  1. I plant a garden every Spring and Fall. I move about and have found the soil contents vary from region to region. I live in South Florida and the soil is very challenging. It’s mostly sand and clay. I mix topsoil and manure together and have had some successes. I grew pineapples last Spring. Anyone out there got any tips to share? The climate is tropical and the rainy season begins in late May through September. Thank you!

  2. Hi Snowbird!

    You might want to join hyperlocavore.com our community site and start a group for your bioregion. People can carry on a more detailed discussion there!
    Thank you!

  3. I live in Tucson where grass is a waste of precious resoures. We think it was a big rainstorm if we get a quarter of an inch, so we can’t rely on rainfall for green yards, so in Tucson we tend to use our water for better things, and what better than a food garden? But not all typical food plants do well here, and some just frankly use too much water.

  4. Somewhere in the Hyperlocavore Inspiration Videos (front page of hyperlocavore.com) There is a video called “Greening the Desert” – also on youtube. It’s pretty amazing what you can do with permaculture techniques.

    I lived in Albuquerque for a while. I imagine the cold steely stares of disapproval one would receive for planting something as silly as a lawn in the desert. Sadly some will get it when there is no water left…
