    When you’re experimenting with sprouts and you don’t like the flavor, simply sow/plant them. I wasn crazy about the taste of sunflower sprouts. Now I have sunflowers 😀. I had a hard time sprouting water cress, as the small seeds stuck to the perforated jar lid and I couldn’t rinse them. So I threw the seeds in a bucket with some soil, now I have watercress 😀.

    Good overview of possible options for winter. Def doable! Leafy greens can generally be picked as early as 30-45days ever faster if hydroponics. Micro veggies and dwarf varieties are good for limited space. In the winter depending on how much light ya get idk if a sill would be enough for some veg but worth a try😁🌻

    Seeds can be used hundreds of years even thousands later if stored well. Look at the ancient grains found in Egypt.

    I have a surplus of 275 gallon totes and plan to modify one to see if it can be used like a green house. I have rabbits so by adding their "under the cage" deposits, think some heat will be produced naturally. The top I plan to cut off so it can be replaced. Unless I put too much soil in, I should be able to move it around to take advantage of the sunlight.

    I have seen some micro green set ups on shelving units with grow lights for each shelf. The metal ones with adjustable shelves work best to keep the lights close enough to the plants. You could buy 2 units for extra shelves to maximize your vertical grow space because you only need about a foot clearance for each shelf so your 6′ 5 shelf unit could be a 9 or 10 shelf unit.

    A request; edible garden easiest to grow and one that comes back every year

    Any video that starts with a Bible quote gets a thumbs up from me

    We like to grow greens, scallions, and herbs indoors year round, along with daily sprouting of mung beans, buckwheat, alfalfa, and more. This serves to add fresh vegetables to a diet using dried beans, chickpeas, lentils, quinoa, rices, millet, oatmeal, fish, and eggs to make basic meals and desserts. Millet makes a tasty faux cheesecake. I’m working on a batch of fermented chickpea milk to create chickpea yogurt. I’ve mastered several vegan cheeses to get ready for a dairy free life during an emergency. Aquafaba from a can of cooked chickpeas is an egg substitute for making mayo, in baking, and to bind lentil-sausage or veggie-bean burgers.

    I’m currently in an apartment but was looking at doing hydroponics on a small scale when i get a home of my own

  11. Chris Angeles on October 17, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    there are lots of online sites where you can buy meal-ready-to eat w/ a shelf-life of 5 years or more..

    any recommendation which one?

  12. phillip merritt on October 17, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    I really enjoyed the video on indoor gardening. A lot of good ideas lotta different possible sources. Thank you for the time thank you for the video.

  13. Scott S on October 17, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Great video. Wife started a little indoor shelf with LED full spectrum light from Home Depot- trying lettuce first.

  14. King Trance on October 17, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Your going to have to grow a hell of a lot to really make a big difference. Every little bit helps though.

  15. Jane Parker on October 17, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Great video loved it and plan to go on window seal and see what happens

  16. Carin Wiseman on October 17, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Sprouting in Florida not really viable except in winter.

  17. Ed Gonsorowski on October 17, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Where do you get the paper towel to dry your seeds?

  18. Arman Clark on October 17, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    good content sir!

  19. Grow Strong Industries on October 17, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Great video and very informative! It’s great seeing videos like yours prepping growers for the upcoming season.🌱

  20. Taylor Baxter on October 17, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Can you do a video on prepping with allergies? Specifically allergies to legumes (beans, soybeans, peanuts, peas etc) because it seems many preppers rely on beans heavily for protein in disaster scenarios.

  21. Trish Canyon on October 17, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    I started a garden in my 2 closets. I’m growing potatoes, squash, Brussels, spinach, lentils, tomatoes, pinto, navy and green beans. Never gardened before but I’m learning.

  22. celebmrk9 on October 17, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    I’m thinking the cash crop, then having the capability to afford the rest of the supplies…who’s down with that?

  23. pw4g on October 17, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    So it’s getting in the 19-20’s here. I do have a shed but it stays cold in it too. I have grow lights too. Wondering do I turn a heater on or can I use a heat lamp to warm the shed?

  24. LittleOld Lady on October 17, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Thank you. I have been starting indoor gardening. This House has a multiple skylights that use the sun to light and heat this house. I am going to use the skylight system for indoor gardening. I found seeds on clearance and bought them. I bought a small hydroponic system. I am working on fertilizer. The tomato I am looking into is Tiny Tim for indoor gardening.

    I do have food storage and there are fruit plants and trees that produce fruit every year with little work. There are also nut trees and mushrooms that grow every with little work. There are 2 vegetable plots which require planting every year.

    Indoor gardening will extend the produce year round.

  25. Rodiculous on October 17, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Even though I am not the most outdoorsy person, I always loved growing things, it gives you like a spiritual connection to the earth, the plants become like your pets or children, it is sad when they die

  26. JOAN 256 on October 17, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    I do a quick slice and put in the dirt with little soil on top method for my tomatoes and had a healthy 12 plants to harvest this year. Just put in a small soup dish and leave with watering with a hand water sprayer everyday. Once they start to grow wait around a month or so and transplant into a container and they will grow.

  27. vkarr154 B on October 17, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    This seemed like more of a "what you can do" vid than the "how t" the title suggests. I gave it a like because I do enjoy your vids, but it wasn’t what I expected.

  28. TechMechRandom on October 17, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    I have seeds from 2012 that I still use. I keep them in an air tight metal can in individual bags stored in the refrigerator. They always pop within one to two days of getting them wet.

  29. Stephen Clark on October 17, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Step number one to surviving what’s coming, get OUT of the big cities now! You need to be on your own land, out in the country with your own chickens, goats, water supply, power supply and gardens. If you think you can store food under the bed and somehow eat while millions around you starve, it ain’t gonna happen.

  30. Catherine Abramson on October 17, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Sprouts and winter veggies are coming indoors this fall along with Meyers lemons. I have mylar sheets on the walls of the growing area and grow lights. I tried hydroponics last year without success but try, try again.

  31. Darren Pollok on October 17, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    I am glad you focus so much on skills. That is the one commodity that will be in short supply when things go south.

  32. Daniel Cortez on October 17, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Yo CP, great info as usual

  33. lizardjoel on October 17, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Great video! I’m a new farmer growing indoors legal southern cannabis in Virginia, it is so satisfying and teaches many useful skills i’ve outdoor gardened before and am enjoying the synthetic sun more than I was expecting.

  34. MsLoverofTruth on October 17, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    My cauliflower, spinach, garlic, and onion survived the February winter in Texas. I was surprised, but they like the cold. They tasted great when I harvested them.

    I live in a small house so room is an issue . I used to have tropical fish & enjoyed them but over time they have died for 1 reason or another . I still have the 2 aquariums & got a bit disgusted with my self because it took me several yrs to realize I have 2 " mini green houses" sitting in my living room . I start seeds for spring planting & use them for growing lettuce , radishes , spinach, micro greens , etc. in the winter time . My grown kids thought I was nuts for using them this way but they finally came around & now 1 of them does it also . It doesn’t produce much but it is a good way to supplement what I have to eat. I have been saving seeds for many yrs & when I have to buy seeds I always buy heirloom seeds never hybrids or any that are gmos because they never come back true & produce very little . I also use med to lg wire dog crates because I try to bring in a couple pepper plants to over winter , start maybe 3 green bean plants & a couple other small veggies plants like that for some fresh veggies in the cold mos. The crates keep my 3 cats out of the pots & I can hand a small grow light on the top .

  37. j on October 17, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Last winter I got into sprouting broccoli seeds. For this winter I’ve already begun my first foray into carrot sprouts, green onions, and trying my hand at garlic, sweet potato and onion.

  38. ADAM REES on October 17, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    This was interesting. Have you tried the tilapia farming?

  39. Amy Dahlia on October 17, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    I need more food growing indoors. Ty

  40. Alias on October 17, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    I’ve ordered some lights it’s a start

  41. Gordon Reeder on October 17, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Hydroponic Lettuce. Going after it big time this year. Maybe toss in a fresh basil as well.

  42. THIS IS #MAGA COUNTRY on October 17, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    I try this and every time the DEA says No.

  43. G S on October 17, 2022 at 8:31 pm


  44. StagsMcNasty on October 17, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Will be a good use for my LED lights now that MMJ can now be grown legally in my state.

  45. Nancy Db on October 17, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Very helpful. Thanks.

  46. Posey Perspective on October 17, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Appreciate the scripture!

  47. Arman Clark on October 17, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    i grow indoors every winter 🙂 but its not food… i can adapt for food but currently smoke is more worth my hydro.

    Saving seeds or cuttings best bet to go learn sooner then later.

  50. Rob on October 17, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    I’ve had to up the opsec at my location. Many animals are getting stolen. A lot more drone activity across the fields. I can only assume they are related. My neighbor shot down two last week.
