berries“Those off-the-gridders living in the south, where freezing temperatures are rare, have the opportunity to grow a wide array of berries that we northerners can only dream of.

What makes a berry the best choice for a southern garden? Well, that’s subjective, of course. However, for those homesteaders that are off-the-grid and preparing for an unknown future, the best choices in my opinion share two characteristics.
