Raising Your Own Chickens (part 2)

Raising Your Own Chickens (part 2)
Host: Bobby Preparing to Provide!

Raising Your OwnDuring the last show of “Preparing to Provide“, we had a great discussion with Paul Wheaton and several callers. A lot was discussed, with quite a bit of focus on long term objectives. Things like rotating paddocks and free ranging would seem to be the end goal for a truly self-sufficient method of raising chickens. However, not everyone has the necessary space for these methods. And for a beginner, sometimes you have to crawl before you walk. A lot of questions remain. Things like… Where to buy chicks? Is it better to start with pullets? How many chickens can you have per coop? What feed is best at what stage? How to deal with extreme heat and cold? With that in mind, we’re going to go back and fill in a lot of the blanks.

Host: Bobby MHPGardener

Seeds We SowAs important as seeds are for growing food, there are some seeds that I feel are much more important. I’d like to talk about the seeds we sow each day by our actions. In everything that we say and do, we plant a seed. It can be as simple as saying hello to a stranger, paying for someone else’s meal in a restaurant, or calling the owner of a lost dog after seeing the phone number on the dogs caller.

In each case, it’s possible that you may never see that person again. But you don’t know what the future holds. There may come a time or situation where you desperately need help, and one of those people remembers how you had helped them. Or they may show up at your door one day with a gift of thanks. You just never know how things will play out. But one thing is certain; you can’t reap a bountiful harvest without first planting the seeds. Continue reading The Seeds We Sow Every Day!

Gardening without Soil – Understanding Hydroponics

Gardening without Soil – Understanding Hydroponics

hydroponics277x185For most people, gardening involves spending some time working the soil, adding compost or fertilizer, and planting seeds. But there are many people who don’t have the land, space, time, or physical ability to do conventional gardening. So how can they still get involved in growing their own food? One answer is hydroponics, growing plants without the use of soil. There are many different setups that can be put together to meet the individuals needs. It’s a fun and productive way to grow most any type of vegetable.
