Preppers Garden – Tip Of The Week – July 21, 2016 –

 Small Scale Preppers Garden

When you plan a preppers garden consider the following.

 Instead of regular houseplants, grow herbs and vegetables like basil, oregano, spinach, various lettuces and anything edible.

Tomatoes can be grown in pots on the patio or apartment balcony.  Got two or three old tires laying around?Potatoes can be grown in old tires.

Lay some straw down place the tire on top add some good dirt or compost until the tire is full plant your seed potatoes water and wait for them to come up. Once they have a few leaves stack another tire fill with the dirt or compost continue until you have three or four tires stacked and filled. After the plants flower and the leaves begin to fall dig in you will have new potatoes at the top with larger as you get near the bottom.

We grow corn in the same way using one tire for five stalks we line the tires three or four rows of five side by side we then fill with compost and plant five seeds per tire you will get one or two ears from each stock. We use this method for our kitchen garden.
