Protecting Yourself from Potential Food Shortages
Imagine if you asked yourself this question a couple years ago:
“Are you worried about getting essentials from your grocery store?”
You probably would have said: “Nope.”
But you can probably name more than a handful of things that you’ve had to “hunt” for during the past couple years.
And I don’t just mean toilet paper or hand sanitizer. I mean things like your everyday food for your family.
For example, increased food prices, some empty spots on the grocery store shelves, or items not being available at your favorite restaurant.
“Food producers have struggled with shortages, bottlenecks, transportation, weather, and labor woes, all of which have caused food prices to rise. The end is not in sight.” (Source: Washington Post)
You might not think that’s a big deal, but it’s definitely impacting our food supply and there’s never been a better time to start growing your own vegetables and herbs. W

Successful Gardening With Limited Resources
What if you could feed a family of 4 fresh, wholesome veggies through the entire growing season with just one 100 sq ft. garden?
It may sound incredible, but it’s true. Here’s the story… When your host, Stacey Murphy, first started gardening, she didn’t have much room in her yard. And there was already a really big shade tree in it to boot.
Not being one to give up easily, she decided to try an experiment one day… She grew one row of cabbage in full sunlight with no shade. And the other row of cabbage she put just under the tree with a tiny bit of shade (2 hours worth). What happened next was remarkable…
The sunlit cabbage grew to over 16 lbs at harvest!… while the shaded cabbage weighed a measly 4.5lbs.
And it took another 60 days to reach a harvest!
Which is really wild when you think about it. That’s nearly 4X the harvest from just an extra 2 hours of direct sunlight. Or if you want to start thinking about something really interesting, that’s about double the harvest in about half the space.
But it doesn’t stop there. This small little tweak is just one of several big-harvest secrets that Stacey wants to share with you.
