I can about what I have had personal experience with. I invite everyone to see the homesteading project I have documented on FB. My first questions to you would be where did you acquire your original seeds stock? How was it stored & how old was it before you planted. Next would be what type of soil conditions do you have? These are all cool weather, maybe you are planting them at the wrong time for your area?

  2. . Well it can get pretty cold here. I can’t plant much in ground because I am renting. These two like cooler temps. So I am trying to see what they will do given a little protection. The are growing but the same varieties in ground are just holding on. I need to get a thermometer to see what is really happening in there. I put some rock on the bottom of the aquarium then soil. It is covered with a thick plastic sheet. Nothing to it really. Thanks for coming by & commenting

  3. You are so welcome. The one thing I am trying to do is push the limits. I want to see what we can get away with, how well they will do with minimal resources, such as light & even water at times. I like to try to grow things out of season as well.
