What to grow (and how and where to grow it)?
So I'm keen to grow some food this year and with other people organised as a commons.
In particular I'd like to grow a load of food that I will eat - things that will store well.
Also stuff that doesnt need a whole lot of looking after.
I've been thinking - beans, peas, or even lentils (all for drying), potatoes, possibly a grain or pseudo gain (something like buckwheat or quinoa)
I had a chat with @farmerfrank who suggested other root crops could also work well - turnips & swedes. Also possibly thick skinned squashes.
Ideally we'd grow one or more of these crops where someone could keep an eye on them.
How the costs, work and food distribution would work we'll have to decide. But I'm personally keen on exploring novel ways of organising this and have some ideas I'll share.
