Episode-1481- The Backyard Nursery

Goji Cuttings Rooted in 5 Days Flat!

Goji Cuttings Rooted in 5 Days Flat!

In the last two years I have planted over 400 trees, bushes, vines, etc. on my property.  Right now I have 150 small support trees (locust and autumn olive) waiting to be planted into my food forest.

The sheer variety of what will be budding out and going into full on growth mode in 2015 has me very excited.  There are over 20 varieties of apple, an equal if not higher variety of plumbs, 6 different low chill cherries and more.  I still have to find a home that will meet the needs of 10 bush hazels.

I have even found a spot I call current row and it is now planted with 7 currant varieties, this little sweet spot is perfect to help currants survive my harsh climate.  I have many varieties of autumn olive going like gang busters, three different mull berry species and comfrey nestled down for the winter everywhere.

It has all been a ton of fun, but let me tell you what I have learned during this time…

1.  Plants are trees are fascinating
2.  The variety of what is available in any climate is staggering
3.  Even small spaces can be planted with dozens or hundreds of trees
4.  For every tree you are going to want 10 or more other perennial plants
5.  Finding what you want is often difficult and highly seasonal
6.  The big one, plants and trees are expensive!

This has led me to begin the planning and development of my own back yard nursery.  Today I will discuss that and the things are are currently building and installing.

I will also discuss the opportunity that exists in this space for running your own business and the various ways you can get started.

Episode-1460- The Effective Marketing of a Permaculture Farm with Stefan Sobkowiak

Stefan Sobkowiak  of Miracle Farms

Stefan Sobkowiak of Miracle Farms

Twenty years ago, Stefan Sobkowiak bought a commercial apple orchard with the intention of converting it to an organic orchard. He did just that, but eventually understood the limitations of the organic model originating from monoculture.

He then decided to tear out most of the trees and replant in a way that would maximize biodiversity and yield while minimizing the amount of maintenance required. Inspired by permaculture principles, the orchard now counts over 100 cultivars of apples, plums, pears, cherries, and countless other fruits and vegetables.

Today’s Steven returns to TSP to discuss the multidimensional harvest of a permaculture farm or orchard and how to effectively market the production profitably.

Episode-1433- Developing an Online Business

It has been a long time since I have really dug deep into this topic.  Our mission at TSP is to help people become more self sufficient.  The reality is the biggest systemic dependency most people must deal with is economic dependence.

Economic dependence also leads to a required acceptance of many things you don’t want in your life.  Trading time for dollars is what the labor force is based on.  Yet the entire concept of “labor” is actually disdained by most business owners, even those that treat people very good.  In the end a labor force is an massive expense and a massive source of frustration.

Every business, no matter how well they treat employees is always looking to improve efficiency, at least if it is to survive it is.  Every time I improve efficiency I reduce my need for labor relative to my production.  This means quite literally that business is and has been seeking to design out labor to the highest degree possible for a very long time.

So all while we are told about “job creation” the entire system is based on systemic job elimination.  To be brutally honest, if I am employing 500 people and improved efficiency will let me get rid of 50 I will do so.  Why?  Beyond the capital return, it will let me purge the 10% of the lowest performers from my company.  In the end the 450 will actually be a lot happier.

There is nothing wrong with a job and being an employee, just understand the above is the reality of your existence.  You are employed only because you are either necessary or perceived necessary.  That alone should make most people at least consider either building a business or learning to at least market themselves more effectively.

Episode-1428- Libertas a Virtual Nation

What Would a Virtual Nation be Like

What Would a Virtual Nation be Like

In Episode 1421 I discussed both the Estonian E-Citizen Program and Ecuador’s new Digital Currency and asked a simple question, could digital currencies and the concept of E-Citizenry be used to create a virtual nation.

I think this is a valuable thought experiment and I have some ideas I want to share today.  The goal is to get a discussion going about what can be done, vs. what can’t be done.  What might work vs. why nothing can work.

As part of this I created a forum thread to discuss a Virtual Nation’s Constitution would be like.  There has been some interesting discussion and in particular some clear examples of limited thinking demonstrated in it.  Part of this is my fault, for calling it a constitution.  That framed it in the world of Statism vs. Nationalism.  A better term would have been a Technical Specification.

  • How the economy might work
    • A set amount of contribution to the national reserve is established
    • A new citizen buys something like bitcoin
    • The bitcoin is exchanged for the nations currency
    • The bitcoin or other currency is held as a reserve
    • The two currencies are pegged to a fixed exchange rate
    • Citizens do business in the virtual nation with the nations currency
    • The reserve is a vault that citizens can buy currency from or convert it to an outside currency
    • The action of buying currency is what creates it
    • Yes Bitcoin already does a lot of this, sort of
  • Why do it?
    • As an example

Episode-1418- How Can I Find a Better Way to Make a Living

I am not sure why but I have been hit up with a ton of emails lately asking for career and business advice.  I guess something is stirring up the natural desire for liberty at a higher level and many are seeing their employment for what it is, indentured servitude.

Jobs are not inherently bad things.  I had many jobs over the years.  Some people don’t want to be entrepreneurs they just want a better career and a better place to work.

I find it hard to advise people on this stuff.  Yes I spent a lot of years employee but I have been an entrepreneur for most of my life as well.  Even when I  had a j-o-b I still had some sort of a side business.  I started my first real company in 1998, it is often hard after all those years to advise on both the entrepreneur and employee side of the fence but I will do my best to do so today.

For anyone that wonders if this is a survival topic, I will just say this.  Most preppers get into survivalism because of a fear that something could go wrong and cost them their incomes, their savings, their homes and their happiness if they are unprepared.

Great but if you are miserable now, how happy do you really think you’ll be eating MREs in the apocalypse?  Or, will it matter that only you lost your home due to a lost job and everyone else still has theirs?  Does it make sense to worry about the collapse of a dollar when you barely have any dollars?

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Start with what is good about your current job/business/income
  • Then yes dig into what is bad about it, what you hate
  • Next ask yourself what do I really love to do (focus on doing not the thing)
  • Now find the things that let you do the things you love to do (product)
  • No identify the obstacles to doing what you want to do
  • Develop a plan to leverage what you have to get what you need
  • The key really lies in personal development and confidence
  • No one will give it to you and luck is only what you make of it
  • Those who create reap the greatest rewards and fall the hardest
  • In the end you have to make the choices for yourself

Bob Wells Plant of the Week

Lapins Cherry – Highly adaptable zone 5 to zone 9. – This cherry is one of the few truly self-fertile options, making it ideal for small back yard growers with limited space.  Additionally it only requires 400-500 chilling hours. It is also one of the few cherry trees that can be planted in full sun, even in zone 9 and handle the extreme summer heat in the south, yet cold hardy enough to handle the extreme cold in zone 5. Order this Plant from Bob Wells

Episode-1385- Fishing with a Air Cannon? Yep!

Reach Out 3 Football Fields with the Sand Blaster

Reach Out 3 Football Fields with the Sand Blaster

An avid shore fisherman, Dan Triano of New Ringgold, PA became frustrated with not being able to get his bait out past the sand bar where the big fish are. One day, he and his buddy were talking about how best to get their bait REALLY out there. That is when the idea for the, Sand Blaster Bait Caster was born.

This is a fishing apparatus that launches bait up to 300 yards out into the ocean from the shore. That’s right….that’s THREE FOOTBALL FIELDS!

I wanted to bring Dan on for a few reasons today.  First I just thought it was a cool and fun topic and unlike anything we have ever really talked about.  I also know many of you enjoyed the fishing series and this is kind of a bonus show for that series.  Lastly this is also the story of a person creating a business with an actual unique product from the ground up.

To be totally blunt, after this episode I want one!  Frankly I am buying one and I am going down to the Texas coast with it and filling up a chest with some awesome blacktip steaks!  Finally adding to it the fact the Dan lives about 15 miles from where I went to high school is just icing on the cake!

Join Dan and I Today as we Discuss…

  • Why did you come up with this idea
  • What is the benefit of this system compared to other systems
  • What is the larger goal of Dan’s company and product
  • Who is using this product and what have the results been
  • What kind of media coverage has this attacked
  • What kinds of fish can be caught with the Sand Blaster
  • Thoughts on tagging, catch and release and reasonable harvest
  • Where can you fish with the Sand Blaster Bait Caster
  • Is the Sand Blaster in bait shops

Episode-1383- The Forest Market Garden Concept

Last week I did Episode 1379- The Profitable Small Acre Homestead and it seemed to be a pretty big hit.  Today’s show continues on that theme.  The reason I bring this up is 1379 has some business components that apply here and I will not be rehashing many of them, so to get the most from today’s show you may wish to listen to 1379 first if you have not already done so.

With 1379 fresh in my mind I was turned on to a book called, The Market Gardner by Jean-Martin Fortier.  I am currently reading it but one thing that struck me was the constant need for bed prep, soil amendments, seed and plant starting, heavy irrigation, etc.  And this is a book that promises to reduce work by “going small and focusing on intensive production and quality”.  Frankly it still sounds like a ton of work to me.

My view is a perennial style system while taking longer to yield is a lot less ongoing work and requires a lot less ongoing expense and inputs.  So today I am examining this concept in a live thought expirment.  Many of the concepts you have seen developed at TSP came via this type of thinking and planning and many other ideas never made it though the tunnel to the other side.

Hence, today’s show is not a statement of what will work, or even well planned.  It is just what I claim a thought experiment with a lot of work left to be done, but it is one I believe is highly valid and may in fact empower many homesteaders in the future to become profitable on small blocks of land ranging between 2-5 acres.  Perhaps even less.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • Why this approach
  • What is the downside
  • What are some of the biggest challenges
  • How might you reduce establishment costs
    • Establish a “beach head” with most planned varieties
