We need to think carefully what to grow in our eco-village in order to obtain maximum of healthy nutriens spending minimum time and effort. This is what was traditionally planted in autumn in some temperate and subtropical regions.
This is what crop plants Nan K. Chase recomends, presumable for North America: Parsley, Coriander, Radishes, Greens (Spinach, chard, kale and lettuce), Horseradish, Rhubarb, Strawberries, Chives, Onions, Leeks and Garlic.
Please keep in mind that we all differ in what food is better for us. Some have allergies, others can’t stand too much acidity, etc. Some edible vegetables could become toxic if used too much, for example rhubarb contains a bit of poisonous oxalic acid.
