Update for you folks

Forgive me ladies and gentlemen for not posting regularly. I’ve been busy with the Spring garden alongside other responsibilities. But Episode 11 of The EdRay Report is coming soon. It will be the first time that I show pictures of my Spring garden to let you folks in how I’m doing this without relying on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Having a quality organic garden takes time, so on Episode 11, I will teach you patience on growing a quality garden.

Most people that do garden give up for the following reasons. Number one, growing food takes a long time. But you folks need to remember that all the foods in the grocery store are either being grown in California or Mexico and their seasons are usually different. Number two, a lot of foods are coming from Africa, Asia, sometimes Australia. Again, the seasons are different for them. That’s why our grocery stores have a constantly supply of food.

And before you harvest food, you have to start planting different foods for different seasons so a famine is less likely. So for those that are impatient, but want to garden nonetheless, stay tuned for Episode 11 of The EdRay Report. Of course tell your friends, family, and even enemies about The EdRay Report. Episode 11 will air on Friday. Take care folks.

What to expect for April

Episode 10 of The EdRay Report will be a milestone episode as I talk about diabetes. While magazines and other stuff exist on the issue, we realize that there are underlying variables about diabetes. So stay tuned for the latest information on Episode 10.

Meanwhile, The EdRay Special on cannabis will be uploaded on April 20th, AKA 4/20. This will be the first time that I collaborate with another person, so be prepared on this day. I will be talking about the uses for cannabis that does not involve smoking just to alter your dopamine levels for pleasure. I can’t believe I’m talking about this, but that’s the way it is.

Gardening blogs will contain pictures as I work a lot more outdoors. Trying to build a new compost pen, but that will take time. Fear not, I will do my best to create a sustainable system in which I can transform my backyard into paradise. Permaculture takes time, but if done right, it will change the landscape of your backyard. Until next time, take care of yourself.

In regards to Episode 10

Hello everyone, this is EdRay speaking. Throughout the past month, I’ve been working pretty hard to provide not only blogs and reports in regards to gardening, health, and economizing. If you think March was hectic month for me, the month of April will contain two milestone videos. First being Episode 10 of The EdRay Report, the other being an EdRay Special regarding cannabis.

What does this mean for me for the remainder of March? It’s means I will go easy on blogging as I try to recover. I want to be mentally prepared for Episode 10 of The EdRay Report in which I cover the subject of diabetes. Meanwhile, I’ve been going outside and relaxing by tending to the garden.

Once a month, I will let you know the progress of my permaculture garden method. In the mean time, please tell your friends, family, and even enemies about The EdRay Report. I know you folks want to see something good and I will provide my best efforts in April. But right now, I need to go easy.

The next blog that I post will be about the airdate of Episode 10. As for The EdRay Special? It will air on April 20th (aka 4/20). I will also provide updates regarding The EdRay Special. Thank you for your time.

The EdRay Report- Episode 9

At long last, Episode 9 is here. The final episode for the month of March. Tell you friends, family, and even enemies about The EdRay Report. This episode covers steps on how to turn your baron land in the desert into an oasis with basic knowledge. If this can work in the desert in Africa, Middle East, and Asia, it can work here in America.

Postponement of Episode 9

With me working very hard this week starting my Spring garden, I didn’t have a chance to come up with a subject to talk about. I don’t know when I will do Episode 9, but bear with me if you please. Throughout the past few days, I’ve been planting vegetables, herbs, and summer fruits like watermelon and honeydew melon.

I’ve also been helping an old man start his garden. When I post Episode 9, you’ll see it. Enough about Episode 9. Tomorrow, I will be busy finding stakes to hammer in the ground so I can straighten out my cherry trees and plum tree. Gardening is the main subject of The EdRay Report and for good reason.

Food prices are unbearable. Food as a whole is unbearable due to terrible taste and poor quality. Modern day farming is failing, so applying a permaculture method can increase yields of food, allowing for more food to be grown here in America.

If you are a true gardener, don’t just talk the talk, actually walk the walk. I will show pictures of my garden following Easter Sunday. In the mean time, relax and enjoy this season depending on where you live. Here in America, planting season has started. Check the weather before you start your garden. Thank you for your time.

In regards to Episode 9

I’m not sure what Episode 9 will be. But the episode will be out this week. Once the episode is up here on The EdRay Report, I’m taking a break from uploading videos on this site. I might upload specials that break away from the purpose of this site, but with the following that I’m getting, branching out occasionally is necessary.

What will I talk about? That’s something I’ll have to find out. I will still do blogs, but videos take a lot of time and effort. I hope you folks understand. Episode 10 will come in April. Stay tuned for further details. Until next time, take care of yourselves.

The EdRay Report- Episode 8

How propagation can make gardening easier

Remember when I talked about the benefits of propagating in a blog about it? Well, I’m going to expand on propagating certain foods and how that can give you certain foods year round guaranteed. I know this flies in the face of conventional wisdom in the garden, but this is dedicated mainly toward people that live in the Northern and mountainous parts of America. The growing season is very short.

With the advent of greenhouses all over the North and places in the mountains (Rocky, Appalachian, Smoky, and Sierra), more food is capable of being grown. Yes, it was a pain over 150 years ago to grow and preserve food. A lot of things went wrong. Rain storms, droughts, no way of preserving food if the seasons were short. I get that the old school way of growing food 200 years ago is getting pretty serious. When you have less acreage to grow food and you have 300 million people to feed in this country, what can you do to alleviate the situation?

Build a greenhouse farm. Why? Because greenhouse farming is becoming revolutionary to grow food in the cold period up north and in the mountains. Organic food in greenhouses where bugs can’t mess with the plants. But what about growing foods from seed?

Up in the north and the mountains, some people have to wait until late-May to plant their crops from seed. And even so, the yields are not great. While greenhouse farming is helping to grow foods for a longer period of time, it still takes a while. So what can greenhouse farmers do? Propagate cuttings of certain fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

If you propagate the “suckers” of tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants, and they root successfully, the odds of yielding more food goes up tenfold. That will mean that more food will be harvested in the greenhouse farms, allowing for food prices to stabilize during the cold period. The cold period is usually the worst time to buy food due to the low supplies brought on by cold temperatures. To make up for that, supermarkets buy foods from all around the world meet up with the demand of food.

The big problem is that conventional farmers are taking out nutrients and not putting it back. Organic farmers are trying to add more nutrients, but they are still in the dark. Greenhouse farming maybe good warding off bugs and other pests, but there is no rain to hydrate the soil. Permaculture farming is best in the desert and southern regions of America.

For you folks in the north wanting to grow food in quicker time in the long run, here’s what you need to do. If you use a foam cup and fill it with at least 1/3 of water. Then get the “sucker” of plant you want rooted. Take off the bottom leaves and leave at least 3 top leaves on the sucker. Immerse the bottom part of the “sucker” in water. Change the water once a day. Once roots come up, throw out the water, put in the potting soil, poke 3 holes in the bottom of the foam cup, and water the rooted sucker. The holes will determine how much water is in the cup. Excess water drains when there are 3 holes. Just poke the holes with a toothpick.

Once the roots of the “sucker” spread in the potting soil, you can fertilize with wood ashes if you want. I suggest mulching the soil with green tea leaves because that it make it easier to determine how much moisture is in the plant. After two weeks to a month, those “suckers” are ready for transplanting. For you folks in the north, if you don’t want to put them in the ground, you can always get a potting soil and bigger flower pot to transplant the newly clone vegetable plant.

With a propagated eggplant, if you live in the mountains, you’ll get eggplants in August rather than October when it gets cold. People in the north can increase yields quickly with propagation. Just imagine the amount of tomatoes that could be harvested on a small family farm or a greenhouse farm before winter.

Propagation can pretty much work everywhere. In the south, you can propagate plants in the fall and nearly have a harvest before Spring. In the desert area, that can work if you are operating a permaculture farm. But this is NECESSARY for those that live in the Northern states. As for people living in the Sierras, Cascades, Rockies, Smokies, Appalachia, and other mountain ranges, this will help you feed your family much easier.

Propagation does not just work on crops, it works on orchards. Meaning if you want a new grapevine, you have to propagate. If you want to start an orchard of navel oranges, you have to propagate those branches every year for the next 10 to 20 years. You can propagate lemon trees, fig trees, plum trees, a persimmons tree, maybe even a pomegranate tree. If you propagate them right, you can get fruit in three years compared to 15 years for a fruit from seed. In the case of permaculture and super rich soil, maybe less than that from seed.

So remember this. If you want to increase yields of tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants, propagate them. You can try to propagate squash and cucumbers. It’s risky, but it is possible. You can try to propagate watermelons, but the yields and size would make you think twice. Certain foods are not meant to be propagated and some you cannot propagate like grains. Corn, wheat, etc.

I already talked about regrowing yesterday. Regrowning vegetables that have bottoms like onions, garlic, lettuce, celery, carrots. You can propagate certain herbs like basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and even stevia. Herb stems are easy because when the roots come up, you can have free herbs for life. Basil is an annual herb, so you must propagate those herbs. Oregano, thyme, rosemary, and stevia are perennial. You can increase yields for years as you grow more herbs.

Hopefully with common sense and good soil quality, you can triple or quadruple your food production in one year, giving you an abundance to feed yourself and your family. Imagine, a family of 8 propagates foods and increases their food production. Food bill gets slashed by 60 percent and there is still food to hold them until winter. You do not need rooting hormone to propagate food crops, but I would suggest using honey and cinnamon to encourage root growth when propagating. Just make sure the water is changed daily.

To conclude this blog, I want to say thank you to the people that showed me tips on how to propagate and how to improve soil quality before planting season. It makes soil more pleasurable to aerate without disturbing the ecosystem. That will allow people turn a farm into food forests that could end reverse desertification and end world hunger.
