This was pretty amazing. If those of us that have the luxury of having an acre or so of land could build a decent hobby farm, we could really be self-sustainable.
However, this all depends on what your family likes to eat. Ours doesn’t eat a lot of wheat, so we would buy flour. My mom would be driven insane by chickens, but my dog would love them.
Our neighbours have a rather small garden that consists of cucumbers, green beans, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, carrots, and other yummy veggies. It is only about 4-6 square metres. Not big, but we get so much tomatoes and other goodies that we can them. That’s only us! They share with other neighbours too! So having your own is definitely doable!
We also have a herb garden that tastes so yummy in recipes!
For those who don’t have space, maybe a single tomato plant, and a small herb garden would work?
