First let me say I have 0 batteries in any piece of survival equipment save 1.The first post about growing techniques is very useful. The other moaning and cursing those responsible not so much. The crisis is upon us and will likely get much worse. Time to do what is needed for you and yours to live. The politicians will not be helpful.
I just cut a bunch of bananas down. They have been hanging there since early summer and just did not want to get ripe. Likely not getting enough sunlight and just cut down an offending oak. I still have persimmons on the trees and my satsuma oranges are getting ripe. I am in zone 8b northwest florida. Winter gardens are possible here for mainly vitamins. For calories plant root crops like sweet potato, yams, peanuts and other starch crops for calories.
I don't trust batteries to work when your life is at stake. Same with your hose power it is temporary at best.
I'm in zone 6 Western NC Mountains, & just had the best Fruit & vegetable grow.I am in zone 8b northwest florida. Winter gardens are possible
We have on Nov 28 Carrots, Cabbage, Napa. Bok Choy, Napa, Radish, all in our Winter garden.
Never stop growing, it's colder than last winter so far, however our raised covers protect our plants from burning frosts
& helps keep the heat from the sun in the soil. We have been growing fruit & vegetables for the past 51 years & have learned so much.
I have intentionally bought/traded or found LOL only open pollinated seeds & saved them from year to year, they are mine after all.
Do you grow Papayas? Want to trade? Things. Do you know what a guinep is? https://jamaicanfoodsandrecipes.com/jamaican-guinep-fruit/
Grew up on this fruit in Panama, & everything tropical.
