Garlic Growing Experiment

A few months back, wound up doing some research on some gardening and wound up running into information about Garlic.   It seemed easy enough, so figured let’s give it a try. Let’s see what we came up with?

Starting off, the idea came from watching one of ‘The Rustic Garden’s videos. The gentlemen in the video named Gary explained the process of growing garlic, and that’s what was used as a template for this experiment.

These garlic cloves were planted eight week ago or so. We are in growing zone 7B. Garlic falls under the fall growing season for the most part.

The pot that the garlic cloves were planted in were 12 inch high, and 16 inches in diameter.

The garlic bulbs should mature between March and Mid June.

These particular garlic bulbs were sourced from Sprouts and are of the organic variety.

First in the process, you want to take the paper off the outside of the garlic bulb . Then, you will proceed to break the bulb apart into individual cloves. The largest & best looking cloves are the ones you want to plant. The pointed side is where the green is going to come out, and the opposite side is the one that will be done as the root side. Make sure to use potting mix for growing Garlic.

After that, the cloves should be buried 2-3 inches deep, and anywhere between 3-6 inches apart. And as mentioned before, these were planted in a pot.

Garlic will want to be kept in until the soil temperature is around 45-50 degrees.

The garlic greens can be chopped up for salads and also they can be used for stirfry.

Other than that, these photos were taken at the 5-week part. As you can see, of the 14 garlic cloves planted, nine have sprouted.  [In fact, they have ALL now sprouted, which will be addressed in a future update.]

Have you ever attempted planting garlic? If you have let me know how the experience was for you.

Definitely look forward to see how these little guys grow. Time will tell.

America 2020 – What Will The Landscape Look Like?

By: Zy Marquiez
December 18, 2015

We are going to put imagination to a test.   You are each encouraged to do this on your own.

Put pen to paper, and imagine the world as it will be during the year 2020.

Let’s begin.

Monsanto‘s stock will be completely eviscerated as more information comes forth regarding their full range of cancerous products and genetically modified food garbage.

Cyber false flags will increase at a monumental rate. Said events will be used by the mainstream media presstitutes and the comptrollers to push further for a digital currency. Most people will be skeptical given the banking /financial establishment’s unstable records.

The powers that shouldn’t be will keep pushing the Vaccine agenda, but they will stir a hornet’s nest as millions of parents, specifically women, will draw the line at forceful vaccinations [such as SB277] which will also merge into a greater agenda, that being forceful medical procedures. Lines will be drawn. The parents will make sure there is hell to pay if anyone touches their children.

People will figure how to breakaway from fluorideFluoridation information will go widespread, as information will reach critical mass as countless more towns will continue to clamor for the removal of fluoridation such as this, and this, and this, and this, oh and this. Untold numbers of folks will begin to realize the benefits of real, clean water, and will purchase, and create their own filters as time goes by.

Aspartame will be seen as equal to diseases by a sizeable portion of the population and outright bans will be requested, which storm all the way up to congress as more and more people continue to file thousands of adverse side effects from the consumption of such products poisons.

The mainstream media will no longer be seen by the majority of the populace as the most trusted news source. Their numbers will continue to plummet, which will force buy-outs, mergers and outright shutdowns of entire news stations. More independent journalists will detach from the system and they will be coming out in droves. They will smell blood, and the sharks will circle, for the first REAL time in quite a while.

More cancer cures will be found, and an exponential number of people will find out the truth about the causes/cures for cancer and how Big Pharma/Big Medica and the comptrollers are responsible for the suppression of many [most?] of the cures.   An increasing number of people will also begin to seek alternative remedies for their diseases, and even more will learn how to combat diseases in more ways than most can imagine.

Organic, non-genetically modified, gluten free, locally grown fresh foods, will grow exponentially to the tune of tens of billions of dollars, with an outside shot at overtaking 100 billion as more corporations position themselves for the global change. This will propel a tidal wave of companies into a bottleneck for decent portions of the market share. New faces will rise, old ones will fall, but folks still remain weary given the previous behavior of corporations in years past.

Tangible assets will grow in people’s portfolios, and those said assets will become more readily known by the ‘average’ investor. People will take the reins of their financial flagship and steer it where it makes most sense for them, and not the corporations.   Savings rate will be the highest its been in decades. Banks won’t be as trusted as before, even though they will continue to clamor for a digital currencies.

Average health in the United States, and in many western nations, will begin to shift due to the unprecedented change of people shifting to real foods. More people will quit smoking and drinking due to the deleterious effects those vices cause on their health.

Homegrown foods will increase at an extremely rapid rate, and people will begin saving bucket loads of money due to this transition. Their health will also benefit greatly from such an endeavor.

Tyrannical government players will continue to play the ‘gun-control’ cards after real shootings coupled with false-flag operations. However, they will realize that similar to the Vaccine Agenda, the Gun-Control card will only be worse for them and will serve to wake people up as its continuing to do.

The controlled descent of the economy will have begin to shift into a holding pattern, as 3D printing, coupled with local/online small businesses which are infused with cash via crowdfunding programs that will continue to take the entire globe by storm as individuals stampede into taking their power back. Manufacturing within the United States will begin to look better than it has in over a decade. Small business will be a boon to the economy, especially local ones.

The fracture that is taking place behind the scenes between different warring factions of the globalist empires – some of them no doubt breakaways – will amplify in breath and scope. Mysterious murders and deaths will litter the American/European/global landscape as hidden players keep vying for power in this global game of chess. Who will win? That’s up to you to decide.

New whistleblowers will emerge within the Cancer, Vaccine, Health, Biotech, Financial and Intelligence structures. Data dumps will be the name of the game, and this will cause chaos behind the scenes.

Lockheed Martin’s stock will continue to grow due to their unprecedented technological innovation directly tied to the Breakaway Structure and powerplayers. Many space related corporations/assets will grow, many of them privately, and a select few will hold more power than people imagine. Space Ports will begin to grow en mass within the BRICS Nations. Space Tourism will be the talk of the day, but false flags will morph on the horizon beyond our atmosphere in the form of ‘accidents’.   Some battle lines will be drawn in the sand in space between the Breakaways and newer players.

But more importantly, you will realize how to play their game, which is by removing yourself from the board completely thus not allowing your time/money/energy to be tapped by such a noxious system.

The question isn’t why would those events take place? The question is why not? Some strong currents of change are already being felt.

The power will ultimately lie in the individual. Will the individual choose to continue the toxic life, or will they realize that there are other doors, other options to be able to live a better, happier, more product life for themselves? Time will tell.

All of this will ensue with billions of choices. You can either help your freedom, or help your slavery. In the end, everyone helps polish one side of the coin or the other.

—————————————–

On the pillars of tomorrow, Orwell and Huxley will be sitting. While relaxing on rocking chairs, volleying back and forth in a heated game of chess, they eventually note the change in the currents of humanity. Each will gaze at each other, nod, smirk, realizing that for the first time in modern times the tsunami of chaos that was heading in our direction, was redirected right at the powers that shouldn’t be.

Then Orwell proceeds to tell Huxley, “Guess Tesla was right?”

“Regarding what?” Huxley counters.

“Last week at our roundtable discussions remember he said ‘Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surroundings, the sphere of influence extends to infinite distance.’

“Guess humanity is figuring it out after all…” finalizes Huxley.

Orwell nods in appreciation as they fade away into the memories of the Universe.

The end? Or the beginning?

Continuing Sweet Potato Slips

In our previous blog regarding this topic, we showed what we were up to with a little experiment regarding sweet potato slips possibly for next year.

With that said, we’re now six weeks from the nascent stages of the experiment.  The bad news is, that one of the two original momma sweet potatoes went on strike for low wages.  The great news is that the one that didn’t, proliferated like it was a harem of rabbits.

Three days after our previous post, two more slips were moved into mason jars.  Those weren’t documented via photography though.  However, in this latest batch we have a few photos to share the progression of the sweet potatoes.

The photos will show the original sweet potato from whom the slips are being born from.  There in we have the four original slips from the first batch, and the second two slips that weren’t cataloged.  Finally, we have the new batch of five slips to add to the bunch for a total of eleven.

SP1
Above we have the original sweet potato [second from right], with the first and second batch of slips.

SP2To the right we now have the original ‘momma’ sweet potato in all her infinite glory.

Below you have the root system of all of the sweet potato slips that have been moved from the first and the second batches.

All in all, considering that they have gotten no sunlight whatsoever, and luckily it has required minimal attention, the slips and the mother seem to be doing great.  We’ll see how many more slips the future holds.

SP3

The last picture shows shows the five new plants with the mother on the left.  Hopefully the experiment continues to go well.

SP4

Below follow the videos that prompted the idea for this experiment, and hopefully we can continue to learn/progress as time goes by.

If you happen to have any insights to have, it is always greatly appreciated.

Starting on October 23, 2015 we opted to follow the tips of the first video provided below, and the following illustration is how the Sweet Potato slips looked after about a month.

We figured we would run this experiment now, before next year’s growing season to see what was possible with Organic Sweet Potatoes sourced from the store.  As you can see, the one on the right has produced many stalks while the one on the right has underperformed, although this is our FIRST experiment.

The second picture below are the stalks as they are going to be kept to see how they grow over the next 30-60 days in order to better ascertain what to expect this year.   It’s just an experiment, but we’ll see where this goes.
