I suggest that you learn to garden because you may need it soon for survival, especially with the left ramping up their coup and civil war or you might get just a wee bit on the skinny side.
I decided to try an experiment to see if I can increase the number of seeds germinating. What I am doing is putting those seeds on small pieces of wet paper towels in plastic sandwich bags and then, when they root, I put them all in one inch seed pots in a square plastic container used for 4 pieces of fried chicken at stores like Walmart, which have a clear top for sunlight to shine through and a black bottom.
I am using these containers as miniature or micro greenhouses to keep the seeds warmer outside in this cool winter weather to see if being warmer will cause more seeds to germinate by increasing molecular activity.
In one container, I have put four units of 4 one inch seed pots with seeds or seedlings planted in the soil and in the other container, I put a bunch of bags stacked on each other, each with different types of seeds to see which, if either will cause more seeds to germinate.
Mean while, I have 8 units of 4 one inch seed pots not in the micro green houses with seeds and a few already growing plants for comparison. It is called a control group.
I take them all outside when it is above 50 degrees F and bring them all in when it is either below 50 degrees F or it is evening to keep them warm for seed germination and better growing. Inside I put all of them except the seeds in the bags under grow lights under a bathroom sink I use as a mini growing room.
We will see how this works out.
A few days after I wrote the above, I have learned that some seeds will germinate with the wet paper towel and baggy system but, those that don't are being "scarified" by soaking them so they will germinate easier when planted in the seed pots.
Therefore, I am now "soaking" the seeds on the wet paper towels for 5 to 10 days or until they grow roots, whichever comes first, and then planting them in seed pots.
I have found that my micro green houses work in cooler weather to help the seeds germinate but you better be careful when it gets over 50 degrees F because, after the plant has started growing, those little micro green houses can get hot enough to kill the seedlings in just a few hours. I was amazed at how hot those little boxes can get even on these cool winter days. One killed a cantaloupe seedling and a watermelon seedling.
Therefore, I am using them only to keep the pots and plants warm enough to help germinate the seeds, especially for plants like watermelon, and then I have to take them out of the micro green houses when the plants have started growing and go outside during the day for sunlight, when it gets much over 50 degrees F, unless a cold wind is blowing.
Lesson learned and shared.
You should see what I use to save money on gardening because I am poor and don't have hundreds to thousands of dollars to spend on growing a few dollars worth of fruits and vegetables. I have about a 1,000+ one inch seed pots I inherited, plus about a dozen 2 inch pots I got when I bought a few plants from the store last year. I also use short, flat 12 to 13 oz meat cans used for chicken and tuna that I put holes in the bottom for drainage with nails but you can only use the cans which are opened by can opener unless you remove the lip left by the pop top on cans. I found those cans are great for rooting "babies" from runners on strawberries to plant after they have rooted well and to plant them where I want them. You can root the strawberry babies while they are still on the runners.
I also use 12 oz plastic disposable glasses that you can get about 50 to 60 for a few bucks I drilled holes in the bottom for 2 inch pots but you have to be careful moving them because they have small, unstable bottoms compared to regular 2 inch pots. I am also saving small yogurt containers for one inch pots in case I need them later.
I even recycle sand by moving it from a plant bed I don't want to use any more to a new plant bed. I just swap the clay from the new plant bed with the sand from the old plant bed, especially since the sand from the old plant bed now has much more biomatter because of the plants I already grew in it.
I make do with what little I have to increase what I have at as little cost as possible.
Also, something I have not seen any of the x-spurts talk about and get it right is how much you should water.
First, how much you should water depends on the type of plant, the temperature, the humidity, and the type of soil and there are some other basics the x-spurts are missing.
I saw a YouTube video talking about watering seeds which said that, even when the top of the soil in the seed pot is dry, there will still be water in the bottom of the seed pot the seed can use.
Really? And just how does that seed at the top of the soil access the water one or more inches beneath it without roots?
How you water the plant depends on the growth stage of the plant. When it is just a seed, the soil the seed is in must remain moist and water out of reach beneath the seed won't do the seed any good. Therefore, when it is just a seed, you have to keep the top of the soil moist; not wet, just moist.
When the seed starts growing a root, you have to start watering deep enough to keep the soil around the root moist. A seedling with a one inch root won't be able to access and use water 3 to 4 inches beneath the soil.
When the plant grows and the roots get deeper, it is no longer necessary to keep the top of the soil moist but only the soil the roots are in.
Also, as the plant gets larger, it will use more water so you have to water more deeply. This will also be true about things like fertilizer because larger plants use more fertilizer.
Since Trump got into office, I am seeing increasing evidence that the US Military is changing from getting ready for a defensive war to an offensive war. Basically, it looks like they are ramping up for a preemptive strike or even strikes against two or more hostile nations.
This is important because a preemptive strike, if done right, means the enemy can't do as much damage to your military and could destroy enough of their military to prevent a war.
Does this mean that the US military is preparing for preemptive strikes against at least China, Iran, and North Korea since the military probably also realizes that those nations are ramping up to stage a multiple front war against the US to spread US forces out and make it easier for them to defeat the US?
The best way to defeat such a strategy is to stage effective preemptive strikes against those hostile nations to force those nations on the defensive and prevent them from spreading out your forces on as many fronts.
Keep an eye on this.
I find it absolutely amazing that none of these x-spurts have connected the dots on this. Get it straight, what today's young people believe in mass is what they have been taught or brainwashed to believe by their parents, school teachers, college professors, media, and other lefties.
Those who love socialism and hate capitalism were taught lies by their lefty instructors, which caused the young people to love socialism and hate capitalism. These lefties who taught them these lies and bad ideas are the cause of the problem and they 1) need to be stopped from lying to other young people to turn them for socialism and against capitalism and 2) be held accountable for the harm they have caused.
What do these x-spurts think, the young people were born brainwashed into believing this stupid crap?
The lefties teaching this insanity are ultimately responsible for this insanity. These young socialist idiots were taught to be socialist idiots. They didn't just dream up this socialist crap themselves.
Think I am wrong?
I got this from Breitbart by Michael Patrick Leahy:
"A well-funded and subversive leftist movement of teachers in the United States threatens to tilt the political balance nationwide in the direction of Democrats across the country as Republicans barely hang on in key states that they need to hold for President Donald Trump to win re-election and for Republicans to have a shot at retaking the House and holding onto their Senate majority."
Lefty public school teachers are a big part of the problem and they need to be held accountable for their treasons in subverting the young people for Marxism and against Christianity and capitalism.
After I wrote the above, I saw a video which showed that some people are finally getting it about our educational system brainwashing our kids.
After the dust settles, we must hold these lefty commie traitor brainwashing teachers and college professors accountable for their actions in causing this war.
Don't forget the attorneys either.
Always keep in mind that, when the left talks about God, you should always ask, "Whose god? Their god, Satan?"
That is what they mean when they talk about "god" in a favorable manner. They clearly hate the one true God of the Bible, Hebrews, Christians, and all creation and are waging war against us and our God. Therefore, it should be obvious that, when they say god, they don't mean your God but their god, Satan.
Now that they have legalized pot in Commiefornia, the black market is destroying the legal market and the taxes the lefty commie traitors thought they would get so the lefty commie traitors are finally waging war against that drug market.
This proves that the lefties don't care about you, your health, or anything else about you. All they care about is how much they can steal from you because they can't steal enough from enough people fast enough.
I do hope you know that the lefty upper class trash are making a fortune selling people drugs. That is why they have insisted on tying our hands in fighting the war on drugs.
I am absolutely amazed at how many of the x-spurts don't get it about globalism.
Californian and New York are great examples of why the commies want globalism. As the commies in Commiefornia and New York increase their taxes and oppression, increasing numbers of people flee to where the taxes are lower and there is less oppression.
Under globalism, you know, where the commies have absolute control of the entire planet, you can't flee anywhere that they can't steal from you or oppress you. You can't run or hide from them and then the commies can steal all they want from everyone and oppress everyone.
That is the primary reason why the commies want globalism, you know, world wide slavery with the upper class trash commies being the slave masters.
Why don't the x-spurts understand this when it seems so obvious?
I am tired of rich people committing fraud by preaching socialism to get their followers to submit to and force socialism on us, especially without them first practicing socialism, so I have decided to fight back to stop this fraud.
I wrote a new White House petition on We the People, a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your name to mine? If this petition gets 99,999 signatures by March 25, 2019, the White House will review it and respond.
We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the White House to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the White House will issue an official response.
You can view and sign my petition here:
Here's some more information about this petition:
"Preachers practicing what they preach about Socialism
We, the people, want people, especially people making over $80,000/year or who have a personal worth of more than $250,000 and/or more than one home, preaching or promoting socialism or Marxism in any form or under any name to prove they really believe in socialism/Marxism before they can try to force it on others or before they can continue to promote the idea of redistributing other people's wealth by practicing the socialism/Marxism they are preaching or promoting by redistributing their own wealth to the poor. In other words, we, the people want the rich socialists to put up or shut up."
I think we should stop this fraud of rich people preaching and promoting socialism while not practicing it by prosecuting them for fraud. This is one more way to fight back against the rich socialists destroying our nations. Help me fight back by signing the petition.
If they have to give away their own money before they can work towards giving away other people's money, it will at least slow them down. Every little bit helps in this fight.
I thought about this petition for a while and God said, "Hey, stupid, what about this?" and stupid listened.
I went back to the White House petition web site and started to write the following petition, which is even better because it is good law to stop all of these rich socialist criminals and their fraudulent socialist cons. The following is what I started to write, which is a good start for writing good law:
"We, the people, recognize that rich people pretending to be socialists/Marxists by promoting socialism/Marxism in contradiction to the most fundament principles of socialism/Marxism constitutes fraud, a federal felony. Therefore, we the people, insist that all rich people fraudulently pretending to be socialists/Marxists by promoting socialism/Marxism be required to 1) divest themselves of their wealth and redistribute that wealth to the poor as per the most fundament principles of socialism/Marxism to include divesting themselves of all income greater than $80,000/year before taxes, all personal wealth in excess of $250,000, excluding real estate but including liquid assets such as cash, trust funds, retirement funds, cars, planes, boats, and other such items, and divest themselves of all but one piece of real estate they live on with a value of no more than $1 million or 2) publically denounce socialism/Marxism in any form and by any name, or 3) be prosecuted for fraud and, if convicted, spend at least 10 to 20 years in prison plus all of their wealth, which they won't need in prison, be seized by the government and redistributed for them to the poor. If you are going to talk the talk, you have to walk the walk or it's fraud."
But they only allow 800 characters so I had to edit it down to this:
We, the people, recognize that rich people pretending to be socialists by promoting socialism in contradiction to the most fundamental principles of socialism constitutes fraud, a federal felony. Therefore, we the people, insist that all rich people fraudulently pretending to be socialists by promoting socialism be required to 1) divest themselves of their wealth and redistribute that wealth to the poor as per the most fundamental principles of socialism to include divesting themselves of all income greater than $80,000/yr before taxes, all personal wealth in excess of $250,000, excluding real estate but including all other assets, and divest themselves of all but one real estate they live on valued at less than $1 million or 2) publically denounce socialism or 3) be prosecuted for fraud."
You can go here to sign this petition and help make this law.
Listen, freedom of speech and freedom of the press do not mean that people can commit crimes like fraud, the courts have already established this, and pretending to be something you are not, like a socialist, is fraud. If these rich people were socialists, they would redistribute their wealth to the poor people.
We need to take a stand against these commie traitor lefties and fight back to save our nations or we will soon become their impoverish and oppressed slaves. I am doing the best I can to fight back and you need to help me by joining the fight by signing both of these petitions. We need to fight in any and every way we can to stop their evil agenda.
Please feel free to copy either of these texts and use them in any way you can, such as e-mails to conservative politicians, the media, and others, to help win this fight for our freedoms and rights. The leftists have to be stopped. It is time for rebellion so be the rebel and sign the petitions.
