    What is this about ….*Senate Bill 510*…?
    Is it true that the senate is going to try to make Home Grown foods and permaculture illegal?
    Do you know anything about this?

    Pole beans vs. bush beans?

    What happens to spent nuclear fuel rods, stored thorughout America, when the grid goes down? They are cooled, using electricity.

  4. GreenLearning says:

    Good Good info, I will be adding more beans and peas! So, how many square feet of garden do you think it take to feed one person 100%?

  5. ReadyPrepper says:

    Potatoes are my main crop. No other crop has a better storage capability and 1 sprouting spud can produce over 2 pounds of spuds. They grow underground and can be left there over the winter and harvested as needed…just like carrots. They do not require much nitrogen. 5-10-10 or 8-16-16 fertilizer goes a long way with spuds. I grow them in buckets, bags, and in the ground. If there is one crop that can keep you alive It’s the potato. Your seed is the potato.

    Excellent video!! Potatoes, carrots, turnips, beans, onions, etc. all low profile crops that can be hidden well. I always advise to split up the garden, here and there.

    Potatoes can always be distilled for fuel if need be.

    for good soil you just need shit loads of poo and lots of worms worm are great they amke tunnels for the plant roots and water and make the soil that much better thanks 5 stars

  8. Mongodelight says:

    just plant potatos and beans. The rest is available in your local forest.

  9. CorparationMedia says:

    Yes, but the nutritional value of both are frankly horrible. Protein..yes..iron..maybe….not enough to function day by day.

  10. dave777blaster says:

    beans are excellent crops per sq ft they produce a lot. peas is another one.
    pole varieties produce more for a given area.

    Depends a lot on soil condition, irrigation, experience, etc. I would err on the high side if anything and say maybe an acre just for the veggies. This is from experience not from reading a couple of “square foot” books. 🙂

  12. SurvivalReport says:

    We have rotten luck with corn down here, but the soil is fairly poor to begin with. One of the upcoming vids will be a comparison of corn grown strictly organically and a patch not grown organically.

  13. Cheddar25000 says:

    I know there are a lot of variables here so perhaps this is a tough question to answer but how much land would you recommend for a typical family of four to be self reliant all year for just vegetables based on your recommended varieties and a 120 day growing season? If one then wanted to grains such as wheat, oats, and perhaps a third type – again for four people all year assuming say 120 day growing season – how much land would you recommend to allow for both food and seed collection?

  14. Cheddar25000 says:

    Quick question… ref corn and its high fertilizer requirements. My thinking it that I would plants corn intermixed with soybeans or pole beans at the same time which should add nitrogen to the soil for the corn to use. I also thinking one could use human urine diluted with an appropriate amount of water to add nitrogen to the soil as well. Native peoples would bury a small fish in the ground beneath each corn stalk as they planted the seed to provide fertilizer. Any thoughts on viability?

  15. SurvivalReport says:

    Exactly. I guess everyone wearing a Cincinnati Reds hat lives in Ohio also 😉 Thanks for watching.

  16. hiphopsocnroc says:

    OK, so your down in the south, how do I know maybe your hat, there goes “hideability” J/K

    Good vids!

    Hard times to come

  17. SurvivalReport says:

    True, depends on your climate and that. Folks in Vermont aren’t going to be able to grow some things we can grow. Conversely, they can grow some things we can’t!

  18. AnnieNM06 says:

    some varieties of beans can be grown in cold weather or even in winter in temperate places.
    good video. thanks

  19. DoctorsWife56 says:

    At least the hat has as much class as you do. Keep posting!

  20. SurvivalReport says:

    Thanks! I don’t really follow sports, I just like the hat 😉

    Go Tech!

  22. Maratrushka says:

    thank you im copying on my notebook all your advices, for when the net goes down or to expensive to pay.

    I’m making flax/sesame seed crackers right now in my dehydrator. I add left over carrot and celery pulp from juicing, plus chili powder, salt, etc.. I’m also going to make some nut bars with dried fruit in the dehydrator. These are good foods that are packed with nutrients, and they also last a long time.

  24. OptikNerv1138 says:

    Hey, I really appreciate this series of videos. My biggest take-away was the idea of stripping houses for the sheet-rock content. great idea. Agree with you on the .223 comment below too heh. Would like to hear more commentary on crop selection. You did mention chili’s..important crop for me; I find highly variable yield with them depending on variety and particular plant and only save seed from the best..another reason to do this stuff BEFORE TSHTF.

    I have a nice harvest and gardens each year for when shtf and i’m ready for whatever’s going to happen and the food i grow is going to be mine and noone would get within 200yds. of my house without hearing a .270 Winchester flying past their heads
