    Is it really illegal to grow food and fruit trees in your yards in America?
    Someone please tell me.
    I find that hard to believe. It’s conceivable that it may happen in the
    future though.
    I think another thing that you all should be looking into is the medicinal
    properties of plants. There are species for healing cancers, diabetes,
    heart problems, asthma etc for each culture/country. Although, if you are
    eating mainly from nature, you will need less of the medicinal plants!

    thats florida for ya , they want to tax your yard sales – Hello !!! Here in
    Georgia were big on AG and were zoned AG , even in town people have gardens
    and chickens as long as your neighbors dont complain – idea is you give
    your neighbors free eggs and they wont say a word , all summer long my AG
    neighbors in my suburbian Ag neighborhood have brought me Okra , zucchini,
    yellow sq and tomatoes , of course bake them all zucchini bread and they
    will definitely remember you from year to year, my neighbors bring me food
    and I bring my neighbors soup ….during the winter months …I guess here
    in GEORGIA we truly are hospitable , but even the local farmers market at
    the depot does not require you to have a tax id because profits made on
    your garden veggies and stuff is not an issue here , when the police show
    up , make sure you offer them some free tomatoes and smile real big – and
    they will be delighted and smile right back , that is why I dont live in
    florida anymore ….. also kids can sell there veggies in their parents
    workplaces and businesses , at our local insurance agency we have
    elementary kids who sell garden veggies at their pawpaw’s agency , and my
    sons FFA TEACHER smokes pigs and sells boston butts and smoked jerky with
    out a licence , because he donates a percentage to ffa ….I also buy my
    veggies from our local farmers when they have seasonal veggies …. but
    most folks grow summer gardens and a few old timers do grow year round . I
    learned how to cann here ….glad I live in GEORGIA ….BECAUSE THESE FOLKS

    “Food Laws” actually have another dimension — All those laws regarding
    “drugs” do NOT even mention heroin, cocaine, marijuana, etc. they simply
    refer to “controlled substances”.

    This allows the government to “legally” make anything legal by simply
    redefining it as a “controlled substance” — including water” artichokes,
    apples, etc. This s NOT to dissimilar to what the Nazis did — initially,
    all those “laws” that were used to set up the genocidal death camps applied
    only to the criminally insane; and were supported by the damn fool German
    populace as “necessary for a functionally safe society” — sound familiar?

    Once in place, however, the Nazi administration simply expanded the
    definition of who the laws applied to — and many a smug, self-important,
    German supporter of “law and order” was sudden shocked to find out they had
    been added to the “undesirable group” — unfortunately, they learned this
    on their way to the boxcars destined for the death camps.

    If you want to learn more about this, I suggest your read Milton Mayer’s
    classic, “They Thought They Were Free”

    Great information!!! Thank you sir.

    Really nice systematic advice. I had a really bad picture of how I can hide
    a garden and should I do it at all in the first place.

    Though thinking about it now, I probably have a strange problem, lol. I
    live in siberia, I’m young and really considering living in a village. Now,
    I have an upper hand here, because people still have huge chunk of the
    homesteadbushcraft culture. My family moved to a town only when I was
    born. My grandparents still homestead to some degree and I was lucky enough
    to(have them in the first place, actually, but also:) live with them for,
    like, a month in some summer days when I was really young. Maybe it was
    kinda boring back then, but now, thinking about it – it was absolutely
    beautiful. I’m not sure how to explain this experience, but I think every
    kid should have an experience like this – maybe to sort out their psyche a
    bit, maybe to give them a sense of Nature, its ennobling Beauty.

    …yeah, that. So the problem is that people know maybe at least twice more
    of the things from your list. No idea about commercial farmers(or
    whatever), too. Maybe I would have to make a ‘test garden’ or maybe even a
    few and check for the footprints, changes. Or maybe it’s all for the better
    and I will have a privilege of cooperating with some knowledgeable people.

    Anyway, thanks for the advice and just general content you’re making. Being
    honest, at first I had doubts for some reason, but you do have something
    interesting and special to say, to the prepper community including. Even if
    my ‘hidden garden’ ends up being “useless”, it still will be a good sport
    to hide it from kids liking to steal(they have just nothing better to do,
    of course). Probably going to modify our regular gardens, making it more
    ‘boring’, haha. Really interesting how cheap-adrenaline-seekers will react
    to that, if any are still around.

    It is very refreshing to see for once, someone with an actual brain in
    their head and whom is using it instead of submitting to big brother’s
    programming attempts.

    Dude you are my hero guerrilla gardening at its best so glad I found your
    channel keep it up I also hide trees in the most inconvenient of places
    supporting tree root espionage and remember where every one is so I will
    feed on in the future.

  11. Daniel Snedden says:

    I have down some guerrilla gardening with very limited success. 4 legged
    animals are the biggest problem and then the 2 legged variety. I planted 16
    fruit trees in a wildlife area within 60 miles of me. Only 1 pear tree
    survived. I had deer fencing and steel lug posts around each tree to
    protect them from the deer. It worked great. Unfortunately the following
    year the state decided to mow the top of this particular hill after
    ignoring it for at least 15 years. The workers cut down all but the one
    pear tree, took my tools hidden in the trees and high grass. I planted
    blueberries but the animals ate them down to the dirt. The lone pear does
    have a ton of fruit each year so I can say I was successful?! I will try
    your suggestion of planting them in with other natural trees existing in
    the area. Protecting them from the deer is the only catch. It is difficult
    to do without it being noticeable. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Sorry for troubles good sir The gift of Mamosa trees near there incoming
    water line should be a good way to thank them for that. Once it takes root
    it’s impossible to get rid of without heavy-duty chemicals which near their
    water line would be funny. Religions only mask what we should truly fear
    all along mother nature.

    Thanks for the ideas and the behavioral aspect of people regarding
    identifying food. I have down some caching and learned a lot about how to
    do it so that everything is not ruined. Water is the main problem. I used 5
    and 6 gallon plastic buckets with rubber gasket lids. Never lay them on
    their side. Water will leak in. Use sealed mylar bags to protect everything
    inside. Never plant near surface water like a creek or pond. Water will
    leak in. Check on them regularly at least once or twice per year. I had
    mine on state wildlife land and the oil company decided to build a road
    within a few feet of my cache. Oops. Almost lost them. Also do not bury too
    deep. I left garden trowels shoved into the grass at the ends of the cache
    rows. 10 years later I had to use a mattock and spade to dig them up. It
    was as much work as it was to dig the holes in the first place. I have
    retrieved all of my caches and have been using some of the items during my
    unemployment and missed work for health reasons. You don’t need a WROL
    situation to use your preps. I am still trying to figure out how and where
    to recache my supplies. No more deep holes. I need something requiring less
    physical labor to cache and retrieve. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
    Thanks again for the video!

    I don’t know if you received a response to your question about taro. I do
    cook with the elephant ears that are sold in places like Walmart in the
    garden section. There are different varieties but I don’t use the fancy
    type just the regular ones. I grate them or put them in the food processor
    peeled but raw to make a fritter filled with cooked ground meat with onion
    and tomato sauce. I form them into a football shape around the meat. (If
    round they may be too thick to get them to cooked well) I deep fry them or
    freeze them raw wrapped in plastic or separated with wax paper and a
    freezer bag so they don’t stick together. I also boil them and eat in
    chunks with olive oil or mashed like potatoes. I plant some outside and
    bring them indoors during cold season (Minnesota). I usually buy the big
    ones for cooking. They CAN NOT be eaten raw because they have calcium
    oxalate crystals and if you have never grated them before your hand may
    react and the outer layer peel a bit (like a mild sunburn), so it’s best to
    use the cheap surgical gloves or the food processor. I’m used to taro so my
    hands are no longer affected. Cooking them deactivates the crystals. Love
    your channel. I’m lucky to have four white oaks and a maple all over 80
    feet tall (except the part of shading most of my yard). Like you I plant a
    lot of things that people would not recognize as food.


    Thank You from Australia. SPIRITUAL PREPPER.

    No more shaving for me. Stay close. I’ll make more vids and promise not to
    trim my beard.

    I just did a video called free food for life, or something like that. But
    today I planted another 50 prickly pear cactus, only with no stickers. They
    are called spineless and taste delicious if you prepare them properly. I
    planted some in dry areas and some in wet areas. I will have to wait and
    see which ones do well.

    Great video. 🙂 I find it interesting that as soon as I start stumbling
    onto things that interest me (the latest being sunchokes), I find myself
    poking through your videos – and there is my encouragement! 🙂

    I did a little research and found out that you have to wait till the
    weather gets warm before you start grafting. But I have located a whole
    bunch of wild persimmon trees out in the woods, and I have a whole bunch of
    great big juicy cultivated Japanese Persimmons. I may not be able to do
    much more than that. I don’t really have too many other kinds of rootstocks
    to graft to.

    Disguising food with other plants is an EXCELLENT idea. I’m gonna implement
    that system in my front yard. Thanks for sharing.
