Laundry To Landscape Grey-water Hack - SHTF Preparedness

Deer-proof Apple Trees: I did this last spring in my deer infested field and haven't had a problem since. Fencing is laid in two sections around a fruit tree. The tree can be watered, fertilized, sprayed and harvested with the wire in place. It really works!

"Cut plastic containers in half. Put some soil in. Label the name of the seed. Water the soil. Sow the seed. Tape the container closed. Move the entire container OUTSIDE to the north side of the house where it's protected from wind.  And that's it.  Now as the season warms, Nature will cause them to germinate at the right time when the temperatures are best suited for the seeds."

Cucamelons - Tiny little melon-alikes known in Mexico as Little Mouse Watermelons/Sanditas de Raton. Grown for centuries in Central America this fruit is new to Britain. The taste is described as cucumbery with a hint of lime and are, apparently, much easier to grow than normal cukes. Resistant to most pests, drought tolerant, it just needs a sunny, sheltered position to grow in.

Growing peppers. Peppers hate nitrogen/commercial fertilizer. Wait until plants flower before fertilizing. Then spray leaves with 1 tsp of Epsom salt to 1qt of water (peppers need Magnesium to set fruit). Peppers also enjoy small amounts of potassium (wood ashes).
