If you have a small garden as I do, you can still create a beautiful vegetable and even fruit garden.
How to create a vegetable garden in a small place? A vegetable garden doesn’t need much space; it is not a problem if you have enough fences and walls to cover up with peas and beans or blackberries and pears.
I have seen a video showing a man who lives in Las Vegas and has designed his small backyard into a vegetable garden where he lives from. Even in the hot desert, you can still grow vegetables and fruits using excellent compost for your soil. The good thing about deserts is there will be no snails like we have here. But there are also many other videos, like this one. Please, check it out!
In the Netherlands, we have much rain, even in summer, but the temperatures are around 20- 24 degrees, which is ideal for growing vegetables. And for snails that love our vegetables.;)
In these times, it is excellent to live self-sufficient and be able to take care of yourself. Well, it is delicious to eat healthy vegetables and fruits, and the taste is so yummy! Have you ever tasted the difference between natural and artificial vegetables you can buy in the supermarket?
Living a Self-Sufficient Life
To live a self-sufficient life is not difficult, but here in the Netherlands, we are controlled and can hardly use energy that the energy companies do not regulate. If you are trying to use an independent supply, I am sure that we would receive problems because the government controls us. We pay more than 50 % tax on our energy, and the government always tries to milk the population!
The energy industry has created a monopoly, but nowadays, in the money fight, the companies have much competition that suppresses the prices, which is beneficial for the customer. We can choose! And they are fighting very aggressively for their customers.
If we buy the energy, the companies receive money. As the population, we have been bombarded with contracts promising us to save money on our energy. However, 2022 will be an expensive year where our gas prices have gone up very much. Families nearly can’t put the heating on because they can afford the money for the energy. The winter is still coming, and I hope it will be mild for all of us.
However, talking about being independent of the government and listening to Klaus Schwab from the World Economic Forum, I would rather live independent of the bank system, energy, petrol, and food supply very quickly. It doesn’t sound good to me that others want to control the world. And everything we need.
One crucial step to independence is creating a new internet, but healthy and freeway, without censorship and suppression. I am sure it would have an impact to be independent of the digital world, and in this manner, flee control.
It would mean to design a completely new system but still be democratic and free. We are the people, and we have to keep together against people who want to control and manipulate us because they have the money. We don’t need such people who try to force their will onto us. The government is elected to make sure that our needs are met and that we can healthily increase productivity while having enough for meeting our basic needs, like food, water, healthy air, etc.
Living a self-sufficient life means owning electricity, energy supply, water, food, a piece of land to grow our vegetables and animals.
How to Create a Vegetable Garden?
Even if you have a small garden, there are many possibilities of growing vegetables, fruits, and berries. The first thing you need to do is sit down and think about the position of the sun and the quality of your soil. If your soil is problematic, you need to use compost and fertilizer to improve it until it is rich and of high quality. Always buy organic fertilizer and compost.
You can make your compost very quickly and use it for your vegetables and berries. A high-quality soil will give you a high-quality harvest. When you have figured out the sun’s position, you can start to sow seeds or plant little seedlings according to their needs. Otherwise, they have difficulties growing, becoming long and thin, or staying small. Maybe they wouldn’t grow at all. I have experienced all of that.
To prevent snails from destroying your vegetables, you could plant garlic and certain flowers between your vegetables, keeping snails and other bugs away. Mixing vegetables and herbs helps very much with nasty bugs. Don’t use pesticides and herbicides that are not good for the environment and yourself. There are many alternative methods to prevent insects from eating your vegetables, and especially your seedlings.
You could plant an appletree or another fruit tree, as well as many berries. Your walls and fences are great for beans and peas, tomatoes that need much sun and protection. If you plant herbs between your vegetables, you also prevent snails and other bugs from consuming your vegetables, and you help the bees and butterflies to find enough polls and nectars. It is much fun to grow your vegetables, but it can be overwhelming to process them all when you harvest your produce. You could give the neighbors from your harvest, and I am sure that they would love it. When my peachtree had a great year and I was blessed with so many peaches, we gave our neighbors peaches and jam. I do freeze vegetables and peaches or grapes for another time when I prepare more jam. Owning a freezer is a blessing!
A very convenient method of growing vegetables on a balcony is to plant them in plant pots. I do this on my terrace, where I keep some vegetables in pots. We still have many flowers and plants in our garden because I restart growing my vegetable.
Years ago, I had already created my own vegetable garden, but I was so busy working that I had no time for the garden. Now I organize my time around my job and the vegetable garden, hoping it will work out very well. Harvesting your vegetables and fruits is the best we can do for our health. The taste is fantastic!:)
A Community Garden For All
Well, what I like is the idea of working in the garden together, having the same goal. If all neighbors would come together and create a beautiful huge vegetable garden, we would benefit from this. Nobody needs to be hungry, but there is enough food for everybody. A community could have some animals, like chicken for eggs and meat, and cows for the milk.
I looked up the internet for producing my own cheese, a healthy cheese. It is not difficult! I don’t eat cheese, but my husband loves it, and I would always prefer sheep and goats before cows because the stomach might digest the products better. Our stomach and gut can handle better the milk of sheep and goats than cows. For vegans, you can also make cheese from cashew nuts, did you know?
People are making their own beer and wine, and it is not difficult. We are so spoiled that we can buy everything, so we don’t even know how to make our own food anymore.
It is far easier to stay healthy when baking your bread, eating bread with vegetables instead of antibiotic and hormone-containing meat.
Real eggs come from healthy chickens that can eat worms and beetles and are beneficial for humans because they contain so much healthy protein. We don’t need supermarkets with their unhealthy stuff; believe me; the real product is not very expensive.
We pay so much for our food because the supermarkets and governments are earning money on our behalf. There is no difference to other former centuries; we pay the taxes!
Some food has become cheap but not healthy. I prefer healthy food! If we grew our own food, the world wouldn’t warm up so much, changing the climate. We need plants and trees to cool down the climate.
The farmers do not desire to damage the environment with their work and produce, but the system chose the wrong way, more animals, more antibiotics, more hormones, more pesticides, and herbicides. Organic produce will save the Earth and our lives! We need the farmers and their healthy work on the fields, and I desire that they have a good income that we pay for our nutritious food and their work.
How to Be Self-Sufficient in Energy and Water?
I have no idea about the water supply! Being independent of the energy supply of the government and the energy companies might not be difficult. There are already several people who have great ideas to create a solar system for only about $200, that is not even 200 Euros, and we would all have our own energy supply, for cooking, and heating, the fridge, and the freezer.
However, I have to admit that I don’t have an idea for the water supply. I try to collect rainwater for my plants, but I don’t know how to get water for drinking, cooking, and washing without our well-known water system. Here in the Netherlands, we have many rainy days, and it is stupid not to collect the water. We open the tap, and the water is coming through the pipes; how convenient, but what would be if this stops? What will we do without our drinking water from the tap? Well, we certainly need a water filter to receive healthy water. Some filters help to clean rainwater so that we can drink it. In survival shops, you find many items that help us to survive.
Maybe you have any idea how to collect and use the water. I mean, even the Romans already had a water system. We can be independent and have our own water supply. Let me know what you think, and if you have any idea about our water supply.
Regarding the coming threats and changes due to the globalists already promised, we should be independent and outside of their control, creating a self-sufficient living, not only for us but for all people.
Building communities that work together on their energy, water, and food supply and their financial system is the best way to stay away from these people who think they are the elite and God themselves, controlling and manipulating the world’s population.
Hitler already thought that he was the crown of the world, so we need to stop these, in my eyes, ill-minded people who think they are allowed to control the population. If we all hold together and create our own world without these evil thinking people in the world who are only interested in money, and control, and their games, we could create a world that combines old and modern principles, leading to a self-sufficient life where all people are happy and taken care off. Solidarity will help us to survive, a way that has always functioned all the past centuries. It is not good that people are isolated.
Here is another video to grow vegetables indoors.
Maybe it sounds too idealistic for you or idiotic, but I would love to hear your opinion on this topic. Perhaps you even didn’t know about these developments, and you are pretty surprised. However, I would love to hear your ideas and opinions, but also your feelings.
All the Best,
