Growing Your Own Food Might be Worth the Time Investment

Comments are closed.

Last year, I tried an experiment to see how hard it would be to grow my own plants and food.  I got some supplies from Amazon… (growing medium, jar cups, and rocks) and other supplies locally… (soil, pots, etc.).  It wasn’t as hard as I anticipated to start the project—but the effort came in being consistent and knowing what to do as the plants began to grow.  If you travel or are out of the house a lot, and won’t have anyone to look after the plants to water or care for them, you may want to have them outside, where they can work with nature to fend for themselves.

You don’t have to “watch” the plants as much as having to “monitor” them.  I chose not to initially plant anything directly in the ground because I wanted to see how hard it was to have a portable garden. Pots and planters are easy to move around and can either be grouped together or placed in certain areas according to the amount of sunlight needed.

Growing your own fruits and veggies can really be a confidence booster as well as help save on your food bill. I encourage you to explore this as a hobby and then maybe become a serious gardener.  Things are changing in the world and having additional survival skills is a game changer.

As you may know, I usually don’t go into depth on my posts, but I do try to provide links or resources for you to do your own follow up or research.  So, check the link below and happy planting!

Bertie County: Tall Glass of Water Project (TGOW)

Comments are closed.

Have you visited the beach at the Bertie County’s Tall Glass of Water Project?  It started gaining steam back in 2019.  I’ve linked to the Bertie County page above.  It tells all about the project and I encourage you to go and read about it for yourself.  I got so interested in it, I took a quick trip out to take a look for myself. In my opinion, it looks like it could be a great start to a good thing.

However, I must mention a few things that you might need to be aware of.

Things that made me go…Hmmm

  1. The GPS is slightly off if you are using it to travel to the location.  And signage could be better.  I drove smooth past the entrance when I saw a little graveled road and the GPS said I had farther to go to get there. 
  2. The gravel road.  Big rocks. One and a quarter lane.  Which means you have to share the road going in and coming out. It wasn’t a difficult maneuver, but was still a little awkward.
  3. Parking.  There is a big grassy field where you park… much like some makeshift concert secondary parking; but it was doable. 
  4. The actual beach fronts.  Country is what country does. 😎  This actually reminded me more of a cove situation. In some places you had more space to put beach chairs and what not, but in all situations, the shore was narrow.  There were rusted engine blocks and tires—which made for good exploration and adventure, but Nags Head twin… it was not. 🙂☺

But, I can say that there were a good number of people out there having a great time, and more were coming in as I was leaving.  I think this will be a well-used beach/water access.  Congratulations to the project planners!  And I look forward to many more great things.  I took pictures!

The 2022 Official Primary Election Results – Bertie

Are you interested in learning about results for your primary local elections? You can see the results for your area by conducting a similar search as I did for Bertie County. There is a great deal of information available! And, don’t forget… Vote in the general election in November!!!

Remember, voting for those who are supportive of your concerns will help get resources, funding and assistance to you and your community. For too long, crooked politicians who are in the pockets of big business (in my opinion REPUBLICANS …and yes some Democrats), have been working against you and your interests. You want better roads and infrastructure? You have to vote for those who will work for you and not work against you in the service of corporations and other entities that are quick to say “government is bad“, but are the first in line to receive government contracts and other benefits. It’s time for a change. And you can influence those changes with your vote! I recommend voting for #Progressives in November 2022!

Why Can’t We Be Non-Affiliate? Why Do We Even Need Parties?

Comments are closed.

I’m in my mid fifties.  I’ve tried both, Republican and Democrat parties and found them both useless for my intentions and purposes.  I love the Progressive movement and find the Green party to be very similar in mission, but, I’m not too sure I want to join a party.  I’m just not a big fan.

Why can’t we just agree on issues and support candidates who represent our goals and viewpoints? And, when election day comes, that person is the one we ride with.  That would so be the envy of the system!  It would be plain, simple and straight to the point.

I know… I know… Yes. It would be hard to organize without a formal organization being formed; but, on the flip side, let the candidate be the organizer of his campaign and Read More
