I think someway somehow Freddie L. Sirmans, Sr’s writing and thinking is beginning to seep through and will be taken more and more serious. Wisdom dictates that as Americans we must relearn to plant gardens and small farms in order to eat and survive. It is the welfare state that caused our predicament and is keeping us in bondage.

We will never relearn to plant on a large enough scale to save ourselves unless forced to. I’m beginning to see signs that economical force is getting people’s attention and some are considering planting. But, its going to take a lot more force to start a stampede, a stampede back to home gardeners and small farmers is what it is going to take for this country to survive through hard times.

In the end we as a country must do what we have to to eat and survive. We are a long ways from being willing to give up the welfare state, but I’m seeing signs that we as a people just might get there, because dismantling the welfare state is the only real solution to save the U.S.A. and western civilization. I don’t expect ninety five per cent of the people to agree with me, but its not about me, its about future survival.

We are on a course straight to doomsday in my view, and I can only pray that I’m wrong. If you grow and raise most of your own food as a small farmer or a home gardener, then you the man. This nation and western civilization was built on small farmers and home gardeners an art we have lost due to the welfare state. All I hear is money, money, money, and the economy; it just shows a plain lack of wisdom and a weak survival instinct.It shows a lack of deep perspective.

A corrupt culture is the real reason this nation is being sold down the river. Let me again give the order of priority for survival, money is way down on the list when it comes to bare bone survival. The first priority for survival is food and without small farmers and home gardeners we simply can’t survive any national disaster over three days especially if the economy collapses.

The next priority is shelter and warmeth, followed by culture. If a society doesn’t have a culture with a strong moral and religious code along with a strong nuclear family system no amount of money can save it. Without a strong culture it will be “Me first, I want mine, I want it all.” That is where we are today, there are far to few people willing to go down fighting for what is in the best interest of the country in the long run.

That brings us to bartering capacity as next in line of survival priority, all economies starts with bartering. People survived long before money was invented, money and a business is only a means of exchange of goods and services. No business can survive without making a profit and that profit can only come from you and I. Finally, money comes next in line of priority to survive, but that mean real money that has it value in itself such as gold and silver, or paper money that is backed up by gold.

Sure, money is very important, but it is just one segment of what a society needs to survive. Contrary to what almost everybody thinks the economy is not the gravest problem this country has. A depraved culture is what’s really destroying this nation. When politicians wanting to gain and keep power took on the burdens of government provider that took away the need for the poor man to be needed as the primary provider.

That action set in motion the destruction of our culture and nuclear family system. It has almost completely demolished the African American culture and nuclear family system. That said, it is impossible to save our culture and this country in the long run if government retains it super provider role. I don’t make any rules; I’m just blessed with great wisdom to see the big picture.

People always learn to survive with dignity someway somehow when they are forced to depend on and rely on themselves. Concerning planting: I have a container garden myself and all it takes is some five gallon buckets or flowerpots. I grow tomatoes, bell peppers, and greens for now. I use determinate instead of indeterminate type tomatoes to keep plant size to 3 or 4 feet. All it takes is about a quart of water twice a day and some liquid miracle grow fertilizer about once a week.

There must be good drainage to avoid root rot. I use a cheap potted soil and pine bark to stretch it. Even people in cities can learn to plant if they had a mind to. Its coming folks, hard times is headed our way, we must start getting prepared if we want to eat and survive. You can buy the plants and everything needed from garden centers in Wal-mart, Lowe’s, Home depot, or any other plant store or nursery.Give God the praise, Amen.

  1. Yes, no matter how small the garden, it is good to grow as much of your own food.
