MANUAL FOR CREATING A COMMUNITY FOOD FOREST ON PUBLIC LAND
I think I'll just use my private property I don't need no commies or blacks stealin my foood
so many rooms now and still no #tradworer for shitposting
@Commander Davis (TWP)
Ya, I would stick to my own land, but the notion is still intriguing.
A channel I can get behind
All berffed frum da erff
This is the best book I have on the topic
I was raising a bunch of animals the past few year, but kept having issues with dogs.
Im just gonna do a massive garden this year, and maybe do a couple pigs again.
I could try to find it. It's more of an encyclopedia than anything
See I'm a forester and homesteading is a major hobby of mine
I would be happy to share my different recipes if there's a way to do so in an organized fashion
As well as some general redneck engineering
This is literally my bathroom sink
Meat is murder
I raised meat rabbits for a couple years...I will say it made me sad when I had to kill em...felt better once they were in muh belly
How much land you on?
A bit over a acre (cleared), but I have a few more acres of woods that are at my disposal
I don't know if that will give you a lot of meat.....
I'm coming down on the 17th. Would you permit me to take a tour of the property? I could show you a couple wild food sources if you like
Unless you've got one of the giant ones the size of a dog.
Ya, Rabbit meat is one of the best meats there is...super high in protein, and their poop is the BEST for composting (u technically dont even have to compost it, as it is so clean).
wish I could come down
I was raising Californian Rabbits, and u actually get a decent amount of meat off of them.
You pretty much kill the kits, as soon as they ween, which will net u a bit of meat, but if u kill a few, then that is plenty for a stew that will last a few days...cleaning rabbits takes only a few minutes, too
Yhea, I doubt you can feed a whole group with just rabbit meat.
That's the first time I have seen discord censor an image.
It just depends how many u raise...the term "fucking like rabbits" doesn't just come outa nowhere.
I started with 3 breeding pairs, and could hardly keep up with all the babies they produced, and keep producing at a constant rate.
Which brings into issue the food supply for them.
I put them in a rabbit tractor, and they just ate my grass...no money required to feed em.
In a what?
Really? I thought you would have had to gotten something like hay.
A bit in the winter, cuz the grass grows slowly, but I let my grass grow super long, before winter hits, so I have an abundant supply during the slowest growing months.
I would be concerned about them getting drenched in freezing cold water if you let them out during the winter.
I say to feed all the rabbits, I probably spent less than $100 a year (I supplemented them with some hay and pellets during the winter).
I covered the top with a tarp.
Winter is no problem for them...the summer can be a bitch...I lost a few to flies one year
Yhea, flies are naturally attracted to shit, and they shit like nothing on earth.
Ya, I would move the cage a couple times a day, and collect the shit for the garden, after I moved it.
What got my rabbits is when they had babies one time, the flies got to em before I knew they were getting attacked.
Wait, have you tried setting up fly net's around the cages so they can't get to them?
I never did...
Mate what the fuck.
I only had a problem one time, out of over 2 years.
That's like being asked to be eaten alive by flies and mosquito's.
Nah, they generally did fine.
We dont have many mosquitoes here...if u live somewhere with a bunch of em, then u probably would need to put up a net.
Yhea, I do.
We also get tons of ticks that have a fairly good chance of having lyme disease as well.
We get ticks sometimes, but the rabbits seemed to be pretty resistant to them...I rarely found ticks on them, and I would handle them all the time, to keep em docile.
During the late summer, and all of fall, the ticks are EVERYWHERE in west NYS.
That sucks...I freaking HATE ticks...the worst are chiggers, though
Little bugs that get under your skin...they are the WORST
I don't think we get them here.
Thank God we dont get em here, either.
I got em BAD in Missouri before, though
"They are not present, or barely found, in far northern areas" HAH.
I'd never live anywhere those things are prolific...they definitely came from to bowels of Hell.
I woulden't doubt that if you purposefully went out into the swamp and dug through all of the mush and dirt in there you could find a few, but they are only prevalent in tropical and very moist area's, which we don't get in NYS.
The only time it get's extremely moist around here is during the summer before a big thunderstorm strikes.
It gets pretty wet here, but we are lucky to not really have em.
Even when I lived in Houston we didn't have them
Who know's, they might become more prevalent as time goes on.
DONT SAY THAT
They will hear u
Ticks were fairly uncommon here, but soon the population exploded and they became very prevalent.
We had a BAD tick problem last year, but we generally dont get them much
I remember I had maps from the CDC that showed the tick population from like 2012 to now, and it shows how much the tick population has grown.
Ill tell u what are spreading across the States, bad, are freaking fire ants.
Sounds like an arizona, california, and texas thing.
They are making their way across the states...they are now popping up in TN.
We got them down in SoIL
@John Mosby I doubt they will make up to NYS though, the climate is too hostile for them.
The species migration is the only thing that really makes me wonder about global warming
It has happened all the time and will continue to do so.
Scientists have said that fire ants will make it all the way up to Alaska, as they are so resistance to the elements.
I knew this hippie that had a theory that the dillas weren't actually moving north and that it was just a conspiracy by the truckers to trick people
My good friend's neighbor was riding his tractor through his field and flipped it onto a fire ant hill, and got pinned...they ate him alive.
Yerp...they actually kill more people than u'd think...mostly kids and people who are allergic, but that was a crazy case.
They were everywhere in Houston...got bit on almost a daily basis.
TWP we homesteadin' again?
Permaculture is the best culture
Would anyone here be interested in me posting some of my herbal tea and tincture recipes in here in a PDF?
Drop that shit nibba
Granted I live in an area with absolutely no real vegetation that isn't SUCCulent or shrub
Cactus tea fam
Aloe isn't native here. It's Junipers, Pancake Cactus, Jumping Cactus, and Oak brush.
Oh and Spanish Bayonets/Yucca
You guys have cedars there?
Do you know the species?
Utah Junipers make up the majority of trees out here. There's a mountain range with a ton of Pinyon Pines near me. Flagstaff has cedars and aspens and such.
We also have Joshua's and Ocotillo
Gay desert shit
The Virgin woodlands VS The Chad Desert
It's actually a high semi-arid region on the Koppen Climate index
We even have Tundra in Arizona 🤔🤔🤔🤔
And the snowiest city in America outside of Alaska
I can't hear you over my HIGH CARRYING CAPACITY
>Not weeding out the weak trough dehydration and sunstroke
>imagine being that cucked
> that feel when probably moving to Hot Desert soon
feels bad man
Fucking havasu \
Don't worry fam. We're gonna take Arizona for the TWP and make it into rich farm land so we can E A T

We eatin ass again?
Should I go at eat again
I think it's chicken nuggets night
Y E S
Just do it. Nike style.
Also I can't tag him because he's got non standard characters in his name, but we've got a leaf in here that's moving down to Arizona soon and he's interested in getting a chapter rolling
What would you do if a Jew entered your homestead?

Hahahahaha is that from something?
Ancap frog fam
Hippity Hoppity get off my property
Love it haha
Pretty sure we've had fire ants in MI since I was a kid
I'm going to try growing hops this summer with my comrade and roommate
Will keep a journal and keep y'all updated
Real cashcrop hours
H i p p i t y h o p p i t y n o j e w s o n m y p r o p e r t y
Hippity Hoppity women are property
I’m in my homestead right now
You can get truckloads of wood chips for free
@John Mosby Mushrooms are not really my thing, but if I am in a survival situation, I would not turn them down unless they made me sick from eating them.
Even if u don't like to eat them (I personally love em), they are very profitable to sell, and they are great for composting.
@Dangerlurking you probably should turn them down, especially in a survival situation. Mushrooms are harder than other plants to correctly identify, so they're dangerous unless you study them/grow them yourself
I almost tried growing P. Cubensis in my closet to make some extra cash
I know the profit margins on THOSE were a bit extreme 😉 i dunno how it is with legal mushrooms
Growing some stuff there?
not yet, still too snowy
eventually though. They have a 5+ year shelf life
Hmm, this makes me wonder, why not construct a greenhouse?
I would be interested looking to it
I mean, it could make farming easier, and you could do it year round, rather than in the warmer half of the year.
Aquaponics greenhouses my dude, most efficient way to do it
Tl;dr on aquaponics, it's combining hydroponics with fish farming. The fish add nitrogen to the water, gets cycled back through the plants. Almost entirely self-sufficient. You can grow duckweed to feed the fish too. Boom, high efficiency gardening using raised beds to maximize sq footage
Can you really use that for 3 square meals a day?
Yeah they’re good for a lot actually
I almost started one with my ex
Just looked into buying a home
It'll be a while
Its got a fence
So I can garden
Despite it being in town
Garden is a must
Keep farm fresh eggs for a whole year with this method.
chickens HATE this guy
Find out how I preserved all my eggs with this one CRAZY trick
Yeah the way I wrote that does seem like one of those shitty online ads.
This is the best channel and nobody uses it
GROW T U R N I P S
I have done that before actually in a suburban environment. Its a very easy and low maintenance crop.
I tried growing crops and I ended up shooting a rabbit that ate said crops in rage... so I had rabbit for dinner, lol.
Growing veggies to catch protein
wranglestar is the shit
I just got tired of the fucker eating my crops
I watched his videos and decided I was going to be a homesteader, I got 6 acres of woods in spring city
Best part about turnips is turnip greens
The first person to call me a nigger is gonna catch these hands
cut through the forest and was like fuck this
now i just go there to shoot guns
@Fuhrerious if you need a fella to work your land I know a guy pretty skills in forest ecosystem management
He's our guy too
@Rock Be careful on eating rabbit. You're probably good rn but in warmer months they have worms
I guess I'm wrong
If you cook it good that wouldn't be an issue right?
Regardless of whether or not it's true
The worm eggs would most likely die, but would you stomach picking the worms out?
Worms is apparently rather false
