Where I live (Ohio, US) they grow like weeds even in bad soil. I can only imagine how they'd respond to rich fertile soil. Free leafy greens all summer? I just bought some from the store and was reminded of how delicious they are.
I've grown a lot of greens in Ohio. If you can cultivate them to get them in the spring in decent numbers, they'll be best. Perhaps if you can get start some seeds indoors, you could grow them in cooler weather, then put the whole crop in a trash... (more)

Has anyone looked at the kinds of plants recommended for permaculture (see PFAF etc) to see how they intersect Paleo in terms of antinutrients? My personal approach is more the "can I grow it/catch it?" and no counting of calories, macronutrients... (more)

We'd bought a home back in '08 that had nothing but a pathetic attempt at a lawn. In the years since I had ripped out the failing lawn and put in perennials and shrubs and ground covers. All was well and beautiful. I started Paleo during the... (more)
Consider your working within the confines of about an acre. I grew up were we had one acre of manicured lawn and a few acres of woodland. We made trails, hung out, and generally just spent a lot of time in the woods. I've always found our... (more)
I'm in grad school, in a tiny studio apartment. If it is allowed, I'd love to grow a plant -- better air quality, it's something green. Any tips on what kind of plant (including herbs I might cook with), or the best place to get one in NYC? Thanks! (more)
So what are your best hacks for Paleo Gardening? How do you keep critters and pests out of your future bounty? I live in the Stockton area of the central valley in California.
I'm a crap gardener, but as far as keeping critters out... just get some chicken wire and a few posts to put around the garden. Should be a one morning job at most.
My husband and I are going to have a garden this next season, so I have been working on getting the earth prepared. My next quest is to find a good composter. I have read so many reviews and talked to a few people that have had them, and no one... (more)
