This is one of the reasons I love this forum! All these funny, creative ideas people get. Guerrilla gardening! The name itself gives me a grin.
I´ve never heard about it until now, but I love the idea. I hope you are successful and wish you all the best of luck!

We never thought to ask, but what would you plant where you are living now ? Do things like our little wild strawberries and ransoms thrive there too ?

To add my two pennth ,I went through a prepping phase and wanted the garden to be edible but not look like edible apart from the herbs etc, I bought a lot of those James wong seeds,(but had poor germination). And what I found is a lot of stuff got hammered by slugs and snails and some didn't like the dry summer we had,so what got eaten a lot and what didn't thrive without minimal additional watering I pulled or didn't replant. Unfortunately the Wifes male continental x rabbit and its French lop female friend escaped their pen and totally decimated the garden including the lawn ,so I gave up.
But what about alpine strawberries or the native ones there really small so hard to spot.

Oh yes, I think most kinds of strawberries will thrive here :) During summer this place is like an oven, and the strawberries we had this year are without doubt the best ones I have ever tasted, in my life! We are definitely expanding our strawberry production next year.
This winter I am chopping down an area of trees (about 30x20 meters), to make room for a medium grow house, and a vegetable garden. I have a plan for it all, and I hope to grow a lot of herbs, spices, vegetables, berries, fruits and what not. I just need to finish mapping out the area and put order to it all.
And I really need to restrain myself, expanding gradually, so that I won´t end up like The Mad Hatter out in the fields...
My horses and chickens provide me with a steady supply of pooh, so I hope my vegetables will look like Arnold Schwartzenegger :naughty:

Well Fang you, Fang you very much...i cant take the credit though...it's been around for very long time now. Get involved...if you see a planter in someones garden that's looking a bit worse for wear....get in and sneak a few seeds in the thing under the cover of darkness. Beware of the Dog though..;)

Those look like ickle jewels of intense flavour happiness Toddy.
Despite being born in Scotlands soft fruit basket I wouldn't thank you for a normal strawberries. Smell nice but always a let down of the highest order taste wise. When wee wild ones though... Heaven, bit of fresh ground pepper on them and it's pure ambrosia. Also make the best strawberry & chilli vodka.
Sadly they're pretty thin on the ground 'round here, still heaps of wild rasps to stuff in my cakehole.:p
