We should get in touch with each other. I am in SC as well and do aquaponics (Barrel-Ponics), rabbits, free range layers and just getting into the mushroom thang.

well i am still alive....half way thru planting of fall/winter garden now. the market season is over, we had a great time growing, selling, and bonding with local eaters ;-]
i managed to grow 5738 kg of tomatoes this season, and a mountain of yellow summer squash.
the deer season is here, and should be quite brisk.

i planted a commercial sized collard field ~ 1200 head, and ~ 1000 broccoli with 400 head of cabbage...add in the beet root, turnip greens ,mustard,chard,lettuce, and we have quite a winter garden.
i am entering into year around growing now with the extra greenhouse space.

Can see why those baskets walked out the door...look cool.
Really like ur setup... something like I am trying to work towards.
Do you use a seeder to sow the seeds? Like a Jang seeder?
I lived a few years in USA and really liked the idea of hunting for my winter meat supply !!
Please keep us up to date @ the wormstead
