The infographic below looks pretty intimidating — even for me and I live on a quarter acre urban lot.
Positives: My house roof is ideally situated for solar panels and I have removed much of the original lawn and replaced with productive gardening space.
Negatives: I haven’t installed the solar panels yet; my garden includes only two fruit trees, both peaches which are vulnerable to late spring freezes; I have been thinking about adding chickens but have yet to do so.
The Plan (in this order):
- plant two apple trees
- widen garden space in order to produce more vegetables
- research solar panels — cost is a factor!
- get serious about the chickens!
This will not make me completely self-sufficient, but it will get me closer to that point.
