Ken from “The Clever Survivalist” interviews me about small scale gardening.  We talk about some of my success and failures, not only at home, but out at my secondary location for gardening.  We also talk about some great resources to watch to learn how to utilize your space.  This is a great episode for apartment dwellers and those with limited land.
