In planning to get land outside of the main PPC area, I should be able to enjoy a little of paradise for quite some time. Going in to town will no doubt get increasingly hectic over the years, but that's the point.....live outside of town, grow most of my own food, try to be somewhat self-sufficient without being totally off the grid, etc. Wish me luck! thanks...

Good plan Pogi, I do that also to help curb the costs of retirement, I can only plant certain vegetables though because our soil is sandy and near the lake I grow a lot of Gabi (taro root) I didn't care for it at first but it's grown on me it's good in stews and also it can be made into fries and chips, hot peppers seem to grow in the back yard well.

I planted as many fruit trees as I could and finally half of them are starting to bear fruits, I have calamansi, tamarind (San Palo), papaya, guava, chokeberry (bignay), avocado, cocoa, manzanita berries, sugar apple (atis), santol (cotton fruit), starfruit, dragon fruit, Guyabano.
