@Commander Davis (TWP)

Ya, I would stick to my own land, but the notion is still intriguing.

This is the best book I have on the topic

2018-01-31 22:03:38 UTC

Highly recommended

2018-01-31 22:03:43 UTC


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.

2018-01-31 22:04:03 UTC

@Fash Dragon

Can u get that book on pdf?

2018-01-31 22:04:30 UTC

I could try to find it. It's more of an encyclopedia than anything

2018-01-31 22:05:10 UTC

See I'm a forester and homesteading is a major hobby of mine

2018-01-31 22:05:36 UTC

I would be happy to share my different recipes if there's a way to do so in an organized fashion

2018-01-31 22:05:44 UTC


2018-01-31 22:06:51 UTC

As well as some general redneck engineering

2018-01-31 22:10:49 UTC

Meat is murder

2018-01-31 22:11:43 UTC

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

2018-01-31 22:12:43 UTC

How much land you on?

2018-01-31 22:13:08 UTC

A bit over a acre (cleared), but I have a few more acres of woods that are at my disposal

2018-01-31 22:13:50 UTC

@John Mosby Rabbit meat?

2018-01-31 22:14:07 UTC

I don't know if that will give you a lot of meat.....

2018-01-31 22:14:33 UTC

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

2018-01-31 22:14:37 UTC

Unless you've got one of the giant ones the size of a dog.

2018-01-31 22:14:41 UTC


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).

2018-01-31 22:15:11 UTC

@Fash Dragon

Most definitely

U can crash at my place, too, if u want

2018-01-31 22:15:23 UTC

wish I could come down

2018-01-31 22:16:01 UTC

@John Mosby I was hoping so!

2018-01-31 22:16:42 UTC


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

2018-01-31 22:17:27 UTC

Yhea, I doubt you can feed a whole group with just rabbit meat.

2018-01-31 22:18:31 UTC

That's the first time I have seen discord censor an image.

2018-01-31 22:18:46 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 22:19:12 UTC

Which brings into issue the food supply for them.

2018-01-31 22:19:34 UTC

I put them in a rabbit tractor, and they just ate my grass...no money required to feed em.

2018-01-31 22:19:47 UTC

In a what?

2018-01-31 22:20:31 UTC

Really? I thought you would have had to gotten something like hay.

2018-01-31 22:21:19 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 22:21:52 UTC

I would be concerned about them getting drenched in freezing cold water if you let them out during the winter.

2018-01-31 22:22:11 UTC

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).

2018-01-31 22:22:40 UTC

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

2018-01-31 22:23:08 UTC

Yhea, flies are naturally attracted to shit, and they shit like nothing on earth.

2018-01-31 22:24:02 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 22:24:36 UTC

Wait, have you tried setting up fly net's around the cages so they can't get to them?

2018-01-31 22:24:46 UTC

I never did...

2018-01-31 22:24:57 UTC

Mate what the fuck.

2018-01-31 22:25:01 UTC

I only had a problem one time, out of over 2 years.

2018-01-31 22:25:16 UTC

That's like being asked to be eaten alive by flies and mosquito's.

2018-01-31 22:25:59 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 22:26:11 UTC

Yhea, I do.

2018-01-31 22:26:29 UTC

We also get tons of ticks that have a fairly good chance of having lyme disease as well.

2018-01-31 22:27:14 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 22:27:52 UTC

During the late summer, and all of fall, the ticks are EVERYWHERE in west NYS.

2018-01-31 22:28:20 UTC

That sucks...I freaking HATE ticks...the worst are chiggers, though

2018-01-31 22:28:33 UTC


2018-01-31 22:28:58 UTC

Little bugs that get under your skin...they are the WORST

2018-01-31 22:29:27 UTC

I don't think we get them here.

2018-01-31 22:29:56 UTC

Thank God we dont get em here, either.

I got em BAD in Missouri before, though

2018-01-31 22:30:35 UTC

"They are not present, or barely found, in far northern areas" HAH.

2018-01-31 22:31:53 UTC

I'd never live anywhere those things are prolific...they definitely came from to bowels of Hell.

2018-01-31 22:32:46 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 22:33:34 UTC

The only time it get's extremely moist around here is during the summer before a big thunderstorm strikes.

2018-01-31 22:34:27 UTC

It gets pretty wet here, but we are lucky to not really have em.

2018-01-31 22:34:37 UTC

Even when I lived in Houston we didn't have them

2018-01-31 22:34:46 UTC

Who know's, they might become more prevalent as time goes on.

2018-01-31 22:34:53 UTC


2018-01-31 22:35:12 UTC

They will hear u

2018-01-31 22:35:12 UTC

Ticks were fairly uncommon here, but soon the population exploded and they became very prevalent.

2018-01-31 22:35:31 UTC

We had a BAD tick problem last year, but we generally dont get them much

2018-01-31 22:36:19 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 22:36:52 UTC

Ill tell u what are spreading across the States, bad, are freaking fire ants.

2018-01-31 22:37:10 UTC

Fire ants?

2018-01-31 22:38:06 UTC

Sounds like an arizona, california, and texas thing.

2018-01-31 22:51:44 UTC

They are making their way across the states...they are now popping up in TN.

2018-01-31 23:04:29 UTC

@John Mosby you got armadillos there yet?

2018-01-31 23:04:43 UTC

We got them down in SoIL

2018-01-31 23:05:08 UTC

@John Mosby I doubt they will make up to NYS though, the climate is too hostile for them.

2018-01-31 23:07:58 UTC

The species migration is the only thing that really makes me wonder about global warming

2018-01-31 23:09:06 UTC

It has happened all the time and will continue to do so.

2018-01-31 23:11:46 UTC

@Fash Dragon

We had a TON in TX, but haven't seen any in East TN.

2018-01-31 23:12:05 UTC

@John Mosby Tell me about the fire ants.

2018-01-31 23:12:15 UTC


Scientists have said that fire ants will make it all the way up to Alaska, as they are so resistance to the elements.

2018-01-31 23:12:34 UTC


2018-01-31 23:12:44 UTC

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

2018-01-31 23:32:29 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 23:33:35 UTC


2018-01-31 23:34:17 UTC

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.

2018-01-31 23:34:40 UTC

Holy shit.

2018-02-01 00:04:38 UTC

2018-02-01 02:19:50 UTC

You guys have cedars there?

2018-02-01 02:19:56 UTC

Do you know the species?

2018-02-01 02:21:36 UTC

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.

2018-02-01 02:21:54 UTC

We also have Joshua's and Ocotillo

2018-02-02 03:29:38 UTC

You can get truckloads of wood chips for free

2018-02-02 03:34:03 UTC

@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.

2018-02-02 03:35:04 UTC

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.

2018-02-02 03:36:42 UTC

@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

2018-02-02 03:39:38 UTC

I almost tried growing P. Cubensis in my closet to make some extra cash

2018-02-02 03:39:54 UTC

I know the profit margins on THOSE were a bit extreme πŸ˜‰ i dunno how it is with legal mushrooms

2018-02-02 03:41:15 UTC

@Vice Commander Hunt I meant if I KNOW if they are safe.

2018-02-02 03:59:45 UTC

not yet, still too snowy

2018-02-02 04:00:14 UTC

eventually though. They have a 5+ year shelf life

2018-02-02 04:17:26 UTC


2018-02-03 04:32:36 UTC

Hmm, this makes me wonder, why not construct a greenhouse?

2018-02-03 04:35:01 UTC

I would be interested looking to it

2018-02-03 04:38:15 UTC

I mean, it could make farming easier, and you could do it year round, rather than in the warmer half of the year.

2018-02-03 12:56:59 UTC

Aquaponics greenhouses my dude, most efficient way to do it

2018-02-03 13:02:49 UTC

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

2018-02-03 20:53:45 UTC

Can you really use that for 3 square meals a day?

2018-02-03 22:37:06 UTC

Yeah they’re good for a lot actually

Its got a fence

2018-02-03 22:40:57 UTC

So I can garden

2018-02-03 22:41:03 UTC

Despite it being in town

2018-02-03 22:42:00 UTC


2018-02-03 22:42:04 UTC

Garden is a must

2018-02-04 04:37:42 UTC

Keep farm fresh eggs for a whole year with this method.

I have done that before actually in a suburban environment. Its a very easy and low maintenance crop.

2018-03-09 01:18:16 UTC

I tried growing crops and I ended up shooting a rabbit that ate said crops in rage... so I had rabbit for dinner, lol.

I guess I'm wrong

2018-03-09 05:28:16 UTC

If you cook it good that wouldn't be an issue right?

2018-03-09 05:28:32 UTC

Regardless of whether or not it's true

2018-03-09 05:29:17 UTC

The worm eggs would most likely die, but would you stomach picking the worms out?

2018-03-09 07:29:28 UTC

Worms is apparently rather false
