    Preparing to Provide! 2ed & 4th Tuesdays each month *9:00pm/Est *8:00pm/Ct *7:00pm/Mt *6:00pm/Pt Live Listen and Chat go to: http://prepperbroadcasting.com/ For this week's show, I am going to have somewhat of an open format. Unlike shows in the past where I have had guests or a designated topic, I am going to cover a broad range of questions that I receive in response to my youtube videos. They may be related to gardening, hydroponics, or life in general. Many times, the answers are too complicated for a 2 or 3 sentence response. Some of the questions for this week: Am I concerned about the commercial fertilizers that I use in regard to how they affect me or the environment? How do I feel about the amount of plastics that I use in my hydroponics setups? How did I build my greenhouse? What is the best advice I've ever received? Where do I get square buckets?   But I don't want this show to be solely about me. This is an hour in my schedule that I have set aside to make myself available to anyone who would like to talk to me, regardless of what the topic is. So feel free to call in with your questions, comments, or suggestions at 347-202-0228, and be sure to press 1. I'd like to hear what you're up to.

What kind and how much depends on what you’re growing, and your particular style of growing. So it’s important to have a good understanding of the nutrient needs of the specific plants. Whether you’re organic, or just a conventional gardener, there are plenty of choices when it comes to feeding your plants. For this week’s show, I’ll be talking about N-P-K…the fertilizer ratio that is printed on each bag. For many people, the preference is simply a balanced fertilizer like 10-10-10 (triple 10). But suppose you want to address the nitrogen issue for side dressing a heavy feeder like corn. Or maybe you want to increase the flowers in your flower garden by adding some phosphorus. What products are available? How do you know which is best, or when to apply it? Join me for an interesting discussion as I answer these questions and many more, and try to help you gain a better understand of what you can do to grow a better garden.

    For the past several weeks we’ve spent a lot of time on raising chickens and homesteading. Well, the weather is beginning to warm up, people are starting seeds, and the folks down South are already planting. So it’s time to focus on my primary topic, gardening and growing your own food. I get lots of questions in response to my YouTube videos,  http://www.youtube.com/user/mhpgardener  and many times there are just not enough hours in the day to respond to all of them in detail. As you would guess, the same questions get asked over and over. For this discussion, I will be compiling a list of the most frequently asked questions and providing in depth answers for each of them. Some of the topics will be seed starting, greenhouse construction and growing, and hydroponics. Also, I will give my personal account of exactly how I became so involved in gardening. So join me for an interesting evening of Q & A, and feel free to call in with any questions or tips that you may have.

    Preparing to Provide! 1st & 3ed Fridays each month *9:00pm/Est *8:00pm/Ct *7:00pm/Mt *6:00pm/Pt Live Listen and Chat go to: http://prepperbroadcasting.com/ There is a lot of interest in being self-sufficient these days. People are looking for information on how to grow and store their own food, provide their own meats, go off-grid with solar setups… get out of the system so to speak. We see a lot of these things in videos and on TV, and it all looks so cool. It seems like such an enjoyable way of life. And it really is. But there is a great deal of work involved, lots of back-breaking labor. In the summer time, it’s often sunup to sundown… so much to do. And the animals and gardens don’t stop eating and growing just because you get tired. As the saying goes, “the show must go on”. So what is it really like on a day to day basis? To get some first-hand accounts about the life of a true homesteader, I have a very special guest for this show. If you’re familiar with YouTube, this lady is a legend. She does it all. If it has to do with homesteading, she does it, and does it well. Cooking on a woodstove, splitting firewood, gardening and canning, raising and processing animals, she and her family do all of the things that you’d consider to be part of the true homesteading life. From the great state of Tennessee, I’ll be talking with Misty, also known as Misty Prepper to her Facebook friends.

For those who aren’t familiar with AP, it’s a process that involves growing fish and plants together, in one complete system. The waste from the fish is what provides the nutrients for the plants. In terms of being self-sufficient, an aquaponics setup would certainly make a great addition. If you were able to put this inside a greenhouse, and grow the plants year round, that would be even better. But you’d probably need a way to heat the greenhouse. Well, Rob solved that problem with a Rocket Mass Heater. And for some added insurance in the event of a power outage, he also installed solar panels to meet his electrical needs. So for this show, we’ll be providing lots of information for anyone looking to get into aquaponics. And if time permits, we will also be discussing the Rocket Mass Heaters and various solar power options. Please join us for another great show, and feel free to call in with any questions you might have.

    It has been said that God will provide. Do you really believe that???

    in Religion

    No food...no roof over your head...no job...not to worry because God will provide. Do you really believe that???  For some, God takes the form of the government, and for others, God takes the form of the community church, synogogue or local charity!  Granted tha some people are just downright lazy and take... take...take!!!  But then, we have proud people who don't want a handout; they want a job; they want to earn  their place back in society. How do you feel about this???  We want to hear your opinions...So call us at 646-595-3275. Remember, the weather is changing, and it is getting cold. Make the coffee hot and strong!!!

    Preparing to Provide! 2ed & 4th Tuesdays each month *9:00pm/Est *8:00pm/Ct *7:00pm/Mt *6:00pm/Pt Live Listen and Chat go to: http://prepperbroadcasting.com/ My guest for this week is Rob Torcellini from YouTube.  Rob has an incredible setup. He built a huge Geodesic Dome greenhouse for indoor growing. For his grow method, he has chosen aquaponics and has been growing vegetables thru the winter. To heat his greenhouse, he built the most awesome Rocket Mass Heater that you’ll ever see. He even had it set up for automatic feeding of wood pellets. And to top it all off, his electrical needs are being supplied by solar panels. Rob is well on his way toward being self-sufficient and will be a great source of information for those of us who still have a lot of work to do, or anyone just getting started. Please join us for what promises to be another fantastic show filled with lots of useful tips and advice. We all have three basic needs… food, shelter, and clothing. Without food, the rest doesn’t matter. With food prices continuing to rise, it makes sense now more than ever to start growing your own food. So whether it’s a typical row garden, raised beds, greenhouse, or hydroponics… join Bobby as he shares how he is preparing to provide for his family and those in need, and how you too can be taking steps to care and provide for your loved ones.

We'll start the show with Pooter1176 http://www.youtube.com/user/Pooter1176 He has a typical coop and run, with plans for building chicken tractors to allow the birds to have fresh food on a daily basis. Following will be Don, aka MeanEvilConservative http://www.youtube.com/user/meanevilconservative He's a fellow Virginian with a few years of raising chickens, ducks, and quail. Whether it's laying hens or meat birds, he has a pretty good knowledge of what it takes to raise them. And to close out the show, we'll have PetPrepper  http://www.youtube.com/user/PetPrepper she’s been grooming animals for over 20 years and can give you some insight on dealing with extreme cold. She's pretty far north and has been working on ways to prevent frozen eggs. Tags: MHPgardener, Gardening, vegetables, Farming, Prepper Broadcasting

    Preparing to Provide! 1st & 3ed Fridays each month *9:00pm/Est *8:00pm/Ct *7:00pm/Mt *6:00pm/Pt Live Listen and Chat go to: http://prepperbroadcasting.com/ With the cost of eggs and chicken in the stores, and the uncertainty of exactly where they came from or what they have been fed, I'd like to start raising my own chickens. But unlike gardening, I know very little about chickens. I know barbecue wings with ranch dressing make a great snack. And I know that I don't like my yolks runny. Beyond that, I'm clueless. I have so many questions. What breed is best for egg layers? What breed is best for meat? What is the best method for raising them...free range or a coop? How well do the chicken tractors work? Are there any foods that a chicken shouldn't eat? How do you take care of them in the winter? I could do some research online and maybe get some answers. But I'd prefer to hear from someone with first-hand experience. Well, help has arrived! To get questions to these answers and many more, I have enlisted the help of Paul Wheaton. Many of you may know Paul from his extensive list of YouTube videos about rocket stoves.

During the last 3 broadcasts, we’ve been discussing seeds, primarily vegetable seeds. But as important as seeds are for growing food, there are some seeds that I feel are much more important. So as we prepare for Christmas, I’d like to talk about the seeds that we sow each day by our actions. In everything that we say and do, we plant a seed. It can be as simple as saying hello to a stranger, paying for someone else’s meal in a restaurant, or calling the owner of a lost dog after seeing the phone number on the dogs caller. In each case, it’s possible that you may never see that person again. But you don’t know what the future holds. There may come a time or situation where you desperately need help, and one of those people remembers how you had helped them. Or they may show up at your door one day with a gift of thanks. You just never know how things will play out. But one thing is certain; you can’t reap a bountiful harvest without first planting the seeds. I have numerous accounts of harvests that showed up when I least expected them. And they are always right on time. Now, I don’t want this to be all about me. I’d like to hear from some of you. It would be great if you could call into the show and share your experiences.

This Episode will be a re-broadcast The topic of GMO (genetically modified organism) is one that most people have a very strong opinion about. With the failure of California to pass Prop 37, a bill that would have required specific labeling of food to note whether it contained any GMO products, those opinions are stronger than ever. However, not everything that you hear about the GM story is accurate, especially as it relates to the seeds that you put in your garden. Should you be worried about GM seeds? Which ones are on the market right now? Can you buy them? What can we do to slow the spread of GM seeds? What can we do about the store bought foods that likely are GMO derived? What can you do to make a difference? These are a few of the questions that I plan to answer during this discussion. And, unlike my first show, I will hold off on the phone calls until I have fully presented my case. At that time, I will open the phone lines and address any further concerns and questions. When all is said and done, I hope to have offered up a solution that anyone could be a part of. Time will tell. :)
