By: John Wesley Smith “Destiny Survival”
Many preppers are already keenly aware of the dangers of GMO foods. We’ve heard about the benefits of organic farming and gardening. And we see the need to support those who produce locally grown food. These issues come together at the annual conference held by the Missouri Organic Association, February 5-7, 2015, in Springfield, MO.
My guest on DestinySurvival Radio this week is Sue Baird, Executive Director of the Missouri Organic Association. We talk about that conference and other topics.

We also talk about the dangers of GMO foods and the use of glyphosates Read more “GMO Foods Dangers & Organic Farming Benefits!”

Composting is pure gold for gardening!
Host: Nick & Don “We Grow Ours”
This week on the We Grow Ours show, Nick and Mark Forman from 15,000 Farmers joining us to talk about composting. Mark tells us some good ways to get started and gets into some of the ways that composting has worked for him. We discuss why nothing organic should ever leave your home, but rather be put into that big pile of “Compost”! Compost is one of those things that make many people think of a big smelly pile of #$$%, yet in reality you can compost under your kitchen sink, in a small bucket or a large area, but no matter how you do it; it does not have to be a smelly proposition.

Before you plant a seed or seedling, you need to apply some fertilizer to the soil or container. What kind and how much depends on what you’re growing, and your particular style of growing. So it’s important to have a good understanding of the nutrient needs of the specific plants. Whether you’re organic, or just a conventional gardener, there are plenty of choices when it comes to feeding your plants. For this week’s show, I’ll be talking about N-P-K…the fertilizer ratio that is printed on each bag. For many people, the preference is simply a balanced fertilizer like 10-10-10 (triple 10). But suppose you want to address the nitrogen issue for side dressing a heavy feeder like corn. Or maybe you want to increase the flowers in your flower garden by adding some phosphorus. What products are available? How do you know which is best, or when to apply it? Join me tonight on Preparing to Provide for an interesting discussion as I answer these questions and many more, and try to help you gain a better understand of what you can do to grow a better garden.
