Simple Rain Barrels Save Fresh Water

Simple Rain Barrels

Simple Rain Barrels

Want to know how you can save lots of fresh water? Well, with a rain barrel or two or maybe ten you can. Yes you can save many gallons of water for free. Its easy to do because once you have the barrels hooked up you don’t have to do anything but use the free water. And use it for your vegetable gardens to get the most benefit from it. I use mine in the greenhouse to water my vegetables. This saves a lot of money. I also use it around the yard for many of the bamboo plants that I grow. I mean it is free so why not use it for things I usually water with the hose. I have a lot of plants to water and I use a lot of water to do it. Just what I use in the greenhouse is probably around 2000 gallons a year. That can get kind of costly using the hose. I just use the riding mower and trailer to haul the water where I need it. It makes things a lot easier. Or I use the hose from the rain barrel on the side of the house. I probably fill it 4-5 times a year. Because it catches all the water from the driveway. So it fills up fast. And I use it the most because it has a hose on it. This makes watering easy with simple rain barrels.

Simple Rain Barrels Can Make You Money

I traded someone a nice huge clump of bamboo for 35 barrels. Threw a spigot in them and sold every one for $35 a piece.  Which was a nice tidy little profit. Of course I didn’t sell them all right away but the money still came in handy. And I did spend $5 on each spigot so it wasn’t all profit. But that is just another way to sustain myself and help pay the bills. The free water is nice an if there is ever an emergency. I have plenty of water. I would still boil this water before drinking it but you get the picture. The more simple rain barrels you have catching the water the more you have in storage. In fact my simple rain barrels account for several thousand gallons of water each year and I love every drop of it. Like me I have at least 500-4000 gallons of water on hand in the spring, summer and fall. I have it in the winter too, but its frozen so it would need to be thawed before using but its still there if I need it. I like know that I have all this water on hand. And they are simple to build just drill a hole close to the bottom of the barrel. Slightly smaller than the spigot. Screw in spigot by hand and its done. Take the cap off and run your downspout into the top of it. And you are done. Attach a garden hose to the spigot and you are ready to go. And that is how you build simple rain barrels.

Saving Money By Providing For Yourself Is What Sustainability Is All About

Anywhere you can cut corners or provide for your own needs by using what is already there for you is a plus. Saving money using simple rain barrels is a must for me. I couldn’t even begin to afford all the water I use gardening for money. Gardening is how I get most of the money I make. Bartering is also a great way to sustain myself. You get what you need and someone else gets what they need. It works out great for both parties. Bartering barrels worked out best for me, but the customer got what he wanted too. We were both happy. An neither one of us spent a penny. So get out there and build your simple rain barrels today.

Growing Bamboo To Sustain Myself

Growing bamboo to sustain myself has many great opportunities for me to grow the materials I will need in the future. It is already used extensively around the house and garden. Even in the greenhouse. Without it I would buying a lot more wood. Which money you won’t have if things go south. You can literally make almost anything from bamboo. And many things I have made from bamboo. I sell the plants, I sell the roots. I could even sell the shoots. I can sell the canes.

Growing Bamboo To Sustain Myself

Growing Bamboo To Sustain Myself

I can make products out of the canes and sell them too. If you are a survivalist you simply must grow this plant for all of its many uses. Growing bamboo to sustain myself is a great way to get your natural resources fast. Did you know that bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world. It is and if you maintain it properly you can have an ongoing supply of lumber for the rest of your life.  And I can teach you how to do that. We carry starter packages and large field dug divisions as well. My contact number is (859)242-1602 Jeff Gabelman call me if you need more information about getting started today.

Growing Bamboo To Sustain Myself With Free Materials To Build With

After you initial investment its free. You can start with a very small plant. Or to get a really fast start get one of our field dug divisions and be producing large culms(canes) in just 2 years. We have all sizes at unheard of prices. We can make you a great deal and even guarantee the plants for 2 years. After you have an established grove you can start selling and building the same things I do for free. It takes a little time to get started, but after you get it in the ground it takes almost no effort to grow. It gets a little tough to dig the bigger it gets, but to me its worth it to have free product to sell. This plant has changed my life in ways I could never dream of and I will never turn back either. It has become my passion, my way of life and I couldn’t even imagine my life without it now. If everyone felt the same way I do this would be a very different country. After I buy a new bamboo species I grow it for a few years before I sell any of it. This way I know if I can trust the plant to live through the winter. Once I know more about the plant I can then market and sell this plant. By the time I sell one or two of the new species the rest is pure profit. And something that needs very little attention is just making me money on its own. What other product does that all for you. When it comes time to sell just dig it up, put it in a pot and sell. Pure 100% profit. It has been a while since I posted last because I have been so busy with the bamboo and gardening business. So growing bamboo to sustain myself is one of the greatest ideas I have ever come up with.

Basic Survival Techniques

Basic survival techniques are your ability to grow, catch and hunt for your food. The process can take many years to achieve or if you’re good at it, it may only take a year. But being able to grow your own food is a big part of survival. Fresh organic vegetables make up a healthy diet. And the cheaper you can grow these vegetables the more money you’ll have to use on other things you need. I mean basic survival methods can cost next to nothing if done correctly. I am the type of person who hates to pay for anything, especially if I can build it myself for free.

Basic Survival Techniques

Basic Survival Techniques

Just like I have done with my gardening business. I have come a long way in my business that I started from zero dollars. But every year I build more and more of the cheapest methods and now I’m making good money at it. I love every single minute of it. I love running my own business the way I want to run it. In the process I am also growing great healthy food for my family and the families of those around me who take advantage of our very reasonable prices.  Basic survival techniques are used in many of my everyday operations and in fact they run my business, Like the ability to catch hundreds and hundreds of gallons of rain water when it rains. I use probably 20 gallons of water a day to water my greenhouse plants and I don’t pay 1 cent for it. Now that is basic survival techniques 101. You must have water to survive.

Basic Survival Techniques Somewhere To Grow Your Vegetables

Mine is in my homemade greenhouse. Where I can lock out the animals who like to eat my great plants. Then I actually get to eat the vegetables that I grow. The poor animals are being pushed into our yards to feed themselves and they will eat everything to the ground. At my house they don’t get that option.  Because I just close the door on my greenhouse. This is what gardening is coming to. Where you are going to have to start growing indoors to keep the animals from eating everything. I am so happy with my greenhouse that I am doubling the size.  With that being said I am also going to double my yield and my profits.

Gardening 101 Getting Back To The Basics

Gardening has many different meanings to many different people. But to me it means providing for my family first. And then from there it takes on other meanings. Money comes next. Gardening can and does make you money. There are many ways to make money gardening. You can sell plants, fish, vegetables, roots, seeds, trees, and shrubs. Flowers and even your own home-made soil. Gardening many different ways gives you many different options. Greenhouse gardening can take this even farther and farther. With the use of a greenhouse you can extend your growing seasons a lot longer. With this advantage you can grow many different plants that you wouldn’t normally grow. Like root crops. I’m growing a lot more than I was last year. I am going to use every bit of space I can this year.

Gardening Basics

The old gardening basics still work best for me. And I have found this is also the cheapest method. I use organic soil, fresh rain water brewed into compost tea. Just started using it the other day.

Gardening 101

Gardening 101

It has already made a huge difference. I used to use just rain water but I decided to try this out. I am really liking the way its working. I’m hooked because it has made a big difference in just 4 times of being watered with it. I’m shocked actually. I’ll never go back now. I’ve got a super growth potion here. I will not give up the recipe either. It’s crazy you wouldn’t believe your eyes if you saw it. All organic. You can’t go wrong when growing organic. The taste of the fruits and vegetables will be unmatched. It will be worth every ounce of sweat that went into growing the vegetables. This all goes true for any plant you grow.

Gardening Essentials

The gardening essentials are good soil, fresh water, great seed and pure sunlight. If you have these and and the heart to work that soil, you have the makings of a great garden. Gardening can be fun and easy. The thing I love most about gardening is there is no deadline. When it grows we will have it. When it ripens we will eat it. When we eat it we will truly enjoy it! If you grow it yourself you will taste the love that went into growing it. That’s what really makes it taste so good. The time you put into growing and maintaining it. This year I will grow corn in my greenhouse. I tried once before but didn’t have much luck. This year things are going to be different. I just know it. With the new watering system things are gonna get crazy. Gardening can be fun and profitable for people of all ages.

Garden Ideas Anything Goes

When #garden ideas come to mind you should implement them. After all there are no rules when it comes to garden design. Only your own satisfaction matters. To me its more about functionality more than garden design. Because I don’t really care that much about what it looks like so long as it produces what I need. And what I need is a way to provide my family with the fruits and vegetables that we need. And the ability to make some extra money from the plants I grow. I grow my plants for many different reasons. Not just for food. They also provide me an income so I can get the things I need and can’t grow myself. So bartering does come into play many times. After all I always grow more than I need so I can share with other members of my family. And sell plants to help others get started. I offer these plants for cheaper than the chain stores and all my plants are grown organically. That way I am sure of my family getting fresh healthy vegetables with no additives if you know what I mean.

Garden Ideas Simple But Effective

Garden Ideas

Garden Ideas

Garden ideas come from your past gardening experiences. We all remember gardening with our parents and grandparents. Those were the best of times. I wish I could re-live just one day from my past.  I would choose a day when I was gardening with my father or grandfather. I so miss those times. They both used only basic garden ideas and always did well. Green Beans, Tomatoes, potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, corn, peas, carrots, cabbage and many more. Man those were the days. I can remember my favorite part was picking the vegetables and bringing them home. Garden ideas come from the heart. If you put your heart in your garden ideas you will achieve greatness. It is worth every ounce of sweat. My favorite garden ideas are probably due to my greenhouse. because i can garden all year long in there.

Garden Ideas Can Make You Money

Here is what I mean when I say #garden ideas can make you money. I put in a water garden in the front yard. I also put in a waterfall. The water fall is strategically placed so that people can see it from the road. This plus a water lily sign in the front draws attention to my water plant business. And believe me when I say it gets sales. So from a few simple #garden ideas I can make money from it. I always use simple #garden ideas to get the best effects.

Starting Seeds Early Indoors

Believe it or not now is a great time to think about starting seeds indoors. For the vegetable plants you are planning on growing this year in your gardens. It gives them plenty of time to get going and get a good root system going right from the get go. The bigger the root system the better chance the plant has to make it outdoors. Just make sure that you harden the plant off before putting it straight outside. What I mean is gradually introduce the plant the outdoor weather

Starting Seeds

Starting Seeds

. Each day take the plant outdoors for just a little while. Put it in a protected spot, not full sun. Gradually exposing it to more outdoor temperatures until you can fully leave it outdoors. Starting seeds indoors gives you perks that you don’t have outside. Like the ability to add light, water, bottom heat and humidity.  Starting seeds has other advantages like the ability to organically control it’s entire growth from germination to death. That’s big really big. Being able to control these factors is awesome. You can control how the plant grows, how tall it gets and how wide it gets.

Starting Seeds Now Be Producing Early

By starting seeds  now your plants will be far along by the time it gets warm outside and they will be ready to produce vegetables very early. Early enough to grow two different crops this year. That’s one of the joys of having a greenhouse. Which is now one of my favorite methods of gardening now. Because a greenhouse helps me in many ways with my gardening. For one it lengthens the growing season on both ends by about 2 months. So that means about 4 extra months of gardening. And for a gardener that is great time I can use wisely. I have something growing in there all year long. And during the cold winters I store many different plants in pots in there. I heat it slightly it stays about 20 degrees warmer in there.
