**Note: Per Harvard Medical and many Doctors,
Canned soup, Canned vegetables, Canned ANYTHING, are TOXIC!
EVERYTHING CANNED CONTAINS TOXIC LEVELS OF BPA or *BPS!!
BPA is Bisphenol A, Poisonous, Toxic, Deadly.!
It is sprayed on the inside of cans, as a clear plastic liner.
BPA causes IBS, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Erectile Dysfunction,
Fibromyalgia, Heart Conditions, Memory Loss, CANCER and finally DEATH!
Other medical conditions are being found, due to BPA! Youtube videos
tell the facts on this Bombshell! Avoid Anything that is canned!!!
Throw out plastic bottles or containers. Buy Pyrex GLASS containers.
Kudos to Canada for being the First Country to BAN any water bottles
OR baby bottles that contain BPA. ALL metal canning is done in the
U.S.A. for them, Canada, and many other Countries.
Boycott ALL metal canned products! Plastic too!
BUY ONLY GLASS CONTAINERS OF FOOD, BEVERAGES!!!

**Update: BPS is replacing BPA, but is still TOXIC! see page
https://salvationcanada.wordpress.com/bpa/
This really shows how stupid we are, yet we profess to be
so much smarter that any previous generation. Doh! NOT!

SAY “NO” to “GMO”! SAY “NO” to “GMO”!! SAY “NO” to “GMO”!!!
Seeds are being bought out by Ugly Thieving Corporations to kill
the good seeds and introduce their own seeds. Monsanto is such.
Monsanto is Poisoning the Word with GMO seeds! Monsanto sues farmers!
Monsanto is the DEVIL! Seriously!! Research it! Buy GMO free, only!

We Love Flowers, Fountains, and…..Tomatoes!
100_3347
Tomato Seeds Grow up Fast when properly started!
100_3344
Transplant carefully to a larger container. “4 leaves” is the rule.
Tomatoes have a long, spreading, root system. Be gentle transplanting.
100_3343
Move Tomato Plants outside into warm sunny day, back inside overnight.
10 C or 50 F is the lowest temperature Tomatoes like. Above low of 16 C is best.
100_3341
Tomato Plants almost ready to transplant into well prepared, tested soil!
One Third black soil, One Third Peat Moss, One Third Manure. (mushroom)
Best prepared the previous season and “turned” or roto-tilled a few times.
Good drainage is necessary, as is Good regular watering with pure water.
PURE WATER! The plastic hose and lead soldered connections are TOXIC.
YES, if you have lead in the water, you have LEAD in your VEGETABLES!!
VERY IMPORTANT. DO YOU UNDERSTAND?! No Lead, No BPA, No BPS!
No Toxins, Plastics, Vinyl, etc. Use a charcoal filter and rubber hose.
Better still, use wooden rain-barrels to collect water. Then distribute.
Think First, people. THINK!

Lead-in-Soil
*Warning: All “city soil”, and soil within about 3 miles (5Km) of Highway,
is contaminated with LEAD, and is Toxic, Unsafe! Buy NEW SOIL!!
Go to a farm out of town, or known source. Do NOT believe salespeople!
Get a sample and have it analyzed. “Bags” are a Bad idea. Not for Vegetables!
Paint chips are a Major Source of Lead Contamination!
paint-chip
Paint from homes was full of Lead. Chips and flakes contaminate your yard.
Cars used LEAD fuel. The Lead spread in the air, onto soil, about 3 miles.
YES, plants pull up lead. Especially green leafy vegetables. Do NOT eat!!!
LEAD is Horrible, Very Toxic, stays in the body, causes Brain Retardation!!
See more in “Vitamin” Side Menu. Do NOT believe LIES on websites saying “it’s ok”.
It is NOT OK! This is such a VERY important First Step to growing Vegetables!!
Get Serious about your SOIL!

Remember Adam and Even in the Book of Genesis, King James Version BIBLE.
What did God tell Adam to do in the Garden of Eden?
Genesis 2:15 (King James Version Only)
“And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden
to dress it and to keep it.”
“Dress it”, means to cultivate it. Not do little or nothing and be lazy. Get knowledge, use it.
“Keep it”, means to Protect it. You have enemies. Bacteria, mold, fungus, insects, birds,
other plants, weeds, spores, UV light, acid rain, wind, animals, people, lack of knowledge.
As well as the Devil.
Adam-and-Eve
Adam failed to Protect the garden, or Eve, and we all know what happened.
(Read Genesis, amazing!)
Don’t make the same mistake! Protect your Garden. Protect your Loved ones.

Thank you and God Bless You!

1. There is much to say! This section will be worked on over time to bring you the most current and up to date methods of successful cultivation for a variety of climates.
To begin, purchase non-GMO, non-Hybrib seeds of all kinds of vegetables/fruits suitable for your situation and future. Store them in a strong waterproof, floatable carry-case, in a cool dark place or in the chest freezer. Have this ready to go at a moments notice. Also have some “miracle grow” fertilizer packed, and some “growing” books.
A good start.
Read and learn and try growing “seedling” Plain dirt won’t work.
The right “mix” of soil, fertilizer, peat, is needed.
Then the right watering, humidity, temperature, lighting is required.
You cannot go from seeds indoors to plant outdoors and expect even 50% live.
Tomatoes for example, need bottom heat at minimum 20 degrees C, 70 F.

Also, must be covered to keep high humidity. This is for about 4 weeks,
depending on variety. Then, move outdoors when the temperature is the same
or higher, and sunny not stormy. The “wind” is needed to strengthen the
stalk. Indoors, use a fan on a timer. Suggest 15 min every 3 hours.
Complicated, but simple when you get going with this.
Next comes transplanting carefully as the seedling outgrows it’s container.
Soil MUST be ready, properly fertilized, PH, etc. read on for more….
Tomatoes must be transplanted 4″ lower, and leaf shoots clipped.
Reason: The stalk becomes “root” for those 4″, and the leaves
if left will become diseased and kill the plant. Ouch!
NPK1
10-0-0 Fertilize a couple of weeks later, when plant is established.
0-10-10 a month after that.
NPK2
nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (N-P-K). More is not better.
Depending on the plant, and your location, TIMING is critical.
The “cycle” must be worked out from seed sowing to harvesting.
Do not transplant outdoors in one fell swoop!
Move the plants outside, sheltered, during the warm day, and back at night.
After a couple of weeks of this, weather depending, Full Transplant happens.
2. Sowing the seedling has prerequisites.
The ground must be plowed or hoed, to allow water and oxygen for the plant.
The ground must be tested for ph, nutrients, contaminants, mixture.
Proper spacing is essential.
Only then may you have a chance of a successful harvest.
3. Companion Planting.
Some plants like being beside certain other plants.
Some plants hate being beside certain other plants.
Read up! Plant accordingly
Some plants need much more water, and some less water
Or, water at certain times, but not other times.
Also, certain flowers, like marigolds, attract bees which pollinate crops.
Oh, take out the “suckers” from your tomato plants, put them in a jar of water for about 2-3 weeks. Roots will form.
Eureka! You now have more tomato plants!!
Lots to Learn!
4. Blight, bacteria, infections, mold, pests, fungus, predators, and other enemies of your crops, have to be contended with.
As your crops are “organic”, meaning NO pesticides, NO herbicides, and NO Fungicides. None of these are allowed. Get a good book on organic farming. There are many “home recipes” to help your crops.
Simple soap and water does wonders. Read Up!
“Learn, Grow, Change!”
5.Now comes the hard part. Harvest Time!
Know when to harvest. Some crops are fast, some take all summer.
Be precise. Check plants daily. When you do harvest, preserve. See
https://salvationcanada.wordpress.com/canning/
Herbs need specific heat/humidity so read up!
Potatoes need a sandbox in your cold cellar. Carrots/Onions too.
Garlic is only good in year 2 and 3 and needs a specific container.
6. Preserving.
You CAN teach an old dog new tricks – contrary to the myth.

7. Fencing! Protect your hard work!! More and more animals and birds are attacking gardens and eating or destroying gardens and crops. Fence and bird mesh are now needed for growing areas.

8. How much per person? First, account for crop loss. ie 50%
a. Potatoes 500lbs per person (-crop loss = 250)
b. Carrots 200lbs per person
c. Tomatoes 200lbs per person
d. Peas 100lbs
e. Beans 100lbs
ect. ect.
This is a rough guide, and varies on factors.
Remember that in winter, soup and stews will be full of vegetables!
Remember that this is where you will get almost ALL of your nutrients!

9. You CANNOT get all or enough nutrients from even all these vegetables.
ie Iodine, selenium, zinc…See fuller info in VITAMIN page.

Other: Aloe Vera Plant – Medicinal Topical, for burns and skin.

Flowers: Make it Fun Too! Plant bright smelly flowers to attract bees!
Marigolds are great for this, and low maintenance, all-season.
Choose shorter plants so wind and weather don’t affect.

A Garden is a lot of good, hard, time consuming work.
Make things as “low maintenance” as possible.

Learn when to Harvest, and how to STORE and Preserve.
Salvation Canada will help with this later.
We cannot emphasize enough how much YOU must grow your own food.
One Word: GMO.
It is proven to cause cancer in rats, in only 9 months.
We don’t eat nothing but GMO’s so it may take many years to manifest.
But, it is a guaranteed Cancer Killer.
Even Livestock which is fed GMO’s, show it in blood tests, and get cancer!
What do we do about this?
go-organic
Go Organic, everyone. Or suffer the horrible, painful cancer death!!!

I hope and Pray I can impress upon everyone, how Immediate, how necessary, and how Life Giving, this is.
Yes, it may mean moving, and a lower “standard of life”.
But, at least you will Have a Life!
Get it?
Back to Basics, everyone. Do it ASAP. Take books with you!

Send us Pictures of your Garden, at all stages, to share with everyone!
We will work on a “Tips” page too. Thanks for Tips!

tbc

After members watched literally hundreds of youtube videos
on Tomatoes, Ground Preparation, Seed starting, transplanting,
Growing, Pruning, Fertilizing, Harvesting, Disease, and more,
the combined watching, reading, college courses, farmers, ect,
have given input on “How To”.

It is AMAZING! So Complicated, yet so simple!
And like the eating of honey after a Bible battle,
ENLIGHTENMENT!!!!! WOW!!! Praise you Jesus!

Our Health depends on eating properly. So we do this,
and still our health suffers. Even a lifetime later.
What went wrong?
A tomato, or any vegetable, will grow and look fine but
usually contains very little of the potential nutrients,
vitamins, minerals.
WHY?
The soil, the ground, was NOT prepared properly!
It is far more effort than “You are what you Eat”.
What you eat depends entirely on How You Prepare Earth!

Each vegetable requires certain nutrients and micro-nutrients.
If these are not in the soil, then they will not be in
your vegetables. Duh. So simple, the truth.
We think that if we add “miracle grow”, everything is good.
It looks good, but NO, it is not good.
We think that if we add manure, everything is great.
It looks great, but NO, it is not great.
manure
Take Iodine, for example. Almost no Iodine is in any soil.
Yet our Thyroid is about 75% iodine. The Thyroid controls
most all of the bodies settings. It is life, and health.
So where do we get Iodine from?
Answer: No where. Read SALT under
https://salvationcanada.wordpress.com/vitamins/
Even that source is woefully inadequate.
Solution: Fertilize with Kelp, Seaweed. A GREAT Solution!

It may all seem complicated, but once your eyes are opened,
it all becomes very clear. VERY CLEAR! AND LIFE!!!

Back to Tomatoes. READ CAREFULLY AND SLOWLY!!

Tomatoes require a higher Ph of soil. More Acidic.
4.6 Ph is Neutral, 5.5 is higher acid, perfect for Tomatoes.
Therefor, preparation of the soil is Ultra Important.
You also cannot use dead soil, or soil in run down state.
TEST your SOIL! Test it for Ph, Lead, Toxins, Nutrients.
A low cost test. A Must.
(Lead from Lead gas and lead paint, is everywhere)
You may have to truck in loads of soil from good ground.
(See all the Bible comparisons? I hope so.)
Then, Obey and ADD the missing nutrients if lead/toxin free.
Mushroom Manure is best. Steer manure not, because seeds
from weeds pass through and POP!, a garden full of weeds. Ow.

Tomatoes also need peat moss (acidic), lime or other calcium,
Epsom Salts, – say what? Yep. Bath Salts. No kidding!
Epsom Salts are Magnesium Sulfate, and are used by farmers
to prevent “splitting” of tomatoes, and other fruit.
In combination and proper %, Peat, Lime, and MgSO4 protect
against splitting, and provide proper “uptake” of water and
nutrients. Very Important!

SEE? Complicated, yet very simple. Thank you Jesus!

Prepare the ground Wisely!

Fertilize and prepare ground in the fall. Rototill thoroughly
to a minimum depth of two (2) feet. Roots for tomatoes
go DEEP! And WIDE! They are sucking up all those great
nutrients! Few plants are as wise and nutritious as Tomatoes!

There is still so much to say. Whew! Feels like a University
Lecture! They should have a Degree just for Tomatoes! lol.

Two main types of tomatoes are:
tomato bush texas
Determinate is a Bush type that produces mostly at end of season (Canada)
Determinate is a “Determinated” size of plant and size of tomato produced.
Determinate are tomatoes that are bred to grow to about 4 feet in height.
They stop growing when fruit buds grow and produce all fruit within 2 weeks.
Then the plant dies.
*This tomato plant should NOT be pruned or have suckers removed. (Bad)
A 5 Gallon container suffices to grow this type of tomato.
Varieties are: Aurora, Bison, Celebrity, Milano Plum, Roma, ect.

Indeterminate is a Vine that keeps growing and producing… all year.
Or until it gets cold.
Indeterminate 55-60 day include: Early Cascade, Early Girl and Quick Pick.
Indeterminate 65-75 day include: VF, Fantastic, Better Boy, Big Girl.
Indeterminate 75-90 day include: Delicious, Beefsteak, Supersteak, Beefmaster.

TOMATO SEED PURCHASES AND INFORMATION

Days to Harvest:

Cherry Tomatoes yield the quickest harvest, about 30 days,
and can be planted in a pot or basket.
From there, the many choices depend on your zone
and taste. Beefsteak Tomatoes are great with sirloin steak
but take months of growing and careful watering/tending.
We suggest a wide range of harvest dates and varieties.
Tomatoes are surprisingly different in taste and texture
between varieties. You can easily have 100 types and 100 tastes.
So read up on these websites and order a bunch of types.
The difference in tastes will surprise you!

Herb used for peace and happiness at home. There are over 60 varieties: sweet basil like genovese or pistou, purple basil like Rubin basil, flavored basil like lime basil or Thai basil. It is used to sharpen the memory, combat colds, flu and the herpes, eliminate infections, remove phlegm from your bronchial tubes, relieve mucus in asthma, has antibacterial properties and it is an anti-stress agent. Tasting like anise, basil is a plant rich in carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, which protects cells from adverse effects of free radicals and prevents the oxidation of cholesterol on blood vessels. Thus, basil reduces the risk of atherosclerosis and heart attack. Because of the magnesium compounds, basil relaxes the muscles and the blood vessel and thus is recommended for maintaining the cardiovascular system healthy, improving blood circulation. Basil is effective for the whole immune system because it destroys bacteria that allows the development of viral infections, colds, flu and herpes.

How to use:

Tea:

10-12 leaves washed and crushed and a teaspoon of ginger rake fry in a skillet over low heat until the leaves soften. Add a cup of water and boil for a few minutes. Add a teaspoon of honey and drink 3 hot teas a day, through rare sips, after the main meals.

How to grow:

Growing Basil is relatively easy as long as the growing environment has suitable light and temperature levels. For optimal growth, basil should receive 6 or more hours of direct sunlight a day. Check your soil for moisture every other day to determine whether or not your basil needs some watering. If your soil is dry, water at the base of the plant until the soil is wet to a depth of about 1½ inches. You can start by planting yourself or buy it.

#2. ROSEMARY

Rosemary has long been believed to have memory-enhancing properties, it contains diterpene which has neuroprotective properties that may protect against Alzheimer’s disease as well as the normal memory loss that occurs with aging. Remarkably even the smell of rosemary has been found to improve memory. In addition, rosemary boosts concentration. It’s also used for muscular aches, hair growth, poor circulation, digestion, anti-dandruff and scalp nourishment, mood elevator, migraine relief, pain relief, immune booster, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, fresh breath, liver detoxification.

How to use:

Powder:

– The plant will be finely ground. Usually, a teaspoon of powder is taken 4 times a day on the empty stomach. Keep it under the tongue for 10-15 minutes, then swallow with water. The powder should not be stored for more than 7 days as its properties are altered.

How to grow:

Rosemary is easiest to grow from a cut leftover, rather than planting seeds. Visit a community garden and ask for a cutting, or ask a friend for a cutting of their plant. The best time to do this is in late spring, but if you live in a warmer climate, this can be done during early autumn as well. Strip the leaves off one inch from the bottom of the stem. Before planting the rosemary, strip the leaves off of the lower section of the cutting (about an inch from the end of the stem). This part of the plant will go into the soil. Water rosemary infrequently. Rosemary prefers a drier soil, so don’t overdo the watering. It will be happy with the average garden watering. It likes to source most of its water from rain. And don’t worry about fertilizing. This is not a herb that needs it.

#3. SAGE

Sage leaves should be collected shortly before or just at the beginning of flowering. Leaves can then be dried, but not above 95°F. Sage can be taken internally as either an infusion, tincture, or gargle. The leaves of Red Sage are often used to aid inflammation of the mouth, throat, and tonsils as its volatile oils are soothing to the mucous membranes. It can be used internally as a mouth wash to treat gingivitis, inflamed tongue (glossitis), and other mouth inflammations including mouth ulcers. It can also be gargled to treat laryngitis, pharyngitis, and tonsillitis. Furthermore, it reduces sweating when taking internally. Externally it is used to treat wounds. Do not take Sage if you are pregnant or wishing to breastfeed. When taken internally, it can reduce breast milk production and stimulate the muscles of the uterus.

How to use:

Infusion:

– pour a cup of boiling water onto 1-2 teaspoons of leaves and let infuse for 10 minutes. Drink this solution up to three times a day.

How to grow:

A lot of your success in growing sage is because of what you don’t do. Don’t over-water your sage plants. They only need to be watered at all during dry spells. And don’t over-fertilize them. Sage plants don’t really need much fertilizer. Over-fertilizing makes them grow faster but they have a weaker flavor, defeating the purpose of growing it.

#4. THYME

Thyme contains an essential oill that is rich with powerful antispetic, antibacterial and strong antioxidant properties. It is used in mouthwashes to treat inflamation of the mouth and throat infections. Thyme possesses expectorant and antispasmodic properties, making it useful in the treatment of bronchitis, whooping cough and inflamation of the upper respiratory tract.

How to use:

Infusion:

– put 2 teaspoons of dry and crushed herb in 250 ml boiling water and leave to cover for 10 minutes. Drink one cup a day, divided into 2-3 replicas, for one week.

How to grow:

Thyme can tolerate indirect light, which makes it perfect for the kitchen herb garden. The best results will be found when thyme is planted where it receives six hours of daylight. Once the thyme has been planted, place the container in a southern- or western-facing window if possible. A good mix of sand, potting soil, peat moss and perlite will provide adequate nutrients and drainage.

#5. OREGANO

OREGANO plant has a strong odor similar to thyme and sage. Has strong antiseptic properties and it is highly potent as an antibiotic as well. As such, it could be very effective in treating conditions caused by a microbial action, such as gastric problems, nausea and fever. It is also beneficial for digestive problems, respiratory and immune system.

How to use:

Tea:
– 4-6 leaves of fresh oregano, 2 and 1/2 cups of water, 1 spoon of natural honey. Boil water, chopp oregano and cook gently for 10 minutes. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy.

How to grow:

If you decide to start from seed, or establish some cuttings early, get them started indoors about 6-10 weeks before your last frost date. They can be transplanted anytime after the last frost. But you could purchase started plants at your local greenhouse. Oregano is quite simple to tend to. Give your plants about one inch of water per week, allowing the soil to dry out in between watering. Oregano doesn’t care for fertilizer, so you can skip this step.

#6. PARSLEY

Parsley is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids that play an important role in the proper functioning of the body. The calcium helps develop and maintain the bone system, amino acids inhibit the growth of tumors, and iodine regulates the thyroid function. Also, parsley is four times richer in vitamin C than an orange and has more iron than spinach. It is also a rich source of pro-vitamin A which helps protect vision and strengthens the immune system.

How to use:

Juice:
– is indicated if you are experiencing kidney stones. Two tablespoons on empty stomach will be consumed for 40 days, only at the doctor’s indication.

How to grow:

Seeds can be planted outdoors in March or April, and again in late summer for early growth the next spring. You may also start seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before the last frost.Prefers soil enriched with plenty of organic material, such as compost and well-rotted manure.

#7. CHIVES

Chives have a mild anti-inflammatory effect which can reduce the risk of rheumatoid arthritis. It is rich in vitamin C which helps support the immune system. Vitamin E also has antioxidant properties that strengthen the immune system. Also possess antibiotic properties. The natural antibacterial and antiviral agents present in chives work with vitamin C to destroy harmful microbes and certain yeast infections.

How to use:

Juice:
– can be applied to wounds to treat fungal infections.

How to grow:

It is best to start growing your chives from seedlings instead of seeds so that you can enjoy quicker results. When planting your chive seedlings, you want well drained and nutrient-rich soil. Chives will flourish quickly in a full sun spot, but if you only have partial sun they will survive, they just won’t grow as quickly. When planting your chive seedlings, you want them to be 8-10 inches apart so they have room to stretch.

#8. LAVENDER

Lavender not only has a great smell and color, but it also serves numerous medicinal and health purposes. In the composition of the plant, over 40 components have been identified which can not be obtained by synthesis in the laboratory. The composition of the plant contains oliphalic alcohol, acetic acid, tannin and bitter principles, which attribute lavender healing virtues to more than 70 diseases. Lavender has valuable therapeutic properties: anti-collagen, antiseptic, diuretic, relaxant and anxiolytic.

How to use:

Lavender Tea:
– infuse 0.8 g to 1.5 g of dried lavender flowers (one teaspoon of 2 teaspoons of flowers) into 150 ml of boiled water for 5 to 10 minutes. Drink up this tea up to 3 times a day, depending on affections, or before bedtime to combat insomnia.

How to grow:

If you are growing your lavender in pots, cover two inches of the bottom with Styrofoam peanuts or gravel. This will help make draining easier so the lavender does not become diseased or damaged. Plant one lavender per pot and keep it at the center. Water your lavender only when the soil is dry. As mentioned before, damp soil is very bad for lavender, so you don’t want to over-water it. However, under-watering can cause fungus and disease to grow.

#9. DILL

DILL is Rich in potassium, sodium and sulfur, dill is a very good diuretic. Improves anxiety and nerve exhaustion, insomnia, digestive disorders, strengthens nails. Has digestive, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory properties.

How to use:

Powder:
– dill powder is obtained by grinding the seeds and dried inflorescence by means of a grinder. You can take a teaspoon twice a day, but before it is swallowed, hold it for 10-15 minutes under your tongue. The treatment lasts for 21 days.

How to grow:

For planting dill, place the seeds in loose soil near the surface of the soil. You will want to plant them about a half an inch deep from the surface for the best results and rapid growth. Cover the seeds with the loose soil and lightly water and place in the sun. If you have higher winds you will want to cover the plants to avoid damage. In around two weeks you will notice your dill plants emerging. This is when you will want to thin out the plants so they can grow better.

#10. MINT

Mint is Known from antiquity, mint is an aromatic herb with many curative properties.
Mint has an effective pain reliever for headaches and migraines, use for indigestion, antiseptic and antibacterial properties to treat cuts and burns, alleviates arthritis pain, used as a decongestant with antiviral properties.

How to use:

Tea:
– mint tea after meals to have a pleasant breath and reduce the symptoms of indigestion and bloating.

How to grow:

Your mint plant can last for many years if cared for properly. Mint enjoys soil that is well drained and nutrient-rich. It can grow in full sun as well as in part sun.

Even if you don’t have outdoor gardening space, there are plenty herbs that you can grow indoors successfully on a sunny windowsill. So you can enjoy their fresh flavors and their spectacular health benefits all year long.

Caution: Mint can spread wildly. Mint is a weed and can grow 10 feet high. Many varieties.
There is 100X more to say on all this.
Bottom line, Grow and use Organic fresh herbs whenever possible.
Dried works too, with less potency.
