[MittleiderMethodGardening] How to Prevent and/or Control pests in the Mittleider Garden

 

Group:


The question has been posed as to how the Mittleider Gardener avoids or controls bugs in the garden.  Here's my response:


There are several methods of insect pest control.

#1. Cultural Practices - No weeds in the garden, wide bare perimeter, bare dirt in the aisles.

#2. Water only the root zone of the plants. Everywhere else is dry and inhospitable to bugs.

#3. Grow healthy bug and disease-free seedlings in a protected environment for transplanting into the garden.

#4. Feed accurately and consistently, assuring fast growth and healthy plants that are less attractive to and resist bug damage.

#5 Healthy plants started from strong healthy seedlings are in the garden fewer days, and therefore less susceptible to damage.

#6. Prune plants regularly, removing all leaves that touch the ground, that are old and not productive, and that are overlapping other plants or blocking needed sunlight into the interior of the plants.

#7. Harvest plants immediately at peak maturity, not leaving them in the garden to grow old and attract bugs & disease.

Jim,

I tried ordering the Gardening Seminar DVD from the website but it keeps asking for a shipping weight and won't let me finish the process. Could use a little help.

Dennis & Group:


For some unknown reason the system will accept an order if another - shippable - item is included, but it won't let this "free shipping" item go through.  I don't know why but our Web Master is hopefully going to find out the fix for it.


Meanwhile, you can go to PayPal and sent the $10.95 to jim@growfood.com.  Or you could sent a check by snail mail to FFEF, 4977 South 11th East, Idaho Falls, Idaho 83404.


Hopefully we can get you productive quickly.

Friends - the Spring Growing Season is fast approaching, and is already here in the southern-tier states. Are you ready?

Are you preparing to teach and assist others to grow their own food, so that you don't have to feed them?

Many of you likely want to help others but feel inadequate to do so. Here's the solution!

David (ldsprepper) and I will be able to visit a few locations only, and those are the ones that can keep us busy for a week, conducting free seminars in 4 locations - Thursday P.M., Friday P.M., and Saturday morning and afternoon

Those of you who have sufficient concentrations of people to create seminars of 100+ 4 times in a week in a drive-able area are invited to call or write and we'll work with you to create seminars in your area.

However, the large majority of you likely cannot generate that level of interest in your local area. But you still need (and want, right?) to help spread this knowledge to your family, friends, and neighbors.

And here's how YOU can do it! The Foundation has excellent resources to help you learn and conduct the teaching and demonstration process yourself, whether it's a formal Seminar, a Workshop, or an informal gathering of friends.

The Mittleider Gardening Seminar CD/DVD contains several videos and several PowerPoint Presentations, as well as documents in Word that can help you to give your own seminar or workshop, or even to coach yourself in becoming more competent in gardening.

For the next two weeks I have reduced the price, and instead of paying about $19 including shipping, you can get this tremendous teaching and training resource for only $10,95 with FREE shipping!

Grab the Mittleider Gardening Seminar CD/DVD now at www.growfood.com/shop and begin doing all you can to spread this important knowledge!

In addition to the Seminar DC/DVD you can use The 6 Laws of Plant Growth, 6 Steps to Successful Gardening, the Garden Planting Details, and How to Build and use T-Frames Schedules as handouts. They are available right here in the Files Section.  Even just explaining and demonstrating these documents will make you the expert your friends can look to for good and accurate advice and counsel in gardening.

Let's get involved now, so that when the gardening season is here you can be an instrument of change for good in the world around you. Go to www.growfood.com/shop and get your Gardening Seminar CD/DVD today!

[MittleiderMethodGardening] Mittleider Gardening Certification Training Boot Camp - 2017

 

Friends:   We are excited to announce the schedule for our Mittleider Gardening Training Certification Boot Camps for 2017!

We have a new Geo-Thermal year-round greenhouse completed and operational, and participants will learn "from the best, in the best" this year.

We're also working hot and heavy on completing four apartments in the Annex building, to house couples or others who prefer nicer "digs" right on campus, rather than going to hotels that are 8 miles away. After registering those who want this option need to let us know, in order to make those arrangements.

The instruction and training you'll receive are the best and most comprehensive available anywhere, and the cost is less than half of other programs we've seen. Plus, the food is prepared by Araksya Kennard! Let's hear some comments on her cooking by past graduates of the training program! :)

We can only take 28 serious students, so I recommend you get your spot quickly, and save some $$ by doing so as well

Here's the link for the first training program, which will be April 3-8:http://growfood.com/…/mittleider-gardening-training-boot-c…/

David Gillmore (LDS Prepper) and I look forward to seeing you there!

Can anyone advise us about growing sweet potatoes in south Florida? (Sand). I've been learning about Mittleider for years but have not yet been able to implement it in a practice sense, I e actually planting and growing by Mitt Meth. I have a friend who is learning about sweet potatoes now so we are asking about them in particular.
Any advise would be appreciated.

We here in California and some other states including Arizona and Texas I believe have the Bagada But and it is driving the commercial growers crazy.  The Bagrada decended on us a few years ago from Africa.  It is very destructive and should it move to your state, you should call your local Ag department and get some help.  Once this little, tiny bug which loves cole crops gets entrnched in your soil,  you can't get rid of it.  So,  it loves Kale.  It also loves hot weather.  WE, at our Community Gardens, had to take drastic measures and ban Kale growing during the hot months of the year.  Bagrada hates  cool weather and rain.  Just a heads up everyone.  Go to You Tube and type in Bagrada Bug so you can learn about it.

[MittleiderMethodGardening] Time to Plan Your Garden! Some Helps & Good News

 

Friends:  January is the time to plan your garden for this year, and here are a few ideas to get you started.


Lay out your garden plot on paper, and write in the crops that your family loves and will eat.


Organize a spot to start seedlings, either in your basement or another room in the house using a heat source in order to assure that your seedling soil maintains temperatures between 70 & 85 degrees, and after emergence use good Grow-Lights at least 16 hours per day.  We grow in sawdust & sand in a ratio of 2 to 1, using the balanced Mittleider natural mineral nutrients.  Constant Feed (1 oz Weekly Feed to 3 gallons of water) is used on seedlings until they are transplanted into the garden.


Start with greens of several kinds.  And train yourself to pick outer leaves and eat them regularly, even daily!  Red-leaf and Romaine lettuce are my choices, and if you keep them picked, watered, and fed you can eat these several times per week for months!  


Beets are one of the healthiest and best things to grow, with the leaves picked 2-3 leaves each week from each plant after the first 30 days.  They are tasty either raw or cooked, and eaten by themselves, in soups, stews, in smoothies, or salads.  The same is true for turnips, and even sugar beets are good, although they grow to be very large plants when outside and in the sun.  We've been harvesting beets, sugar beets, turnips, and Swiss chard for many months from our garden.


Don't plant too much of any one crop, especially the single-crop varieties.  With ever-bearing crops you can grow quite a few plants, because the fruit matures over a long harvest season (remember that greens effectively do the same if you pick and eat the outer leaves every few days).


Plan to grow vining crops vertically, and to the North or East in your garden, so that the tall plants do not shade your shorter varieties.  We love an heirloom called Siberian Rose, and hybrids Big Beef and Better Boy, as well as Grape, and Sun Sugar  (cherry-size).


You need to refer to the Garden Planting Details Schedule to see when to plant everything.  And planting dates depend on your Average Date of Last Frost (ADLF), so make sure you know when that is by checking with your County Ag Agent or looking online.


For all of you who are serious about long-term growing your own food we have re-stocked our supply of the Canned Heirloom Garden Seeds that are so popular!  This is over 30,000 seeds, including 23 of the best varieties for all growing areas in the USA.  They are triple-sealed, and will last you for 20 years!  when properly stored and cared for.  Get your can now before we run out, as we only have 132 of them available.  Go to Growfood.com » Canned Heirloom Garden Seeds

Happy Planning & may you have a great garden this year!

Friends:


I'm sorry to say that this App does not work on Android devices.  Dennis told me that he has hopes of getting it done on that platform this year, but it will definitely be a while.  I think he will see how it is accepted and used in the Apple marketplace before he invests a lot more timedoing it over again.

Always a catch, huh!
