The process of gardening is the result of more than tilling, planting, weeding and harvesting. It is also the result of preparedness to overcome challenges such as location, pests and other unforeseen complications like unusual weather. Imagine the pressure a prepper will be under to produce a harvest after TEOTWAWKI when their life depends on it. After the SHTF, an ordinary vegetable garden becomes a survival garden Continue reading PREPPER SUPPLIES: Growing Your Own Food→
On this episode of Makers on Acres Tech. Build and Grow show we are discussing modern agriculture and how our modern way of producing food will not be able to keep up with the population booms and how it will affect its own ability to produce. Continue reading Agriculture, keeping up!→
In the words of farmer, and cattlemen!
Host: Nick and Don “We Grow Ours”
On this episode of the We Grow Ours show we’ll discuss the pros and cons of conventional farming with Jerry Klein. We’ll touch on the farmers views about GMOs and new age cattle treatment. We’ll also talk about the need for varmint control… and the good times you can have hunting them!
Seeds and Prepping Plans, two great shows for tonight from our Saturday hosts “The Prepared Canadian” and “The Road Less Traveled”!
Seeds, what’s the difference? Now that the snow is gone, or almost ,our thoughts will be turning outdoors. More specifically to the gardens. There is no shortage of skills to learn or knowledge to be gained when it comes to growing your own food. We have to think about soil and amendments, water and storage for irrigation, mulches, hugel beds, etc. but how about spending some time thinking about your seeds. We have all heard that we need to have heirloom, or open pollinated seeds, but why? What is the difference between hybrid and GMO? Are they both bad for us?

The Gluten Intolerance – GMO Connection
Host: Noreen “The Homestead Honey Hour”
Did you ever stop to wonder why it seems that so many people are diagnosed with gluten intolerance? I cannot think of a time in recent history when so many people seem to have either been formally diagnosed or self diagnosed as being “Gluten Intolerant”. It may be that we see gluten free products all over the marketplace. It may be that many of the labels you see boast that the contents are “gluten free”. But did you ever wonder why this seems to be so rampant? Continue reading Gluten Intolerance – GMO Connection→
GMO’s the wolf in sheep’s clothing deluge our cupboards and lives. Have we been unknowing guinea pigs for the past 18 or so years while our Government touts GMO’s as the answer? Are we in fact feeding ourselves Franken food? Despite promises of increased yields, drought resistance, cheaper food and enhanced nutrition none have yet to be met by the current glut of GMO products to date. Evidence compounds daily connecting GMO’s with health problems, environmental damage and farmers and consumer rights. Yet our Dept of Ag continues to promote and approve this Franken food assault to health. Continue reading Assault to Health, Franken Food!→
Today on the Doom and Bloom Hour Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy discuss their recent travels and why our freedoms are so unique. Dr. Bones will provide a primer on fractures and casting a broken bone. Nurse Amy explains how to get your container or raised garden started. She explains what heirloom, hybrid, GMO and organic really means.
Nurse Amy and Dr. Bones have been podcasting as the Doom and Bloom Hour for over two years. Their shows are focused on medical preparedness including strategies for medical issues without access to modern medical help, herbal medicine, survival gardening, recent world issues and topics affecting those who are trying to become more prepared for times of trouble.
Have we been unknowing guinea pigs for the past 18 or so years while our Government touts GMO’s as the answer? Are we in fact feeding ourselves Franken food? Despite promises of increased yields, drought resistance, cheaper food and enhanced nutrition none have yet to be met by the current glut of GMO products to date. Evidence compounds daily connecting GMO’s with health problems, environmental damage and farmers and consumer rights. Yet our Dept of Ag continues to promote and approve this Franken food assault to health. Is there a way to be as the fabled Phoenix and rise out of the ashes of the GMO debacle, a way to claim back and insure a safe and nutritional food source? Join Lynna on The Other Side…A Preppers Path and her special guest biologist, science writer and speaker Geri Guidetti as they share info on how to take flight and insure and protect yourself, family, friends and more with non-hybrid and non-GMO seeds. Geri is the founder of The Ark Institute and has devoted the past 15+ years to growing and preserving endangered food seeds and developing The Ark Institute as a resource for these disappearing varieties.
During my last show “Preparing to Provide“, where I was discussing seed types, I ran out of time and was unable to cover GM or Genetically Modified seeds. The topic of GMO (genetically modified organism) is one that most people have a very strong opinion about. With the failure of California to pass Prop 37, a bill that would have required specific labeling of food to note whether it contained any GMO products, those opinions are stronger than ever. However, not everything that you hear about the GM story is accurate, especially as it relates to the seeds that you put in your garden. Should you be worried about GM seeds? Which ones are on the market right now? Can you buy them? What can we do to slow the spread of GM seeds? What can we do about the store bought foods that likely are GMO derived? What can you do to make a difference? These are a few of the questions that I plan to answer during this discussion. And, unlike my first show, I will hold off on the phone calls until I have fully presented my case. At that time, I will open the phone lines and address any further concerns and questions. When all is said and done, I hope to have offered up a solution that anyone could be a part of. Time will tell.
You want to grow your own vegetables, but you’re unsure of what seeds to buy. With so many seed catalogs and online options to choose from, it’s not always easy to make the right choices. Open pollinated, heirloom, hybrid… and even GMO. What are the differences? What type should you buy if you want to save seed? Which ones can help you deal with potential disease problems? Who should you buy from? How can you be sure that the seeds you purchase are not GMO seeds? Join Bobby on “Preparing to Provide” as he offers a thorough explanation of vegetable seeds and provides answers to these questions and many more. After this discussion, you will be able to open any seed catalog and know exactly what seeds you should purchase to meet your needs.

You can’t tell me it wasn’t a good time. While a few of the topics were serious such as GMO and there effects. Having all four of the Honeys on air brought quite a few laughs as well. There was a few recipe questions fielded but also a little garden, talk on new Youtubes to come out and some great comments and questions from listeners and those in the chat room. If you missed the live broadcast get yourself a cup of coffee or maybe a soda, sit back in a comfortable chair and enjoy yourself as you listen in player below.
