Your backyard can save your life. Land is land and you don’t need much of it to grow food. I can tell you that if I plant anything in my yard, it will be something that will produce some form of edible nutrients.
Being very practical, I am not one to have a yard full of pretty flowers and plants that in some way cannot be used to eat, as herbs, and/or sell.
This video was a news segment back in 2008 and is a fantastic example that living off your land can be done regardless of how large your land is. The family in this video only has 1/5 of an acre and they live in the burbs.
