 Episode-2394- 20 Herbs to Grow in 2019 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:41:08

Anyone that has followed me on TSP for any length of time, knows that I love herbs.  I love them as the medicinal gifts of creation they are.  I love them for the pollinators and predators they attract.  I love them for how the enhance our foods.  I love them for the teas they make.  And I love them simply for how they look and smell on a warm afternoon. Many people seem to think of growing herbs sort of as an after thought.  Or they think of them only in a dedicated space, an “herb garden”. To me they are best planted right with our crops, right in our flower beds and everywhere and anywhere in margins and edges.  Why?  For a few reasons…  It is what nature does, mimicking nature is almost always a good choice  If you want the pollinators and predators in your garden put what attracts them in your garden  As to planting edges and margins, it displaces “weeds” and maximizes productivity  Lastly herbs are tough, many are almost weed like, they can grow almost anywhere   This doesn’t mean I am anti herb garden, I think that is a great idea as well, I just think doing that and more makes a ton of sense.  Today we are going to look at 20 herbs, why I love them, what they do and how to grow them. Join Me Today to Discuss… Why herbs are a “survival topic” The primary uses of herbs Culinary and Teas Medicinal Predator and Pollinator Habitat Filling Spaces before Nature Does Nutrient Accumulators – Mulch – Compost – etc. Twenty Herbs to Consider Growing Comfrey Rosemary Oregano Mints Basil Chives Thyme Parsley Sage Dill Lavender Lamb’s Quarter Culantro Bergamot (Bee Balm) Lemon Balm Garlic (wild and domestic) Plantain Ginger Echinacea (Purple coneflower) Calendula Please note if your favorite herb is not on the list it is not herbal discrimination Final Thoughts   Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com The Granddaddy’s Gun Club MSB Seed Vendors (see the Benefits Section of the MSB for Discount Info) Victory Seeds NE Seeds High Mowing Seeds Eden Brothers Seeds Terroir Seeds Four Part Series on Herbal Action All About Comfrey the Miracle Plant Mint the Plant Anyone Could and Should Grow Traveller on Song Facts Traveller – Chris Stapelton   Sponsors of the Day Ridge Wallet Backwoods Home Magazine   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2389- Becoming a Modern Renaissance Man | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:17:00

We have discussed the concept of becoming a modern renaissance man aka a polymath a few times on feedback shows, but never as a stand alone subject.  I took a walk with the ducks today and was thinking about the vast array of topics we cover on TSP and together we decided it was time to take becoming a polymath to the level of a stand alone topic. I think there are a lot of misconceptions about what a renaissance man really is and for that matter what an expert really is.  We are going to dig into that today.  We are also going to discuss the advantages of becoming a polymath, why it isn’t as hard as many think and why today is the easiest time in history to do so. I also want to talk about why you would want to do this and the advantages it brings into your life.  Most importantly I want to discuss how modern education has made what should be common very rare today. Join Me Today to Discuss… What is a polymath or renaissance man How modern education killed the renaissance man The mindset change you need to become a polymath What is an expert How do you become an expert in a subject (Tim Ferris vs. Jack Spirko) Where polymath Ben Franklin got it wrong with a “Jack of all trades and a master of none” How to determine the subjects and skills you wish to master Separating knowledge, hard skills and competence The disadvantages of being a polymath You can be an expert in a few things but will never be as good as you could in any of them You will get bored with things more quickly and move on to something else all the time Many things that entertain, amaze, surprise others will become pointless to you (largely apathetic) You will most likely need to be an entrepreneur or very fluid in your career goals (not an absolute) You won’t know when to quit at times when it is the best or only option The advantages of being a polymath You will be a problem solver and trouble shooter It will be very difficult for people to bullshit you or take advantage of you You will be adaptable and bring value to others There will always be something you can do in any situation (99% of the time) It gets easier and easier as you go Final Thoughts   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com The Granddaddy’s Gun Club Bullhead Fishing Forum – A new little site I started Binance.com Biltong for Breakfast Find Your TSP Facebook Group for Your State Jeremy on SongFacts Jeremy – Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Metallica Mash Up “Sad But Even Flow”   Sponsors of the Day Safecastle Royal Knife Kits   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

Ben developed Whole Systems Design, LLC as a land-based response to biological and cultural extinction and the increasing separation between people and elemental things. Life as a designer, builder, ecologist, tree-tender, and back country traveler continually informs Ben’s integrative approach to developing landscapes and buildings. His home landscape and the WSD studio site in Vermont’s Mad River Valley serve as a proving ground for the regenerative land developments featured in the projects of Whole Systems Design. Ben has studied architecture and landscape architecture at the graduate level and holds a master’s degree in land-use planning and design. He has conducted more than 300 site development consultations across the US and abroad, and has facilitated dozens of courses on property selection, permaculture design, and resilient systems. He has given keynote addresses and presented dozens of workshops at venues ranging from Bioneers to the Omega Institute. Ben is the author of the award-winning book the Resilient Farm and Homestead (Chelsea Green, 2013). He joins us today to discuss zone 4 permaculture.  Designing managed forests that are designed more for wildlife and foraging then for agricultural purposes.

 Episode-2384- Building Soil Fertility, Biology and Structure in the Garden | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:00:01

Today we are going to focus on soil but strictly from a garden stand point.  There is so much to soil building on broad scale but where you can really do amazing things fast is at the garden scale.  It is in the garden that we can manage by the 4×8 foot bed or even by the square foot. We are going to discuss building soil from a starting point of zero and how that relates to building it in the ground, a raised bed or even large containers.  We are going to discuss mulching, common myths and trouble shooting as well. We will also answer a ton of questions submitted just this morning on both Instagram and Facebook.  This is one reason you really should follow us on social media.  We often take pre show feedback and questions on topics via these outlets. Join Us Today to Discuss… The fast and simple explanation of the “soil life web” When techniques become methods it causes confusion (exp.
