Get yourself some non-GMO seeds.
I am stressing the non-GMO seeds because lets face it, if you are in control of your domain you need to know everything that is going into your food supply. If you buy GMO seeds, you don’t really know what you are getting, or what has been changed. All of that hippie tree-hugging mentality aside, you need to know what kind of seeds you are getting so you will be able to grow your future feast the right way. If you buy a GMO seed, who knows? Maybe your kids will be born with an extra set of eyeballs. Probably not, but just get the real thing. If it is good enough for your grandparents, it is good enough for you.
You need a compost bin.
Why do you need a compost bin? Don’t ask questions. Listen to Denim Dan here talk about the benefits of compost.
Basically compost is discarded scraps from the kitchen (no meat, bones, or fat), newspaper clippings, coffee grounds, dead leaves, etc… This all breaks down after 8-12 weeks into something that farmers call “black gold”. Soil that is so full of nutrients that your plants will grow so fast that it would be comparable to someone drinking GOMAD, taking steroids, and squatting everyday. If you want to control the very earth that you walk on, get composting!
Find a sunny, secluded area.
This is especially important thing you need to remember if you live city filled with snot-nosed brats and cats that think they are entitled to your food supply. Luckily the building adjacent to mine has been vacant for quite some time. All I have to do is climb the fence and I am invisible to those on the ground. Be resourceful if you are an urban dweller. I included some pictures below:
