Another Bootstrap Book ONLY from New Terra Farm...
WHAT'S YOUR PLAN WHEN THE FOOD RUNS OUT?
FOOD SECURITY IS A REAL CONCERN THESE DAYS...
If you're not sure how you would feed yourself and your family in a protracted emergency...
If you believe a secure food supply is fundamental to any survival plan...
If you have about a dozen garden books, but no garden...
...then you would probably appreciate a guide that puts a REAL Survival Garden within your reach starting right NOW!
If it all hits the fan, Job #1 is to feed yourself and your family. If you are able to grow a significant portion of your own food, you are that much more likely to survive and thrive.
Fortunately, growing a real food garden doesn't have to be complicated. Provided you know the right steps to make it happen.
What if you spend time and money and it doesn't work? You can avoid that risk by following a step-by-step plan to grow a garden that will feed you in times of uncertainty.
The best time to learn how to grow a lot of food is 'before you have to'.
You can be ready to grow your survival garden in just a couple days.
I've got a year's worth of potatoes in these beds, plus enough to replant
When you are growing food because you have to, the focus is on calories. I average 80-100 pounds of potatoes from a 50-foot row. At 400 calories per pound, one row would provide 1000 calories a day for more than 40 days! 9 rows like this would provide 1000 calories a day for a year.
Note: 'kale' does not appear in my Bootstrap Survival Garden.
I wish I knew THIS when I started gardening for REAL.
OK look; I am NOT a born gardener. I'm a computer programmer by training. My dad was an electronics technician. I did not grow up around gardening.
I was married, had a couple kids, a good job, and was generally a busy guy.
I didn't see the need to take on a garden.
But then something unforeseen happened.
You might be old enough to remember a little thing called Y2K.
A Lesson From Y2K...
Oh noes! We all gonna die!
So you probably remember the premise of Y2K; the world is going to end because algorithms that run computers all over the world won't be able to handle date functions shortly after the clock strikes midnight on December 31, 1999.
Since I was a computer guy and a business process guy, I got hired by a number of federal departments to create business continuity plans to keep government operations running if the compost actually hit the fan.
On day one, a funny thing happened. I was reviewing a set of plans developed by a manager for one of these departments.
This guy had thought of everything ; he had planned for office space, computers, back-up power, satellite phones, secure vehicles and parking, etc. etc.
He had covered it all . . . . except for FOOD!
He had not factored in so much as a coffee pot for this 'extended camp-out'.
Right about there I decided I would not depend on the 'gummint' to feed me and mine.
So in June 2000 I took some of the money I made 'fixing' Y2K, and bought New Terra Farm.
And then I started learning how to feed myself and my family if worst came to worst.
Yeah, I learned how to grow stuff
What the heck is a 'Bootstrap Survival Garden'?
This book mirrors 20+ years of our gardening experience to bring you a REAL PLAN to grow your own Survival Garden
From page 12 of Bootstrap Survival Garden:
"What do you need to know to grow a productive garden"?
WHAT. What are the best vegetables to grow for maximum payback for my time and money? See the Core 4 and Great 8.
And what tools and techniques do I use to make that happen? See Tools and Techniques
WHERE. Where do I place my garden in my yard to get optimum growing conditions? Or if optimum conditions don’t exist, how do I create them? See Site and Soil
WHEN. When do I start seeds and when can I plant outdoors? See Seed Starting Schedule
HOW. How do I start seeds, and transplant them, and care for and protect my plants? See Seed Starting in Chapter III.
All about the Gardener's WWF - Weeding, Watering and Feeding to produce a bountiful harvest.
In short, this book is packed full of extensive practical information on crop choices, tools to use, and growing, harvesting and preserving food and seeds to create your own survival garden.
It's the book I wish I had way back in June 2000 when Suzie and I started this adventure.
But can't I just store food to get through a crisis?
is fundamental to any survival plan. I'm sure we agree on that.
But is a survival garden necessary? Can't we just store up food to get through a crisis?
Storing food is an excellent idea! New Terra Farm has cold storage for onions, potatoes, carrots, beets and garlic, warmer storage areas for sweet potatoes and winter squash, and about 200 jars of preserves in our pantry, plus 4 freezers full of beef, chicken, turkey and pork. We also have a bunch of 'survival buckets' stashed away.
But being able to produce your own food is critical to long-term survival.
Fall and winter stores. But you gotta grow it before you stow it!
Food Security Starts With a REAL Food Garden
Bootstrap Survival Garden and bonus Plan Book - on sale for $16.50
Suzie and I learned how to feed ourselves one step at a time. We started with growing a substantial portion of our own food in our garden.
We wanted to learn how to grow a lot of calories, and provide robust nutrition, in a sustainable and efficient manner.
We put the lessons we learned into Bootstrap Survival Garden.
Get it plus my bonus 'Survival Garden Plan' book
You might not think you have enough land for a substantial, practical garden. I got you covered! I'm including my Survival Garden Plan Book with layouts and plans for gardens from 1,000 to 5,000 square feet. Even a modest back yard (or rented plot) can accommodate one of my plans.
I've included 10 garden layouts in different sizes to accommodate your space and your preferences.
They include crop choices, bed layout and suggestions for crop rotation to maintain soil fertility and keep the harvest coming year after year.
