    Covid19: Home Prep, Deep Pantry & Gardening Megathread

The compilations of comments to Chris Martenson’s videos has been updated to include those from 1/23/2020 to 3/9/2020 and have been moved to this dedicated site:

Peak Prosperity Covid19 Library of Files

You can find all three of the megathreads as we are calling them, there on the first page.

In addition, we are beginning to go through those earlier compilations and collect them into subject specific mini-threads. You can see these by clicking on the Blog link at the top of the page.

In addition, you can receive these files as a download by sending me a PM (click the small link in the top right of this post). Please include your email.

Feel free to ask questions about these subjects either here on Peak Prosperity, or in the comments on the other site.

    Elder Plants Available from Crimson Sage Nursery

Hi everyone,
I just received an email from my favorite medicinal plant nursery, Crimson Sage, and they highlighted elder plants.  Tina is great.  I have purchased dozens of plants from her.  They ship only to the US except for AK and HI.

Vertical Squash Garden

There are SO MANY gardening threads, it’s hard to know where to go to post something.  Is there any way  to consolidate?  Anyway, here’s a picture I was sent – wouldn’t this be a sight?  Has anyone done this?  I’d have to have a fenced off place to do it, but what a great idea.  And I wonder if it would help against the perennial mold problem with squashes?

I take it to be rocky soil as well. Annual rainfall? Valley and or slope, facing which direction.

I cage mine as it has proven to help with wilts and the dreaded squash vine borer. I also mix them as it seems to confuse some pests. By mixing I will have a summer squash planted next to a melon or cucumber as the pests often prefer one variety.
