Re: Growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs for food and medicine.

I don't have much to contribute here, but it's nice to see photos from growing season especially at this time of the year. I got plenty of snow outside and I'm so tired of the winter already. I wouldn't mind some positive artificial weather right here right now!

This is beautiful information thanks you so much @Ariya specially for the ph value as I am a novice so wouldn't have even thought of that.

You are welcome! :)
You need to ask for ericaceous or acidic compost (if you buy it.) Or make your own by adding wood chip to regular compost (and measuring the ph - more complicated.)

If I get them to grow I will make sure to share some pictures too. They sound very pretty minus the birds enjoying themselves in various ways around and on them but hey that is nature being nature so all good :) Thanks

You will get them to grow! I am imagining it now… And I expect photos to see how nice they turn out! ☆彡

Thank you again and for the recommendation of the ericaceous or acidic compost. That is cool I could make it out of wood chips and regular compost. I might go with buying for now but I like knowing that I could make it next time. Really great and you continue to amaze me with such great knowledge in so many different ways! I will most definitely share photos and plan to have more than my little micro balcony garden last year smile RIP my little leafy friend...

Most Taygetans live in the countryside without any other houses in sight, and grow their own food. Why would they live such an "unsophistocated" lifestyle?

A few years ago I was listening to Penny Kelly and she said plants tune into their caretakers and produce the nutrients they need. Thus the importance of growing your own food.

The book series called "The Ringing Cedars of Russia" says the same thing, that to get the nutrients you need, you must grow at least a small portion of your own food.  24 million copies have been sold.  https://www.ringingcedarsofrussia.org/M … /index.php

My wife grew up in the Philippines, and was born in a bamboo but on the mountainside. There the people on the mountain that grew their own food never suffer from obesity, dental cavities, or cancer, those are only ailments of the city dwellers there.

I have a book on my shelf called "Naked calories" where a couple traveled the world for six years, visiting indigenous people, and noting that their health was next to perfect, until they were introduced to the western diet of white sugar and white flour, and their health began to deteriorate rapidly. They said they never once saw an obese child that was eating their native diet.  That book has a excerpt from a study that showed apples in the US grown in 1990 had about 20 percent as many vitamins and minerals in them as apples grown in 1960. The entire population is malnourished.

Penny Kelly explains that fertilizer and pesticides kill the bacteria in the soil, the bacteria that poop out all the nutrients the plants need to make themselves full of nutrition. without those bacteria, there is very little nutrition in the food.

I grow a garden every year.

Very true. Cayce also discussed eating food locally grown to help one acclimate to their environment. From a frequency standpoint this makes perfect sense. He also discussed food combinations that were healthy and those that made difficult digestion issues.

Re: Growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs for food and medicine.

I have a case of these Carrots for Mari, or anyone else “up there” that prefers “Gaia Food”.

IMG-0005.jpg

They were harvested last October and are still very crisp and sweet.

I also have another row in the garden which I usually pull up in May.

If “an accountant” in interested in a pleasant drive through the mountains, they are welcome to “drop in” and pick them up.

And, there are plenty of places in this “neck of the woods” for SUZI to park.

Or... I’m thinking that if our friends “up there” can haul a grand piano out of here, a crate of carrots should not be too difficult.

Perhaps a 110cm drone could do the task?

I’ll have to leave them on the roof, or else Bambi WILL find them sad

And, if it ever becomes safe to do so “down here”, there is a ride on a Motorcycle waiting for Mari.

She can bring her own too smile

If anyone is interested, I’ll share the “BIG” carrot secret.

mes333 - I love your little garden and I’m looking forward to seeing your results this year too!

Antti - I hope the warmth of spring reaches you soon.

Tardisman - please reveal the secrets of your huge carrots. I would love to know!

Re: Growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs for food and medicine.

The "BIG" Carrot secret.


When I left the city in 2010 for a 1 acre property I had purchased in 1994, there was only jungle here, and a dilapidated trailer with no power or water.

What is now a garden, was a rock quarry with a thin layer of very sandy soil that would only support the indigenous “weeds”.

I began by cleaning up the lot by hauling about 500 wheel barrows of leaves & dead trees into the garden area and burning it off.

That put some carbon into the ground.

I picked down about a foot and pulled out the many tons of rock which was used to fill holes in other area’s of the lot.

I hauled whatever use able soil that was under the trees (at the other end of the lot) into the garden.

I mixed Peat Moss in with a shovel, water soluble 30 /0 / 0,  and planted Fall Rye.

That was as far i got during the first 2 years.

I picked up an old Ford Tiller at the scrap / recycling yard and “resurrected” it.

I then started grinding Birch leaves into the soil. It is impossible not to get some pine needles into the soil, but as long as they are brown it’s not a big problem.

I ended up with a very heavy soil which requires constant irrigation, otherwise it turns into “concrete” under the hot sun.

But root vegetables do very well in it!

Many souls have “chipped in” to the garden.

Mr Flint Morgan (a horse), Ostrich, Cow, Steer, Sheep, Chicken, Mushroom, everything compostable out of the kitchen (and the bathroom) which puts Nitrogen and micro nutrients into the soil.

I also use 20 / 20 / 20. It all helps...

I have never used Herbicides, Pesticides, Fungicides, Algicides or Glyphosate.

Despite all that, I had problems initially. Many plants would go to seed before they produced any fruit, and the strawberries lacked sweetness.

I began adding Plasma Water to the soil in 2016 which solved many problems. It brought up the level of sweetness, and increased the yield significantly.
The plants grew more robustly with deeper greens and vibrant colours.

The 4 main GANS used are:

Zinc oxide (Zn) GANS

Copper oxide (Cu) GANS

Carbon & Oxygen (CO2) GANS

Carbon & Hydrogen (CH3) GANS.


Here is an image of CO2 GANS production:


CO2.jpg


The GANS itself if not added to the soil. Only the Plasma water.

This is accomplished by filling a bottle 1/3 full with GANS, filling the remaining 2/3 of the bottle with distilled water, and mixing it well with a good shake.

Allow the GANS to settle in the bottle for a least 1 day. Longer works better.

The distilled water will take on the “charge” of the GANS. The water is then removed with a turkey baster and added to a hand watering bucket.

I use 3 turkey basters per bucket.


Application.jpg


You can buy GANS from the Keshe Store, but the price is “out of this world”...

The cost of the materials to make GANS is equivalent to the cost of fertilizer.

And, there are many other uses for GANS with regard to Agriculture, Health, Energy, Water Purification, Decontamination, etc.

It also prolongs the shelf life of produce.

The Carrots shown in the above image have been in storage for 6 months, and are still crisp and sweet.

They have been stored in an upright freezer that has been converted into a heated storage space, by powering the defroster element and fan with a standard base board heater thermostat.

The temperature is set to just above freezing during the winter months.

I also keep GANS in this freezer.

If anyone is interested, I will write up an introduction to  “How to make GANS” with “nauseating detail” smile

Very cool Tardisman. Bravo. Well done. I think the whole GANS subject is very interesting. Roots do store well.
By all means post information.

Thanks Horton HaW.

I'll start working on a "How to make GANS" document when I've got the "Hydrogen" document complete.

There is a lot to go in there!

A good place to start a crash course in Plasma Physics is to read the KF Plasma Times.

There are a few errors in the publications, and Mehran often does this to make us think.

And in so many ways, if you really know what you are doing, you will be able to spot those errors easily smile
