hope to join in on some good debates & discussions.

I am not a prepper but have spent years learning to live off the land, I am in a position now where I have the ability to be completely self sufficient & hope to share some good info as well as learn from others.

Hey dude.

I am thinking about growing some stuff for fun. I bought a heap of cultivar seeds of weird stuff that looked cool. I was thinking it would be better than buying veggies at the shops for many reasons too.

I will be planting as soon as the frosts go away.

edit- look forward to your info hey.

Just googled when to plant seeds according to the moon.

Plants with seeds on the outside between New Moon and Quarter Moon.

Plants with seeds on the inside between the quarter moon and the full moon.

Plant root crops in a waning moon.

Never plant on day of new moon or full moon.

Welcome to the forums. Others think you speak of being a gardener but I hear you saying your "Stalking The Wild Asparagus" ? You'll find both types here.

nice, we rebuilt the greenhouse last winter. Used pvc clear & happy with it, still need to make seed start bed & have an idea on making one with plug-in pipe defrosters & thermostat/probe in sand. We are also thinking of using a rocket stove as a mass heater for early early winter starts.

how big is your polytube? is it heated?

yeah, lol,
but really, we have a couple gardens at the farm. Recently (spring) we planted a berry garden with 200 strawberries and mix of raspberries blueberries and countless other berry bush types. Lots of fun but allot of work to keep weeded.
