I am creating this thread to be an information resource for the segments I do on the Bushcraftonfire Radio show called "Gardening with Laura".

These segments are meant to be thought provoking, informative sets that give helpful tips for planning, planting, caring for and enjoying your home garden. They include means to naturally fertilize your garden, how to compost, how to winter your vegetables and much much more that has to do with living naturally and off the land.

Because I do alot of research for each of these segments, I review and read many websites and written articles to glean the most I can to present to our audience. I truly believe in giving credit to the people who provided the massive information I review, and I wanted to do so in one place so people who are truly interested in learning more can do so.

Enjoy.

Thanks for posting these links. I have never had the opportunity to listed to the radio show in the past but I will definitely try to do so in the future. There are valuable skills that many people overlook.

You are most welcome.

I agree that these skills are valuable. If you learn how to do these things, and actually try them, you will always have that skill if you shold ever need it, and it could come in very very handy if you every need to be totally self sufficient.

Thanks so much!


I can't wait (though I have to, until planting season here) to get a bit more self-sufficient food-wise.

Yams are natures own garden remedy for menopause. They have the highest amount of progesterone and women in S.America have known this for centuries, they never have to take hormone supplements. I grow both sweet potato and yam!

Great to see this thread.

Well, I can tell you right now, if you have a corner in your home where you have adequate light, and you are able to keep the soil moistened as needed, you can grow many things, even in the off season.

If you are a potato lover, you can grow potatoes in compost soil in a plastic garbage can that has holes in the bottom for drainage.

If you love fresh salad and herbs, you can literally grow them in a window box. Tomatoes and peppers also.

Where there is a will, there is a way. And you can jumpstart your growing season, by starting your seeds indoors 2-4 weeks early.

Antar, thank you for that information. I have read it before, but at the time, I didn't feel I needed it yet.

LOL time creeps up on us all.

I think it is time that more of us used the bounty of nature, and the knowledge of our past to regain our health and vigor!

I definitely will add yams and sweet potatoes to my garden.

Yep, but at least it gives me time to prep and build the raised beds, and get the rest of the fencing up for it (and get another gate).

I've definitely got the room, but trying out a fairly small area first (about 20' x 30'). For now, working on getting an orange tree planted, and some more pineapple in the ground.

With a pretty big "to do" list, I'll certainly prioritize based on best time to do things.
