I’m in my homestead right now

John Mosby 2018-02-02 03:29:38

You can get truckloads of wood chips for free

Dangerlurking 2018-02-02 03:34:03

@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.

John Mosby 2018-02-02 03:35:04

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.

Vice Commander Hunt 2018-02-02 03:36:42

@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

Fevs 2018-02-02 03:39:38

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

Fevs 2018-02-02 03:39:54

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

Dangerlurking 2018-02-02 03:41:15

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

Dangerlurking 2018-02-02 03:59:06

Growing some stuff there?

Vice Commander Hunt 2018-02-02 03:59:45

not yet, still too snowy

Vice Commander Hunt 2018-02-02 04:00:14

eventually though. They have a 5+ year shelf life

Dangerlurking 2018-02-02 04:17:26

Nice.

Dangerlurking 2018-02-03 04:32:36

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

Fash Dragon 2018-02-03 04:35:01

I would be interested looking to it

Dangerlurking 2018-02-03 04:38:15

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

Vice Commander Hunt 2018-02-03 12:56:59

Aquaponics greenhouses my dude, most efficient way to do it

Vice Commander Hunt 2018-02-03 13:02:49

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

Mike_The_Monsta 2018-02-03 20:53:45

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

FashyGoy1488 2018-02-03 22:37:06

Yeah they’re good for a lot actually

FashyGoy1488 2018-02-03 22:37:16

I almost started one with my ex

FashyGoy1488 2018-02-03 22:37:36

Aquaponics OP

Fash Dragon 2018-02-03 22:37:55

Just looked into buying a home

FashyGoy1488 2018-02-03 22:38:42

Dude nice

FashyGoy1488 2018-02-03 22:38:51

Good luck

Fash Dragon 2018-02-03 22:38:51

It'll be a while

FashyGoy1488 2018-02-03 22:38:57

Yeah same

Fash Dragon 2018-02-03 22:40:46

Its got a fence

Fash Dragon 2018-02-03 22:40:57

So I can garden

Fash Dragon 2018-02-03 22:41:03

Despite it being in town
