How To Make The Perfect Hay Bale Gardening For Spring-Step By Step-Hay Bale Gardening Effortless Food Production with No Weeds, No Fertilizer & Less Watering

(Before It’s News)

We have decided to do Hay Bale gardening this year in Louisiana. This video shows us getting everything set up and the conditioning process started. No more worries about the yard flooding. The Hay Bale Garden series begins….

Hay bale gardening is probably the most fun you’ll have growing your own food and herbs, requiring almost no work or maintenance.

After a search online to find the simplest and easiest “no work” gardening method, I stumbled upon straw bale gardening. The concept is simple: You plant directly into bales of straw, and as the season progresses, the straw is broken down into virgin soil that nourishes the plants from inside the bale. One amazing benefit of this method of gardening is that the bales provide a raised bed, which keeps predators away and makes picking your vegetal treasures at the end of the season easy on the back. I watched every video I could find on the subject, and have since concluded that using HAY bales instead of STRAW bales is far superior.

Why Hay Bales are Superior to Straw Bales?

Before we get into why hay bales are superior to straw bales, let’s first define what they are:
Straw bales are basically stalks of plants, usually corn, that have been dried out and baled together into various shapes and sizes.
Hay bales are grasses that have been dried and baled together.

In my research, the idea that hay bales may have seeds in them and could grow weeds is the same reasoning reiterated time and time again by proponents of straw bale gardening. The reason why this idea holds little water is that when nitrogen is added to feed the bacteria and fungi to start the decomposition process of the bale, a process called “Conditioning your bale”, the interior of the bale can reach temperatures as high as 130 degrees Fahrenheit or more.

The likelihood of seeds surviving these extreme temperatures is slim, and a number of other benefits that come from using hay bales make it a far superior approach in my opinion.

-Straw is likely made from genetically modified plant matter – The problem with straw bales is that they will usually be made of genetically modified corn or soy. Do you really want your food growing in decomposing genetically modified plant matter?

-No fertilizer needed with hay – Hay is made of dried grasses, and for its ability to convert sunlight and soil minerals into dense nutrition, it has been said that grass is the healthiest plant on the planet. When we use hay bales for gardening (as opposed to straw bales), the compost that is formed within the bale to feed the plants is far superior in nutrition and, unlike straw bales, no fertilizer needs to be added to feed your plants throughout the season.

Less Watering – Straw holds water less effectively than hay, so instead of watering once per day with hay bales, you might have to do it 2 or 3 times per day.I like your concept

How to Grow a Hay Bale Garden

1

The first step to growing a hay bale garden is to acquire your hay bales. Take a look on your local classifieds like Kijiji or Craigslist and find a local farmer who is selling them. Once you find a nearby farmer with 40lb hay bales for sale, email them and arrange a time to pick them up or have them delivered to you.

Once you have the bales and have arranged them in your yard, the next step is to “condition” your bales. Buy yourself some 42-0-0 fertilizer, or some urea (nitrogen), and from here you will be introducing nitrogen into the bales over a 10-day period that will have the fungi, bacteria and insects breaking down your bales into fresh, virgin compost to feed your plants. You can also pee on your bales, as it is high in nitrogen and minerals, so start saving up pee in bottles for a fertilizer cost savings of about $40.

Days 1,3,5,7,9 – Add 1/2 cup of nitrogen to your bales and spray them with water so the nitrogen will soak in.
Days 2,4,6,8,10 – Soak the bale with water only.

1

During the conditioning process, the temperature of the bale will rise significantly, from my research, up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, the bales will become so hot that it’s important to keep the bales wet to eliminate the risk of a fire. Although risk of fire is minimal, keep this in mind when deciding where to stage your bales. When the conditioning process is complete, you’ll know it because the temperature inside the bale will have come back down from hot to warm. Now you’re ready to plant!

Simply plant your vegetable seeds or germinated seeds into the bale, water them once a day and you’re on your way to healthy produce in a few exciting months. The best part is, at the end of the season you’ll have yourself a heap of fresh compost that you can further compost or add to your other gardens or perennial plant beds for nourishment.

This Portable Shelter Can Be Set Up In Hours, “Withstand Hurricane Winds, Stronger Than City Hall”

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 10:26

(Before It’s News)

screen-shot-2017-02-28-at-3-11-41-am

How quickly could you set up shelter if you were forced out of your home, and had to find a new place to stay right away?

If normal alternatives don’t fit the situation, you could construct a quick-assembly dome shelter that is designed be as rigid as any conventional building up to code.

“What we have is a building that goes up as fast as a tent, and once it’s up, it’s stronger than city hall.”

The man pitching this interesting shelter design foresees its use for emergency medical sites, Red Cross relief, military housing, homeless shelters and refugee camps during a crisis… ironically, it is from a quite dated commercial.

In principle, it includes pre-fabricated leaves of the dome than can be rapidly pieced together, giving anyone in a SHTF situation, or a rural retreat the ability to create a cabin on demand – with prefab options for doors, windows, solar panels and flooring. If you want them for a longer term, they can stand permanently, and be finished out inside to increase comfort.

They are even strong enough to bury and blend in with earthen structure to camoflauge, conceal or simply keep your dome hut cool with earth contact.

It’s unique, and universal shape makes it naturally resistant to natural disasters, including the most severe hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes. And their quick construction offers a shelter that is as strong as normal building, with assembly that is only moderately more complicated than a tent.

No word on the pricing, but the company will quote one on the website; however there are plenty of designs out there for a DIY approach as well.

Consider it another tool in your preps, when survival matters above all else, and every resource must maximize the balance between cost and utility. Where simplicity and elegance of design count, it may be a good option.

Make a Cheap Single Pole Survival Tarp Teepee – Tipi Tent Shelter that can easily be carried in a Backpack

(Before It’s News)

Make a single pole tarp tipi – teepee tent shelter from a 12 x 16′ tarp or similar aspect ratio sized tarp. I show how to make this teepee that requires only 1 single wood pole (or a trekking pole)…

You can use other sized tarps to make the tipi bigger or smaller, but try to keep the aspect ratio the same for this project…

The old traditional method of making a tipi requires several poles to go around the perimeter and very much time to gather the materials and build the structure. With this method only one center pole is required, which can easily be found while out camping in the woods.

This is an adequate floorless shelter for bad weather and is storm proof. The camo pattern I used also provides for great stealth camping.

Requiring only one wood pole, or a single trekking pole, makes this system a compact and lightweight tipi-teepee tent kit that I can easily carry around with me in the woods, deserts and mountains and I made this relatively cheap, for under $30

There is a sacrifice in height using this new technique, but the added square footage at the base far advances the taller traditional structure in my humble opinion.

—You can go right to the cut pattern/plan here at 1:30

To give you an idea, the diameter at the base will be just a little smaller than the short dimension (12′ in this case gave me about a 12′ diameter at the base using a 5’6″ tall pole) so a 10′ by 14′ tarp, for example, would give you about a 9-10′ diameter at the base.

This 12 x 16′ tarp will provide plenty of room for a one person solo shelter, including room for a hot tent stove, a cot and chair. This will also be adequate for two persons minus the chair. It would be sufficient for 3 people to sleep in but you probably wouldn’t have room in the shelter for a stove or chair.

You’ll have to play around with the tarp to figure out the ideal length for the middle pole to suit your needs, but you do have some variance there.

Look for upcoming videos for modifications to this tarp tipi – teepee tent shelter such as adding a stove and jack making it a ‘hot tent’ and bushcrafting my own furniture such as a cot and chair to make the shelter more comfortable for living in

26(f) Program – This 100% Legal Tax Haven is Transforming Everyday Americans Into Millionaires!

This 100% Legal Tax Haven is Transforming Everyday Americans Into Millionaires!

By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS

Death and taxes. They’re both unavoidable, right?

Not so fast.

While nobody has cracked the code to eternal life, a small but growing number of Americans may have uncovered a way to avoid cutting a big tax check to Uncle Sam.

It’s 100% legal.  And for many, it’s helping them become millionaires.

 

“I call this the 26(f) Program,” Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald said in a recent interview. “In my 30+ years in the business, I’ve never seen anything as powerful as this.”


RELATED STORY:
President Reagan once fought Congress to keep this little-known tax loophole. Today it’s part of something much bigger that’s worth $80 billion to Americans.  Are you using it? (Full story…)


The 26(f) Program was championed after the Great Depression by President Roosevelt’s team behind Social Security and the FDIC.

And for decades it’s been used by politicians and famous billionaires to build unimaginable fortunes.

It’s also one of the most effective tax havens ever created.

“Presidents Reagan and Bush Jr., Governor Romney, and President Trump, they’ve all capitalized on the 26(f) Program. And you can add famous investors Peter Lynch and Sir John Templeton to that list too.” Fitz-Gerald explained.

While few details of the 26(f) Program are known to the public, that hasn’t prevented some fortunate Americans from tapping into it.

Mark Peltz spent 27 years as a cop.  The 26(f) Program helped him grab a $920,000 lump sum payout. All in a single day.

Even better, he’s going to be paid $17,000 every month for the rest of his life.

Then there’s Terrence Morgan. He worked various office jobs throughout his career.  But thanks in large part to his 26(f) Program, he has a net worth of $2 million.

And Roy Nair was once a natural gas distributor in Missouri, now he’s a retired millionaire.

“If someone is retired or hoping to retire someday the 26(f) Program is their ticket,” Keith Fitz-Gerald declared in this must-see interview.

Fitz-Gerald has been an analyst, consultant and quantitative trader for 34 years and cut his teeth at some of Wall Street’s biggest firms, including Wilshire Associates, which oversees more than $8 trillion for over 600 institutional investors.

“Think about making an extra $68,870.  What would you do with that extra cash?  Now multiply that by 10X or 20X,” Fitz-Gerald said.

“Now imagine on top of that also getting paid an extra $5,000 or $10,000 a month in income.  And then still being able to slash your taxes in half.  That’s a retirement gamechanger!

So what is the 26(f) Program? And how can you take advantage of it?

Everybody seems to love Graphene, the one-atom-thick sheets of carbon that aren’t just super flexible, harder than diamond, and stronger than steel, but are also able to conduct electricity better than copper.

It’s said the revolutionary material could be used for super-efficient batteries, solar panels, soak nuclear waste and even to detect cancer cells.

But after 13 years since researchers first created the revolutionary material from graphite, consumers is still waiting to see some of the touted applications in the market.

When they actually come, they could change the world as we know it and in this new infographic the folks at 911Metallurgist explain how:

How To Increase Traffic To My Website For Free In 2017

Saturday, January 7, 2017 2:49

(Before It’s News)

website traffic

It’s so easy to get website traffic now, you just have to learn all the right moves and by moves, I am talking about three things: your website, SEO, and advertising. These three are essential if you want to increase the number of people who come visit your website.
First, you need to make sure that your website looks presentable. Let’s face it, most people look at the appearance of an object first. Are the texts too messy? Is it hard to read? Is something covering the content of your post? There are certain factors that can affect if a person likes your website or not. Owning a website means having a lot of competition. There are thousands, maybe even millions of websites that a person can go to if they need anything so you have to make your website stand out. Make sure that you post factual information. Also, check to see if your website is easy to navigate around.  Also, if you already have advertisements on your website, make sure that they aren’t blocking your posts.

Next, this will require a little effort from you, but maybe you can take some time to learn about SEO. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. From the term itself, you will optimize the search engine. Let’s take Google as an example since it is undeniably the most popular search engine as of the moment. Google has standards for the websites that they allow on the search results page. Did you know that Google ranks websites? That’s why some websites can be found on the first page immediately while others are lagging in the back. It is important that you understand search engines. I think, all search engines now have up-ed their game. Google checks every website. They have the technology for this. Little robots will crawl your website and check your content. You have to make sure that what you are writing is true, unless of course, your website is about made up stories. Also, keep yourself in line with the rules Google has put up. It would do you well to be updated with them since Google changes it every now and then.  You don’t want to be accidentally marked as spam. You’d have a hard time ranking up if you do. Everyone aims to be on the first page of Google, since through this, your website can easily be seen.
You can also advertise shamelessly on social media. Don’t be shy! People have to know about your website so that they can visit it, right? So share your blog posts! Create a page! Use tags! Don’t limit yourself. Just don’t use tags that aren’t relevant to your topic.

In 2017 having more traffic on your website will be vital to increase the sales and having a lot more potential clients.
