Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally Episode-2615- Hydroponics for Preppers and was originally published on March, 9th 2020.
This series of rewinds running from Oct. 19th – 29th will be a skill set based rewind series.
All episodes will be dedicated to improving skill sets and knowledge base.
The following are the original show notes from that episode…
Today the bulk of our discussion will be about hydroponics. We will discuss several different forms of hydroponics, why pumps often do make sense, nutrient choices, best crops to grow and more. We are coming at this from a stand point of how well hydro fits the prepper mindset though, rather than just hydro for the sake of hydro.
