Indoor farming is now essential.
It is essential that people grow food indoors and that children learn how to grow to survive what is coming. Only then will they be equipped to deal with the possibility of radiation due to ecological disasters and earth shifts triggering nuclear reactors.

Here is a good starter video about growing food indoors.


And here is the situation on how bad it is.


Good luck.

Re: Indoor farming is now essential.
I agree with you about growing inside, but everyone I know looks at me as if I've grown a second head. Seems that most people simply do not believe that the situation is as dire as some of us do. In my way of thinking what harm does it do to be prudent?

Anyway, I've built a few small greenhouses and some hot boxes to help with space and growing (my house is of a modest size), and am trying to grow enough for my extended family.

Best wishes to you, Op

Re: Indoor farming is now essential.
My seeds arrive tomorrow :)

I ordered from sprout people here [link to sproutpeople.org]
and had to pay a lot for shipping.

My next order may be through Amazon to avoid shipping charges.

Re: Indoor farming is now essential.
"Indoor" as in your house requires electricity for the food plants to produce 'fruit'.

Lettuce and leafy greens do not require extend periods of direct sunlight. Vegetables that produce 'fruit' (tomatoes, peppers, corn, okra, cucumbers, squash, et al) require 8 hours of direct bright sunlight to produce enough energy from light to grow a decent 'fruit'.

Any vegetable that grows a food source from a flower (fruit) also requires a pollinator of some sort. Again, peppers, tomatoes, squash, etc.

Seed to propagate the next generation also requires a pollinator.

In the world of tomorrow that everyone thinks is coming, electricity will be at a premium, if it exists at all. You will not have the power to provide indoor plants the light they need to produce healthy, full fruit.

You also will not have the power to run trickle pump systems for hydroponics.

Unless you have a green house and a gravity fed watering system with open windows to allow pollinators into where the plants are, you most likely will not be growing your own food in the world of tomorrow.

You can't totally shut yourself off from the environment. It is impossible.

You will either have the genetic material to survive or adapt to the new radiological active environment, or you don't.

Perhaps we shouldnt be picky then and just go with the sprouts, salads etc. In the first video that guy says you can grow these foods in 5 days time.

The climate also plays a big role. The place where you live is important.
