TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

strawberries


]source

You will want to choose a spot that has full sunshine, as strawberries do not grow well in a cold spot. Also be sure the ground has not been used for growing strawberries or potatoes for at least three years. Clear the ground of all debris and remove any weeds. Add as much organic compost as you can to insure the best crop possible and be sure to loosen soil about eight inches deep. Hoe and rake the area well.

Rows should be spaced three to four feet apart and mounds at least twelve inches apart. Rows are best for June-bearing plants and mounds for day neutral and everbearing. Space your plants twelve to eighteen inches apart. Dig holes for the young transplants, but not too deep. Make sure the crown of your plant – the chunky part above the roots – is above the soil. Using your hand, firmly press the ground around the plants, then water them very well. If planting seed, follow the planting guidelines that come with your seed.

Keep your strawberries well watered. They are shallow-rooted plants and dry out very quickly in hot weather. Letting your strawberry patch dry completely will adversely affect your harvest.

When the small fruit start to appear – late spring or early summer – cover the ground around your plants with a fairly thick layer of straw. If possible, use a “weed free” straw. Barley straw is the best. If no straw is available, use black plastic. Covering the ground around your strawberries helps to keep weeds down and keeps the berries from sitting on the ground. Contact with the ground will cause the berries to rot very quickly. It also gives the slugs easier access to eating your crop.

This is a very important part of caring for your strawberry patch. Your patch will continue to be productive for three to four years as long as the plants are maintained. Cut back your plants, using a mower if you have a large patch or a hand trimmer for smaller areas. Leave about an inch of the plant above the crown of the plant. Rake the leaves. If they are disease-free add to your compost pile or cultivate into the ground around your plants. Feed well – see below. Remove the weeds and thin the plants to twelve inches apart. Water well to promote new growth. Repeat this process as often as necessary, but no more than once yearly.

banana


]Cold hardy bananas

Already in the 1930s ]Musa basjoo [not edible] was crossed with Musa 'Mysore' successfully. In each of the 10 bunches was one seed found, total 10 seeds were found and 5 of them were germinated and yielded viable and healthy plants.

Musa sikkimensis [3-5 m] takes:
- cold [-12 degrees]
- wind
- and is edible

The Blue Java is cold and wind resistant and has fruits that taste like custard with an ice cream consistency [considered by some to be the best tasting banana].


Calliandra and sesbania sesban trees planted among banana trees in a forest garden - their leaves are used to make compost and improve the fertility of soil to increase banana production. As calliandra trees grow, they also provide nectar for bees.
