What do self-reliance, gardening, business, and Germany have in common? I lived in Germany for many months; I stayed 3 to six months in each city I lived in. It was common for my friend and I would to walk every where and use public transportation. Some of the smaller cities or villages I saw every building and knocked on every door.
I was fascinated by how most of them lived in apartments and traveled to the edge of the city to plant a garden. I was even invited to a garden once to talk with a friend while she worked. I soon found out that she actually rents the plot of land, and itâ€™s not because she needs the food because she was planting tulips and roses.
