 Episode-2608- Common Sense Virus Preps and Micro CSA Crops | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:42:15

I need to talk about Corona Virus and I want to talk more about my idea for micro CSAs as well.  So while they are not highly related, I am going to do both and honestly the things you should be doing for Corona Virus won’t take me that long to cover. I have said many times to not panic about Corona Virus and your basic preps you should have in place already will be for most people all you need.  This has led to a misconception that I consider it to be nothing, it isn’t nothing but it also isn’t that much bigger or a threat than the flu often is.  We need balance and common sense here.  So I will cover that today. Next up the thing you should be doing more than anything else right now is systems for self sufficiency and or systems for income.  Growing food is one way to do one, the other or both.  So I have been learning a lot with my hydroponics projects this winter, and while I don’t think I would run a business only on hydro, it would be one part of it, so we will look at it from that angle today. Part One – Corona Virus – AKA Kung Flu Common sense preps are all you can really do 2-3 weeks of stored food (30 days is better) At least 30 days on hand of maintenance drugs Reserve water but it is highly unlikely your water will be shut off A good multi vitamin even if you don’t normally take them Hygiene products in reserve Some misconceptions and some possible alternative solutions N95s filter at .3 microns, novel corona virus is about 1.5 microns Any mask with an anti viral essential oil may be somewhat effective Some research indicates Quercetin may be a valid treatment Remember you can order food online, Amazon Fresh, Thrive Market, etc. I know it is stupid to hear it over and over, but yes wash your hands Above all don’t panic and stop listing to anyone pushing fear based bullshit on this   Part Two – Ideas for Vegetable and Herb Varieties for a “Micro CSA” First again it really isn’t a CSA but I don’t know what else to call it The keys to making this work are Keep work to a minimum Keep freshness to a maximum Have the stuff people use anyway Also have stuff people can’t get anywhere Create seasonal variations and sell that with your marketing Have some things you can always up production on quickly if you need to Make crops do double or triple work for you Train your customers to do some of the work Some crops I will definitional include if I do this… Fennel Ginger Red Veined Sorrel Celery (pink if I can find the right seed source) Chard (in many colors) Three texture/colors of lettuce Arugula Wasabi Arugula Basil (multiple varieties) Micro Greens – Broccoli, Borage, Radish, Cress, Sunflower, etc. Purple Bok Choi Kale Dill Cucumber Peppers Tomatoes Water Cress Nasiturm Horse Radish Wild Edibles Some 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 Quercetin on Amazon We Got This – A Day to Remember   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2607- Curtis Stone on Living Free on the Land | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:05:43

Curtis Stone and I discuss a variety of subjects today all involving achieving as much liberty in your life as you possibly can.  This includes why Curtis has moved on from commercial farming, his new podcast called Liberty on the Land.  Using law to avoid compliance with other laws,  Setting up trusts and more. We also discuss the continued erosion of quality of life in the cities and the lunacy of the “social justice” crowd.  We talk about strategic relocation, the scale of permanence and lifestyle design. We then dig into potential solutions to many of the current problems like virtual nations, partnering with tribal nations and more.  We even cover some of the technological and economic flux that is coming down on us like freight train.

 Episode-2606- Topic Round Table Discussion with Nick Ferguson | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:59:14

Nick Ferguson is in Texas as part of a consultation tour and spending a few days at Nine Mile Farm.  We were sampling some amazing rum last night along with some far too good martinis and started talking about a variety of subjects.  With Nick and I of course that involved fish tanks and aquatic systems but we also started talking plants, plant propagation, the concept of micro CSAs, planning for an eventual economic shift and more. It all sounded pretty good after a second drink anyway so we figured it might still sound good today, we shall see about that.  ;>) So join Nick and I today as we discuss… Nicks new nursery business and progress on his launch sale The concept of a micro CSA and is that the right names since I don’t really mean a CSA Seeing homesteading as an investment, ie planting trees that gain value over time, etc. Why this may be the most important time in history to take and entrepreneurship path What to look for in a property and how it relates to your long term goals The importance of living frugally and eliminating debt Not letting perfect be the enemy of the good with technologies like say hydroponics The role of animals for homesteaders and keeping them “profitable” even if you don’t sell them What the next 5-10 years look like, may be and definitely at the same time   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 Rare Plant Store The Middle on Song Facts The Middle – Jimmy Eat World   Sponsors of the Day Ridge Wallet J.M.

 Episode-2602- Kinder Goats on the Homestead with Roger McDowell | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:33:18

Roger grew up on a small family farm in central Kentucky. His working class parents taught him the value of a strong work ethic from a young age. They grew/raised much of what they ate from a variety of livestock and a big garden. They also sold some of their excess produce on the side. Roger was accepted into the US Naval Academy after high school and graduated with an engineering degree in 1981. Upon graduation he took a commission in the United States Marine Corps. After completing flight training at NAS Pensacola he spent the next seven years flying the CH-46 Sea Knight for the Marines from carriers around the world. After leaving the Marines to spend more time with his growing family he spent the next twenty-seven years working in manufacturing management, eventually moving back to central Kentucky. He dabbled in gardening and small livestock until retiring from his job in 2015. He then purchased a much larger farm, built a house, and now focuses on homestead farming and running a small home based business. He raises Waygu beef cattle, dairy goats, chickens, rabbits, quail, bees, and occasionally Tilapia in his pond. He also tends a garden, and enjoys cooking, canning, and preserving. Roger Joins us today to discuss kinder goats, which in his words are “the perfect goat for the homestead”.

 Episode-2601- 6 Underrated Old School Rifle Cartridges | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:20:27

I can hear some of you already, “hey Jack you big jerk, just read those bullet point below, three of em are pistol rounds”.  Simmer down there partner you will find examples of rifles firing all of them below.  And as we will discuss today, they are all in a way “different rounds” when fired from a rifle then when fired from your 4 inch wheel gun. Anyway I have been thinking that we have not done a lot of stuff on guns lately.  If you are new to firearms or new to ballistics and components you may want to listen to yesterdays Rewind Episode here before this one. The key here is new super duper rounds keep coming out all the time.  The way the gun magazines and blogs write about them you’d think deer now wear body armor and that our grandfathers were hunting with cap guns.  But I am here to tell you, the old, boring, strait body rounds are just as deadly as they have ever been.  They cost little to reload, are reliable as can be and they don’t beat you up on a full range day.  Okay the 45-70 can beat you up, but the key is, it doesn’t have to. Today we discuss these old reliable rounds, what they are best for, some of the available guns that are still chambered for them, reloading for them and more. Join Me Today to Discuss… Why bother with old school rounds when so many new ones are out there The wisdom of deer hunting WWII vets, if it kills a deer, its all you need What is a long range round anyway The case for cast lead and why all these round do great with it What makes these rounds great for reloading and learning to do it Why some new hunting regulations are bringing these old rounds back in new/old guns Before we get into these, many can be fired in shotguns with gun adapters (as 38spc, 44spc and 45LC) ` 6 Great Old Rounds and Rifles that Chamber them ` 22 hornet – Introduced 1930 Ruger 77/22 Savage 25 CZ-USA 527 30-30 – 1895 Henry Lever Guns Henry Single Shot Marlin Lever Guns Mossberg 464 Lever-Action Ruger #1 H&R Handi Rifle 357 Magnum – Introduced 1935 Marlin Lever Guns Henry Lever Guns Rossi Lever Guns Henry Single Shot Ruger 77/357 44 Magnum – Introduced 1955 Marlin Lever Guns Henry Lever Guns Ruger 77/44 CVA Scout – Hunter Traditions Outfitter G2 45 Long Colt – Introduced 1872 Marlin Lever Guns Henry Lever Guns Rossi circuit judge Taurus Thunderbolt – No longer made NEF Survivor 45LC/410 Shot Shells Taylor’s & Co.

 Episode-128- TSP Rewind – Understanding Caliber, Millimeter, Gauges and Ballistics | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:27:11

Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes. Today’s episode was originally Episode-855- Understanding Caliber, Millimeter, Gauges and Ballistics and was originally published on March 8th, 2012. The following are the original show notes from that episode.. When I stated I wanted to do some more shows on firearms topics I was flooded with emails by new shooters that all basically said some version of this… “Jack can you do a very basics style show that explains what all these calibers and rounds mean. Sometimes when you are talking about a firearms subject I am fine then you start saying something like the 38 special is 35 caliber and I just don’t get it. Or that a 40 S&W is equivalent to a 10mm in a carbine. None of this makes sense, please help.” The 30-06 is the Father and Grandfather of Many Rounds Often I feel that those of us who grew up reading gun magazines and shooting our entire lives forget how long it took for us to actually “know what we know”. My hope today is to condense this stuff into an hour long show in a way that will make sense to newbie. I also hope that those of you who know this stuff will gain a better understanding of how to explain it to others. Just because you know something doesn’t mean you know how to teach it. One thing I can promise you is that even if you are brand new to shooting and ballistics after today you will likely want to pull your hair out the next time you hear some idiot behind the counter at a sporting goods store giving out advice. Join me today as we discuss… Cartridge vs. case vs. bullets What happens when you pull the trigger Rim fire vs. center fire What is a caliber What is the difference between millimeters and calibers What is a gauge What are some common caliber to millimeter equivalencies What actually does the killing when it comes to a gun shot wound Power mythology – real numbers from real shootings What is “sectional density” What is “ballistic coefficient” How “new” rounds usually come into existent The effects of longer barrels on handgun rounds Choosing a round is not as hard as people try to make it   Resources for Today’s Show Members Support Brigade TSP Gear Shop Join Our Forum Video of the Version of Allentown I Played The Original Video of Allentown (really drives home the “American flag in our face” line) Clip I played from the movie “The Graduate”   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

Join me today as we discuss… What “closing the factories down” was actually like Why unemployment was a national problem but worse in the coal and steel regions What the song means when talks about “weekends at the Jersey shore” The “restlessness” that was handed down “Graduations hang on the wall” today they are college degrees vs. high school diplomas The multiple broken promises that generation experienced What “filling out forms, standing in lines” means to us today What “hard to stay” is really all about The true nature of the WWII generation post war prosperity How “one word plastics” from the movie “The Graduate” relates to this song What “the threw and American flag in our face” was all about How the “flag in the face” relates to today How this song is really about one of the massive shifts in the world How this generation got caught in this shift Some of the other massive shifts on the past 200 years The real nature of the current shift   Lyrics of the Song Allentown Well we’re living here in Allentown And they’re closing all the factories down Out in Bethlehem they’re killing time Filling out forms, standing in line Well our fathers fought the Second World War Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore Met our mothers at the USO Asked them to dance, danced with them slow And we’re living here in Allentown But the restlessness was handed down And it’s getting very hard to stay Well we’re waiting here in Allentown For the Pennsylvania we never found For the promises our teachers gave If we worked hard, if we behaved So the graduations hang on the wall But they never really helped us at all No they never taught us what was real Iron and coke, chromium steel And we’re waiting here in Allentown But they’ve taken all the coal from the ground And the union people crawled away Every child had a pretty good shot To get at least as far as their old man got Something happened on the way to that place They threw an American flag in our face Well, I’m living here in Allentown And it’s hard to keep a good man down But I won’t be getting up today And it’s getting very hard to stay And we’re living here in Allentown Resources for Today’s Show Members Support Brigade TSP Gear Shop Join Our Forum Video of the Version of Allentown I Played The Original Video of Allentown (really drives home the “American flag in our face” line) Clip I played from the movie “The Graduate”   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2599- Kurt Dugger on Paraglider Adventures and the Dark Horse Lodge | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:05:30

Kurt Dugger is a Former Infantry Marine turned paramotor pilot who decided to fly across the state of Tn to raise awareness and funds for The Darkhorse Lodge near Paris Tn.  Gretchen and Kirk Catherwood decided to start a retreat for combat veterans after losing their son (also a Marine) in Afghanistan.  To raise funds Kurt embarked on what he named, The Darkhorse450 an attempt by a low time pilot to cross TN using only a paramotor. His paramotor is a roughly a lawn chair with a propeller suspended under a fabric paraglider wing. He didn’t make it all the way on his first attempt but it was a hell of an adventure. Kurt’s effort raised a little over $3000 during the attempt.  He did this because he feels the Darkhorse Lodge might be one of the best tools to prevent veteran suicide he’s ever seen. It’s a group of 6 room cabins set back in the woods of TN. Guys can stay for free, build relationships with others and learn how to come home home again.   Kurt joins us today to discuss this worthy cause.

 Episode-126- TSP Rewind – Using Logical Methods and Function Stacking for Decision Making | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:34:13

Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes. Today’s episode was originally Episode-1707- Using Logical Methods and Function Stacking for Decision Making and was originally published on Jan 12, 2016. The following are the original show notes from that episode.. Yesterday’s show ran a theme of a penny saved is a tax free penny earned and how that compounds when invested outside the systems of taxation. I love this sort of individual liberation thinking. Then today I answered a question about a stove I mentioned last week. You can read about that here on the Nine Mile Farm Blog. The Most Powerful Computer in the World, but Only if Used. The basic take away is often you can acquire multiple items instead of an “all in one item” in doing so you will reduce or keep your cost the same while gettting greater functionality, flexibility, performance and redundancy. While some of this is common sense, it benefits us to look deeper than that. The reason is common sense is the application of knowledge. Most of us know it is common sense to use a Phillips screw driver on a Phillips screw, but if you didn’t know it existed, you would likely make best use of the most usable strait screw driver. To apply common sense the knowledge in that situation must be sufficient for the question or problem. And at times we can ask ourselves questions to remind us of what we know or help us to see what we do not know, so we know how to research the additional required knowledge. Join Me Today to Discuss… Why common sense isn’t so common How common sense is applied Evaluate the situation Consider the things you know Extrapolate what you don’t know based on knowledge and experience Proceed accordingly The question of a stove top vs. a stove top and oven and where it leads My new quail aviary and how it stacks functions but uses multiple components How to apply this thinking in your life Think before you act Do an elements analysis for most decisions Find ways that one thing or action can be multiplied How this leads to liberty Small actions alone are not enough to win the fight Properly assembled several small actions multiply their effect Waiting for a law to change may result in being old and dead first There is always a solution to almost any problem, people just get mentally lazy The fact that most are mentally lazy is an advantage for those who are not Every person is smart, but that is not enough Give three people a tool kit, compare the results It is about motivation, desire and application What you don’t design and control will be provided for you Final Thoughts   Join the MSB Today Want Every Episode of TSP Ever Produced?

 Episode-125- TSP Rewind – 21 Unique Things I will be Growing this Year | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:29:08

Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes. Today’s episode was originally Episode-2142- 21 Unique Things I will be Growing this Year and was originally published on Jan 9, 2018. The following are the original show notes from that episode.. Time for a fun show looking ahead to when all the ice and danger of heavy frost is gone. Last year I found some new gems and this year I am planning major grow bed expansion so I have found some new ideas and some old favorites to add to the 2018 planting list. Basically if you are a Gardner or grower or plant geek, today is a bit of plant porn for the winter cabin fever blues. I will be providing a link for all seeds, some will be to companies that are MSB partners, some to companies that offer things our partners do not and some even to Amazon or eBay because you just can’t get them any other way. My view with growing plants for food has always followed this guidelines in no particular order… Grow what you like to eat Grow what is expensive to buy Grow what you can’t buy or is hard to find Grow things that store well with little to no effort Grow things that are perennial or that self seed Grow things with more than one use Grow things that have little disease/pest pressure Grow honey badger plants (plants that just don’t give a shit) Grow things that allow you to interplant in layers Try a few new/weird things each year Grow things that are “super foods” Japanese Purple Sweet Potato and Cubanelle Peppers in my Aviary. Look any one of those is enough reason for me to grow something, frankly “because I effing feel like it”, is enough reason but the more check marks something gets, the more interested in growing it I become. Join Me Today As I Discuss… Why grow more than just the usual suspects My plant starting set up for this year Things I plant to grow this year and why Cubanelle Peppers – link Datil Peppers – link Lemon Drop Peppers – link Habnada Pepper – link Corbaci Pepper – link Hairy Gourd – link White Flowered Gourd – link Bitter Mellon – link Mouse Mellon – link Scarlet Runner Beans – link Red Noodle Beans – link Japanese Purple Sweet Potato – link Daikon Radish – link Tomatillo Verde – link Achocha – link Beets – (Baby recycled) – Just get them in a grocery store Zucchino Rampicante Squash (trombone zucchini) – link Orach – Mixed – link Bloody Dock – link New Zealand Spinach – link Hopi Red Amaranth – link   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.
