Re: What did you do to prepare today?

Today I am mashing malt I made from feed barley this summer. I will ferment the sweet liquid and turn it into whiskey.

While the enzymes do their work I will be preparing the garden beds for winter.

Re: What did you do to prepare today?

I spent the day planting garlic and preparing the beds for winter. A good sign for when to plant garlic in the fall up here is when the first frost comes. I plant the cloves 6 inches apart and 3 inches deep in holes I make with my thumb. I then fill the hole with compost. The bed prep involved addin...

Re: How does your garden grow?

So I wish I knew this before I started my potato experiment: Potatoes need cool soil. And growing them in garbage bags above ground results in warm soil that will often reduce yields significantly. The most productive method of growing potatoes is still in the ground and mounding them in the traditi...

Re: How does your garden grow?

Well both my vertical onion growing and potato growing experiments were a bust. In comparison to the control patch, the onions were small and the yields were low. I noticed that moisture control is a challenge with this system and maybe this is the problem. I got a few full sized bulbs, but most wer...

Re: Does Genesis provide a framework for the control of humanity?

So Joseph becomes aware of a climatic cycle through a revelation of pharaoh's dreams. He shares this knowledge with pharaoh, but it appears that this knowledge is kept from the general population. Notice that in the account of Noah, he spends decades warning the population and nobody takes him serio...

Does Genesis provide a framework for the control of humanity?

The existence of climate cycles was well known to the ancient cultures. The book of Genesis for example describes how Joseph became aware of a 7 year climatic cycle in egypt, and how he exploited that cycle to strip the entire population of Egypt of their assets and cast them into bound servitude fo...

The Dalton Minimum

Thought we could use a topic dedicated to the last GSM of 1790 to 1830. 1816 was dubbed "the year without summer", where snow and killing frost in Eastern Canada marked June, July, and August. Meanwhile, the Northwest passage was open for shipping. Nasa seems to think this GSM will be just like the ...
