  1. Your best video yet! Your kids and dog are wonderful. There’s a tool, for some reason I think it’s called a broadfork or broadloom, I’m not really sure but it’s used when you plant carrots and supposedly really helps increase the size of them significantly. Please keep up the realism, there too many video game preppers out there.

  2. Potato fruit are poisonous, and only flower after the 2nd year. Potato’s grown from seed are not true to type- i.e. will create new varieties. Not all of which will be edible. Stick to growing from the tubers. They will be viable as “seed” long after they outlive their shelf life as a food stuff. In fact, I leave some in the ground every year, and those do better the next year then ones I plant.

    GET SOME MULCH ON THEM BEDS! Woodchips, Hay, Straw, Grass clippings, any organic plant matter that will slowly decay over time. This preserves soil fertility, retains soil moisture, and reduces weed pressure. Do it right and you can all but eliminate the need to irrigate, add amendments, and weed your garden. Its usually called the Ruth Stout/Back2Eden method. Huglekulture is another cool thing, but for another time.

    I like the Sunchoke. Its a high calorie high nutrient self seeding perennial that you can throw in a back acre somewhere and forget about until you need it, and not easily recognized as say corn. Either that or a persimmon tree. Your favorite fruit tree is worth its weight in gold in the best of times.

    Good luck and keep at it.

  3. Love your channel, came to you by way of Survival Lilly. I grow Potatoes using the ‘Ruth Stout’ no till method, which works very well in a small plot also. You might want to check this out, which uses less prep work, less water, and creates less weeding along with a much easier harvesting.

  4. Rice was a poor example, you can do a lot with rice. Vietnamese soldiers lived off a single small bag of rice for weeks if not months during the vietnam war.. You can mash rice, it is basically starch so you can make noodles with it, make chips with it, crackers with it. You can even make flour from rice and probably do even more with rice than potatoes.
    You should invest in a small hand mill for grinding grains and making flour, etc. You can even get small ones that fit a mason jar you can fill with other things and put in a backpack.
