About 7 years ago I attended one of the most important classes of my entire life. It was taught by a man named Dave Jones. His moniker is ‘The NBC Guy’ and he is not talking about the television network.
Dave Jones spent 20+ years in the military and for most of it he taught nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare. In that class Dave Jones explained to us all the effects of a nuclear bomb and the true threat they pose to life.
We were sitting in a room in Doswell, Virginia. We were about one hour forty five minutes from Washington, DC. We were all surprised to find out that a nuclear strike on Washington would present no threats to us whatsoever.

If we are just talking the effects of the blast and the total blast radius; you might be surprised at what you find out about the average nuclear war blast.
Are You Near a Target?
Nuclear war is terrifying. In all honesty, we are closer to nuclear war than ever before. People are right to be cautious and concerned.
The motivations of a nation using nuclear weapons have not changed since they were used to force the surrender of the Japanese in WWII. They are weapons designed for maximum destructions and casualties.
There are battlefield targets in an active war scenario. Tactical nukes are an example and have a yield between .1 and 20 kilotons. That probably doesn’t mean a thing to you without a quantifier. The Fat Man that fell on Nagasaki was a 20 kiloton bomb.
If the Fat Man were dropped on Soho in NYC, the blast radius would not reach Central Park. The entire island and surrounding areas would be affected by the effects of the EMP, but only light blast damage would reach Midtown Manhattan.
New York is a target. Washington DC is a target. Massive cities that would allow for mass casualties could be targeted by even larger ICBM nukes.
If you live in a major city you should move for a number of reasons, not just the threat of a nuclear blast.
Eliminating the threat of a counterstrike is another motivation when using your nuclear arsenal. In other words, targeting the enemies nuclear launch sites so that they are incapable of launching nukes in a return volley.
Of course, military installations of all kinds would be potential targets in nuclear war, too.
The Greatest Threat for Most
Dave Jones taught us that the thing that can get you killed the quickest is panic. If a nuclear weapon hits the United States, you are going to see PANDEMONIUM.
The panic will be absolutely deadly. It will force people to make bad decisions based on pandemic and you are going to see Dave Jones always says the first thing you need to do after a nuclear blast is…. “Change your pants!”

It’s a joke, maybe, but most importantly it is a reminder that you need to get your bearings and start to make sense of life after a nuclear attack on the United States. You need to engage the OODA loop and start planning for next steps.
Threats of a Nuclear Bomb
Do you know what happens during a nuclear detonation? We are going to list all the parts of a nuclear blast and how they affect people and places. This is all based on a 100kt blast which is one of the most common weapons in the US and UK arsenal.
Light is the first sign of a nuclear bomb. The light from a nuclear blast is so bright that if you were 20 miles away with your back turned to the blast, closed your eyes, and put your forearm over your eyes.
You would be able to see the bone in your arm. WITHOUT OPENING YOUR EYES! This light will blind you if you look at it directly.
The fireball of a 100kt bomb has about a half a kilometer radius of damage. That’s around one third of a mile. This is hell on earth. What is inside the fireballs range will be vaporized.
The most intense ionizing radiation will be inside the 1km radius from the blast. In other words, more than half a mile radius from the blast. This radiation exposure is so strong that 15% of victims will die within a month from cancer.
Moderate Blast Damage
The largest amount of damage and casualties comes from the blast radius that emanates from the area of detonation outward. This is true power of the nuclear bomb.
If we are talking about a 100kt bomb, then the blast radius would be right around 2 miles. If detonated in DC it would destroy every monument and building that we hold dear in that area.
Along with the blast comes the threat of thermal radiation that expands out even further, nearly a 3 mile radius. This radiation will instantly cause 3rd degree burns on victims.
Light Blast Damage
Up to five miles away from the blast, if we are talking about a 100kt bomb, you will have light blast damage that will shatter windows and damage weak structures.
Outwards beyond this radius electronics would be affected inconsistently.
Related: A Step-by-Step of What to Do Immediately After an EMP Strike
A surge of energy would damage electronics beyond the light blast radius. We just don’t know the specifics with modern tech in modern cities.
How Far Away Would You Need to Be?
All surrounding major cities would be completely unaffected by the blast. A 10 mile radius outside of DC would likely not be affected by the immediate blast.
Places like Baltimore, Fredericksburg, Richmond, even Silver Spring or Annapolis are very far outside the blast radius.
Of course, these calculations were all done for a 100kt bomb and there are many weaker weapons and some stronger ones out there. To truly answer the question of how far away YOU need to be. You should first determine the targets that are near you.
Your town is not going to get nuked for no good reason.
Once you have determined potential targets in your area you should use the incredible NUKEmap to do a detonation simulation right around that target and see how it affects your area.
When you are playing with this simulation remember a few things:
- Use airburst as that is what major militaries will do. They will detonate a weapon over the city not on the ground. The ground absorbs too much of the blast and limits casualties.
- Drag the marker to your nearest target.
- Don’t forget to hit DETONATE.
People WILL survive all out nuclear war. Many people will survive a limited nuclear exchange between Europe and Russia. This is the most likely scenario down the road. If Russia is pushed to use nuclear weapons, then it would make sense for them to target someone close. That means Europe.
When a nuclear bomb hits a target near you, are you in the blast radius? Will you feel the immediate effects of the blast?
Use the tools and the knowledge that we offered you in this article to figure that out. You needn’t spend your nights worrying about what if. Get the answers.

Thank you God for this web site.
Prepping by Definition
I just ask Google and this was the first one that came up.
the action or process of preparing something, or prepping for something.
Can one way be the best way, for every one. I think not, how boring would that be.
I like when GOD or JESUS are mentioned in someone’s post. There are those that don’t like reading about it, in some ones post, But is it right that, that we are only to talk about what is put in the article.
MY God, just look at what we are talking about in this article. How to survive a nuclear attack or how to live thru a nuclear attack.
You bet I want to have GOD and JESUS talked about in any one’s post that wants to talk, either good or bad. Yes, it dose hurt to read something, that one has posted about GOD or JESUS, in a bad way. but still your right. That’s okay.
I’ve been prepping for a very long time. I think that Religion should be part of prepping, but that’s for ME and only ME.
If you do not wish to use religion in your prepping then that is for YOU and only YOU. BUT don’t try and stop someone from posting something about Religion. If you do not like it, then do not post to it and if someone post to it and you fill the need to not reply to it. Then don’t, But don’t stop the discussion about religion in this site or any other site.
Because when we took GOD out of the schools, Look what has happened to our children…
Everything is about prepping… “EVERYTHING” good or bad.
I read most all post and I see some that complain about the lack of talking about the article and then I read nothing that has anything to do with the article from there post. so please if you are going to complain about not enough talk about the article then please post your thought about what you think about the article. BUT quit complaining about someone’s post. Just read post or not or don’t answer back.
I am not here to change your mind into my way of thinking but only here to voice my opinion, “just like you”…
We can all be here, if we want to. even the trolls…
Just tired of the whining…
Unless you went to Catholic school, religion in the schools was a matter of saying the Lord’s prayer and that was about it. Not sure that had much impact on children, even at the time.
Not in my public school, we said the pledge for the flag, then we prayed and the principle would say a few word about GOD and Jesus over the speaker. Then we would start class.
But, it to started to be less and less about GOD and this is were we are today.
God is good
with out God, what else’s is there. evil…
Catholic is serious one twisted pagan cult that destroyed and went far away from what Christianity is.
Blake: Even where I was raised, God was important in schools. That moment of silence was cool to me. the best students were the religious ones because as teachers said, God commanded us to learn. that meant nothing to me then, but for a couple of decades I’ve been rushing to make up for it LOL. Yes, prayer in school meant something. It focused us. niio
Thanks for that red ant. My question is, there are suitcase nukes out there. Those l suspect are going to be used first. Probably taken to the top floor of a tall building in a city. Does anyone know the blast size of a typical suitcase nuke?
why would they be used first ?
maybe it would damage a few blocks if that.
Because ICBMs would be detected and either countered or used as an excuse for a counter-attack.
Suitcase nukes would be used first to take out key infrastructure before an initial assault.
If I were an enemy of the United States, I’d use suitcase nukes to take out as many military and political targets as possible before launching ICBMs to blanket as much of the country in an EMP as possible.
Preferably, I’d do this through another nation-state so that I could then later invade the US in the guise of humanitarian aid.
Luckily for everyone involved I am not such a person possessing such power, but if I (with my limited knowledge and intelligence) could come up with such a plan, then imagine what a committee of military leaders could come up with.
Well a few things…. Hyper sonic nukes are the new hot thing and they can go under the radar so detection is pretty limited.
Why nuke the cities ? I could see a “EMP attack but make it from a terrorist group ” giving plausible deniability to a nation.
Would be a lot harder to get the “suitcase nukes into a military hard sites soo not sure about that”
Those would have a small blast radius.
Usually those are dirty bombs to spread contamination as much as possible for their size.
It sort of su**s to be living in the midst of the largest concentration of military bases on the east coast. (15 bases!) Closest ones are not important bases, big targets are about 15 miles away.
bummer. Don’t think any place would be worth living around, after a blast, like a bunch of nukes…
Lets pray it never happens.
The most important thing in this is simply the undeniable fact and something that each and every single one of us must keep in mind is that we all have to die of something.
There’s no getting around it.
Such is life.
There is one way to not die. That is to accept Jesus as your Savior. Then when you do that, yes you might die before his second coming. But if you live long enough, you will be caught up in the clouds. Then you will not die here on this earth but have a new body when you are lifted up. Pretty cool. I think…
you will see the truth.
if religion is c**p, then one day you will receive a face full of religious c**p from “your creator”.
if you think you can stand before GOD and tell; Him, His, religion is crap.
You will lose very badly.
Hope we will get to see all the judgement. Then we Saints will watch YOU and many millions more before you and after you. will be casted OUT of Heaven…
but hey, that’s why GOD gave us free will, O’ and God will not stop you from denying him, just like YOU will not stop Him from judging you and giving you a life sentence, to Dam nation.
good luck. man, you will need it, so sad….
red ant: I don’t argue religion because religion is c**p. Fellowship is beauty. dz is his own person. I respect his beliefs as I do yours and care for both of you. Please remember, as well, he was quick to defend God against a known cultist.
When fellowship fails, religion looms and defeats fellowship. What was Jesus’ worse problem? Overcoming religion of the apostate Pharisees and the agnostic Sadducees. Because he dared to show them they were wrong, they had him killed.
Science today is proving the case for Christ from birth to how he died and rose again. Even atheist Bible scholars agree, somehow he did rise. Mutilated, bleeding, harsh suffering. He had to have been healed but the rock moved for him. There is no way only one or even two men could roll it up the groove, set it in place, and leave it there. Atheist Bible scholars state the Gospels are historical documents. They do not believe there are any gods, but still wonder how he managed to overcome death and escaped the tomb. niio
I don’t believe in science to much.
I believe it’s more of a guessing game.
I don’t believe in athiest. I stay far away from the earthly, man’s ways.
The Bible tells what and how Jesus was born lived and died. How can science prove what GOD already new.
satan is the “God of this world”.
We are not of this world.
satan made science just as he made this world for him self.. I say to you don’t fall for this that satan has put here for his benefit, not ours.
For it is by grace you have been “saved though faith” this is not from yourself it is a gift from GOD.
red ant: God invented modern science for our use. Popes ordered colleges be built, and monasteries to become research labs. Most sciences were developed by Christians and believing Jews. Christ is rising again among scientists, and YE creationism is now about 11%+ of scientists. I have a number of scientists in the family and they’ll all tell you to trust science. It’s the scientists you need to worry about–humans without a stopgap like God will say and do anything for power and wealth. niio
I fallow the Old Testament and the New Testament in The Bible. GOD has always been there for me when not even my own family was Not.
Jesus was there, when No one else’s cared.
Know, both My father in Heaven and my Savior; Jesus Christ gave what not one person on this earth could of easily have gave. It was Just Love.
I just don’t have Faith in man and his evil and vial ways. Just look at this tiny little web site, say Jesus and watch the dead fish start to flop around. They come out to mock his HOLY Name, they Hate him just like they Hate me.
O’ and, here are those that say I am a Christian, but won’t stand for the truth to be told. They have No Faith in GOD. The bible states that there will be a Great falling away from GOD and His word. I see it more now then I ever had before.
I truly find it so sad, that so many people will fall like a tree hitting the ground with such force, that it destroys the tree, but dose not make even the dust move from under it. What I mean is that they would rather be destroyed, then to simply just believe and have faith and you can not move what God has put into place, here on this earth.
Remember the God you are praying to, just might be the God of this earth and NOT the GOD The Creator. That’s why we have to make a Covent with GOD in order to not be Decived in to thinking you are praying to God the creator not God of this earth. Satan is the great deciver and he has a great following and they don’t even know who they are praying to. Satan is way smarter then anyone I know and he is good at deceiving people. Just look around…
I will keep my eyes on JESUS and not the battle.
red ant: Between us, yes, you walk in His beauty. To others, we’re pests. Jesus came, primarily, to destroy the works of the devil. I share what I have, food, clothes, faith, because I love like Jesus. Jesus did not harang. If someone didn’t want to attend to his message, he let them in peace because buzzing them would only turn them away from His love. This is as much an act of love toward others as teaching.
On science, we own the sciences and we need to remember that. Never mistrust science, but never trust unless you can verify the scientists and the work they produce. G’d told you, learn! Then teach and continue to learn. That’s what science used to be based on, before Christians let themselves be shoved aside. Max Planck (ID creationist) said science advances one funeral at a time. https://www.collegexpress.com/interests/christian/blog/what-bible-says-about-education/
The entire reason we were educated is to glorify G’d thru that. You are commanded to get an education, to learn what you can. Creationism went from 0.01% of scientists in the 1970s to over 11% today and still rising. A lot of scientists are overcome just by their work to become believers. Collins, Sarfati and others. niio
red ant, to be very clear, to me you are a fanatical religious false prophet using this blog about prepping as a pulpit to preach your personal religious agenda, please take your preaching to a religious site where it is more appropriate.
And I don’t rely on luck, it’s skill and knowledge that will determine the majority of those that will not only survive, but work towards rebuilding after a real EOTWAWKI event.
red, what if “creationism” is because of technologically advanced life forms (divine deities) that decided to perform an experiment and “seed” the Earth with DNA that caused various amounts and forms of evolution? What if since the “seeding” some advanced life forms (divine deities) then tried “social engineering” throughout history by performing genetic engineering and social engineering by providing some limited knowledge and philosophies, which were then used and corrupted by humans seeking power and profit, and producing the bogus “words of men” to create religions and “sacred gospel” that is so often claimed to be the “word of God” and is falsely used to manipulate the masses?
As a true Agnostic, a “divine being” from human history may not be an “all powerful, all knowledgeable” being, but just a description of a technologically advanced beings that visited the Earth that have been passed down from our distant ancestors. There is so much more information to ponder, but this might be a start to get the ideas flowing.
red, to simplify: What is a “God”? What is an “Angel”? What is a “Demon”? What is the definition of, and the parameters of, a “Divine Entity”?
These are questions, among others, I asked religious “leaders” when I was a very young child. Most started spouting scripture to cover their ignorance and insecurity, some blatantly lied, the same as many do on these blogs.
Then, also as a small child, when I encountered desperate situations and sincerely prayed, I did not receive guidance, NOTHING! I tried again on several following occasions, all the same, NOTHING. And so, a very young child was convinced by the excuses and lies from the human religious leaders, and the failures of any divine response, that the propagandized “religions” based upon the written “words of men” were all heresy and lies. Since then, I’ve taken on a lifelong quest to find the truth, and it is not in ANY of the “words of men” designed to deceive the gullible masses into conforming to their doctrines designed to gain power and profit for the “church”.
I may never find the answers I seek, but I will not succumb to the heresy of any of the false prophets.
That’s okay. I still love ya, brother. Just like all the others on here even the trolls and the luke warm believers. Be Hot or Cold.
I know that it is not luck that helps you in your life…
It’s an Angle, that was commanded by GOD. To watch over you during your time here on Earth.
So sorry for using that term against you.
I felt it was so much better if I posted this then something ugly.
First I saw in the mirror. Then I said nothing against my enemy, this morning…
I am not that much in to scinecs. I find that, yes some is and most is not.
How can the Hubble telescope be millions of light years away and send a perfect picture back to earth. but I can’t call my wife and I am only a mile away.
How can a robot on mars, be cursing around and sending pictures back to earth, but I can’t make a transaction from my bank because one tower in not working.
Why do we need Spaces Forces.?
How come, when I look at the earth from NASA, there are no stars in the picture.
In the sixtys, we went the the Moon. but never been back. Hmm…
Why do we need so many horrible diseses contained in a building, enough to wipe out the humans over and over and over.
Why Why Why…
What is sciences. good bad can’t say.
Why do you not spell out GOD’S whole name when you post.?
Why do you not just have faith. why do you need scinence, to tell you who GOD is. he said. I AM WHO I AM. that’s enough for me. that was even before the birth of Christ.
with respect. very much…
we are made in the same image, but not from the same mold. That’s what makes us all unique.
I can’t wait to see and hear the Angles, three of them. That, you will know the time is at hand.
peace be with all.
Dz That post was for red ant. We’re supposed to show, not demand, not come on like used car salesmen. Some get excited because as a believe, I know it’s exciting to act in LOVE. It was not meant for anyone but believers. But, out of respect for you and that you are something of an intellectual…
A lot of scientists today are looking into the alien-sperm seed beginnings of humanity. Any Creationist of any leaning, YE, ID, OE and so on will ask, Then who created the aliens?
First, any scholar will tell you, give proof the words of men are bogus. That the bible, itself, stands as a historical document cannot be dismissed. Modern, 21st century Bible scholars and that includes atheist such as Ledeman and other, are awed at the accuracy of it as a historical document. No one questions the validity of the Bible. Whether or not there is a god, yes, but not that it is history. niio
red ant: Training from rabbis, they use G’d in writing because they do not want to call on Him without a reason. It’s a moot pint. I doubt He cares 🙂 niio
dz: The word god means holy. Angel, means a being of fire. Demon, a spirit who lost the fire and fell into a trap of his own making.
Man, look, you are YOU! Allow that I accept that. Accept I respect you are a fellow human being. I do not care what you say to the others. You have every right to feel as you do. My concern is your safety and thriving through what is being forced on us. Your soul/mind/ego is between you and God. How many times have you seen me chop my jaws at someone who is not a believer? Nope! Not unless they’re trying to mock God. Then the redskin blood gets bitter. You are not doing that. Read what I wrote to the Hexe; I respected her and encouraged her with what I know. I do not abide nazism, and no, raven is not a believer, but a God-hater.
Major key to God is to wait. Keep an eye out for an answer. He will never go against His word, never tell anyone to sin. When things go right, just smile and tell Him thank you. niio
I am a Elohim hater ? you got all that from what ?? Because i explained why Easter is a pagan holiday …. Passover is what we should be celebrating .
raven, the term is atheist. Easter is Passover. Only Germanic speakers call it easter, Lord of the East/Jesus. You act exactly like the atheists who try to cause trouble by pretending to be a believer in something and spewing anti-G’d hate.
Anti God hate…. by explaining how the catholic church corruption has damaged the Christian faith. Easter rarely has anything to do with the the pass over feast in most churches. Churches rather not celebrate the feasts as you’re supposed to do.
Sorry your too delayed in life to understand how screwed up the brick and mortar churches have become.
raven the atheist, sorry but I’ve been around the block quite a few times. I’m in tight with the Lord and know what you are because I ask, and therefore receive, insight. I have no clue what you use for a holy book, but it’s not a Bible. At least not the Bible proved to be accurate by scholars. My Bible states, You shall love one another. Jesus did not condemn any but religious leaders and that was for apostacy. Romans there were in plenty, and far worse then than they are today. When did God speak against Rome and Romans? Why do you believe atheist sites over Christian sites? You’re a hater, and God considers such people less than vomit.
Jesus destroyed the temple for the desecration of it and Christianity is to hate the sin and not allowing others to stumble. His coming was not to bring peace and love but divide by the sword.
The scriptures is a Torah Bible
raven, G’d said, hate sin but love the sinner. Mockers are haters and you mock. You sin against people and you force them back into sin. Each one who goes to hell because of you will be a judge against you. I know satanists who would not speak like you do against other people.
God allowed Rome to destroy the temple just as He allowed Babylon to, and see what happened to both of them.
This is all based on a 100kt blast which is one of the most common weapons in the US and UK arsenal.
And that is the problem! It is always US and UK that uses bombs; if it is nukes or phosphor bombs over German cities (like WWII) etc. or bombs in Iraq or Syria or Lybia or Belgrad or Korea or Vietnam or or or or…..
It is always the US and UK who create such desasters!
So who in the world would throw a nuke bomb in US? If not the Kabal Khasarian Mafia itself? The only threat within the US is the government itself, serving the Kabal.
Get rid of your gov entirely and all will be well and you will be safe!
The only places of war will always be Europe and Russia, the ones who actually never ever want a war, but are forced into wars initiated by the Kabal. And in the end they will blame Germany for everything AGAIN, as always!
So what do you worry in America about a nuke war?
Wars are always created outside of US and UK!
what about it ? dont see anyone nuking anything
pearl harbor was a a miltary target because FDR was a fool
911 was the elites killing our own people.
Stalingrad was war….. Isreal was war so what nobody is going to invade the us its a bit hard when you got massive oceans
If you think an ocean will stop an “invasion” of the USA, you really need to visit the border in Texas and Arizona. Shall I contact the locals in both areas to let them know to give you the “educational tour” so you can personally observe a current and continual invasion? What is your itinerary for visiting our “front lines” along the southern border?
dz: raven’s best bro, biden, plans to have all ‘undocumented’ sent to Wisconsin so they won’t be a problem for the rest of us. niio
red, the incompetent Biden won’t do squat, it will be the State Governors that need to take action like Texas Governor Abbot has started doing by bussing Illegals to DC. But three busloads over three days is not enough, they need to send three busloads or more per hour to make a real impact. Send 100,000 or more Illegals to DC and I bet our lame politicians will take notice. If we send 100,000 or more Illegals to the residences of every Libtard member of Congress that would be a message they cannot ignore. Not saying the Libtard’s would make wise decisions, but they would notice.
Russia has nuclear subs stationed shortly off out coasts. If they fire, and they can. There will be no warning or chance to shoot the missiles down. If they want to hit us, they will.
and we have them on their coast lines…. .perhaps we can all go back to worrying about our own nations.
yes, Russia, and China, they can both hit us with nuclear weapons, and we can retaliate, all with worldwide devastation. So, what are you going to do in the real-world to make a difference and protect our future generations? Vote? That might work if the results are honest, but what if the elections are corrupted and stolen again? Are you willing to fight even to the death to defend our freedom under our Constitutional Republic? If so, you are a Patriot, if not, you are a sheeple the Libtards are happy to use as cannon fodder to promote their agenda of a One World Order takeover of all free people. Make up your mind, time is short.
DZ is now letting us know we should be up in arms over a stolen election when it happens again. So what about the 2020 one that was stolen ? Oh so we can just talk big but once again it will be stolen and DZ can go back to insulting Christians and Elohim.
I’m surprised by all the down votes. You people need to do more research on your govt. if you think they’re on your side, I’ve got a peaceful protester being tortured with no due process to tell you otherwise, among MANY other things. Our govt. is a shyt stirrer to put it nicely
Oh, I get it. You understand but you’re too scared to upvote. I see.
People here are mostly just old timer Fudds who think anyone with a R in front of there name or served in the military or are a Cop will be your best friend.
So when anyone points out the flaws in this lack of critical thinking they panic and collapse.
Frog, some friendly advice, post as if you are addressing a high school political science class. You should try to present your information at a level your audience will understand and be receptive to.
Frog, forgot to mention, you can post one link per post without “waiting for moderation”. I learned that by trial and error.
“It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt” Mark Twain.
Some people may appear to not care about world situations because they don’t or won’t say anything but sometimes just observing is the best course of action. Being silent sometimes scares your enemy or opponent.
I recently told a family member don’t confuse my silence and my inaction for not being concerned or not caring.
One of my favorite sayings is, “A wise old owl sat in an oak, the more he saw, the less he spoke. The less he spoke, the more he heard. Why can’t we be more like that wise old bird?”

No, we’re not going to get rid of the government here. The latest revolution is at hand and the last battle is election day, in November. Another comes 2 years after that.

Do you use tobacco? For us, it was as important as calendula as a healer and sacred, as well. niio, in Schönheit wandeln
Hey Red, no I don’t smoke. Calendula does not need to be smoked in order to do its work.
Kraeuterhexe: No, not talking about smoking anything but tobacco, which doesn’t need to be smoked to use. One way it’s used is powdered and in pills. It knocks out the stomach flu and bladder infections. As a poultice, it kills infections. Zits to abscesses, it destroys them. It enhances endorphins and helps the mind, the brain, to absorb more oxygen.
We drying all blooms of the calendula now. Best tie to let it go to seed is late fall, when seedlings will have a better chance to survive. niio, walk in beauty
To use Calendula, ideal what you do! And also tobacco in its natural way, without smoking, YES! Ideal!
Minor quibble. If you take too much radiation from the initial blast, cancer isn’t what will kill you: breakdown of sensitive cells in your body is what does it. Epithelial cells in the gut die, and you get internal bleeding. Bone marrow dies, preventing replacement of blood cells. At significantly higher doses, heart and neurological breakdown are what will do you in. . ..
Cancer is a long-term side effect of high levels of exposure to ionizing radiation. . .
pretty much the same trash they put in the foods
down voting that your GMO Food is trash is funny.
raven: How much exposure do you get? I’m outside every chance I get. The sun is a nuclear devise. What is used to irradiate food has such a short half-life, it’s barely detectable moments after exposure. there’s just no comparison to GMO/genetic monstrosity organisms. All tests I read about irradiation and GMO said the same. Animals had no problem eating irradiated food, unless it was GMO. Irradiated or not, they avoided GMO as long as possible.
You might want to remember if you do survive the initial blast, get low as the blast will come back as the temperature cools at the blast point. Then cleanliness is next to godliness. Gamma rays will go right through you and keep going, they will do what they do and leave. Get through that, Alpha and Bata particles are more dangerous but must enter through your wounds, mouth, nose, ears, rear end etc. and will then stay there to do their damage. Cover up, mask if possible, keep them out and wash off as much as you can. If you can keep Alpha and Bata particles out of you, you have your best chance.
I live about 1 1/2 hours drive west from a facility where Nuclear bombs are stored under a mountain on an AFB at the edge of a city. Winds blow west to east here so away from me. The Waste Isolation Project for storing spent nuclear material from Labs and power plants is in the southern part of the state. Numerous uranium mines, some reclaimed and many not, are all around. The little town near me used to have uranium mills with tailing piles open to the wind that blew radioactive material into the town. The exposure there was more than double the safe numbers. Those tailing piles were not cleaned up till decades after the mines closed around 1981. Reclamation was after 2000. The old miners are still dying of cancers caused by exposures between 1954 and 1982. That’s a very well paid medical wing on a couple of hospitals. My property once was home to 28 families of miners who worked an openpit uranium mine with some underground mining also. They washed their ore trucks and water trucks in what is now my backyard. 4 miles away is the other trailer park where more of those miners brought in to open and work the mine lived. It’s still a trailer park.
I’ve lived in a high background radiation area for 45 years. There is still a lot of uranium in this area. Near open pit mining a native village experienced high rates of arthritis and MS. The miners slowly have been dying of very high rates of specific cancers. Other high numbers areas don’t seem as bad. I’ve lived here most of the last 45 years. Not sure why some die of cancers and many seem unscathed. The miners have much higher rates of cancers. That makes sense.
If someone were just after scattering radioactive materials about all they would have to do is bomb old mining areas. Winds would carry powdered materials many miles or even into the upper winds to be carried who knows how much further.
Actually the newer bombs that stuck away the oxygen and tear lungs make sense in war. Leave more structures more intact while killing the people. And no pollution to worry about. Then take it over. If you want to just terrorize the people then blow up apartment buildings and schools.
Coal mines, also have a high rad count. Not like where you are, but more than normal. niio
there are so many variables involved such as the types, tonnage, and number of the weapons, the locations and at what altitude(s) are they detonated, the weather, winds, and so on. If we are attacked with nuclear weapons, you’ll have to make many life and death decisions right then and there, and continuing making life and death decisions until your conditions are somewhat safe whether that’s where you started or where you end up.
If I were in control of the N-arsenal of our enemy I would fire an ICBM one after another every minute toward DC. At some point, our forces would either miss one or flat run out of resources to take them all out and that would be the end. This will work on any high stake target. Just a numbers game and you can’t take them all out under this plan. We live in very trying times and completely without a strand of DNA for leadership.. I told my friends when Biden/Harris took over (not elected) our enemies would try and take us down because at no point in time would the US be weaker and more clueless to an attack and now this is what we have to live with. I am afraid an attack on our homeland is forthcoming in the months ahead. I would pray to God but I seriously do not know where to start so much is wrong and seemingly unfixable at this point.
No great loss if NYC, LA, Chicago and similar places get destroyed. God would be doing us all a big favor if that happened.
^^^Yep, just found the anti-American plant^^^
why because the two major cities that caused the damage to this nation are gone now if they did nuke it. Add Hollywood to it as well.
That is how little you think of your fellow citizens? If they don’t share your political views, it would be no great loss if they were all destroyed in a nuclear war?
i view them as those who allowed it to happen
Blake: How few of them see themselves as ‘fellow’ citizens? they were taught that we;re the enemy. Many of them actively promote our, preppers’, destruction and the destruction of this nation. Look at nazism and liberalism, and you see a matched set. You see two groups dedicated to wiping out anything that stands in their way; earth for nazis first, animal rights, too many people. How many would welcome nuclear devises as a means to save the world from humanity? As humans, I pray they’ll change. As a human, I cannot see anything short of a miracle to save them from their own stupidity. niio
Only by returning Trump back into power can we try and save what’s left of this country.
Lol trump isn’t a god dude and he isn’t saving this nation
he was a anti gun fool, who has a big ego that didn’t do anything when he lost in 2020
oh yeah he did ok for the economy but he over spent like everyone else.
you mean when wisconson helped steal the election.
i told you voting is pointless but keep playing there game.
fledging, oh my. YOU are playing their game. Story goes, when the devil and his underlings were having a meeting in Hell, they discussed how to drag more people into eternal torment. It went on for day, then the devil spoke.
“While much of what was said has ketit, you miss the one thing that works best.” He looked them over and said, “Convince them we don’t exist and we own them.”
When you don’t vote, it’s like people not allowed to vote. Dems needed a few votes to knock out a conservative, they ‘found’ them along non-voters. It’s trashy 3rd world politics but it works. You don’t have to be dead to vote for a dem, but it helps. Dad was still voting long after he passed away. Then we got it stopped. Thousands of non-voters, people not registered to vote, discovered they were voting for liberals. Daschle lost his seat for that, but did no time in jail and neither did the people who did the dirty deed. Go to your voting records. If WI allows, you can access them.
Ah yes….. or with the stroke of a keyboard they add in those other votes… Or when you show up to the voting office. You find out your family already voted and its too late for you to do anything.
I think people need like you to keep that optiismim of voting but people also need people like us who are looking to see when the ball drops so you can fight.
“Charlie Foxtrot”, why are you NOT doing everything you can to defeat the Libtard ruin of the USA? You should be voting and prepping, and also promoting boycotting all the “Woke” businesses that have made their agendas known, or are you really content to make plans to just patrol your little “bubble” in Swissconsin and hope it doesn’t affect your area? Just look at the wide-open border crisis, what are you going to do if a million or more illegal aliens are dumped into Swissconsin like is happening in states all over the US? My family in other states have asked me why I stay in Southern Kalifornication, and the main reasons are my career, family responsibilities, and I am also positioned in a “front line” area if SHTF threatens national security. I decided not to move away and hide, and then bitch at everyone else like you do because they don’t agree with your opinions. I am pro-active and am my prepping in my own fashion, but in a different format than your narrow-minded Elohim cultist opinion.
crazy: Yes. All research by intelligent people indicated that. Trump did his best fighting liberals, but thanks to backstabbers we all got the shaft. Wisconsin was one of the worse states for cheating on the ballot. And, some good news, Texas SC ruled that section 230 does not protect internet big tech from being sued. FB and Twit both were named in lawsuits over pedophilia. Yet, both are experts at knocking back conservatives. niio
yeah cause the swamp got drained…… hiliary was arrested and mexico is paying for the wall ….. er…
It was nice speeches and rants by him but he outspent obama raised the debt and sure the good news our economy was doing ok because we printed more dollars into it.
raven, sigh…You missed it completely. You allowed this to happen, so live with it and do better next time. while it’s laughable, a few thousands dollars here and there, it’s a major step forward. The sacred cows now have targets painted on them. Hillary the genocidal beast is no longer the beloved of her owner, soros. Voters have forced this to a head and the broken sewer is being exposed in a different way, but in a way Trump fought for.
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angles in heaven, but my Father only
Are TR 82 Nuclear Blast maps of contact areas still relevant?
I searched for “TR 82 Nuclear Blast map” and a lot of websites show up, but nothing specific, then I searched for just “TR 82” and websites for Interstate Route 82 from Oregon to Washington show. So, what exactly are TR 82 Nuclear Blast maps? Please include links specifically to TR 82 Nuclear Blast maps.
An experiment took place, whereby a group of people, held the intent to bring peace to a war zone. They visited the country, still holding the intent, they continued their prays. The conflict ended. The media are instrumental in getting humans to lower their vibration and give their energy to to whatever they are promoting, resulting in its manifestation. As, I don’t own a television, read newspapers or listen to a radio, I have no idea what is being promoted. One news agency decides what the narrative will be. False Emotion Appearing Real. – FEAR. Research, Research, Research your way to the truth.
10But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
11For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
12So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Amen every knee shall bow to him
Claude, I see someone has selectively” start censoring your blog. If you want to censor, please do it right.
1.) set the rules with very explicate and non-negotiable parameters, such as: All posts must pertain to the prepping subject. Posts deviating from prepping will be considered a violation. (This means all the soapbox sermon preachers will be in violation). Intentionally posting lies about, name calling, or antagonizing other posters is a violation and you will be banned.
2.) establish a verifiable login method such as by IP Address so posters cannot post under another bloggers name, as I proved can be done. If you cannot verify by IP Address, then it requires much more scrutiny and research to verify but will be required to remain valid.
3) all violators will be PERMANTLY banned from all Ask a Prepper and affiliated blogs, such as Homestead Survival and Urban Survival.
I can live with that, can you?
red, copied from a post far above but I didn’t see the Reply icon so I’m posting it new.
“A lot of scientists today are looking into the alien-sperm seed beginnings of humanity. Any Creationist of any leaning, YE, ID, OE and so on will ask, Then who created the aliens?”
This is the type of questions I ask, and also questions like “Since your God created the aliens, then who, or what, created God?” I asked similar questions when I was much younger, was lied to, deceived, and falsely accused of being a heretic by religious leaders for “questioning the existence of God”, so I rejected the false prophets hiding behind their religious facades and went my own way. Many years later I determined the closest thing I am in regards to religion is Agnostic, always questioning, always seeking.
I can’t say anything about Aliens.
But I can say this to you dz.
All things shell be known, when you stand before the Glory of GOD The Creator.
God will give you all the awnsers, at that time.
dz hear me… Those that ridiculed you for asking anything about GOD. We’re not true in God, because if they were, then they would have been able to give you a truthful awnser. I am not those kind of people.
I surly am not here to lie to you or deceive you in any way. and know one, knows who created God,
He is SPIRIT…
We want to know, what is and what is not. but sometimes we have to just rely on faith. when I got to adopt my son. I had to pay for his lawyer in full before he was born. lots and lots of money to adopt. but at any time the mother, even up to the birth, could renig on the adoption.
Then we lose everything. All of it. But by my faith in God and prayer thru Jesus name. I became a Dad in the year of our lord, in 2000.
I don’t know if you have kids, but if so then you know how I fill about GOD and Jesus. I can’t have kids nor can my wife. Know my son was raised in the church. but this world is a really nasty place and he got in trouble. at 17 and now facing a twenty to seventy yr sentences. I will not get to hold my son ever again. He also dose not believe in God. but we have been praying and he is coming around a tiny bit. we been talking more about GOD. Just to let you know that I am here for anyone, if they need help.
dz We are here because, I fill to give what we have. So others can maybe hear something that might just spark the fire back in them. So I know God brings us together for a very serious reason,
“helping each other”…
dz: Who created G’d is a philosophical question and the reply is, “Why would G’d need to be created?” 🙂
Seeker isn’t always fun, but is interesting. When I left atheism, age 14, the last place anyone in the family (big family, then, 20,000 in one county, alone 🙂 would want to end up is Christianity. It was blamed for every ill we experienced, but, as historians pointed out, don’t blame Creator for the works of apostates. I do not argue religion, as many Muslims, Buddhists, and so on find out. I discuss, I respond. I tried the old religions and they aimed me to Jesus. Tried Islam, and that was joyful in respects to Jesus. Buddhists, they said if you wish to escape the wheel of life and punishment in Hell, study Jesus. Don’t blame Creator for the acts of apostates, the hypocrites. since coming to Christ, a lot of very strange things have happened that have no explanation. Too many times I was beaten and left for dead, attempts to poison me, car wrecks I walked away from, walked over copperhead snakes and was not struck, covered with bees and not stung, and so on. Too many times I saw people, enough in the family, who had died return to life. If you see that, you see why so many physicians are believers. You will see scientists who leave atheism because of the awe in their findings. Keep the peace in your heart. No matter what, I’ll still call you bro. niio
Hey, when you cut kohlrabi, cut them above the bottom leaf node/scar. Most will regrow from there and you get a bush with a kohlrabi at each tip. Most will survive even our cozy 110 F summers with winds up to 20 MPH and 4% humidity. Keep them watered and fed. Any that survive thru to next spring will go to seed, and that makes the seeds more viable here. But, if the temps go over 85, it blasts the pollen. I allow the lower blooms to mature and cut the plant off to dry. niio
red, I have not tried to grow kohlrabi and the wife has never brought any home so it’s an unknown to us. I did try carefully cutting the new shoots from the center of red onions, placed them in about 1/4 inch of water in the east facing kitchen window, and have four that rooted and are now planted in pots outside. If they survive I intend to let at least two go to seed for my seed bank, My wife left about three inches of the leaves on the bottom section of a Chinese cabbage, which I now have in 1/4 inch of water in the kitchen window, that greened right up in a couple days, and after about 2-3 weeks it now has some very tiny roots starting, and this morning I counted seven new sprouts around the base maybe about 1/2 inch tall. When they get about two inches, or if the base starts to decay too much (learning curve from the red onions), I will try to cut them apart and plant them outside in pots.
I have potatoes in containers in two different locations about 50′ apart, and the leaves of the older group in potato bags is being severely eaten while the other newer group in plastic containers is untouched so far. I’ve been looking for the culprits but so far only found one small caterpillar, about two inches long and 1/4 inch diameter, and a dark coffee color. It was not the usual Tomato hornworms we get, so I’ll have to search online for pictures to identify what it was.
Lots of things are flowering and the hummingbirds have returned, along with lots of flies, earwigs, and ants, which is normal when it’s warm here, but very few bees. I am wondering if some disease might have hit the bee colonies since last year and they have not recovered – we should have a lot more bees by now.
dz: Bee are hurt by the drought. I have a few honey bees around, and some bumblebees. No yellowjacket wasps yet. No moisture for 2 years means no nectar for adults, and they need that to live.
There are 2 main types of kohlrabi, giants that are starchy, and smaller ones that taste like a mild cabbage heart. it gets planted in late summer and does well all thru winter into the next summer. The greens are good, but a little bitter. Other than that, we have collards. There are a few tree kale that are working out, so far, but they can’t handle the wind.
Was the caterpillar a cutworm? They’ll climb a plant and feed, cutting off leaves and small branches. I watch lizards dig them up and run off with them.
I just stuck a pound of red onions, a flat of green beans and one of corn. if some of the onions go to seed, that’s OK. Manyana, two rows of peanuts (TN red, it did great here). Then running around planting chilacayote squash (AKA 7 year melon) and calabacita (tatume in Texas). I like chilacayote because it’s a climber with vines like steel cables. No matter how big the fruit gets, it will hang there. Some folks in Kali told me they had them in the trees for years. Calabacita is a good squash to keep or to eat when young. In fact, it’s the only ‘summer’ squash I like. Calabacita is prolific and rampant, but likes to run over the ground.
Once the squash are in, I can relax a while. The new fig needs full sun. Come fall, the loquat goes in, and the Concord grape. I have one Red Flame grape left from the cuttings, and if that doesn’t find a home, it can go in a bed. niio
red, I searched for cutworm, and it looked like it was probably a black cutworm. I have not found any others so far.
I also searched for “calabacita”, and it looks similar to the Fordhook Zucchini’s that do well here, but the Fordhook’s are more of an “umbrella” compared to other zucchini that run out on vines. I plant Bak Choi under the “umbrella”, so they get dappled light instead of direct sun and they seem to do a lot better.
my sweet corn started sprouting but it looks like the birds (probably crows) have been pulling them out, so I planted more. I can always thin them out later if they get too crowded.
dz: calabacita means little pumpkin. Calling it a zucchini is bad! so bad I’d spank you for that derogatory remark if you weren’t bigger and meaner than me LOL.
If it can thrive here, your place would be paradise. niio
dz: And, they do well here even under 110F sun with heavy wind. No umbrella! They like full sun to thrive. And, a good way to keep anything from eating plants is DE. It’s how i kept the dog from eating all the watermelons last year. niio
red, DE, as in diatomaceous earth? I have about 40 LB’s of food grade DE and dust sometimes, but probably not enough. I don’t know why DE would stop your dog from eating anything, it’s supposed to be good to add some in their food. My dogs, especially one shepherd-mix in particular, likes to go around and lick the dirt in some of my containers, she even did it after I sprinkled and dusted with sulfur powder to combat mold and fungus.
dz: After I dusted the melons, he only stole ones I missed. why did you sulfur the beds? A little,yes, but to keep the dog off them? If plant leaves start to yellow, then I sulfur. Our soil is 8.5+ lime. Nothing will root thru lime. One thing about sulfur is, when wet in all that lime, it makes CO2, which all plants need, and will drive off ground squirrels. Mind, these rodents can burrow as deep as 10 feet to escape the heat. Right now, packrats are all over and getting baited. niio
I dusted with sulfur when I was getting white spot fungus, and also sprinkled some on the soil of any plants with yellowing leaves, including my lemon bush, but not to stop the dogs – they don’t eat the fruits, just a little of the dirt once in a while, probably because some of it has a little composted steer manure mixed in and they smell it. The sulfur powder and a little fertilizer helped, but I’m still a novice and still learning.
red ant, we have two kids, both on their own now but raised as freethinkers with good morals, and were allowed to attend or not attend any church services or religious activities as they chose, so they went a few times then decided not to continue. We encouraged them to be involved in activities like sports, music, art, crafts, and outdoor activities as long as we as parents deemed their activities acceptable. We were very responsible, supportive, and always maintained vigilant oversight of them, allowing them reasonable but limited freedoms and privileges, while also making sure we did not become overprotective “helicopter parents”. When they got hurt, if not serious we used that as an opportunity to do self-diagnosis and have them learn some first-aid on themselves, and other times it was a trip to medical to get sutures or set a broken bone. They always learned to get back up and do better next time. One is now a Registered Nurse (with no student loan debt), and the other is enlisted in the Army. I am content they grew up healthy, have respectable morals, and learned to be responsible for themselves.
They sound like good people.
Nothing wrong with freethinkers.
Hope all stays well with y’all.
But remember; all your good, comes from GOD. and only thru Him.
be strong in your walk in faith.
red ant, you are wrong, all my good comes from me by the freethinking choices and actions I take. I know who I am and why my opinions about religion are the way they are, and there is nothing you or anyone else are going to post on any blog to convince me otherwise. Now would you please stop making false statements and preaching at me about your religious beliefs. As red has pointed out, it’s annoying and drives people away, or is that your intention? If so, you are succeeding.
Then give me the respect to do as you say. Then Stop Damming my GOD.
Then the respect shall be giving back…
You have your own intentions.
As far as RED, he has his own fight with his religious walk.
The same but very different.
just remember… Respect…
it shall be done. dz
red ant, peace. We all come to the Lord in our own way and in His timing. He will do His will. Allow that and be patient. niio
Red, I do remember when you said some will not hear and to leave them behind.
The hard part is, that Jesus said leave the 99, to go and find the “one” lost sheep.
But that’s okay, concentrate on the lost sheep that are Hot, leave the cold one’s behind.
The wolf’s are waiting for the easy Slater. Remember you can’t serve GOD and your self @ the same time…
Funny you say that, to be patient. I prayed for patients when I was about 19. That, I am very good at…
lol been “patient waiting for JESUS”. He’s only been gone for two day’s..
I find that you are a blessed person Red;. keep doing what you are doing. it’s good…
red ant, now you lie, I do not “damning your God”, but I am going to start damning you for your selfish dishonesty. Have you considered that the reason you and your wife were “barren” is because your “God” deemed it so? And then did you reject that possibility because it did not fit into your insecure and selfish desires? Why did YOU fail as parent? Did you preach at your son like you do to me and annoyed him so much he rejected what you said? I can understand that, I reject what you say. Is it moral for you to pass the buck for your failures onto others and try to console your insecurity by using an excuse “but this world is a really nasty place”? I could go on but there is no point, you are locked into your self-pity and delusions that you are somehow doing any good by ignoring reality. Preach away, it has failed you and yours, and I will not be esily deceived by any “false prophets” like you.
just as you said to me. no one can change me. You make me laugh. God has his way and it is only his way, that it will be done.
Not by our way
The reason why me and my wife can’t bear children is for God, not for me to know. But I can surly tell you that when My GOD blessed us with our son, both me and my wife gave praise to GOD for his love for US…
My son was all so , what they call a Herion baby… That’s the reason why GOD gave him to us. Because most people won’t take them type of baby’s. He did go thru almost a year of nothing but withdraws.
So I have some very thick skin.
Can’t say much I haven’t all ready heard.
but you do make me chuckle.
red ant: the key word is the lamb. Who are the sheep? Believers. Then who is the lamb? A believer who strayed. Not a non-believer. G’d respects us, as much as we allow. If someone refuses to listen, then respect them. Jesus is your example! Love one another. Love even your enemies. Who is one of His favorite examples of one who loves? The Samaritan, someone who was an apostate and hated by believers. I have Muslims in the family. I do not rush at them telling them they’re going to hell. they know they are–their version of purgatory, that fantasy. No, we talk, we discuss, and some are moving into Christianity–be careful doing that, I had a fatwah against me by an imam in NYC. But, net result is, act in love. I’ve heard of fanatics set to kill us infidels stopped by a question, why do you think your religion is right? Then come back with the Bible. He might still kill you, but he’ll cry about it, and mourn, and maybe see you as a martyr and give up to G’d’s love, at last. A lot of us die daily and god with joy and a lot of killers are converting and fighting against G’d’s enemies, and dying for it, but dying in love. From each drop of blood a new believer sprang. die well for love of Him, but first, live for love of Him. niio
dz: red ant is not raven.
Here’s something you might like to see. Aztec weaponry and how they very nearly defeated Spain and their 1 million warriors from the coast.
Believe me when I say this. God is the giver of all things. With out God, You only have your self. That will not be enough.
I am 100 percent in Jesus as he is in me. He is perfect in every way. I am just a sinner save by Grace thru My Faith in Him.
There’s power is in His name…
Stay close to him.
red ant: If I may offer you something from G’d’s love: If saved, you’re no longer a sinner, but saved. paul told us he was the worse of all believers, doing what he did not want to do, and not doing as he should, but he was no longer a sinner. You were saved from being a sinner. niio
So Red you are telling me, that once saved always saved.
I am a sinner because I confess my sins to God. every day…
So if I sin then that is okay. Jesus said go and sin no more. but if I stumble I am still a sinner.
Jesus died for our sins and we are still considered sinners until the second coming. That we will be until, we are transformed with our new body’s.
We can’t be sinless, while we still live on this old earth
Repent, that will help in keeping us on the right track, when we sin…
red ant: What did Jesus say? Not one shall take you from Me. But, you can walk away from Him.
If you are saved, washed in the blood, led by the Holy Spirit, why are you a sinner? A sinner is someone not saved. A sinner reeks like road kill to Father. If saved, you have every tight to go boldly to the throne, no? Sinner is an attitude. It’s based on arrogance.
Yes, repent when you backslide. Repent when you need legalism like raven does. But, you’re a new man, born of G’d. niio
Okay, I just went thru and found that it say that when you accept Jesus. we become a new creation and are know as Saints.
So that is the reason why the anti Christ will wage war against the Saints. By that we need to work harder to not sin in any way to stay at the best side of being called a Saint.
okay you are right
this is why I like to talk about the truth of the bible.
I will read more on this…
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
I am not an educated person so I can’t bandy words with anyone.
I believe I have had prayers answered immediately that have only strengthened my faith. Were they coincidence? Maybe, but I really don’t think so. Were they earth changing? Not to anyone but me….unless it changed something for someone I told my story to. Have I had prayers that I didn’t think were answered? Of course.
This will probably sound silly to most folks. I was coon hunting with my wife’s great uncle and his hunting buddy one night. The dogs treed a coon. I climbed the tree a shook the coon out. It was late so we caught the dogs and went to the truck and went home. When we got to the truck I realized I had lost my billfold. The next afternoon after work my wife, our two very small children and I went to where we had been hunting. I was sure I could find the tree. I looked and could not find that tree. My wife said let’s say a prayer so we sat down on a big rock and prayed. When we finished and stood up I turned around and said there’s the tree I climbed. It was only about 10-15 feet from where I was standing. I had walked all around it but didn’t see it. I walked over to the base of the tree and there laid my billfold.
Have I had doubts even after my prayers were answered…absolutely…we’re my answered prayers coincidences?? Maybe, but I chose to believe it was answered so I could share it. I’ll admit I have only one story that really stands out in my memory and I’m a great grandpa. 🙏
red, I double checked searching “calabacita” and selecting images, and it shows globes and longer squash like Zucchini’s, and yes, Zucchini’s are a squash. The link you posted shows the globe type Tatume Squash, and says it likes to sprawl, which I really do not have the space for right now, I’d rather use the space for potatoes.
dz: In Texas, it’s called tatume. Calabacita means little pumpkin and that’s what mature ones look like.
My potatoes start to bloom, then stop, then start again. It’s getting too hot here for them, but I live in hope of some potato salad. For myself, better sweet potatoes, which usually produce by the bushel. No clue what the problem was with the carrots, but now, finally, they’re growing well. I tend to scatter things all over the garden beds. But, I like yucca root best and that’s free. Grain, mesquite and cornflour. Good cornflour should keep for years without insect infestation because of lye used to make it. There’s a few hund lbs of pinto beans and more to come. They make a very good flour and that’s what they were bred for. niio
I am also having a hard time getting carrots to sprout, I probably should have planted them in February, but then we got late frost into March so they would have probably died anyway. I have not been going out three to four times a day to mist them this year, which is probably what it would take, it’s been too dry and windy, so they dry out fast either before they sprout, or after which kills them before they break the surface. I do have some carrots that wintered over that are doing well and going to seed. I’ve been clipping off the stalks when they seeds look mature and dry enough and will be added to my seed bank for fall and next spring planting. My potatoes are doing much better than last year, and the ones that were half eaten this spring seem to be recovering a little, others that are untouched are doing very well, and none are flowering so I hope to get some good tubers. I’m growing two containers of sweet potatoes again and going to try something different to “cure” them. About September or October while it’s still in the 80’s-90’s I will stop watering them, let the vines dry out, and leave the tubers in the warm dry soil for several weeks to “cure”, pull one up every week or two to see if it got cured, and how long it takes.
dz: Carrots are a cool-to-warm weather crop. Heat makes them bitter. I start mine in September and continue planting into November. All I do is sprinkle the seed on the ground, water well, dust with DE, and cover with cardboard to keep them moist. Kyoto carrots are a short day and do very well in our winter months.
Potatoes were always such an easy crop. Then I came back to AZ, LOL. I’m not into them, anyway, too much carbs, but like noodles from them and hotdog soup (potato soup with hotdogs). If you want to keep critters from eating the potatoes, plant black radishes or China Rose. Green seed pods are very good. niio
I will say 3 words: Fallout & Nuclear Winter(which could last 5 years), nuff said.
