World 3.0 Part 3


Clip from my Book "Surviving the Super Grand Solar Minimum":

From our future history (Book 1)

It’s a Grand Solar Minimum like occurred during the Maunder Minimum. Yes it was cold and icy; but people froze to death and starved. People were less healthy because of poor nutrition and exposure to the environment. Crops failed in more northern latitudes. There were summers and some crops were able to be grown. The crop growing areas had to move 300 to 600 miles south to produce any food. Winter started earlier and lasted longer. Spring was a crap shoot when it came to planting seed because of frost. The summer was shorter and wet causing fungal problems. Seasons abruptly started and ended. People migrated south. There were wars because of food shortages. Some areas went completely off line. In the US it was better to live below latitude 35 degrees. The US financial system failed because of high food prices and energy costs. People realized that there would not be enough food available (at least what they could afford). There were social disruptions and people on the streets demanding that the government help them. During the winter the electric grid suffered badly with blackouts and disruptions. After the minimum hit its peak, the United States no longer existed as a viable place to live and work. Medical facilities are not available. Police and law enforcers went home to take care of their families. Martial law was declared but it was impossible to enforce it. After about 20 years, the sun started to warm the earth once again and it became possible to grow food. The US at that point had a population of 90 million very thin people.

From our future history (Book 2)

It’s a 400 year Super Grand Solar Minimum. All the above will happen with some additions. Most people will not be able to live above latitude 35 degrees. If you live below latitude 35 degrees, you will have to live underground during the winter because of brutal cold. Canada will no longer exist as a country. All of the US will go offline when it comes to food production. It will be really hard to grow food during the short summers. There will be no power or any type of services available to people. The population in the US was reduced to 20 or 35 million at best. The best places to live will be a bit above and below latitude 15 degrees. Migration will be south and countries will resist people coming to their countries. This Super Grand Solar minimum will last 35 years, utterly destroying civilizations. It will warm up after it’s all over. Sun Spots will return and people will start moving north once again.

From our future history (Book 3)

It’s a 3600 year Super Grand Solar Minimum. Things go badly after the year 2021 (as they are starting to do now). Food becomes really hard to afford because of energy and food inflation. The economy collapses. Stocks, bonds, 401ks, retirement funds and all banks fail. The US is bankrupt and Social security fails. Because of all credit lines being destroyed, the JIT (Just in Time) food delivery system freezes up and food is not delivered to stores. People that had money cannot get to it because of the failures. What is transpiring in the US is happening on a global scale. People cannot afford to drive their cars, pay rent of purchase food. Marshal Law is attempted to be enforced, but starving people will not be quieted. US cities and other global cities are burned because of unrest. People desperately look for food and armed people decide that to eat and feed their children they will do anything. The US goes into complete anarchy. All the above takes place while winters get colder and colder, and more and more food production goes off line. Australia goes into a historic drought. Parts of Europe are buried in snow and can’t even dig out during the winter as the military there and in the US is helpless. Europe, Australia and parts of northern Europe begin to look just like the US. China is having a problem feeding it’s billion plus people and there is unrest. By 2028 the earth will be a different place. There will be pockets of people surviving in slightly warmer places but not many. Because of high levels of volcano activity a new Ice Age will start. Earthquakes which are epic during Grand Solar Minimums will destroy places all over the earth, especially the west coast of California and the eastern part of the US and along the Ring of Fire. Food and energy availability will become a thing of the past. When this is all over they may be 500 million people alive on the earth. Because there are no global records that speak of what happens during this kind of period, thing could be even worse. I see during this period that if we are smart enough, we will build floating islands around Central America and grow food. But in this world that we live in now, I don’t expect it.

More gloom (sorry)
Sometimes I sit up at night thinking about what I have written above. It’s pretty bad I must admit.

The thing that really keeps me awake is the following hard facts:

  • People don’t live on farms or have gardens for growing food.
  • People don’t have any idea how to grow food.
  • I had a young lady ask me what I did with seeds I just purchased.
  • People don’t understand the JIT system.
  • People have maybe two (2) days of food in their home: perhaps a little more.
  • People have little or no survival skills.
  • We have become a society of Cell Heads and whiners.
  • Because of junk food and our way of life, many people are mentally and physically in poor shape.
  • Obesity is epidemic.
  • We have placed our complete society at the mercy of fragile electronic systems.
  • We seem to think that solar and wind will somehow green the planet (whatever that means).
  • Our children have been protected from birth and don’t know how to take care of themselves or make simple decisions. (Many still live at home).
  • Very few people will actually believe the SGSM will happen because of the global warming garbage. It will be too late to do anything when they finally realize what is happening. Good way to reduce the population. Very Sad!

So to sum it up – No Food – No Life – it’s that simple. Me I am thinking future story 2 or 3. What about you?

Our Savior

Just when things look very bleak, a savior will arrive. He will be dressed in a nice suit and tie and have a great smile on his face. He will sympathize with what is happening in the world and that we deserve better. From his lying lips and smiling white teeth he will have a plan, but to save the human race we will all have to work together like bees in a hive. He explains that the problem is all those greedy companies and hoarding people and farmers who control everything including all the precious food. To make it through all of this and "it will only be temporary", we will all have to give up all our personal needs for the whole.  There must be one great global clearing house for commodities like food, medical, power and security. Everyone will be given a place to live in the city where they can feel safe. All that completely cooperate will receive a subsistence salary. It will not be easy, but this man looks like he knows what he is doing and has the right answer. The weary hungry world that is still dumber than a rock will accept the new global system.

To actually implement this great saving system, all humans must be part of the great digital system that tracks all their needs and ensures that no one gets more than they need. Hoarders, troublemakers, and those who oppose the system will just be left out with no way to buy, sell or be employed. To prevent fraud, all of those in the system will have an imprint on their head or hand or arm that cannot be seen but read by special scanners. This will ensure that each person on the planet gets what they need. Those in the system that know who are abusing the system are encouraged to be reported to the one world security forces so they can be removed.

The whole world is at peace. No more of that stupid religion stuff, and all are encouraged to worship at the now world wide combined church. It's really peaceful there and you can worship what or who you wish as long as you don't push it on anyone else. There is even a peaceful place there for the guy in the suit!

The guy dressed in a nice suit and tie will still have a great smile on his face. It seem that his teeth are even whiter than they have ever been. There will be nightly newscasts that all are required to be watched (more credits). News that show the glowing results of the new world 3.0. Also a great look at all those sorry disruptive people who are being rounded up. This scum they say have been working against the now peaceful world we are now living in. Be sure to report anyone they think is not fully part of the system. There are huge rewards awaiting those for doing this.

To insure safety, and security of all global members of World 3.0, 5G has been pushed out all over the earth. From fiber, 5G RF systems and even from space, the whole world will be tracked and connected.

Nothing will happens unless it happens using the system. Not a drop of water or an ounce or calorie of food will be drank, used or eaten without permission through the new system. 

Where you went, who you spoke to or what you worked on or wrote or the very words you said will all be stored in the gigantic ever growing and controlling AI system databases.

The world was at peace. I repeat, the world was at peace until one day..................

Cheers and the best of everything from Central Texas.



World 3.0 Part 2


World 3.0 will happen, but how it happens depends on every person on this earth takes what is written below and lives it. If not everything you have ever worked for or loved will disappear from the face of the earth.


Do not allow those who would steal your dreams, you treasure, your worth, your hard work, your cherished children, your spirit, your faith or your very soul to succeed.


Yes indeed, World 3.0 will be an icy place, but the world will also burn with unrest and war. The picture on the left is Rolf Witzsche. I will really miss this kind, gentle and loving person. Rolf has passed on to his Creator, and unknown by many leaves this planet a lesser place by the absence of his loving spirit and love for humanity.

Rolf saw a coming full blown Ice Age as shown below in the graphic. The scale on the left in the graphic is solar wind which has diminished as seen by measurements made by satellites. The sun is a large collection of gas and plasma fed by galactic currents. These currents are not constant but cyclic which in the past has caused the earth to heat and cool. We have just finished a heating period and are descending into a full blown (thousand year) icey period. As the currents that provide energy to the sun become weak enough, the sun (much like a weak fluorescent light) will go into a LOW GLOW mode. The sun escentially dims and the earth cools and a new cold and icy ice age is born. It stays that way until the sun awakens with increased galactic current.


It seems that the whole world and the universe are not at rest. There is a great agitation in the minds of man. There is also a rumbling that can be heard as the universe makes the works of its puny citizens  fade into insignificance.

The absurd CO2 argument is like a grain of sand compared to the vastness of the universe. How stupid it seems as the folly of all this will be exposed in the backdrop of the Super Grand Solar Minimum.

Ice Age Thinking

Here are some facts to think about. Many of these facts are derived from Ice Core Data which is about as good of data as you can get. Humans presently are living in the Pleistocene period. As shown in the graphic, we are living during one of those periods of a pulse of warm climate. For the most part, the earth has been an ice planet for 80 to 90 percent or more during this period. So technically we are living in an ice age called the Pleistocene. Generally when people talk about ice ages they are really talking about the cold periods of the Pleistocene.

The big question is are we coming out of this present cycle of warmth and heading back into cooler time? From many things, it looks that way and will be covered in this blog. Remember I am just a traveled, free thinking old man, so don't expect any great solar physics breakthrough from this blog.

To answer this question is really important and could determine if we are prepared for what is coming or not. What could be coming is a cold that would cause the human population to teeter on extinction. I would think that most would agree that it is a good reason to look at the data we are collecting now, and very old and ancient data called ice core data. None of the ice core data is made up or messed with. It has no political agenda at all. It's just the bare facts laid out for us to look at and ignored at our own peril.

Most of us have heard about the little Ice Age and the problems it causes with crop failures, little food, migration and disease and generally a crappy place to live in Europe and the US. People survived through all that and eventually things warmed up and things got better. But what may be coming is a different animal (dog) as they say. What is really startling is what happened during the Little Ice Age compared to the Younger Dryas. See the graphics below.


A crazy 0.5 degrees Celsius Change.

Take a look at the temperature variation during the Little Ice Age. (graphic below) The misery of the Little Ice Age was caused by a temperature drop of around 0.5 degrees. Europeans almost froze to death. There are good records of what happened during these times and can be read about.

Now for something different

If we look at the same graphic during the Younger Dryas, something totally different happened. Cooling during that period was 15 or more degrees Celsius cooler than the Little Ice Age. No one in Europe if they were living there would have survived.


World 3.0 will a very cold time perhaps ending in a thousand year cold and icy period. But what about what might happen to the human race during this period? It is suggested that you read what I have written at the top of this blog. I would suggest you cut an paste the red text and email it to all your friends and family. It's really a message for the whole world and will be what I will be discussed in the next blog as we continue looking at the human part of World 3.0.

World 3.0

It's January 2022. New year celebrations globally were almost non existent. The world was getting even colder and the winter of 2021 / 2022 is a brutal one. Crop losses in 2021 were huge. China was having problems feeding there people not that the CCP actually gave a crap about it's people as the CCP was just one big gang of thugs intent on world domination and nothing was going to get in their way, even the people of china.

Here in the states, things were not much better as the results of the election and Trump's overwhelming win were still being disputed. It seems that The US was going into another civil war. The US never recovered from lock down 1.0 and 2.0 had finished it off. Millions of once employed and productive people had lost everything. There was little hope left on the faces of Americans, and the brutal winter and ever escalating food costs made matters worse.

As the grand Solar Minimum (a super one) slowly made it's intentions made known globally there were huge increases in Atmospheric Compression events. Places that had never seen snow were seeing it. As the jet streams went out of their normally behaved tracks people were experiencing extremely violent weather. Actually it was not weather that was changing, but climate!. This mixing of very cold and warm air created intense collisions. In this case, two different jet streams collide, usually side by side. On one side is very cold or frigid air that may have originated in the arctic and another jet stream that originated in lower latitudes and brings with it intense mostly extremely hot and moist air. At the boundary between these two, some amazing, violent, and dangerous things were happening. Intense positive and negative lightning were mixed with huge dumps of snow. Many feet of rain in hours and the creation of extremely large hail which were softball size and larger were killing people and animals all over the planet. Some of the hail events wiped some small town and villages off the face of the earth. The most scary and perplexing thing was this was happening in a random fashion all over the planet. People became afraid of what was happening and tried to stay indoors as much a possible. 

It seamed that the earth had been on a Roller Coaster Ride for millions of years but was now in motion, violently moving down the track. The earth, sun, and our solar system and galaxy all seem to be intimately entwined in a multitude of cycles. There was harmony there, with occasions of great violence. The earth and the universe did not seem to care about the citizens living through this almost apocalyptic moment. The reality was that the universe did not care about it's citizens. Just deal with it was the message.

The Awakening.

At the start of World 3.0, more and more crops had failed. Bad weather, cool and short summers, and early frost all targeted the failing mono-culture growing of food.  Prices continued to rise and some things were never seen in the grocery store again. And early In the year 2023 the now 8 billion people on the earth came to the realization at the same exact time that there was a food shortage. Billions of people world wide purchased or over ran food supply facilities and horded any food they could get their hands on. Globally the military was called out, but how do you stop a million starving people from getting to food at any moment?

The New World Order

The elite (1%) were ready for this as they had stripped the earth of most anything valuable which left billions on the streets to die. Some people had predicted what the New World order would look like but were very very wrong. Soon people found out that the New World Order was taking on a new look. It seems the real intention was not to alert humanity of the coming cataclysmic earth changes but to keep there eyes on other things like the political side show in Washington and the Chinese CCP virus and any other things they could think of. Enslavement would come later - Much later.

While the press was filled with unbelievable garbage, the elite were stripping humanity of any thing of value. With all their ill gained rape and pillage, they were preparing for what was coming. They laughed when they thought about all the CO2 and political useful idiots freezing and starving in the coming years.

Yes, it was one great wonderful party, but humanity was not invited!


The intention was not save anyone but their own asses. They would wait in their rat holes until the damage was done. The population of the earth would be a billion or less, and they were going to let the universe do it's dirty work for them! And when the whole earth had ripped each morsel of food from each other they would come out of their holes like roaches that they are and take control.

That's when things will get really interesting

To be continued!

World 2.0


Well we have talked about world 1.0. If you are reading this then you are an expert in it as you have lived through it. I have spent the last 76 years living in World 1.0 and mostly except for a few things have been blessed with everything I ever needed. Rich? Well not in money but very rich in spirit. But something happened in the last 25 years. I guess what I am talking about is the world and especially the US has lost its moral compass. The US and most places on this planet have becomes cesspools of porn, baby killing factories, pedofiles (yep even in my church) and the transport and selling of human flesh. Marriage and the family have been desecrated. I could really get graphic here but wont. Just that sex is a commodity and not a pure gift any more These of course are subjects never talked about or heard about if you live in a Black Box. We have told God Himself to take a hike from our schools and public things. So with the coming of Christmas 2019 and that Chinese escaped virus we were led into World 2.0.

All I can say about that is when the calendar pointed to January 2020, little did we know that soon we will get and reap what we have sown. What we have sown is evil. Ya you may say I am not evil, but you let evil live right next to you. You let your children be exposed and bathed in it, and for that we now have some very almost useless children who have no moral platform to base their lifes or decisions.

Like in the 60's, If it feels good do it!

So with that I say goodbye to World 1.0. Nice knowing you.

So let's get on with World 2.0. World 2.0 will only last for at a maximum of two years.

After that world 3.0 will be born, and the world will yearn for the way it once was. So what is going to happen for the next two years? As you can tell, I like bullet points, so here they are:

  • Medical craziness as the shutdown of the world due to the Chinese virus will be pushed out as far as possible. At some point, the Global Elite (your masters) will relent, but with that will come even worse things.
  • Medical Tracking (your permit to actually do public things).
  • They will try to enforce lockdown 2.0 which will lead to a even larger collapse of what is left of the middle class and small business.
  • Continued and increased joblessness and homelessness.
  • People unable to feed their family properly or if at all.
  • Governmental Cryptocurrencies instigated all over the planet and for a push to a centralized Cryptocurrency.
  • Possible complete failure of our present financial system.
  • Talk of a guaranteed income. (just sit on yous ass and don't make trouble).
  • Continued loss of crops and growing areas due to global cooling.
  • Increased food costs. (4, 5 6 and 7 X increases in some products).
  • Possibility of a VE 6 or 7 Volcanic eruption that add to the above cooling.
  • Possibility of large earthquakes here in the US and other places. This and the above bullet points all happen during Grand Solar Minimums.
  • The US never recovers from the November 2020 election. 
  • US troops in large cities due to conflicts. Burning, looting and possible armed events in the streets in large and even small cities.
  • Because God has been run out of the US, evil people and evil things will replace what no longer exists.

That's enough I hope. Will all the above have to happen? There is one glimmer of hope but a small one. One day the good citizens of this country could all stand up (millions of citizens) and say enough. Will that happen? Well I point to my black box blog. People will not do that as they are afraid, asleep or just dumb as rocks. Take your pick but I believe all the above. Below is a graphic or World 2.0. There are two things I would like to point out. The Rich get richer and people who have lost everything lose it. Face it, what would you do if you had nothing and your family needed shelter and food? Would you lose it? I suspect most of us would. So how do you feel about all that is coming? And before I close this blog I would like to ask some questions. They will be in bullet points:

  • Are you interested in a war?
  • Are you interested in burning down everything?
  • What would you do if you had no money or food?
  • Do you like the idea of 16 to 25 % interest rates?
  • Would you like to have an interest free loan on a car or house?
  • Do you think that everyone should have a home, medical care, food, safety and a peaceful existence?
  • Do you like being taxed to the point where your are broke?
  • Do you like the world as you exist in now?
  • Would you like to live in a world where productive things happen?
  • Would you like an atomic weapon to be dropped on you or the city you live in?

So my question is why don't you do something about it? Do you like being a slave? Remember life is about choices. Mostly a simple yes or no. What is you choice and what will you do if you do nothing and in the end have to make that choice?

In my next blog, I will go over World 3.0. I can assure you it will not be nice. It will really get bad. So if you think what I am writing about is just BS, then go back into your black box and drink that last beer and eat that frozen pizza as the next beer and pizza will be a long time coming.

Wishing you everything Good from Central Texas.







How many things can you do very well if you're hungry? Most people need air to breathe, water to drink and food to eat. Take any of these away, and the really important things like your heart beating will cease to function.

My blog has always been about food and growing your own. I have been over and over this and I hope some people have taken me seriously.

I suspect that in the back of most people's brains is this "Where are things going" type of thinking. Perhaps you don't pay much attention to that brain activity, but if you wait too long to actually look closely what is happening, then it may be too late.

The world as we know it looking back to Christmas 2019 will never be the same. I sure hope you enjoyed it. Place that in your memory as well. Christmas 2020 will not be like 2019 and Christmas 2021 will certainly not look like 2020.

If you have not noticed that things are not the same as they were last year (2019), then I might ask you what brick or rock have you been hiding under? If you think that everything will work out if you just sit at home, then you are living in a big black box.


I find it very amusing that many (most) people would never want to talk about the things  in the above graphic. Most would take one look at it and say it's "very negative" and go back into their black box never to come out again. Sorrowfully at some time they will have to come out and it will be too late. Hopefully you don't live in one of those boxes. Once you come out and take one look around, I am sure you will yell "crap", then at that point you can get on with your life.


There is no life in a black box.

So what will life be like in the next few years? From the looks of things, it looks like the Grand Solar Minimum will be with us for the next 30 years or so. As we go into 2021 and 2022 and 2023 thing will only get progressively worse. Worse in what you may ask? The answer is worse in everything. Especially worsening food availability. Like the title of this blog : It's ALL ABOUT FOOD". If you cant see this coming, I would suggest you purchase my book "Surviving the Super Grand Solar Minimum. While this book was written about 1 1/2 years ago, nothing has changed in it. And everything in it has been mostly confirmed. This will help me keep this blog going as well. This blog will cost $300 to renew in January. You can get the Book Here at this URL.

You can also help me if you need seed. Both of these two seed providers can be relied on. When you purchase I get a small commision, and using me will not have any increase on what your seeds would cost. The URL is HERE.

I have purchased thousands of dollars of seed from the above in my microgreen business.


I have gone over the following for the past two years. I think it's worth repeating. So what is the human race going to face the following 25 to 30 years?

Before I start, it's not going to be nice, so if you live in a NICE BLACK BOX, then you should go over to Facebook and look at cute cat and puppy pictures.

The List:

  • Global Governance (they will try)
  • Social Unrest
  • (Super) Grand Solar Minimum
  • Magnetic pole flip of the earth
  • Increased Galactic radiation
  • Increased clouds
  • Unstable and wandering Jet Streams.
  • Biblical droughts and floods.
  • Collapse of the North American food growing chain. It will be really bad in Canada and it the US Northern States.
  • Decreased SI (Solar Irradiance - Cool Sun)
  • Possibility of a global grid down scenario caused by the earth's weak magnetic field and a hiccup on the sun.
  • Possible micro nova at the end of the 30 year period.
  • Probably a little ice age at the minimum.
  • Severe DNA damage from the increased Galactic Radiation. Caused by the earth's weakening magnetic field.
  • Economic crash (happening now).
  • Huge increases in food costs (happening now).
  • Global starvation.
  • Possible US population decrease to 90 million!
  • Possible WW3 with Russia or China or starting some place on the planet (India and China).
  • Global growing zones going down, and North Africa becoming the new bread basket for the world. Do you think you will get any food from there?

I could easily write a book on each item above. I suspect if you are reading this, then I can almost guarantee that you don't think about any thing on this list too often. This I suspect is my FINAL WARNING. To get through this you must come out of your box and start preparing. I suspect if you are in the same frame of mind like me, your family and friends think you may be just a bit crazy. I know it's that way with me.

My plan is to work with what is coming our way. There are HUGE possibilities in preparing for the above. People will need help, and that is where you can prosper and at the same time help your neighbor. It is not possible to get through this period by yourself.

Soon the new money will be food, water, protection, silver, gold, the human spirit and a community.


Below is a picture of World 1.0.

In my next blog i will go over World 2.0.
World 2.0 won't last very long, perhaps for all of 2021 at best. Then, World 3.0 will take place and won't end for the next 20 years. That will be a subject of a blog as well.

World 1.0 takes no words to describe. All of us went through it, and it will never return again. It ended with a Chinese virus from a lab that probably escaped and changed the whole world and the way we live.

Wishing all my visitors the best of everything.   Dennis in Central Texas


The Gift of Me


The Gift of Me is two audio recordings that outline my faith.

While I am Catholic and I love my faith, I am primarily a Christian and to sum all that up I am a child of God, and so are you. Jesus DID NOT just die for Catholics! He died for the human race. And no this is not an ego trip, but that’s for you to determine. Also please don’t correct me on some biblical things or on things I may have said. This is not a contest.

Please note anything in my two audio files are what I believe. No one has approved what I am talking about is a fact or the truth. Take what good you can derived from then as you have free will to do so. I am at peace with my Creator and if we all were this world would be a more peaceful place.

The two files may be downloaded and given to others if you wish, but in no case may they be modified, sold or represented as a product or that you and I have some special relationship. Doing so will be is considered to be theft.

Audio 1 Play it here onsite or download below

Audio 2 Play it here onsite or download below

You can download the Audio Files below. There is a menu bar to select that option. Click Download to start. Then download again.

I hope you enjoy the above two files. You can contact me below if you wish. It is hope that the whole world discovers who and what they are and that we may all live in peace as brothers and sisters.

You can contact me through this site if you wish.

All the best from Central Texas and that grumpy old guy in Manor Texas


Take a Reality Break

OK I know most of you out there are sick and tired of this Plandemic thing. Yes the virus is real but is being used to destroy the world as we know or want it. It's an agenda of destruction, insanity and control. Its an agenda to what I think is to completely destroy freedom democracy and goodness.

So put down that Cell Phone. Actually turn it off for a day and see how you feel. After reading my blog, turn off whatever you are using. Turn off your TV and radio or your MP4 player. Quit watching all those useful idiots burning things.  Even my pet pig does not crap in his home and then roll in it. It all stinks and it is meant to destroy what freedoms we have left.

The take off your shoes, put on some shorts. No socks and take a chair with you and go outside. Sit under a tree and just listen. Here on my farm the stars were bright, and I could hear crickets chirping. My outside cat begged for a little food which I told him soon! If its daylight go out in the sun and face it. Close your eyes and look up at the sun and enjoy the warmth. Notice how your back side is cooler. Turn around and let the sun bathe you its goodness. As you walk around do you feel what you are walking on. Is it green grass of something else? Sit in that chair and close your eyes and just listen. Are the birds chirping? Is there a breese hitting your face? Wiggle your fingers and toes. See how instantly they respond to your wishes. You will notice that things are normal out there and the world is still the world. Notice that once your return to your home how silent it is. Beware, once you flip the switch or power up all those things you left behind the chaos starts again. The agenda it thrown in your face. The manipulation and tracking starts again and you become a hunted animal once again. Things are not normal there and that is where they want you! Welcome to insanity!

My warning and the warning of others. Have no doubt that eventually the caos, insanity and objective evil will soon prevail unless you wake up. Unless you say ENOUGH. Unless you shut it down, it will eventually consume you, your family and your children.

From what I am seeing, it will actually take this evil to come to your home and toss you out in the streets before you believe it. Then it will be too late.

But that's not all that is coming and we live in interesting times (an old curse). Not only are we being manipulated with this virus by destroying our jobs, our food system and any thing that is good, it will get even worse.

Please note that when my contract comes up for renewal I will not renew it and Surviving the Grand Solar Minimum will cease to exist!

Why? Money and the fact I won't have the time for this blog as few ever return and I have a feeling that most that do are like minded. I will be looking after my family in the coming months and years as the Forth Turning makes it way into our lives. Interesting thing about this is that the outcome is nothing more than a choice. People have chosen and that choice is "DO NOTHING" and the rewards of doing nothing is that you will loose every thing that is dear to you. Yes even the pizza and beer will not be there. But all the above is just a small part of what mankind will soon have to face.

All along the purpose of the "Surviving the Grand Solar Minimum" has been about global cooling and its implications. It's on it way (a gift package from the universe). If you understand what is coming you can prepare for it.

So what is the gift from the universe I just mentioned? In a nutshell it's 35 years of cold icy weather that will destroy our crop growing systems. Soon the 7 + billions of people on this earth will wake up and realize that there is not enough food. Unless something is done and done quickly, then many billions of wonderful people (usually the weak and poor and those who will not listen) will vanish from this planet.

There are dangerous times coming our way. Even if the planet was at peace and everyone loved each other, that would not be enough to get through this. Soon you will have to grow your own food. It's not possible to live through what is coming the next 35 years on stored food. If you think this then you are wrong.

So whats new? Actually nothing, as what I am presenting below has been repeated many times. So please read what is below and make your own decision. The dark side wants to enslave you and the universe is speaking to you. To quote a movie "Winter is Coming".

To start go to Electroverse at this URL.
And for the complete article go to this URL.

Below is a picture that I have edited a bit to focus on where we are going in this gift from the universe. What is happening, (read the article by Valentina Zharkova ) is that the sun is taking a holiday and will return to what we humans call normal in 35 or so years. The magnetic fields of the sun are going into reverse (canceling) mode which will result in a cooling earth. Note that in the graphic I have colored this period.



To top all this off, there is one last thing I would like to mention. That last thing is that it looks like the earth's magnetic field is on it way to flipping. The north magnetic pole will become the south magnetic, etc. To do this, the magnetic field will eventually get to zero at the point of flipping. OK, so what you may ask. Well at the moment the earth magnetic field has been reduced by around 22%. The earth's magnetic fields protect all life on this planet from radiation for space. They also protect our power grid when the sun has a hiccup. With reduced magnetic field protection, smaller and smaller hiccups will be need to take down our electrical system. Then no power. Then we will be looking for horses and will let our cars rust. I suspect this could reduce the earth's population down to a few billion or less. I have no doubt that this will eventually happen unless we kill each other with hate. In that case only a few will survive. BUT its actually mandkinds choice and I am not bettion on stupid hating, godless humans to make the right choice.

With that I am heading to breakfast. I would suggest you think about what I have written.

Wishing all of you love and especially enlightenment in the coming times.

Dennis In Central Texas

Got Seeds?


The above pictures are from the Great Depression era. Many people in 2020 will be losing their homes because of the lock down and the destruction of jobs. A repeat? Well yes but it will be many times worse.

Not only will we be facing all this, but the Grand Solar Minimum and the magnetic pole reversal and waning magnetic field of the earth are relentless and cannot be stopped.

As I watch the world go crazy with the virus, unemployment, shutting down of our food systems and the crazy prices at the grocery store, I am reminded what my grandparents went through during the great depression here in the US. They didn't want to talk about it much, and my grandmother always brought up positive things to talk about. She always just said "Well we just got by" and ended the conversation. They were just children at the time, but you could see that there was a branding of sorts deep in their minds. Later in life when my grandmother married, they always had a garden, chickens, and of course a pig or two for ham and bacon. There were mules and horses and a milk cow.  This was city living at the time. My Grandparents lived on the wrong side of the tracks so to speak, but that was were the switching station was and my grandfather had to be close to the tracks. My Great Grandfather was a teamster and brought cargo that arrived on ships into Central Texas.


So why am I bringing all of this up? Well I see what my Grandparents had to go through breaking out all over the world. We are probably not going into a Great Depression but and end of an era or the fourth turning. I call it world 2.0. It's a world that few can even bring their minds to think about. It makes the depression of the 1920's and 30' a walk in the park. Now is the time to start thinking about your own security and especially food security. Not only are we facing what I think is a man made virus that was put together in a lab and escaped, but we are facing people who want to drag the United States down. Any sane person should see what is happening. It's amazing what people are putting up with.

None of this really surprises me though as the US has been dumbed down to the point that they will believe anything they are told. Even worse most do not know how to take care of themselves.

My Grandparents did, and I do because I watched, but our children and grandchildren can't tell time, write a letter or tye their shoes.

That is why the last eight or more months I have been involved in new ways to produce food that even the most dumbed down American could do. We all must soon learn to produce our own local food or we will soon see food being used as a weapon. I suspect that if you and I are hungry and have no food, we will consider anything to eat that next meal.

I and about four other people are working on some amazing things. All of these things which at the moment are being patented will be available on our new store in about four months or so. We are also looking for people who might be interested in being team members of what we will be releasing in the future. Some of the things will put food growings systems we now use to shame. You can expect food output to be almost four times (yes 4x) as good as the sorry way we grow food now. It's not chemical or mechanical but earth based. Please follow my blog to see what I am talking about.

In addition I have a new store where I sell seed. At the moment I have more that 30 plus types of seeds for sale.

When we release or new food growing technology, my store which is up and running an the moment will be moved (merged) ino our newer store. I can almost guarantee you will be blown away by what is coming. If what is being released is used globally, then the world could increase the food supply by 4X. You will be able to grow much of your food in your backyard, and local food growing communities would feed hundreds of people.

Please believe me when I say that I am not a snake oil salesman or selling a "Pig in a Poke", or something that sounds so good that it's not possible. I am putting my reputation on the line on what will soon be released.


You can visit my store HERE at the following URL. Please note that at the moment seed is only available for shipment in the lower 48 states. We hope to offer shipments to Canada soon. If you are not in the US, I would suggest that you VERY SOON source your own seed locally.

Thanks and best of every thing from Central Texas.


You and I are Wonderful


After looking back at many of my blogs, I hope I have not fostered a sense of hopelessness. As I look out at the world  when I was three, four and five. I can remember hiding in the grass with a large stick and a bottle of water looking at life as it passed me by. I was a big game hunter at the moment and I was ready for anything. There in the weeds I could see people walking and cars going here and there. Ants I can remember thinking. What is the purpose of all that ant like movement?

Well that was around seventy two years ago, and little did I know that until I could actually look at all those ants as my brothers and sisters would I discover that relationship between everyone and myself.

I guess why I only saw ants at that early age was there seemed to be no meaning in it. Who were they, where were they going and for what reason? Of course at that time my universe was a closed up one as I had the stability and love of my family which I never questioned. But there was one thing that burned in my being and that was a sense of self. Little did I know that it would be years in the future to finally discover who I was and what I was about.

So if I may, I would like to blog about what I discovered lurking there in my very being. It took a lot of works, tears, sorrows and large amounts of discovery to finally come to this point in time and understanding.

First, I found that I was unique. I was much like a snowflake as it fell to earth. Looking closely, I found that I was a most beautiful and a complex creation. Indeed every human on this planet is like that, but few do realize their beauty and complexity. All of us are amazing creations.

The next thing I discovered and it was painful at times was that while I was that amazing bundle of things, so was every one else and we all have this almost undefinable connection. We seem to have this magnetic and spiritual connection and if we let it, it can bind each of us in a wonderful sense of what and who we are.

Humans in their make up are not meant to be an island where they only live.

Next, I realized that I could create things. I could create mental, spiritual and physical things. I realized that I was not trapped into what society seems to dictate, but I was free to be most anything I wanted. Of course that means I could create good and bad things.

Of all the things I have created in my life, love was the best creation. Love from my outlook was wanting the best of everything for everyone no matter how they look, sound or what they do.

As a technical trainer, I discovered that people are open to most anything if approached correctly. I found people are hungry for answers, help and an atmosphere of safety.

When I discovered how wonderful I was, it was easy to see this is others. All human have the build in ability to be creative and simply amazing. It simply takes my breath away talking to and engaging those who see life as an opportunity to share, cherish and expand all the possibilities of love.

I firmly believe that love has tremendous power. It can defeat armies when combined with communities of loving people. The collective NO has a power to change even the worst things.

Finally, I created this burning desire to live on a planet where everyone's needs are satisfied. A planet where there is no war, and everyone is looked after. It would be a place where children can run and play and be safe. My desire is that each human could develop into what has been placed in their very being at birth. It is a world where there are no taxes, slavery and conflict. Health care is for everyone. It is not a perfect world but one that we have the absolute ability to create. This is the world I try to live in even if it does not exist now. But one thing is for sure, it does exist in my mind and it can exist in yours as well. If enough people want and demand this world, it will happen. It's the power of yes or no.

Mankind is on the cusp of some monumental things. The evil blood sucking part of the world is increasing it's hold on things more and more. Soon you will have to decide if you want a better world or a world of hurt. Along with this virus we are suffering with and its manipulation, there are the global, galactic and universal reality of change heading our way. The Grand Solar minimum is real. So are food losses and the possibility of global food shortage.

We as humans at this point in history have the option to be that wonderful amazing creations we all are or we can sit back in that closed off world of me and mine or indifference and let it destroy you. Personally I want to live in that better world I just described even if it's in my mind.

Perhaps, what is happening is creating hopelessness, but I can see a different outcome, only if we collectively choose it. We don't have to be controlled or be debt slaves. We don't have to come to a moment where we will eat or pay our bills. We don't need armies or weapons if we just choose that. That is a world we are heading into. Is it a world you want? If it isn't, what are you doing about it? Yes you are small but you are a wonderful creation that can do wonderful things. You have been told you are nothing which is a lie Start living that wonderfulness and say yes to it.

Can you imagine what this world would look like if we took all the money we spend protecting each other, things of war and armies and spent it on peace, love and happiness? How prosperous would you be if there was no taxes and there was global peace. What if there were no boundaries of Me and You and Them? Can you imagine a world at peace? Where life is cherished and we are all brothers and sisters? It's POSSIBLE but you must WANT that!

Love and wishing all the best of things from Central Texas


1 OUT OF 10


If you have been watching the world lately, then you may have noticed that it seems to be going crazy with stupidity. After having watching what people are willing to put up with, I am seeing more dead people. Lately when I go out in the public, I have started playing a little mind game. I try to pick out the 1 out of 10 who will survive what is heading our way.That means I am looking for the 900 million who will be alive in ten years. The others the 9 out of 10 will be dead. This is assuming a global population of 9 billion which we are approaching.

I really hate that I am thinking these thoughts, but it seems that humans are mostly a stupid species and are afraid to do anything on their own. If you look at what is happening now and in the past, it seems that humans will put up with about anything like herded sheep. Once it gets so bad, the sheep revolt, but it's always too late. The sheep herders just laugh and continue to shear the sheep. Of course there are fewer sheep. That is exactly where I thing the global population is going. The sheep herders are winning and have always won.

While I am not sure I will be the 1 out of 10 to make it through all this, I certainly see it coming.

There is a solution to all of this but I don't see it happening as it seems that genetically humans are not capable of getting along for very long. As humans, we have never seemed to have had an embedded moral compass. Even when we did, it only worked in a half ass way and only during good times. When things got bad, it always becomes a "Every One For Them Self's" environment. There is power in community, but I have beat that dead horse for the past years in my blogs with little.success. What we need is a global community that will eliminate all the sheep herders, but little chance of that.

As I said above, there is a solution and that solution is Jesus. But that seems to put people off. Why I am not sure.? All He wanted was for people to love God and our neighbors. Pretty simple, but not very sophisticated enough I guess. Perhaps it's just too simple. A solution to world peace and global prosperity? But then apparently too simple I guess. Or perhaps people don't want peace and prosperity?

If you are turned off by religion, then I have a suggestion. The problems with religion is that people seem to think they must be a part of it and therefore add their little crappy cruddy part to it. How in the heck can you add anything to Love God and your neighbor? That is absolutely perfect, and if you add anything to it you only corrupt it.

That is the reason I think most people see religion as a collection of crazy people. To be a Christian is absolutely simple. Just follow and embed what Jesus said into your life. Don't write thousands of books about it. Don't create thousands of laws about it. Don't wear special clothing or cut your hair a special way. Don't wear silly hats or caps. and especially don't push your beliefs on others or kill them because they are different. All this is corruption of the most pure and perfect law ever. You could sum up the law as "LOVE".

I am absolutely sure that the solution of  "Loving God and our Neighbors" (the law of love) will never work. The reason? Jesus said that in the end, there would be little flesh left on earth except for the intervention of God.

So, will you be the "1" out of 10? Perhaps you are the one out of the billions who see what we are doing and what is coming. Perhaps you are getting ready for all of this.

Getting ready in my opinion has two levels. One is spiritual and the other is physical.

You had better take care of the spiritual first as you may be one of the 2 through 10. So what are we globally facing soon? I am thinking very soon.

The Global, Geophysical, Solar and Universal Train wreck.

While humans here on on earth seem to be intent on killing each other, the universe seems to have it's own plans for our little blue planet. I Like bullet points so here are some:

  • Waning and changing magnetic field of the earth. (Down 20+% at the moment)
  • Magnetic North and South Pole Flip.
  • Grand Solar Minimum (Perhaps SUPER One).
  • Cooling Sun
  • Increased Galactic Radiation and increased cloud cover.
  • Galactic current sheet intensification (Micro Nova)
  • Possible decent into a cold and icey multiple thousand year periods of the present Ice Age
  • Because of our weakening magnetic field, the possibility of a grid shutdown caused by the sun.

The Social Implication of  the Global, Geophysical, Solar and Universal Train wreck.

You didn't think you would get away from this did you? All the above bullet points have happened before. They were deadly and at some point almost reduced humans into extinction levels. But we are still here, so there is hope in getting through this. Again, here are some of my loved bullet points on what the human population will have to go through.

  • Global crop failure and famine
  • Cold and icy times
  • Drought and excessive heat
  • Narrowing of global growing season
  • Human migration
  • War and social unrest
  • Attempt at Global Governance. They will eventually fail.
  • Huge reduction in the global population
  • Medical problems and disease
  •  Human and animal and plant life pressure caused by an increase in radiation.
  • Violent weather - Rain, wind, hale, ice and snow.

We all live on this planet, and mostly we don't do a good job about it. We are nearing a point where the earth will soon push back. Do you think about the fact that we are all now eating and breathing plastic? We have sliced and diced the world and sold it. How many cell phones can we make, and how much electronic generated radiation can we take? How much longer can we go before we have to decide to eat or pay your bills. How much longer can millions be unemployed or without food? These are thing ALL of us will soon have to face in the future and some are now facing.

The useful idiots are out there burning down everything and big technology is looking for way to track and control you. Soon there will only be a few big company's that control all the food and we will become their slaves.

These are things we all will face and are we even thinking about them? Are you still living in your little closed off box? Better come out of that box before it's too late.

If you thought that this blog was about DOOM AND GLOOM

Then you are wrong. This blog was about REALITY.

Cheers and best of everything from Central Texas


It’s a Cool Wind Blowing


It's a cool wind blowing here in Central Texas. I guess if you live way south of here like in Australia, then it would be a Cold South Wind Blowing as it's winter there. It KINDA feels like a small part of winter never left here in Central Texas.

Greenland is piling on the snow and ice. Take that you Global Warming useful butterflies.

It's been cool almost all of the spring here and I thought the North Wind would never stop blowing which was rather harsh on my newly planted garden. Today is June 14th. and the north wind just stopped blowing. For the previous 7 days we have had north wind.

I suspect this cooling is directly being caused by a cooling sun, and the Grand Solar Minimum which is slowly showing why we call it a MINIMUM. It's not over yet and we are just getting started.

Some of the things I am hearing is crop failures all over the earth. China is having problems and there are runs on grain. Australia is importing wheat this year and Vietnam has shut down it's exports of rice.

Last week the pacific North West saw unusual snow, and its been very cool from Denver north. Ontario is seeing the coldest weather in years. All over the earth seems to feel what is happening and it's not good for global food supplies.



The war on meat and humanity seems to be getting worse as riots, burning and general anarchy seem to be creeping into our society and all the mushrooms are just sitting on their collective rear ends hoping it goes away or it's not really real. (suggestion - write your senator or representative - they can probable help - end of satire)


I cannot believe how much people are not preparing for what is coming or even know what is going to happen over the next few years. Well politically and spiritually I may not know but I certainly a see a FOOD SHORTAGE in the winds and they have not stopped blowing. I guess when the Pizza and Beer runs out and the pantry runs dry they may just start to worry.

In the next two years, the almost 8 billion people who like three meals a day will finally realize that there will not be enough food to feed those 8 billion. Soon this planet may just have enough food to feed 4 billion. That's when the hell on earth starts. I suspect it will be "Every one for them self".

There is only one solution to growing in the deep depths of Global cooling and the Grand Solar Minimum and that is:

Local Food grown by Local Farmers for Local People.

Photo by Francesco Ungaro on <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>

The solutions will be growing at home, in our back yards and in Solar Greenhouses. We now have the technology to create a modern solar greenhouse that is energy efficient and does not need huge amounts of external electrical power to heat or cool them. Any thing else is just a MONSTER high-tech garbage dump that contains money and eventually will fail. Food at home can be supplemented with sprouts, Microgreens, grow towers and a grow bag system outside or under a small Greenhouse. Local solar greenhouses can circle the city and provide the city center with fresh food though out the whole year. The greenhouses would use modern plastic covering, earth provided cooling and heating and a covering that could be automatically rolled out during periods of bad weather, very cold nights or excessively hot days. These solar greenhouses can be assisted with solar power and for supplemental lighting and local power if needed. In addition to these solar greenhouses, there is additional technology I can't speak about right now that will make them even more efficient.

Please note, vertical farming in large buildings will eventually fail especially if the grid fails. Every thing in these monsters will die. Not so in a Solar greenhouse that uses solar power for pumping water and lightning and earth cooling and heating. This technology is available now, and I hope to be a part of it's execution. So can you if you are not the couch potato type and has a beer and pizza belly. You will die with the 4 billion people on this earth that never though beyond their nose, and live in a small box physically and mentally.

All the above has to start very soon or our cities will become burned out shell of days gone by as people flee what will be inflected on them. What we need to start with is the simple design below and add a little technology to it.

Well that's all for this blog. I sure hope you are doing something about your food security. If you are looking for seed, here are two I recommend HERE.

Cheers Dennis


I eat an all plant diet and have for about a year. I am now 77 and have as much energy as I did when I was much younger. This book (PDF) is free. To get this Book go HERE. Note: you must use your email to get the book - Just a heads up and being honest.

The 2020 Garden And Something Different

Looking at Sprouts and Microgreens (small Scale)

Well my 2020 garden is in full swing. The tomatoes, squash, potatoes and peppers are prolific. I am waiting on my Okra and have had a meal only once, but more is coming. I also have a large amount of late seed potatoes to put in this week. It’s getting hot and humid here and it finally looks like there will be no more north wind in June (which we had). It looks like that is over. While the heat is great, I some how suspect that we will have a short summer and quickly go into a cool fall. I also have a feeling I will be harvesting late potatoes and Yams.

So what is up on my plate for the hot summer in my house? As the above states, I am growing sprouts and microgreens for all that salad I will be eating as I pick huge amounts of all types of tomatoes. Below are some pictures from a manual I am developing.

On another note, my wife just about has had it on me using her Nana room as she calls it for an office, so I am in the process of moving into one of our old and small (but air conditioned. RVs. To get my attention, she now has to call me on on of my radio’s. I must admit it is a bit quieter out here in the RV.

Here is a bit from my manual I am developing. Note: Probably in about three months, I will have an online store. I will also be looking for some Team Members to help me with it, so stay tuned.

Why grow food in your home?
I can imagine what you are thinking about food after going through the Corona Virus and feeding your family. That is exactly what is going through my mind and is why I am writing this little book. We live in a JET (Just in Time) world when it comes to food. Your local food store has at best 3 days of food on the shelf. It has a few hours of food if everyone who shops there for some reason like an ice or snow storm, hurricane or perhaps some dangerous social problems decides to stock up. The shelves would become empty. The JIT truck has just loaded up its haul to the store. The grocery store is low on some items, and that is where the trucks come in. If for some reason the trucks can’t get to the grocery store, the products that had a low inventory will soon be out and will not be replenished. At that point Too Bad – No Food. Hard to realize but the difference between having food and not having any is a truck and a warehouse that runs the trucks. What has been written above has always been that way, especially as people went from growing their own food (perhaps like your grandparents) to depending on purchasing food from the local grocery store. I would agree that it has been nice to get food from all over the US and food from many different countries. I bet you have enjoyed doing that as well.

What it all comes down to is three things:
• Growing Food and processing it
• Warehousing the food
• Distributing the food (JIT Truck)
If any of these three things fails, there will be little food to purchase, that is unless you grow your own food which this book is all about.

Wonder No More
The iGrow Green Machine located at our store (Mart) has thought out a solution to food and food security. It really didn’t take much thinking; we only had to look back at our relatives that grew their own food. We just sort of copied what they did, but inserted some more modern things to make it easier to get started,
Lets face it, it would not be easy to one day just decide to get a tractor and start farming. What the iGrow Green Machine has come up with is a way to grow you own food at home or in your back yard or In a small apartment. No tractors required and no digging in the dirt unless you want to. So follow along as we explore growing food at HOME!

The WHY of it

Why growing food in your home?
As you have just gone through the Corona Virus experience, you have seen the many things that have created problem with the food chain. At the moment while this has been written, things have gotten even worse, and at least where I live there has been a large increase in food prices. Even this should be enough to make you start thinking about growing your own food, but there is one thing on the horizon and that is that we will be looking at climate change and what warmer or cooler conditions in the coming years which will have a huge impact on the global food supply.
Huge food price increases
Possible Social Unrest
Global Cooling / Warming
Financial Problems

Any of the above things could take food off your table and leave you or your family hungry.

The End Game

If you are new to growing food, then this is the place to be. The path to food security is a path of many directions, but here at iGrow Green Machine, we have mapped out a really simple path. This path starts out simple and as you become more confident, grows in complexity as you progress down this path.
Before we start this path, let’s look at what the ending will look like. It’s always a good idea to see where you eventually end up as you progress.

That path should end with you actually Growing and Eating and Storing food that you actually grew. Not food from the store but YOUR OWN food.


So to get started, here are our suggestions. Obviously they are products we really feel will make your transition into growing food easy and successful. All of these are available on our online store.
Step 1 – Growing sprouts and microgreens Inside you home
Step 2 – Growing in a grow tower in your home
Step 3 – Setting up a grow bag system outside

Solutions Step 1
Sprouts and Microgreens
Growing sprouts and microgreens is pretty easy and will provide you and your family some really tasty things that you can eat directly or add to your salads, soups, that special sandwich you like to make or just about any food.
The wonderful thing about sprouts and microgreens are that they are nutrient dense. They provide many of the vitamins and other things that contribute to a healthy body and immune system. If you eat these two super foods you probably won’t need to take a multi-vitamin. Beside all the above reasons to grow and eat sprouts and microgreens, there is one other good reason. That reason is that they are kid friendly.

Solutions Step 1 (sprouts)

Growing sprouts is simple and it’s relatively inexpensive. Sprouts can provide you with the super food and the power-packed nutrition your body needs at a price that is right. So by growing sprouts, you can save money while eating right. Sprouts are just that sprouted seeds. You eat the seed sprout. With Microgreens you don’t eat the seeds or roots and only the stalk and leaf. More on Microgreens later.

Solutions Step 1 (sprouts)

Well that enough of that. Here a few closing pictures of sprouts and micogreens I am growing inside this summer:

Day 8 – microgreens not harvested yet and still under a grow light:

Well that’s all from Central Texas. I hope all of you ( you all as they say in Texas)are doing well and have returned to work.

Remember to keep your immune system in good shape and this virus will just fly past you. Recommend (not medical advice) Vitamin C, Spirulina, Chlorophyllin, St. Johns Wort, Zinc and Vitamin D3.

Go out side and get plenty of sun so all of these can work properly as they are all photo (sun) activated.

Wishing you all the best.


The 2020 Garden Part 11 of ?

See what you get when go out and pick some wild sweet Texas Dew Berry’s? Yep you are looking at some jam that will make the store bought stuff fade into insignificance. AND this type of jelly is no where to be found in any store in the US. Too Bad!

As I have stated before. there an uptick in the Grand Solar Minimum. Today is April 23rd. 4:25 PM. Looking out the window, I can see the north wind blowing all my vegetable plants to and through . I am looking at some projections and the North East area may be looking at snow into May. Its been really tough on my plants this spring. I am still adding 5 gallon grow bags, and have another one hundred coming. I have run out of room in my 50 x 100 ft. garden and have resorted to grow bag growing which works really well. I am starting to see some baby squash now, but I really need more heat to get things going. It’s been really weird as we have run the AC and the heat in April. We are seeing some very violent weather come out of Texas lately. I went back into some of my old blogs, and notices that many of the storms and heavy rain start here. Heat and moisture is collected here in Central Texas and then is fed up north where it collides with cooler temperatures (Atmospheric Compression). That sort of thing flooded the US food basket areas last year and I suspect it may happen again.

Hopefully many of you are getting tired of all the shut in and have decided to start a garden. Now would be a good time to get seeds as there is huge pressure on company’s that sell seeds. You can still get them, but many seed types are sold out and you have to wait for your delivery. I have had to go to four or five different seed providers to get what I want, especially for my fall garden that will be planted in two low tunnels. In the future I will also be growing in the house. I am looking at microgreens, mushrooms and two hydroponic towers. I am planning to eat fresh veggies and even some tomatoes from the house.

Ideas – Growing on top of a frame. Why bend over when you can harvest overhead? This is from my friend in China.

My potatoes are looking good – Harvest in 60 days. I have a 100 ft. row of these guys.

Below are two pictures of some sprouting and microgreen trays I am testing. So Far so good

Here is a view from my outside camera of my Ruth Stout Garden. On the right are my grow bags (outside the garden). I am growing sweet potatoes, potatoes, squash (summer and winter), egg plant, tomatoes and peppers.

Well that all for this blog. At the moment it’s May 5th. 2020 and another cool front just blew through. Bet the temperature dropped 20 deg. Very strange year here in Central Texas weather wise. If you are having problems getting all the food at the grocery store like I am, you probably should start growing your own food. I have already harvested about 20 lbs of squash, and the tomatoes are starting to put on tomatoes. Squash, Kale and carrot soup with home made bread tonight for dinner. I just planted a bunch of finger potatoes in grow bags and I have 50 more lbs of potatoes to plant. Guess what I will be eating this winter?

Seriously, if you have not started growing your own food, you will be in a world of trouble in the future. Things are not looking good here and in Canada as the economy has been wounded and there is more and more unemployment every day. I am hearing things like this virus thing may be around for the rest of the year! I sure hope not as that could completely destroy the world economy. Also the Grand Solar Minimum is forcing many country’s to quit exporting things like wheat.

To put it in a SIMPLE way – No Food – You Die!

Best of everything from Central Texas

Start a community (over your phone if necessary)
Order some seeds
Scout out places you can grow
Start a garden or a community garden
Take care of your family and especially your older members.
Take care of the needy and those who have less than you do.

It’s time to start outfitting your ship

Look Here Not There – Looking at the Enemy

Have you noticed that the enemy has poked their heads out for all of us to see lately? Like Senator Elizabeth Warren want a “Corona virus Containment Corps“. Yep they want to track us down, take our blood and temperature. Bill Microsoft Gates want us all to have a vaccine and to have a certification. The WHO wants to take care of all this from a global stand point. And the ?pope? wants to give me a universal income so I can sit on my rear and do nothing.

So what is going on here while we all listen to our rulers as we watch crappy video and TV at home? What people don’t understand is that we have four enemies. All of them want to kill most of us. One of them wants to kill ALL of us. These four are the following:

  1. The Red Guy with horns known to most of us as Satan. Or Lucifer called the Light bringer, shining one, light-bearer but it’s a dark light.
  2. The Globalist. (every thing except the CCP and Russia)
  3. The CCP (The Chinese Communist Party)
  4. Russia

Two (2) through four (4) all work for the Red Guy. Number two directly, and the CCP and Russia indirectly. The CCP and the Russians probably don’ts believe in a God, but two (2) for sure knows and they are in bed with the Red Guy (1).

Almost all our worlds leaders (except for the CCP (3) and Russia (4)) are in bed with the Globalist (2). The CCP and Russia have a sort of agreement on who gets the world when this is all over.

The Globalist want to reduce the earth’s population by 80% but the CCP and Russia just want to kill all those who occupy what they think of as their land at the moment. The CCP is slathering out of their mouths for the USA. One problem is that they don’t want any people in the US, so they must be destroyed. Looks like Russia will get Canada and Alaska in the deal and perhaps parts of Europe. India belongs to the CCP for sure. The Globalist just want it all and probably realize that the CCP and Russia doe not see it that way.

Wonderful right? We now have four enemies, one of which wants to kill all humans. One that works for the Red Guy, but don’t understand that he wants them dead after he uses them to kill all of us off. Finally we are looking at the CCP and Russia and they want us to get off their property (as in dead).

Two (2) through four (4) don’t want to use nuclear weapons as this messes up the real estate and the Red Guy (1) doesn’t really care.

So are we up the creek without a paddle? I would say yes, except there is a paddle, and that would be Jesus. I think He said that men’s hearts would fail them with the things that are coming.

But it gets worse. The globalist (2) see the CCP (3) and Russia (4) as the enemy. So the real estate may really get messed up if things go nuclear.

So how does the CCP get rid of all those stinking Americans on their land without messing up the properly? My idea is an EMP, and wait for 90% of Americans to kill each other or die. Use a Neutron Bomb which kills people but does not destroy property. The Neutron Bomb is a low yield thermonuclear weapon designed to maximize lethal neutron radiation in the immediate vicinity of the blast while minimizing the physical power of the blast itself. The problem is that it kills everything living like bees, birds, animals etc. Not all that clean. And last, how about a virus. Perhaps the one that escaped from china?

All the above is pretty nasty for sure. I absolutely believe everything I have written above. So what is a poor human to do? With all this coming at us at supersonic speed things don’t look so good at the moment.

Here are my thoughts. In the end it will be the globalist who will win. I am thinking that China has way too many people to feed, and the Grand Solar minimum may cause the CCP to be tossed out by hungry people. You can be sure that is worrying them at the moment.

The Secret Speech of General Chi Haotian at this URL Here.

There has been rapid development of modern biological technology, and new bio-weapons have been invented one after another. Of course, we have not been idle, in the past years we have seized the opportunity to master weapons of this kind. We are capable of achieving our purpose of “cleaning up” America all of a sudden.
So here is why the CCP wants the US. ” If the Chinese people are strapped to the present land, a total societal collapse is bound to take place”.

Think about it. All this is becoming very obvious. Every day there seems to be something else comng our way. Not just the above four, but the Grand Solar Minimum, collapse of food, and the weakening of the earth’s magnetic field. Boy do we need a break! Global Warming anyone?

The War on Meat – Global Control of Food AND you

So how are you feeling sitting there in your home just waiting for things to happen? What will our rulers and masters tell us to do next? Sorrowfully, probably 93% of the worlds population will go along with what they are told to do. The war on meat and food is just one part of what our rulers and masters want. Have you noticed that these lock downs are actually destroying the middle class even more. When I say middle class, I am talking about people who actually employ people and run small businesses. When we come out of this if we ever do, there will be a solution. The solution is that all of us rich and poor will need to be vaccinated. You will need proof that this has happened or you will not be allowed to go in public. No trips to the store or even drive your car.

First, lets be clear, this virus we are experiences kills. The following is my take on all of this. I would suspect that this virus kills people who have really bad immune systems. So who might that be? If you have had chemotherapy, then that completely killed your immune system. If you have some really bad infection or medical problem and you are taking drugs then you may have a compromised immune system. If you diet really sucks and you are a fast food addict then you may be compromised. If you stay inside and are rarely exposed to the sun, you may have weakened your body’s defense systems. Americans may have the worst diet in the world. Diet can contribute to a compromised immune system. GMO, junk, fast and processed foods are horrible for your health. Drinking, smoking and doing drugs take another link out of your body’s defense system. And finally it kills older people especially those in care centers. Why is this. It’s a no brainier. Most of the people there suffer from some medical condition that requires care and attention. If you are older, say my age which will be 77 this coming May, you probably have some medical condition you are being treated for. You may have eaten a horrible diet all your life. You may be weak and stay in a lot, get little or no exercise and rarely go out in the sun. Obesity is another killer. Just being overweight can have health effects. You may be taking drugs that compromise your immune system.

So lets look at another thing. Being shut up in your home can cause mental problems. Humans were never made to be isolated. Being isolated can cause health problems. You need the sun and to get that you need to go outside. This is a sneaky virus which seems to have the ability to infect people easily. So when it gets into your body, and you have a great immune system, you may have the sniffles or nothing at all.

Viruses are nothing new. There are perhaps millions of them in our environment. If it were not for the body’s immune system, humanity would not exist. It’s a healthy immune system that protects us from the viruses. So just being healthy goes a long way in protecting us.

The crux of the problem and an observation: If your system has a top notch immune system, this virus will probably just fly by you. BUT, any thing you do to destroy or interfere with your immune system makes you a target. With this virus, it looks like a short trip from a compromised immune system to being infected, to the hospital and in some cases a bad outcome. The solution? Stay healthy.

Below is a blog I wrote last year. You may have been reading about meat shortages, no eggs, or chicken and pork in short supply at the grocery store. All this works into what this shutdown from the virus is doing to our food system. Personally, I no longer eat meat, fat, oils, milk or eggs or any thing made from these items. But I don’t have a war on meat. I like all these things, but at my age with a history of heart problems (bypass surgery and diabetes) my decision to go plant based is my choice, not something being decided for me.

Here are three great YouTube video’s on plant based health. Please don’t eat one of those bloody burgers!

Link one HERE
Link three HERE

Yes there is a war going on and it’s trying to kill our consumption of that horrible disgusting meat.

As you probably believe (wink wink) that eating meat is warming the planet, and if we don’t stop will burn up the planet and we will all die!

From the Urban Dictionary:

If you have never heard the term “useful idiot” it was the attitude held by Vladimir Lenin towards communist sympathizers in the West (America). While Lenin and the Soviets held them in utter contempt they also viewed them as tools for dispensing communist propaganda to other countries, thus infecting foreign cultures with their totalitarian tripe. After their mission was complete, they were no longer “useful.”

Perhaps most were sent to reeducation camps and other places.

It’s a term the refers to brainwashed American Marxists who blindly support any ideology that gets themselves out of real work and causes others to pay their way. Jeepers, I hope I don’t offend anyone with the above. But surely anyone who believes that destroying the consumption of meat and eliminating animal agriculture to save the planet must be a “Useful Idiot”. But that’s my opinion and I am a flawed human. I have constructed a few graphics below for you to enjoy.

Coming to a school and restaurant near you. Yes veggy burgers are the real thing. I tried one as a test. Disgusting at best. Created gastric anomalies and was not sure what I was eating.

Yes meat products thanks to chemistry. My taste buds are on overdrive right now!

OK so whats this war all about? So what is the agenda. There is always an agenda and it’s not always obvious but this one sure is obvious. Its called global CONTROL of food.

The end result of all this is for corporations to supply all your food. Modern agriculture is frowned upon, and will ultimately reduce their bottom line if you eat good healthy nutrient dense foods you grew or others provided. It is the agenda of globalists that want to put humanity in a box where the will be forced fed (pun intended) anything they like. It’s the complete subjugation of humanity on a massive global arena.

Just think. At this moment if you are lucky, you are a FREE RANGE SLAVE. Yes you can move from place to place, but the company owns you and the store ( and your house if you actually purchased one) and this will get much much worse.

While I watch all this play out, I am amazed what people are not doing to save themselves from all this madness.

What they are not doing in my favorite bullet points:

  • Drinking the cool-aide
  • Be happy don’t worry as they drive down the road with their cell phone in front of them.
  • Not preparing for the above agenda
  • Not preparing for the Super Grand Solar Minimum
  • Sitting on their posteriors doing useless things like looking at their big screen TV
  • Eating the incredible bad for you GMO and processed foods
  • Not preparing for most anything
  • Not growing their own food
  • Not starting local communities
  • Having at best two weeks of food in their homes
  • When things get bad thinking they can call or write their representatives (too funny)

So soon if you ignore the above bullet points, you will be enjoying living in a corporate built and financed box where as I said above feed their processed food boxes.

It is my belief that we are quickly approaching a fracture of the global growing systems. Crop failures continue to add up, and you only have to look at the grocery store prices to realize this. In two years your life that you may have enjoyed the past years back will cease to exist and complete disappear.    

Food will = $$ and if you want to create value and food money in the coming years just start a garden. While food is not the ultimate solution, there are no other solutions unless there is food available.

Darn, again I could not sleep, and this is the result of that. Its 5:00 AM here in Central Texas, and I can hear that darn rooster crowing outside. It’s time to think about what is coming our way. Its not just you and that grumpy guy in Texas, but its the whole world.

It’s time to prepare.
It’s time to grow a garden
It’s time to join or start a community
Winter is coming and also those global corporations who are coming for you

See you next blog and here is wishing you the best of every thing for you and yours

Read This If You Like To Eat

Not too many warnings left

While the Corona Virus rages around the earth and grocery stores are cleaned out and food is getting harder to find, there is something else going on during all the distraction of this virus. Is it OK to be distracted? If your health is at risk then the answer may be yes, but there is something even more dangerous then the health effects of this virus and that is food loss.


If you like to eat then you had better listen to what many are talking about. As this virus swoops through the whole world, those who escape and were not killed by this virus will soon have to face another life threatening problem. That problem is food availability. That problem is being caused by the Grand Solar Minimum that looks like it may be a 400 year or longer cycle of conditions that are not conducive to growing crops. This cooling could last the next 35 years.

I suspect there will be another problem along with this virus and crop failure and that will be our government who will want to control everything and you wont have much say as it is an Emergency!

Will you give up all your rights because there is no food and riots on the street? I suspect that many of you would. Just protect me and give me food and I will do as you say master! It looks like that is where we are heading and all that would entail. But that is not the reason for this blog.

The reason for this blog is that food will soon become Money. You and I and your family and friends need to become farmers again. Having someone there TO FEED YOU will soon be coming to an end.

Yes its been nice to go to the marked for food that some one else planted, watered, grew, harvested, packaged, transported and sold at a market while you sat on your lazy rear end and did nothing to produce it. That my friends will soon be ending, that is unless you want to be an even greater slave than you are now.

So lets face it, if you don’t grow your own food you are a food slave, and if the governments gets their way in this that will only increase. If they can control food, then it is quite easy to control everything else and our wonderful constitution will have been buried under tons of governmental control. This will be control that you did not vote for and in many cases you did not know anything about. That is what is coming you way and it will all start with this virus that globalist are thanking their lucky stars for.

I have written over and over about growing your own food. It’s not rocket science. Your ancestors did it and none probably had a horticulture degree.

Plant a seed in good soil and keep it watered and generally it will fulfill it reason for existing and that is to produce something you can eat.

Wow is that so hard or crazy? Of course it’s not. Some expert out there will tell you that it is hard and the insects will eat up everything. Oh its so hard and I am such an expert that has been all through this and as an expert I can tell you its hard. Well BULL. If a 76 year old grandfather can do it so can you. If you are young it will be even easier. At 76 I hurt a bit from all the work but eventually I will have a garden that can feed all my family. SO CAN YOU.

It will become harder and harder to get seed. That can be done now, but will become harder in the future with this virus. Get 7 years of seeds (At most $100.00). Get non GMO and heirloom seeds. Harvest your own seeds and trade with others. You will never have to purchase seeds again.

So what is coming down the line? What is that double light we see coming our way? Yes one is the virus, and the others is the Grand Solar Minimum and food loss. Last year farmers in China, the US and other places all over the earth had problems getting crops put into the ground. Some were never harvested, and some were not even planted. That was the 2018/2019 crop season. It now looks like the 2019/2020 crop season will have the same problems or worse as the previous one. China, the US and the rest of the world will be looking for food.


Follow my Blog on my garden so you can see even an old guy like me can grow food.

Here are my two places HERE that I trust and have purchase thousands of dollars of seed from them for my personal garden and my microgreen business.

Take care of your self. Protect your older members of your family (Like Me).

The End of the World?

Hello from Central Texas. Below are MY IDEAS and not truth scratched out in granite!

Yes things are happening as in regards to the Coronavirus here in Texas. Cases in North, Central and South Texas. Is this a world ending event? The question to this is yes if your are selling fear and 20 year supplies of food. The answer is yes if you have gone absolutely crazy with fear. As in the book and movie DUNE, Fear is the mind killer.

I have friends in China, and yes there were some pretty rough times there, but things are returning to normal and people are returning to work. Were there huge economic and medical consequences of the virus? The answer is yes. People there got sick and died and some did not. Yes it is in the general population but less and less as times goes on. Trains and transportation are once again moving as all the car and truck traffic suggests and speaks volumes as to what is happening. Life is slowly returning to normal in China.

Because we live in the Nanny States of America “NSOA” I am not sure how all this will work out. The most at risk here in the US are the old, especially those who have severe medical problems which nursing homes are full of. The young not so much. Smokers especially are at risk. If your immune system is weak or impaired you are at risk for sure. Eating fast food all your life puts you at risk as well as most have no idea of their health quality. This virus normally does not kill the healthy. Again if you are suffering from some severe medical condition you need to keep away from people.

As a 76 year old grumpy grandfather, I am worried as well, and at the moment I am keeping out of crowds and away from people as best as I can. I fully suspect that I and my family will eventually become exposed to this virus. Probably every one on this earth will. But that is not the end of the world.

When it’s all over.

When it’s all over I may not make it through all this. Death is a certainty and a eventuality for all of us. If you first think this way and suppress the fear and prepare, then you can live your life with joy until your final breath. That’s how I try to live. If we go crazy and only think of our self’s then there will only be anarchy and darkness.

IF you have older fathers and mothers and grand parents, now is the time to look out for them. If possible, have them stay home and you take food and supply their needs as we get through this. (Yes decontaminate it first).

It will end and I think by the end of the summer it will all be over with and we will have to count the dead much like the wonderful Chinese people are doing at this very moment. But it will not be TEOTWAWKI “The end of the world as we know it” unless we make it that way. Don’t run into a wall of fear and don’t listen to all those fear merchants. Fear is the mind killer.

We have something headed our way that is even worse than this virus, and that is global cooling which will eventually destroy our ways of growing food. Look at this virus and the coming food growing problems as an opportunity to start living in a different way. Soon we will be looking at a new world as we cast off the shackles of oppression. Become a part of that.

Wishing you health and the best of everything from my little farm here in Central Texas

The Future of food

The future of food in the coming years will not be from some mono-culture behemoth food production system, but local farms that circle urban cities. Food will then be produced by:

Local Farmers
Growing Local Food
For Local People

The 1000 mile salad if you just think about it is simply crazy. There is an enormous waste here in fuel and infrastructure costs to provide that salad on your plate in your home. Even worse, you have no idea where that food came from, what was used on it and even who produced it. Simply put, you have absolutely no control over food you purchase and eat.

Local food negates all this as it is local and is available for inspection by the local food purchasing public. Not only that, it is much fresher and will last longer eliminating waste normally associated with products we regularly eat. One other advantages is that the income for food purchases are kept local and can be use by local farmers to continuously improve quality, availability and diversity of what they are growing. Local food is a win-win for the consumer and the farmer.

The future farm that will be growing for the city core that uses their products will be grown in efficient, low energy use type greenhouses. This type of system has been used for many years in China and has fed many hundreds of millions of people in what I would call mega cities. It is simple and easy to implement and the results are there to see. It is impossible to argue with the success of this style and method of growing local food.

The times they are changing is a song that echoes in my mind as I am a child of the 60’s. Nothing is more true than that at this very moment. Times are changing, and the way we feed our country and local communities is going to have to change and change very soon. With the Grand Solar Minimum creating all types of food losses globally, things will need to be different if we are all going to eat on a daily basis. It is projected that this cooling period will last almost 35 years, and will damage greatly the way food is grown at the present.

I am impress by a company who is creating value for farmers who want to start using this new technology, as they have taken the basic Chinese Solar Greenhouse and added modern technology to improve it’s efficiency and easy of use in an almost plug-and-play system. Things like growing mushrooms in the same greenhouse that feeds CO2 to the vegetable plants growing in the same greenhouse. Also on the table are geothermal cooling and advanced coverings. These coverings are hail resistance, thermally insulating and create an evenly distributed sun light to the plants. Using efficient exhausting of heat build up is provided by a temperature differential vacuum system that brings in cooler air that replaces warmer air. In the winter, these systems can be buttoned up at night by automated blanket type of coverings and create huge energy savings.

ROI. Return of investment can be quite good as the production of mushrooms along with vegetable can quickly pay off the initial investment in their greenhouses. The idea of growing mushrooms in a greenhouse along with vegetables is a new idea here in the states. As you can see below, the typical greenhouse in China is as far as the eye can see. This could easily work here and in your city as well.

Image result for chinese greenhouses

If you thought growing mushrooms is a crazy idea, then think again. There is a better way to do this and most of the work is done for you. The method is as follows: Composted materials like wood and straw are sterilized and formed into logs. These logs are then inoculated with mushroom spore and then frozen. These logs are then transported by regeneration trucks to the local grower who places the logs in a warm greenhouse on a rack. In ten days mushrooms may be harvested and continued for the next few months. This system is so simple that anyone could do it. See below.

If you are interested in this technology please contact me below. There will also be a seminar taking place here in Central Texas (Austin) for those interested in this new business model. The future is local food and as a community we all need to get involved. It is my opinion that this is a great start.

I am not sure how to write this blog without sounding negative, but some times reality is just negative. This blog is actually a type of warning. It’s of course like every word in this blog as they are MY WORDS. So as a reader it is your choice to consider what I have to say is a bunch of bull or has some value in it. As a thinking human you have the ability to make choices. This is no different.

Things we may be facing in the coming weeks and months.

  • A global pandemic
  • Global shutdown of shipping (getting closer to that now)
  • Global shutdown of air travel
  • Financial Collapse (watch the stock market)
  • Shutdown of global food distribution
  • Global shutdown of manufacturing
  • Global inability to travel or move or relocate
  • Global shutdown of all borders (already happening)
  • Global collapse of medical systems
  • Global shutdown and collapse of _______ Fill in the blank.

if you are reading this blog, just plug in your countries name in the above bullet points where it says “Global”. And then there is this:

This global pandemic is just the icing on the cake for the Grand Solar Minimum. Personally I was hoping for a few more years before the inevitable collapse of food supplies made it’s final thrust into the global population. The pandemic looks like it will speed up and compound what will happen to food supplies.

The question is how do you even plant food during a pandemic? In the US this may be even harder by the fact that our bread basket states will suffer like last year or even worse by conditions that do not allow planting. If things here in the US eventually become “China Like”, then who will deliver the fuel, seeds and fertilizer to our farmers. From what I am hearing, crops are not being planted yet in places in China.

So what is the point of this blog? Well If you think I am crazy perhaps nothing to you. But for those who will listen it is time to prepare WHILE YOU STILL CAN”. Even if I am ABSOLUTELY a crazy old man, preparing would be advantageous just in the fact that you could still use what you prepared with.

The facts are:
We are looking at a global pandemic which could cycle around the globe a couple of times. Russia and some countries around Italy are closing their borders. The Grand Solar Minimum is happening (Length probably 35 years).
The earths magnetic fields are weakening and may flip. The sun is shutting down. Cold times are coming.

Personally I think this is the end of ages or something like the book “The Forth Turning”. We have polluted this planet badly. Our moral compass has been lost and we are getting to the point where everything is a commodity is almost over. It is time to clean the slate. All of the above may just do that. Personally I would like to see a new world emerge where people actually love each other. Obviously it’s not that way now.

I am personally shutting my life down and will only engage in things that will profit my family, friends and neighbors. I just oped out of e-commerce and shut everything down, as soon there will be little to actually sell in a store. I will keep this blog up until I can’t afford it (Yes it cost money) or my maker pulls me home!

One last comment on what I think is coming. Because we live in such a marshmallow wimpy country now where even our children can’t make decisions, tell time on a clock, tie their shoes, and we shield everyone from bad news, it will be really bad here. It will be really bad on our children, and shame on you for letting that happen if it applies to you. The US is no longer a country of pioneers but a collection of social media BS. Endlessly checking our cell phones and running into walls. How do you think we as a collective country will face anything that is bad and serious? God have mercy on us I pray.

What If?

This is a heads up blog and a bit of “What If”. If you read this blog, I suspect that you have been following all the virus problems going on in China and gradually being exported into the rest of the world. Because of the things I do, I have had a keen eye on all these happenings. I also have a couple of people who have more insight into what is going on with this virus. Not so much the numbers which seems to be a global cover up, but the actual ramifications of the virus.


At the moment, China seems to be shut down when it come to producing products for the world.

In an effort to produce as cheaply a product as possible, the world has flocked to China for their cheap labor. Huge amounts of technology was exported there, and now most countries like the US have little manufacturing capacity.

Example: 95% of the medicine we use here in the US is made in China. That figure puts a chill up my spine. There is now and has been a shortage of certain medicines needed in operations. If this keeps up, we may see a huge slow shutdown in surgeries in hospitals. It seems we have place our very security in certain areas because of the search for profit which has no bearing on what you would want.

If this virus continues to expand and engulf the whole world, then the global financial system will pay dearly for their decisions of profit first. Probably most of the items sold or seen on Google and Amazon are produced in China. Probably most car parts are manufactured in Asia or in China.

What I am hearing from my friends in Asia is that things are really as bad as all the doom and gloom whispering we are hearing from the alternative media. While the numbers can’t really be confirmed, the problems can. The problems of food, medical help, and medical isolation are real. The problems of manufacturing in Asia and especially in China will soon to be or are shut down are real. The fact that it is impossible for China to isolate any one city or area or even the whole country is real.

As other places on this world become infected by this virus, it is looking more and more likely that we will all as in globally have to face the ramification of this virus. These ramifications are and will be financial and of course medically. The whole world may eventually be exposed to this virus.

Heads UP

We all (at least I will) need to monitor closely where this is going. We (here in the US and globally) will probably be told that there is a problem after it is too late to prepare for it. This virus just arrived in time to be the icing on the top of global cooling and global crop losses. These two things should not be taken lightly, but most people have closed their eyes to anything bad ever happening to them especially here in the US. While the insanity of man caused global warming increases to almost a roar in the mainstream media, a huge two horned monster will with certainty show it’s ugly face.

While I am just speculating, billions of people could loose their life’s from the above two horned monster. Hopefully the readers of this blog will see what is coming and will prepare. If you need your medications to stay healthy you need to stock up on them now. If you (perhaps by law) need to stay home or isolate yourself, you will need a supply of food and water. Two months or more is only a suggestion but easily done now (in the US).

If you ever took typing (wow you are old). I remember typing the following

“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country”

Now is that time, so do the following:
Prepare for that “What If this happens”
Get some seed and start a garden.
Look after your family, friends and neighbors.
Take care of the poor, homeless and those who have less than you.
And finally get on your knees and pray that the two horned monster will pass over you and your family.

Cheers and wishing you the best of everything from Cebntral Texas

The 2020 Garden Part 7 of ?

On the left is a hydroponic NFT setup. It’s really simple. The NFT trays are laid out on some Home Depot plastic sawhorses. The trays are American Hydroponic nursery trays. The reason for the nursery trays is that I am growing baby plants for restaurants. A nursery tray has holes that are closer together. The blue 55-gallon tank at the end holds the nutrient and the pump. I am constructing another one with wider sawhorses and 6 NFT trays for growing lettuce, Kale along with some mustards. I have enough of the 55-gallon tanks to create three of these systems. I have enough of the trays to probably make 12 of these systems. Perhaps later. In the system, I am growing Shiso, Purple Basil, and Red Vein Sorrel. The plants are growing in Grodan Rockwool plugs.

Yeah, I almost finished adding mulch to my new garden as you can see below on the right. Just a few more tractor loads and it will be all finished. Thanks to my grandson Dennis and his friend Mackenzie (community member) for moving everything over all the exposed soil. In a week, the whole 50 x 100-foot garden will be covered in about 18 inches of hay. There the Ruth Stout garden will sit until mid-April and just cook. On the left, are a couple of things. The black plastic cages will hold my grow bags in which I will plant all those crazy veining squash that would take over my garden. I will soon place cardboard under the cages. It will be late April before they get planted, as I don’t want any frost damage. On the other side of the fence are planted onions and garlic. While both of them would be OK even if it snowed, I have protected all of them with a layer of hay.

My next task besides growing more starts is to create a large sweet potato bed down by my son’s place. I am very lucky and thankful to have two of my sons living here on the farm.

That’s all for this blog. Hopefully you are working on your garden for the spring. If not, why are you even reading this blog?

It is my opinion that there is only one more year left (and it will be a bad one) to get started preparing for the Grand Solar Minimum. There are all kinds of crazy things going on, and not just the virus from China. I suspect that this coming spring will be much like the last growing season or worse. Things in the future will only get worse. The earth’s magnetic field is weakening and we are seeing a huge increase in the intensity of Galactic Cosmic Rays. This is causing an increase in clouds and cooling. The weakening magnetic field of the earth is causing the jet streams to go absolutely crazy. And to finish it all off, the sun’s magnetic fields are going into an opposing arrangement.

So cheers from Central Texas

Now is a good time and it is running out to:
Purchase seeds and start a garden
Take care of your family, friends, and neighbors
Look after the poor and those who have less than you do

The 2020 Garden Part 6 of ?

You could also call this blog starting the starts. As I started a much larger garden this year (50 x 100 ft.) than I did last year, I will be needing many more starts than I am used to growing. Finally, I saw some of my tomato seeds germinate and pop up their little green heads yesterday. Today as I write this it is February 3rd. and I am now looking at what I will seed today. Working with all those tiny seeds has been a challenge.

I was also amazed at how long seeds can last. I found in a storage box here in the house some Okra seed that I have on purpose saved. The okra from this seed was something that I had grown for over 20 years. The seed I found was dated August 2003. My wife soaked some of it for a day in water and then wrapped them in a damp paper towel. All of the seeds (about 7) germinated. So my treasure I saved back in 2003 will again produce food for me this year. I am amazed by how wonderful seeds are every time I poke some in the ground.
The picture of my seeded starts on the left is all sitting on a very long heating mat. The mat is connected to a timer that turns the mat on every thirty minutes and then off for thirty. Once they germinate and put on some true leaves I will pull them off the mat and put under grow lights. I use LED and T5 fluorescent lights for supplemental light.

One caveat about heating mats and that is they will dry out your potting mix rather quickly if you don’t monitor moisture closely.

The first onions I planted are making their way through the hay. There will be a lot more hay added later. Remember, if you purchase onion starts at the big box store and cannot put them in right away, just go out and plant the whole bunch in the garden and keep watered. Then later when you are ready to plant, pull the whole bunch out. I double plant onions much closer than I would normally, then I thin them out and my wife uses them to cook with. If you notice the black plastic crates on the right of the picture, these are for growing Waltham Squash and other vining types. That will keep them out of the garden. I will then use grow bags to grow in. The crates stabilize the grow bags and keep them off the ground. Before I start this I will place cardboard under the crates. This also keeps out weeds and perhaps even ants.

Now for something different! Yes, Microgreens are not exactly Ruth Stout!

The microgreens are also looking good. These will probably be eaten by someone in a restaurant this coming week. Daikon, Triton and Rambow radish make up the twelve trays. If you are looking for really good for you full of vitamins type of food to eat, radish microgreens are it. In studies, Daikon radish microgreens had huge amounts more of good for you nutrients than broccoli. I think it was 40 times more. I eat radish almost daily in my salads.

If you don’t like radish, then there are all sorts of microgreens that you can grow. Here are a few from our shop where we grow indoors. There are probably 8 different microgreens in the picture below. Finnel, Mustards, Carrot, Beets, Swiss Chard, French Parsley and of course radish. As I walk through the shop, I often pull a selection of microgreens and make a mix.

That’s all for this blog. I am still following the Coronavirus closely. There is not much information out there except for those who know nothing. Much like me, anything I write about it is only speculation. I know one thing for sure, if they come out with a vaccination for this, I sure wouldn’t run there to get one. Probably the best thing one can do is quit eating all that crappy fast food, and grow some of your own. I would highly recommend that you put microgreens in your diet.

It’s time as spring is on its way so:

Get your seeds and start a garden
Prepare for the coming Grand Solar Minimum
Look after yourself, friends and family
Take care of those who are not as fortunate as you are.

Cheers from Central Texas

Food you can grow and store

If you have ever grown a garden, you understand that it can be feast and famine. If you have a productive year, you will be eating well from spring to the first frost in the fall. After that, it is back to the grocery store. Unless you can grow during the winter you will again have a food bill for your vegetables.

What started me on this storable food thing from my garden was a Waltham Squash. I had grown some and also purchased a couple at the grocery store because my wife makes a wonderful squash soup. Then I did a little reading on the Waltham Squash and found out that they have very good storage qualities. One of the things I did as a test was to make sure the ones I had purchased were ready for storage. That test was seeing if I could puncture the skin with a fingernail. The two from the store failed the test, but the one I had left outside in the garden in the sun after picking passed. Winter squash like potatoes and sweet potatoes must be condition or heal their outer skin before storage. The Waltham I grew was stored in a box wrapped in paper in a room in our house. That squash was perfectly good seven months later. It looked as good as the day I picked it and the flesh was firm and sweet. Note, when harvesting winter squash, make sure that you leave an inch or two of the stem. Pulling off the stem exposes the internal working of the squash to the outside and may cause rotting.

So what are some things that you can grow, store and eat when its icy and cold outside and your garden is a fond memory?


Dried Beans
Winter Squash
Sweet Potatoes
Dried Corn
Green Tomatoes

There are many more, but I don’t like five mile long blogs, so ill just start with the above.

Dried Beans

Dry beans will be ready for harvest and depending on the cultivar could take from 60 to 120 days after planting. When the plants have matured and the leaves become brown or are falling off, you need to test to see if they are ready to harvest. The pods should be dry and have a withered look and the seeds in the pod should hardly dent using the fingernail test. If the seedpods have withered but are still moist, pick them and then spread them out in a warm location to dry completely. Fully dry pods will split open to reveal the dried beans. Dry beans can be shelled by threshing in a sack or by hand.

There are many types of dry or shell beans that you can grow.
Below is a short list.

Kidney beans
Black Bean
Navy beans
Beans that are Red, purple, spotted and so on
White shell beans
Great White Northern

Suggestion: visit my two recommended seed providers here and browse the many types of shell beans than can be grown.

Dried shelled beans can be stored in a cool, dry place from 12 months to many years. After time, dried beans get harder to cook quickly. Beans should be placed in water overnight and then cooked. You can store your beans in a airtight jar.

Winter Squash
From the internet:
Winter squash can be harvested whenever the fruits have turned a deep, solid color and the rind is hard. Harvest the main part of the crop in September or October, before heavy frosts hit your area. Cut squash from the vines carefully, leaving two inches of stem attached if possible.

Once harvested make sure that you cure your winter squash by letting it outside in a warm place. Once dried, do the fingernail test (on some) to make sure they are ready for storage. Some winter squash store better than others (see below).

Johnny’s Seeds does a better job of describing how to store winter squash then I ever could. Click here for their winter squash page. Note: look on the left side of their page, there you will find all kinds of info in their VEGETABLE LIBRARY.

There are amazing amounts of how to store vegetables from your garden on the internet. Below are PDFs on winter squash you can download or view:

From Cornell Here and OSU Here and USU Here.

Potatoes and Sweet Potatoes

Potatoes and sweet potatoes are much alike, but mostly started differently. Well that is how I do it. Potatoes are started from seed potatoes and sweet potatoes from slips.

How to Grow Sweet Potatoes From Slips

Sweet potatoes are grown from cuttings called slips. Slips are the leafy growth on the sweet potato on the left on the above graphic. Glowing slips can be fun especially for kids. If you’ve never grown sweet potatoes slips before now, its time to try. You can get started by purchasing some sweet potatoes from the grocery store. Many people Place about 1/4 of the end of the sweet potato in a small glass jar which is held up with tooth picks. You can grow many slips just from one sweet potato. Once they develop leafs and are about 7 inches or so high, clip the slip from the sweet potato and place in a glass jar of water. Eventually the slip will develop roots. You can then plant the slip in your garden. Most good garden centers will have slips for sale in the spring, but that is not as fun as growing you own.

Potatoes are grown from seed potato. See the above graphic. The seed potato in the graphic has developed eyes which are on the right and left of the potato. Usually seed potatoes are cut into pieces each having a couple of eyes. Note, your seed potatoes do need need to be sprouted as above but it is better that the potato has started the process. I wrap my seed potatoes in a paper sack or wrapped in paper and out of the light. Just make sure each cut piece has a couple of eyes before planting. After cutting up into pieces, let them set out in the air and heal for about a week. See how to plant both of these in a Ruth Stout garden in one of my previous blogs Here.

Storing potatoes and sweet potatoes.

My wife tells a story of when she was a small child on her dad’s farm. It was her job to go out in the shed where the potatoes and onions were stored and bring some to her mother to cook. She has bad memories of picking up a spoiled potato and onion and getting the stinky mess all over her hand. Potatoes can be kept in storage until needed for next years crop. Her potatoes were stored in a shed and were placed on top of dry sand. They lasted all winter (in Central Texas) and there were enough left for next years planting. You can store both these potatoes in a cool dry place. Sweet potatoes must be cured for about 10 days. Never wash them unless you are going to eat them. When harvesting eat the ones that you have cut or damaged right away. Note: The Russet potato is best for storage because of it’s thick skin. All those fancy ones not so much.

Here from UOA is a PDF on growing Sweet Potatoes
Here from Texas A&M is a PDF on growing potatoes. (not Ruth Stout though!)

Dried Corn

I personally like Dent Corn for dry storage. Dent corn or feed corn is not only yellow but can be red, blue and other colors. This corn has a real down to earth taste and dries into something you can make amazing cornbread with. But what you grow and dry is up to you. It is getting hard not to get GMO corn seed anymore and there was just released a GMO sweet corn. Bring on the weed killer!. You can be almost be absolutely sure when you eat any product that uses corn, it would have been made with a GMO product. Corn grows best in air temperatures from 60° to 95°F. Corn can take from 60 to 100 days to reach harvest depending upon variety and the amount of heat during the growing season. Here is your chance to grow non GMO corn right in your home garden. Just be careful when purchasing cord seed that it is not GMO. After the corn is ready to be harvested, probably the best way to store dried corn is in the corn shucks.

My wife tells me that her fathers corn was stored in their barn. The corn was still in the shuck and was really dry before it was brought in from the field and stored. Her job was to shell corn with a hand powered sheller. The corn was used for the animals and some of the shelled corn was taken into town and ground up into cornmeal. The miller got some of the cornmeal for his services. You can do the same with your own hand mill. Shelled corn can also be stored in jars and in a dry place in sacks if you wish. Make sure to keep some back so you can plant next year.

Note: I have made cornmeal from pop corn. Do not use sweet corn. Sweet corn is for eating and cooking. Common field corn and pop corn makes the best cornmeal. Field corn can be cooked and eaten when it’s sugar content has peaked. I personally like the taste.

Green Tomatoes
OK, you watch the weather and its getting cold as the Grand Solar Minimum is getting ready to dump some very cold freezing climate right over your garden and on your head. As you look out the window, there must be thirty-five pounds or more of green tomatoes still on the vine. Quickly you rush out and pick all thirty-five pounds of the green tomatoes. Once in the house, you place them all in cardboard boxes and place them by your large patio window. Then in the next two months you will gradually eat those tomatoes as they redden. Tomatoes saved! Or you wife will cook her famous fried green tomatoes for dinner that night.

Well that is all for this blog. There are many more storage vegetables like carrots, cabbage and other root veggies like artichokes that can be stored.

If you are worried about food security and the high prices at the grocery store, you might just start thinking about growing your own garden. As I like to say, please do not be or remain a food slave. As the Grand Solar Minimum continues to destroy global crops and as 64 million Chinese people are trapped in their cities with food running out and the Coronavirus outbreak killing thousands what would you do? I am not a doom and gloom type of person, but I do love and want to protect my family. Having my own garden is a no brainier.

My recommendations are to:
Get your seeds and start a garden.
Look after your family, friends and neighbors.
Take care of the poor and those who have less than you.

Cosmic Rays and the Earths Magnetic field

Things are getting interesting and perhaps more dangerous. Dangerous to humans and things like DNA and dangerous in the geophysical relm like increased cloud cover. As you can see from the recent balloon flights, the intensity of the Galactic Cosmic Rays has increased even more. You can look at this graph at the following URL. Note how high the recent flights and readings are.

The balloon flights are sponsored by and the students of Earth to Sky Calculus almost weekly since March 2015. So there has been a 22% increase from 2015 until the present (December 2019) Picture below is from one of the balloon flights

HEY! note the earth is not flat!

On the left is my probably not so well done graph of the increase in intensity over time and it doesn’t look like it will get any weaker and you can’t blame it on global warming or something crazy as a climate emergency caused by man.

There is certainly something going on to cause the decreases. But sunspots are not the cause but are the smoking gun that is a dead give away. It’s the SUN. The sun is gradually going into an inactive period. This was posted on January 24th. and the sun did break another cumulative record for minimum sunspots in 2019.

But there is something else going on causing all those Cosmic Rays to increase and it’s happening right here on our planet. What is happening is that the earth’s magnetic field is moving and lately moving really fast. As you can see from the graphic, the earth’s south magnetic field is moving out of Canada and moving in the direction of Russia. So indeed, it does look like the magnetic fields of the earth are headed for a polarity reversal. When this happens, now only do the fields move, but they also weaken. From measurements today, they have weakened by 20% and are getting weaker. The earth’s magnetic field and the weakening sun allow more Cosmic Rays to penetrate the upper atmosphere of the earth.

So the increase in Cosmic Rays can be attributed to two things. First the sun is getting weaker and the earth’s magnetic fields are too. These decreases are cumulative in their effect. The effect is an increase in clouds and an increase in the Albedo Effect.

As you can see from the chart, snow and cumulus clouds reflects the sun’s energy back into space more than other things like water which is at the bottom of the chart. So what does all this have to do with global cooling? Obviously this is a cumulative thing. More clouds and more cooling. More cooling and more snow. More snow and more increases in the Albedo Effect.

As you can see, they started building SUVs right after the Maunder Minimum (1700) and has caused all the warming to date! Actually, Carbon 14 ratios point to the sun. We are coming to an end of that period and the earth will and is starting to cool. You can listen to Rolf Witzsche’s new YouTube post at this URL The video talks about the above graphic and what caused global warming and the fact that it is ending. As I have stated in other blogs, this 300 year period was a great blessing, at least for those who were not killing each other in wars. Just like the curve upward, we became better and better at killing as the population increased and we developed new technology some of it really bad.

I am a follower of Rolf Witzsche who has many and I mean many very good YouTube video’s on climate and what He thinks is a coming icy cooling period that will cull a large part of the global population unless something is not done. I must agree, that is what it looks like, but:
THE TERM ICE AGE IS TABOO and should never be spoken about. It is for that above reason you will hear little on the subject. And mostly from a crazy old guy on this blog and wonderful and amazing people like Rolf.

There may be one more reason that we are seeing an increase in Cosmic Rays and this is what Rolf talks about.

This is a decrease in the sun’s output from reduced plasma stream energy that powers the sun.

So to sum sun it up

  1. The Sun’s magnetic fields are going in and out of phase causing reduced SI.
  2. Decreases in the sun’s output from reduced plasma stream energy that powers the sun.
  3. The wandering and decreasing of the earth’s magnetic fields.

In Item 2 there is a hidden thing that is probably happening. This is the Ice Age TABOO thing. This taboo is not spoken about and only in whispers by a very few. Please note that gravity sucks. Very true, but magnetic fields suck much more. Once you realize that our sun is a plasma and electrical sun, then you can fully understand the cycles in the Carbon 14 ratios in the above graph. All the ups and downs are caused by variations in the sun. These variations are caused by electrical, magnetic and plasma energy that feeds the sun. It is that simple and requires no atomic power plant in the center of the sun which is really a child’s story. Remember that ice core data shows that the earth is an ice planet 85% of the time.

Perhaps we need to prepare? If you see any please let me know.

Build your own Greenhouse

Lost Creek Greenhouse Systems
245 C.R. 2651
Mineola, TX. 75773
There excellent website is at this URL
Note: Some of the graphics on this page are (C) Lost Creek Greenhouse Systems. Lost Creek has everything you would need to build your own green house. I suggest that you visit them.

What is coming down the road will not be fun and if you are going to grow your own food during the Grand Solar Minimum, you are going to need many different ways of growing. A greenhouse is just one of many ways which we will try to cover in this Blog.

So why am I pushing greenhouses in this blog? The main reason is that soon, only those who posses some form of protection for their crops will be successful at doing so. I have used a greenhouse to grow everything from Tomatoes to microgreens for the last 12 years and have never had a failure except for being blow away by tornado winds. That happened to my large 30 by 90 foot greenhouse. My smaller one which I built with the bender from Lost Creek survived just fine. I could list all types of advantages of using a greenhouse. Here are just a few:

  • Season Extension – grow earlier and later into the spring and fall.
  • Protection from wind, rain and snow.
  • Protection from birds and some insects.
  • A controlled environment.
  • Fewer weeds.
  • Great for growing starts that would be harmed by frost and cold weather.

Below is a picture of a hoop bender mounted on plywood. I mounted mine on plywood and put it in the back of my truck to hold it. That worked great.

Having your own greenhouse will give you a jump on getting plants producing at the optimum times available. Because of the Grand Solar Minimum, we should see our growing seasons compressed. Getting almost full grown starts out in say your Ruth Stout garden will quickly produce food. You can add a month to your growing season that way.

TIP: with the proper application of plastic, hay and other materials, it is possible to grow greens in very cold temperatures in a green house. Brassicas (cabbage family) especially do well.

Note: I get no compensation for featuring the benders. I was actually thinking about you and that you might need to survive the Grand Solar Minimum. Visit the website if for nothing else to learn a thing or two. The owners are wonderful people. Below are some examples of home brew greenhouses.

The 2020 Garden Part 4 of ?

Prepping my Ruth Stout Garden

Note the above picture is not my garden. Well you must start some place. My new place is a 50 x 100 foot plot. I can see it from my dinner table and every time I sit down there I am reminded of all the work I have to do. Below is some of my hunter gathering results. This is just a start as I will need many more to fill up the garden. Red and white potatoes. Going back later for Yukon Gold.

If you get your seed potatoes, you need to wrap in paper and store in a dark place. I need to order some of those blue potatoes soon as I tried some last fall from the store and they were great tasting. We are still eating potatoes from our last July harvest. Potatoes make a great prep vegetable (tuber). Just keep some for seed next year. As I have stated in a previous Blog, you can’t live on lettuce. You will need some high energy things like potatoes and a bit of meat. Next on my list is sweet potatoes which I will grow my slips with. I have my eye on some Korean purple ones that my wife cooked last week and were super sweet. Heading to the Asian market for them. Unless you want specialty sweet potatoes, the ones from the grocery store work well for slips. 

Note on Asian seeds. There is a new world of Asian seeds at Kitazawa seeds. I get nothing for the plug. These are wonderful people and seeds. Go this URL to take a look. I have ordered from them for many years. Read about their history. Tell them I sent you.

Some people want a picture of what grumpy grandpa looks like, so here is a really grumpy picture of me. If you blow it up and put in your garden, it just might chase off bugs and other things? The door mat at my house reads: “Here lives one nice and one grumpy person.” Actually I am a marshmallow, but that’s a lie put out by my wife.

Below are the items I mix for mulch in my Ruth Stout garden. I use coffee grounds but never mix them. Coffee grounds are always placed on top of the mulch. From left to right: Rotted leafs, horse manure with some hay and hay for the final cover. While not shown, chicken manure and coffee grounds are put on last.

I have three large compost piles made from shipping pallets. Any things that the horses, chickens, ducks, guineas, cats, dogs, pigs or I won’t eat goes into the compost heap. Soon the animal list will contain rabbits! Please note that I am on the top of the food chain, even if listed last!

I will be starting my tomato starts this weekend. I would like about 150, so I had better get started. I make up a mix of some horse compost mixed with mostly peat moss to plant them in. I use bottom heat to encourage germination and growth. If it’s cold or cool they will just sit there looking at you if you don’t have some heat. Hey stupid “we are cold” I expect they will be thinking. I am hoping to get the tomato starts up to a foot tall for planting in the spring.  

Here are some of the tomatoes I will be starting but not all of them. Hmm where are my yellow pear tomato seed?

Mountain Princess, Beefsteak, Large Red Cherry (my favorite), Roma, Cherokee Purple, Red Siberian, Jet Star and Arkansas Traveler. For salsa of course Tomatillo – Toma-Verde. 

We eat a bunch of Tex-Mex her at the farm. Mexican food and Mexican culture makes up why Texas is a great place to live.  Actually, the Central Texas area is one great melting pot of civilization. It’s amazing at all the different foods available at restaurants and grocery stores here.  

And while at the store today I purchases the following for George who owns the farm along with a huge rooster. George is also security. No one comes on the farm with out running through George’s security system (four and two legged animals). George lives outside and actually hates coming into the house. We don’t pamper him and he likes that. I would suggest that everyone has a dog like George.  

But back to the garden. The following picture is what a prepped Ruth Stout garden floor looks like before placing down hay. This is my version so yours might be different. 

 Here is a tip on planting onion starts. If you just let them set around, they will dry out and will die or you will have poor results. Right after you purchase them, just take the whole bunch out to your garden and plant them into damp soil, If you wait a week or more, they will continue to grow roots. Picture below.

That’s it for this blog. I will document my starts and document the results as time goes on. It’s time to get started on a garden. What is coming our way will not be fun and games. Actually your survival may depend on what you do now. Think not? Well just wait a couple of years and find out. Then you wont be one of the 1 out of 10 who may not make it through the Grand Solar Minimum and many other things that you can’t do any thing about but prepare. While these gardening blogs may have a bit of humor in them, what I am telling and writing about is deadly serious. If you don’t think that way, I would like to suggest that you close out this blog and never come back. Then open your refrigerator, microwave some pizza and have a beer or two. Then be happy and don’t worry as all will be fine.

Now is the time to: Prepare
Get some seeds and start a garden
Look after your family, friends and neighbors
Take care of the poor who have less than you do

Cheers and best of everything from Central Texas

The 2020 Garden Part 3 of ?

2020 – the year of the Horse here on the farm.

What animal was used for transportation, used to heat greenhouses and compost for growing vegetables in France many years ago? If you said the horse, you would be correct. The decaying manure from horses was used for heat and of course as a mulch. The English across the channel called it the French Method. Using horse manure helped feed the whole city of Paris, and the surplus was shipped into England. Here on the farm I am continuing this method. Must be in the DNA? Or perhaps it’s my German ancestors who ran from high taxes in Germany. Sound familiar? Taxes were so high that farmers in Germany could not even support themselves. Seems that is starting here in the US.

If you are interested in the “French Method” then take a look at this URL. Eliot Coleman is one of my heroes. Clip from the website below:

This system fed Paris all year round with the widest variety of both in-season and out-of-season fruits and vegetables. Hotbeds heated with decomposing horse manure and covered with glass frames allowed the growers to defy the cold and produce fresh salads in January and early cucumbers and melons in May and June. The system was sustainable. Both the heat for winter production of vegetables in hotbeds and the amendments to maintain the fertility of the soil were by-products of composting another by-product—the horse manure mixed with straw that came from the city stables. This recycling of the “transportation wastes” of the day was so successful and so extensive that the soil increased in fertility from year to year despite the high level of production.

The graphic below is a four week supply of horse manure mixed with hay from the horse farm across the street. The tractor is my pooper scooper! The tractor was used in Japan many years ago and then brought into the US and refurbished. There are no electronics or computer in this one. Gets amazing gas mileage but does not like cold weather when starting. But watch out, the carbon footprint is really a large one and probably produces a huge volume of CO2 which my garden eats as food. Is this a symbiotic relationship? Come to think about it, when I talk to my veggie plants I produce CO2 as well. I guess I am one of those nasty human that are warming the planet. Do you talk to your plants? Pepper plants seem to really respond well to my voice, especially the hot ones. Must be my grumpy personality!

My seeds are all in. I probably have around 250 types of seed in the box below. This took me a year to choose and order. If you don’t have your seeds in now this is the time to order.

Many of them I plan to put in sealed plastic bags and then into glass canning jars and then store in a 5 gallon bucket in my freezer. If you do this, make sure the seeds and everything they are stored in is dry. Hopefully doing this and with seed saving I will never have to purchase any seeds again. You can do the Same. Again I stress that you need to purchase a paper back book on seed saving.

Here is a good idea on saving some money

A good idea is to form a large group and buy bulk then separate them out. That way you can get away from the packet sizes which are expensive but give you few seeds.


The picture on the left is a 1/2 pound sack of Danvers 126 carrot seeds. The cost for the bag was $13.20. A small packed of seeds at your big box store would be $2.00 or more for a small packet. I suspect the 1/2 pound would make 200 or more seed packets.

Another example: 1/2 pound of Late Flat Dutch Cabbage seeds – $9.90.

The 2020 Garden Part 2 of ?

Welcome to the blog on Ruth Stout gardening. What I like about this type of gardening is that is really all about common sense. Think about it, what is common to any garden ever grown on the planet earth?

It’s a medium to grow in and take nutrients from and water and the sun. Of course you will need seeds, but hopefully that is a no brainier. How it looks, how you did it and how wonderful it did, really has no bearing on the above three groups of things. Soil and nutrients, the sun and water and seeds. Any thing else is just a waste of time if you supply all the above.

I planted out my first Ruth Stout garden in only 6 months after I had started it. Of course, it’s what you start with is what is important. Soil / mulch to grow in and that deep topping of hay. If your soil and mulch is healthy with all the things plants like, and if you add a little of water, then you will probably be successful. Then there is the hay that keeps down the weeds.

About my farm and the soil.

You could have easily call the farm a rock garden. Before I knew better I purchased a tractor and plowed the soil. Much to our dismay, we ran into rocks as big as my head. I guess you could have called me a rock head? While there were rocks, the actual soil was amazing. Almost any thing I planted grew very well. It took over two years to get all of the large rocks out of that garden. But that was just the start of things. Initially where the garden ended up was one huge weed pile with some of the best weeds know to man and others I had never seen. Stirring up the soil was just an invitation for them to prosper. I am sure many of the weed seeds had been just waiting for me to plow them up ten years before. 

Even worse our neighbor had grass that clumped and produced what I am sure was billions of seeds every year and they all blew into the garden. After three years of this I gave up. 

The weeds had kicked my rear and I had lost the battle. 

If I was younger and perhaps a bit more stupid, I probably would have fought them for five more years! 

My suggestion is to never do what I had done. The answer is to NEVER disturb the soil and only add to what is there (create new soil). After that is in place, never dig you new soil up as well. It will just not be necessary as your new soil build will not need cultivating with a plow or shovel or most anything else except for the actual planting. That is called no-dig gardening and that describes what a Ruth Stout garden is all about. 

How to start a Ruth Stout Garden

OK, you wont need a PHD to get this going. No college degree is required, and you don’t need to be a NASA Rocket Scientist. In-fact having any of what I just listed may hold you back. There is no need to do computer modeling or any thing that requires scientific thinking to get started. The following is all that is needed:

  1. Some land
  2. Mulch and green matter
  3. Brown paper boxes
  4. Hay 

Some Land

My first garden started with a plot of land that was 50 by 100 foot. The plot had never been grown on and it had a really good collection of native grass and weeds. It even flooded at times during some heavy rains. 80 % of the plot had good light most of the day. I surrounded the plot with cheap plastic fencing and drove in the ground fence posts. I needed this because of some of the farm animals would really love some of my vegetables. They had been born as taste test animals and if you let them would take a test bite of everything in my garden. I used a piece of hog wire for the gate of the plot. 

Mulch and green matter

This was a continuing thing. I amassed a huge collection of leafs, hay mixed with horse manure and all the chicken manure I could get my hands on. Most anything that was organic was dumped into a really large pile. I actually drove through neighborhoods and picked up all the grass cuttings and leafs the people had set out for the dump. One thing I would suggest is that you do not use cow manure. The reason is that the quality usually is not as good as the horse type and will have many more weed seeds. This is directly related to what the horse and cows are eating. Most horses are fed a higher quality feed than cows which will eat most any type of fodder.  Not so much when it comes to horses. I have two horses, and my neighbor across the street keeps and feeds many horses. I am lucky to get a huge load of manure mixed with high quality hay every two weeks. Most places that keep horses will be glad to give you all the manure mixed with hay. 

ONE Caveat – Never, and I mean never use horse manure mixed with wood shavings. Wood shavings could be caustic and will poison you and your plants. Many people who keep horses use wood shavings. Make sure you don’t. (I lost 350 tomato plants because of this.) Experience is a hard teacher.

Brown paper boxes

While Ruth Stout never talked about brown paper (cardboard) I use it as a weed guard between the exposed soil and my new soil building mulch and green matter. I go dumpster diving for all the boxes that are thrown away. Usually I drive around the back and find some and then ask the store if it’s OK and some time I don’t ask. In about six months the paper will almost have decomposed. I had the police check me out once and ask me what I was doing in the back of a store. He laughed when he found out what I was doing.


If you can get your hands on some bad hay, then you are in luck. I had problems with this and had to purchase mine. At the time it was rather expensive. You can also use tree leafs as a replacement for the hay or as a mixture which I did as well. The hay is the reason why a Ruth Stout garden works so well. You can use straw, but hay probably has more micro nutrients than straw. I am not sure of this, and straw is not generally available here in Central Texas.

Putting it all together:

Note that I have 1 1/2 ft of hay on top. You could and can use less, but I was amazed how fast my hay composted. As far as the mulch, use as much as possible. After the mulch is laid down, water it really well and then place the hay on top. I probably put in around 6 inches of mulch or more. After layering, let the garden rest for about six months. The length depends on how composted your green matter is. After a period of time you will be amazed what has happened to the compost under they hay. It will become your new soil and will breakdown quickly into something a vegetable plant would like to live in.

Keep adding hay as needed and as often as you can. I also composted coffee grounds in my compost. I can get hundreds of pounds of free coffee grounds locally and if you live around or in a large town, so can you.. After composting they add nitrogen to your garden. You must compost the coffee grounds first. Don’t mix them directly in with your mulch. 

How to plant a Ruth Stout garden. 

 Again not Rocket Science. As you probably know there are two ways of planting a garden. One is planting seed directly, and the other is using starts. Some seed like carrots cannot be planted as starts and are usually planted as seed.

Planting seed

Pull back the hay from the area where you will plant seed. Plant the seed just like you would do in any garden which would be directly in and covered by soil. After planting and watering, pull up the hay as close to the seeds but never on top of them. Wait until they germinate and get large enough to apply hay around the started seed plant.

Planting Starts

Pull back the hay from the area you want to plant starts. I use an electric drill and a small garden drill to make holes for my starts. Plant at the proper depth and then water all your starts very well. After watering pull the hay around your starts.  The drill makes planting starts very easy. 

Planting potatoes and sweet potatoes.

Potatoes usually use seed potatoes to start and most sweet potatoes use slips. In a Ruth Stout garden, planting potatoes is easy. Just make sure you have plenty of mulch to plant on. Note I said on. Pull back the hay from the mulch where you want to plant your seed potatoes. Make sure to water the mulch before you work with your seed potatoes. Place the seed potatoes about a foot apart on top of the thick layer of compost. Then completely cover the seed potatoes with hay. Try for a foot of hay. As the season moves on, make sure to water your seed potatoes and soon they will pop through the hay. Add more hay if needed. Just make sure the new popped up potatoes are well covered and lightly watered. Mostly deep watering is not needed. In a couple of months you can dig you hand into the hay and harvest small potatoes. We harvest everything in June or July here in Central Texas.

Sweet Potatoes are a bit different. Again you will need a good thick layer of mulch and hay. If you don’t know what a sweet potatoes slip is, then here is a good opportunity to order or grow your own. When your slips are ready and heavy with roots, make sure your bed is watered really well. Then with a one inch stick, punch a hole in the compost that the slip will be inserted in. Make sure the punched hole is as deep as possible in the mulch and hay. After inserting the slips, water lightly again. Soon you will see the slips start to cover the whole bed and make vines every place in and around the garden bed. Sweet Potato leafs can be eaten. Once the vines are completed their life cycle as in looking dead,it is time to harvest. Be careful when harvesting the potatoes and sweet potatoes with a shovel or something sharp as you can cut them. Both the potatoes and sweet potatoes need to be left outside on a tarp to dry off for at least one warm sunny day. A small layer of soil can be left on both of them. Both can be kept until next year to grow again, or stored in a cool dry place and eaten all the fall or winter. My wife keeps some potatoes in the refrigerator. Potatoes and sweet potatoes can be grown in containers. Note: You will not need as much hay with the sweet potatoes. 6 inches at most or less. Weeds will not have a chance surviving in a sweet potato bed because the sweet potato leafs will completely cover the bed. More on containers later. 

Things to talk about.

Weeds. There is no garden in the world that is weed free. Some weeds must be pulled, especially some of the more larger ones. If you are having some weed problems, just add more hay. If you are loosing hay into your compost, just add more hay. At the end of the year most of your hay will have killed off many of your weeds and become composted. To reestablish your garden, just add more mulch and more hay. Over the years you will be amazed how deep your garden will become and how weed free it will be. It will be easier and easier as you add compost and hay. All that hard work at first will pay off later. In Her book, Ruth actually didn’t even add more mulch, but just more hay.

More to come

 As the spring growing season starts, I will be adding more on my garden and the results. Also in the works are thoughts on how we will grow in our garden next fall and winter. We are looking at adding low tunnels to the garden. The hoops would be permanent and we would just add the plastic cover in the fall each year. This I am really looking forward to.

The 2020 Garden Part 1 of ?

2020 is the year for a garden. Mini-ones, small ones, big ones and really big ones. Take a look where you are (physically as in where you live and lay your head at night) and then plan out your garden.

Don’t be a food slave!

The above graphic is a tribute to Ruth Stout and her gardening practices 

We Live in interesting times. If you have not noticed it is becoming more and more expensive just to eat and feed a family. That is the reason that I started this blog in the first place. Its all about surviving the Grand Solar Minimum. In coming blogs along with what is happening climate wise,I will be covering the following:

  • How to start a Ruth Stout garden bed.
  • Many ways of growing in containers.
  • How to grow in your home.
  • Growing food in your patio or open area in an apartment.
  • Seeds and where to get them.
  • Starting vegetable plants.
  • Growing potatoes and sweet potatoes.
  • Growing microgreens.
  • Simple hydroponic growing systems.
  • Ideas on having a community garden.
  • Long term storage foods.
  • Many more ideas and techniques on food and feeding a family.

The blog author is a microgreen grower (commercial grower) but I live on a farm, and we do have a community garden. Ya notice that word community? I am 76 years old, and I need a community. So will you eventually, and guess what, it will probably be too late at that point. Now is the time to start and don’t wait for EVENTUALLY. Eventually is usually a bad mother!


If you are really desperate for a place to grow, form a small community. Then find some people that are perhaps too old to actually get out there and work in a garden. Offer to grow on their property and then share what you produce with them for the use of their land. This option could also be on land that is not used. Find some property that belongs to the city or county that has available water and approach them. Find some land that you can pay the taxes on and own and use.  

Another Idea if you have no land:

Form a community. Find some land out in the country that has water. Rent say an acre or less. Make sure that the contract to rent the land is for 5 or more years. Put money in an account or cash to pay for a couple years of rent. You and your community are on your way. Just play nice with the members and make sure everyone understands their obligations. Have an “Oh Crap” this is too hard option and look for a replacement. Keep the money they may have invested. 

So what is on my mind?

Well that one brain cell is being overwhelmed by thoughts of this coming spring and the community garden we are building. Yes it’s a work in progress as it will not just magically popup out there in the spring. I have most of my seeds in hand or are on order. The wonderful trees around here gave up their nutrient filled gift by shedding all their leafs on the ground. It’s a blessing, as all we have to do is collect them which we are in the process of doing. We rake up the leafs onto a plastic tarp and then pull then into a large pile in the garden. The horses and chickens are doing their part with the poop side of things. My neighbor brings a large trailer of horse poop and hay every two weeks. There is no end in sight of this resource. 

I can tell you one thing, and that is you will never need commercial fertilizer if you compost what I have just mentioned above.  

This year my grand children are part of the growing. It will be their responsibility to make a list of what we will grow, and how we will start as in seeds directly planted or if we will need to grow starts. Also how deep and how close. They will then diagram where we will plant in the garden. Then it will be on to starting our starts. 

How can anyone ever know how to grow food if they were not taught? This applies to adults as well. I suspect that many of our young people and children have NO idea how to grow food, as it all came from the grocery store. If you think about it, if you don’t grow your own, you are a slave to the grocery stores and big corporations that really don’t have your interest at heart. 

They like the fact that you are a food slave.

Its not too late to get started even if its a very small choice. There are hundreds of ways to start a garden and grow food. Here is my recommendation on how to do it:

Get some seed and plants AND JUST START. There are so many things to grow. You can follow my many coming blogs on the subject.My next blog will be on starting a Ruth Stout garden and what you can do until you are ready to plant in it now and in the spring.

For your homework:

Go to YouTube and search for Ruth Stout garden and watch a few. Use the internet now while you can to educate yourself and many things that can be used to become self sustaining. As always, it’s a choice and yes there is probably beer and pizza in the refrigerator, so be happy and don’t worry?

Radio Equipment Part 1

Education on antennas

Antennas are devices used to launch radio waves. When we say launch, what we mean is that electrical energy is radiated as electromagnetic waves.

  • Electromagnetic waves can move and create their own medium (field) to travel through.
  • Once created, they do not need any external power source to travel through space.

Animation of a half-wave dipole antenna transmitting
radio waves, showing the electric field lines. The dipole, antenna in the center, consists of two vertical metal rods with an alternating current at its resonant frequency applied at its center from a radio transmitter (not shown) The voltage alternately charges the two ends of the antenna positive (+) and negative (−). Standing waves of current flow up and down the rods. Standing waves can reflect power back into the transmitter which is not a good idea, especially if the transmitter final amplifier is all transistors.

Radio waves are created using an oscillator and usually fed into an amplifier. The amplifier is connected to the antenna via some sort of feed line. These oscillations are then connected to an antenna. See below.


Antennas can be used to transmit or receive radio waves. When the electromagnetic radio waves strike the receiver antenna, it creates a current that can be detected by the receiver. This current can then be rectified to remove the audio information added to the radio waves with a modulator. This rectified or detected modulation can then be fed into an audio amplifier and speaker.


Antennas have a resonant frequency as well. The one thing that determines the resonant frequency is the length.


If a load is connected across the feed Line, current will flow in the load. If the radio wave striking the antenna is not at the resonant frequency of the antenna, current will flow, but at a much reduced level.

Wave Length

Before we get started, you need to understand some terms. These are full, half and quarter wave. When talking about antennas and waves, we are talking about the length of the antenna element as compared to the length of radio wave (wave Length) that will be launched from it.


Radio waves lengths are measured in meters. A 10 meter wave would have a length of 98.43 feet. Most HTs (handy talkies) use a 1/4 wave antenna which are not very efficient.

Cell Tower Antenna

The cell antenna shown is a vertically stacked dipoles which are spaced roughly a wavelength apart, and about a quarter wavelength in front of a metallic back-plane.
Stacking the dipoles adds gain to the system. See below.


Other Types of antennas

There are a huge number of antenna types. One thing that is common in all these types is that they all have a driven element. The driven element is what the feed line (for connecting RF energy) is attached to.




Collecting radio Waves (focusing) or how to add gain to your antenna.

If you just put up a ¼ wave length antenna in the air, you would have to depend on the transmitter to put a large signal into the antenna. If you were listening and sending signals to a satellite orbiting Mars or some distance planet, you will need a high gain antenna to receive the very weak radio waves. A large reflector as shown in the graphic would do that. The reflector essentially focuses the radio waves that it collects. The focus point is at the small low gain antenna at its focal point.


Adding Gain

You could write many books on adding gain to an antenna system. Because radio waves go all over the place, a considerable amount of the power is wasted radiation. If you want to focus this energy in a controlled direction, you will need to add elements to the antenna. The graphic below shows a 5 element yagi antenna. A typical Yagi array consists of a Driven element, a Reflector and one or more Directors.  The number of directors can be increased to achieve a narrower beam and higher relative gain. The reflector does just what it is named, it reflects radio waves.


The driven element

The driven element is attached to the feed line. The configuration will determine the impedance of the antenna. The folded dipole has a 300 ohm impedance while the vertical antenna is 50 ohms.


Band Width

One of the problems with antennas is that they have a very small bandwidth. Once the input frequency is moved off the center frequency of the antenna, the SWR increases, and the gain decreases. A solution to this is the following types of antennas.


A log-periodic antenna (LP), also known as a log-periodic array or log-periodic aerial, is a multi-element, directional, antenna designed to operate over a wide band of frequencies. The most common form of log-periodic antenna is the log-periodic dipole array or LPDA, The LPDA consists of a number of half-wave dipole driven elements of gradually increasing length, each consisting of a pair of metal rods. The dipoles are mounted close together in a line, connected in parallel to the feed line with alternating phase. Electrically, it simulates a series of two or three-element Yagi antennas connected together, each set tuned to a different frequency. Above from Wikimedia Commons.

Feed Line

There are many types of feed lines with multiple impedance ranges.
The most common are the coaxial types and the twin lead as shown below.
