We live in a world where natural plants given by mother earth are demonized and labeled dangerous and illegal because they cannot be patented while deadly chemicals produced in labs are treated as mainstream and safe in order to fill the pockets of a few.

How to Use Vinegar as a Weed Killer

There are 4 key instructions to make this work:

  1. Use a Pump Sprayer – Using a sprayer is critical for this task.  It can be any type of pump sprayer (don’t use a sprayer that connects to your garden hose).  What’s important is that you apply a fine mist to thoroughly coat the leaves with vinegar.  Spray to runoff.
  2. Spray During Peak Sunlight – You’ll have more success if you can apply the vinegar in direct sunlight.
  3. Do a Few Applications – You’ll have more success if you do 2 or 3 repeat applications.  The bed in the picture above was sprayed twice, on back-to-back days.
  4. Spray After Weeds have Emerged – If you jump the gun and spray before all of the annual weeds have emerged, you’ll need to do another round later after new weeds emerge.  If you time it just right, and you have some luck, you can get away with one application per season.

This Gardener Regularly Grows 100-Pound Vegetables

Growing up in a family of 13, Phillip Vowles learned to appreciate the effort it took to feed all his brothers and sisters. So when he started harvesting his own crop, he decided to supersize his venture. As Phillip says, “big vegetables feed big families.” Today, his giant veggies top-out at over 100 pounds and can feed more than just a few families.

Food Security: Could You Grow Your Own?
How long does it take to grow your own food?  Give that a little thought.  If you’re starting from scratch, it will probably take you years before you can reliably produce your own food.  Even if you’re an accomplished gardener, it still takes several weeks, or months, to produce a harvest. 

But the government in Venezuela just recommended that their citizens should start growing their own food right away to deal with the food crisis in that country.  The biggest problem with their plan is this: While it takes years to learn how to grow your own food, it only takes 40 days to starve.  Read the whole story at this link:

SELF-RELIANCE CATALOG: Compost Water Heaters
 
Compost Water Heaters
 
We all know that compost piles generate heat as part of the decomposition process. How much heat? A large, well balanced (nitrogen/carbon), and aerate compost pile can get up to 120-140 degrees for as long as six months, depending on the size of the pile. Learn more, and see examples, in the Self-Reliance Catalog.
