Two things I don't hear much about... collecting rainwater/growing food. root vegetables like potatoes and esp sweet potatoes are crazy easy to grow, cheap, can be even grown indoors, and don't need replanting. Or planting high-yield fruiting trees and bushes instead of conventional ones. Or growing climbing food plants on a lattice on a wall. All are easy, simple, and pretty. Apple trees instead of oaks in your yard, for instance. basically zero maintenance, fruits for decades, apples stay on branch for a long time allowing for slow harvesting and store for months, plus they are super healthy, tasty, and hypoallergenic. Harvesting rainwater is stupid easy and safe. Any thoughts? Thanks for reading!
