Greenhouse gardening, this is what I’m talking about!

Preparing to Provide125Times are tough, and getting tougher by the day. The proverbial handwriting is on the wall. In order to survive in an uncertain future, we need to be finding more ways to grow our own food. For many of us, that means a garden. But what happens if a storm wipes out your garden? What happens if you have a rainy spring and can’t get the garden planted? Where will you get the vegetables that you need to can and preserve to make it thru the winter? My suggestion is to build a greenhouse. With a greenhouse, you don’t have to worry about too much rain, because you’re growing inside. And if it’s built properly, a greenhouse will withstand most storms, with the exception of tornado’s and hurricanes.

In order to maximize the use of the greenhouse, it helps to be able to grow during the winter. But for most of us, that will require some type of heating. Depending on the size of your greenhouse, one option for heating is a Rocket Mass Heater. They are very efficient and can be the difference between freezing temperatures and a harvest. Also, if obtaining fertilizers is a problem, you might want to consider aquaponics. With aquaponics, you simply feed the fish, and they provide the fertilizer needs for the plants.

My guest for this week on Preparing To Provide is Rob Torcellini from YouTube. His YouTube channel is  http://www.youtube.com/user/web4deb Rob has an incredible setup. He built a huge Geodesic Dome greenhouse for indoor growing. For his grow method, he has chosen aquaponics and has been growing vegetables thru the winter. To heat his greenhouse, he built the most awesome Rocket Mass Heater that you’ll ever see. He even had it set up for automatic feeding of wood pellets. And to top it all off, his electrical needs are being supplied by solar panels. Rob is well on his way toward being self-sufficient and will be a great source of information for those of us who still have a lot of work to do, or anyone just getting started. Please join us for what promises to be another fantastic show filled with lots of useful tips and advice.

Well tonight on Preparing for Life’s Storms, BexarPrepper will welcome in Bobby (mhpgardener) an avid gardener, friend and gracious spirit. Bobby built both his greenhouses; I like to call them hangers cause their big enough to fit a plane in. He is learning hydroponic gardening he also gardens the traditional way, like the rest of us.
