Welcome, visitors!

For those of you visiting for the first time via my article over at Lew Rockwell's, thank you for stopping in - I hope you'll stick around.

A great place to start is with the survival plant profiles. Beyond that, this is a daily site (well, weekdaily, as in I don't always post on the weekends) with a good community of knowledgeable gardeners, experimenters, survivalists, hobbyists and amateurs.

If you've got a question, ask it in the comments - if you've got a great gardening link to share, share it. If you have your own gardening/preparedness/homesteading site, let me know and I'll link to you in my sidebar.

We're all in this journey together.

And now, for something not-quite-completely different, here's a video I just did showing some of this year's gardens - check it out:



We're going to have a lot of Seminole pumpkins. Last year six plants provided 200lbs. This year I planted at least 30-40 plants. If the math works out right, well, it'll be incredible. This is part of my tropical pumpkin breeding experiment so in order to cut down on inbreeding depression I need to plant at least 25 individuals. I included large tropical pumpkins, calabazas, Seminole pumpkin and tan cheese types. Lord willing, we'll eventually end up (in a few years) with a large-fruited fine-fleshed variety with the flavor of a great Seminole pumpkin and the size of a massive calabaza.

Support this site: shop on Amazon using this link. It doesn't cost you a penny and it helps pay for my hosting!

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour of your gardens. We planted a mess of Seminole pumpkins last year but haven't planted any this year... any chance it is not to late? Once again , thanks for the videos... we don't have Netflix so this is the next best thing!

You bet.

I'd give planting them a try and see what happens. All you lose are a few seeds and a little time.
