This week Lisa and I talk about getting out of the house and starting to work in the yard. While Lisa has been hard at work planning her garden and getting everything ready to go, I am a little behind the 8 ball so to speak. I have never taken more than just a passing interest in gardening over the years but this year I decided to build a greenhouse and learn more about what it takes to grow my own food and hopefully have a successful garden in a few months.


My plans for the near future are to put an aquaponics system in the greenhouse because I want to see if I can get the fish that are needed to survive through the winter. Hopefully I can get this system set up before the end of summer.

I say hopefully because this greenhouse has cost me a “little” more than I expected.

We also discussed a few other topics in this podcast…

  • Starting a compost pile
  • Insects, the good and bad
  • Different kinds of seed
  • Raised bed gardening

We also have a little competition going to see who can grow the best garden, or who can reap the most. Stay tuned to the podcast in the future to see who won.

Survival and being prepared should not only be a passion, it should be a lifestyle. The definition of a prepper is "An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances, without substantial resources from outside sources" Like the Government, police etc. I don't believe that the end of the world will be the "end of the world" I believe it will be the end of the world as we know it now.
