SPIN-Farming is a non-technical, easy-to-learn and inexpensive-to-implement vegetable farming system that makes it possible to earn significant income from land bases under an acre in size. Whether you are new to farming, or want to farm in a new way, SPIN can work for you because:

* Its precise revenue targeting formulas and organic-based techniques make it possible to gross $50,000+ from a half- acre.
* You don't need to own land. You can affordably rent or barter a small piece of land adequate in size for SPIN-Farming production.
* It works in either the city, country or small town.
* It fits into any lifestyle or life cycle.

SPIN is being practiced by first generation farmers because it removes the two big barriers to entry - land and capital - as well as by established farmers who want to diversify or downsize, as well as by part-time hobby farmers.

This is an eyeopener! I live in an area with a "Home Owners Association". I think I better reread my Homeowner rules before I plant!

Homeowner being fined $5000 for growing too many vegetables on his property.

Harvesting rainwater is illegal in some states and cities. Another thing to check out before you hook-up your rain barrels.

This was so easy that I almost didn't try it. Using a blender (because it is easy) you can make this in minutes. Take a double handful or so of nasturtium leaves, a handful of nuts of your choice (I had pecan so I used those), some Parmesan cheese, garlic cloves to make you happy, a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes (I wanted mine spicy) and some olive oil to make it all come together to the consistency you like. On a piece of toasted bread it was wonderful. I had black bean soup and garnished with sour cream and the pesto. Yum

Margaret, Please share your recipe! I've never herd of nasturtium pesto.

Didn't make salsa... fried green tomatoes were a hit though.
Biggest hit with me is the nasturtium pesto that I made. Oh the goodness of it!
