Hi all,

I've recently opted against erecting a greenhouse in favor of setting up hoop gardens. I was inspired by this recent goofy video:  :)

Have had a wide range of experience with raised bed materials.  Railroad ties have lasted a decade or more without rotting, but are extremely heavy and difficult to position and are soaked with creosote.  Cedar planting boxes rot within 5 years in our location.  So, for smaller crops I ended up investing this year in 2X4 1-foot deep galvanized troughs from Tractor Supply for around $85 each.  They should last the remainder of my lifetime and beyond.  I had the flexibility of adding one at a time as my budget permitted, though in the end I got several and spent as much as a small greenhouse might have cost.  However, these fit much more easily into my landscape, don't block any view, are a comfortable height to work with, have many of the same advantages (once amended) as a greenhouse, and are difficult for small pests to scale up the sides with their claws.

Instead of the green hulahoops or other pvc tubing, I found strong steel hoops for a dollar each at a local Amish greenhouse and stocked up.  I did invest in some bales of potting soil and peat moss to begin with, and made a lightweight 50/50 blend, then worked my own compost into it, as I simply didn't have enough extra compost on hand during the winter to fill all the troughs, with most already being used in the berry and sunchoke patches.  One of my sons drilled holes about an inch up from the bottoms of the troughs on all sides, and then the tubs were pushed together in rows where appropriate in the landscape.  These could be painted to suit, which I probably won't do, but Martha Stewart's celadon green comes to mind for a nice patina effect. :)

I used the steel binder clips that I already had on hand to attach fine black netting to the tops of the hoops. Pollinators are managing to enter and exit beneath the netting, but I may want to open one side in the daytime, when many of my garden pests are less active.   We've not had any night time freezes lately, but I also have lightweight clear plastic sheeting on hand ready to add under the clips if needed.  I found these in the paint section of a local store.  Heavier clear vinyl is also available on table cloth bolts in fabric stores that would be handy in colder weather. 

I did cut up an old leaking professional grade rubber garden hose as one film suggested to make the fatter clips needed to clamp netting down, but found that this expands and contracts with the weather, so inexpensive spring clamps purchased in bulk worked better.  Will use these over the rubber hose clamps so as not to rip the netting.  Will experiment with straight pvc pipe to roll my cloths up from the ground at the sides, as well, as shown in the films.

Hardening off for Px flyby: Am planning to add galvanized hardware cloth in arches over the troughs in the near future.  This may protect the planters from small debris, but will not protect from larger debris much more than wide open gardens would be protected.  The roll-down netting and drop cloths may, however, help to protect these more delicate small to medium sized crops (strawberries, garlic, chives, Lincolnshire spinach aka Good King Henry, skirret, butterbur [antihistimine plant], miner's lettuce, chickweed, and non-bitter dandelions) from Px tail dust and possibly from the flyby bacteria that Marshall warned about.

More similar films:

Will take photos as soon as this long rainy spell goes away.

What are you trying?

Why is it that some refer to the cycle as being 13,000 years, while others say it's 3600?
Learning from Ancient Cataclysms / Re: Cappadocia & pyramids
« Last post by Socrates on Today at 03:37:51 AM »
Who knows who might have survived earlier passages of PX [in Cappadocia], in pre-Christian times...

Then there is a theory some of the pyramids were build as shelters.
Humankind survived...
According to David Wilcock there are 3300 structures like the pyramids all over the world. Obviously [sic], mankind survived. However, we were all in a 'stone age' 10,000 years ago; this we know. Hey, maybe they built the darn things and then only idiots made it inside in time... God knows the handful of folks @ Planet X Town Hall is a pitiful number in relation to the 7 billion on Earth today.

I've read about Cappadocia and though it might go even thousands of years beyond 5 thousand, it's quite a stretch to think 12 rather than 5...
Fact is that research and history show that the Earth is regularly buffeted by cosmic effects, only they're usually not on the scale of stone age events.
I don't know about the geology @ Cappadocia and have no way of knowing if the caves [and their entrances/exits!] will hold up against megaquakes.
But simple common sense has me wondering: if a whole city of folks managed to survive 13,000 years ago, then why did they get thrown back into our Stone Age?

Just an “Exercise” or something more… ??

Over 13,000 deaths, 130,000 injuries, projected if this week’s Operation Gotham Shield’s 10 kiloton nuclear detonation goes live from Lincoln Tunnel

Will the exercise go off without a hitch?

According to recently leaked U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) documents, a simulated nuclear attack exercise dubbed Operation Gotham Shield starts Monday, April 24, and will be running through Wednesday, April 26.

The exercise encompasses nine state and federal agencies that seek to “evaluate the ability of RAP 1 to coordinate with New York City, New Jersey, and New York State emergency response organizations” to better prepare and safeguard against domestic nuclear threats.

Voice of Reason reports: “[Operation Gotham Shield is] a major nuclear detonation drill in the New York-New Jersey area, along with the U.S.-Canadian border. During this exercise, 4 nuclear devices, 2 of which are rendered “safe” during the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Vital Archer Exercise, and one successful 10kt detonation in the NYC/NJ area, along with one smaller detonation on the U.S./Canadian border are to take place.”

To get a better feel for what we are actually talking about here, if a 10 kiloton nuclear device were to be detonated in Manhattan’s Lincoln Tunnel, for instance, the estimated death toll from the immediate blast would be 13,400 people and over 72,000 more would be injured.

According to a 10 kiloton simulation of a ground-based nuclear explosion using NUKEMAP, we can clearly see just how devastating such a blast would be and how a projected 6 mph wind would carry the fallout.

Interestingly enough, the 10 kiloton devices selected to be used in the exercise mimic the near size of a portable “suitcase nuke.”

My name is "Socrates" because i always admired how the ancient Socrates worked from the simple premise that he knew 'nothing'. One might say: we know what we know (and it's smart to acknowledge and accept that that's just about all you know, so don't act like you know more than you actually do); and speculation, imagination and assumptions are not knowing...

Based on all kinds of research in all kinds of scientific fields, there's this 13,000-year cycle. Now, perhaps we'll never know what is the ultimate cause of this returning destruction, but in the end it's a moot point; just knowing massive destruction is on it's way puts you way ahead of 7,000,000,000 souls not preparing for any such event.
Common sense will help you out, i figure. I mean, again, whatever's coming was enough to clear the Earth of mankind's presence 13,000 years ago and all you have to do is contemplate if your preparations would've helped make you through that event.
Like: Did they have bunkers 13,000 years ago? Well, why the hell not?!
So now you know that a bunker ain't gonna cut it.
And so you keep on digging until you figure you've covered all the bases, i.e. possible megagales, megaquakes, galactic superwave effects, ice age, etc. etc. etc.
It's a process; you don't get there overnight, but i believe we can all get there if we stick with it.

Socrates, we know they did have ancient underground networks of caves such as Cappadocia
Who knows who might have survived earlier passages of PX there, in pre-Christian times...

Cappadocia in which early Christians built wonderful arches, which apparently still stand. (Documentary I saw.) . A City was built on top.

The caves are described as 5,000 years old but I feel people were there taking shelter for many of thousands of years before that....

I had better images, will have to find...
Then there is a theory some of the pyramids were build as shelters. Will find that info. An empty pyramid, with smooth polished floors and what looked like ventilation shafts.

Humankind survived...
SURVIVING the CHANGES / Re: Earth's position in space
« Last post by Socrates on April 23, 2017, 11:02:13 PM »
indeed: "environment"; solar system [Sol]? Galaxy? Universe?
Astronomy never did add up and independent [!] research by folks like Paul LaViolette has a lot of people reexamining the environment we're all up against.
Some folks suggest we're entering a part of the galaxy that will effect Earth negatively, others point to regular galactic superwaves and yet others speak of crossing the galactic plane (that would supposedly cause our solar system to change polarity...).

And in space, i.e in a vacuum environment, how much does distance really matter? I mean, we think of the galactic center as far away but in relation to light years and vacuum, is it all really that far away?
And if you're going there... what about other galaxies and how they impact our own?

The environment of space is really something we're all really just coming to define; by no means is it a given.

October 13, 2017 Executive order by President Obama (Link to this is on today's NOAA page, SPACE WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate ReleaseOctober 13, 2016
Executive Order -- Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events

- - - - - - -

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and to prepare the Nation for space weather events, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Space weather events, in the form of solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances, occur regularly, some with measurable effects on critical infrastructure systems and technologies, such as the Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite operations and communication, aviation, and the electrical power grid. Extreme space weather events -- those that could significantly degrade critical infrastructure -- could disable large portions of the electrical power grid, resulting in cascading failures that would affect key services such as water supply, healthcare, and transportation. Space weather has the potential to simultaneously affect and disrupt health and safety across entire continents. Successfully preparing for space weather events is an all-of-nation endeavor that requires partnerships across governments, emergency managers, academia, the media, the insurance industry, non-profits, and the private sector.

It is the policy of the United States to prepare for space weather events to minimize the extent of economic loss and human hardship. The Federal Government must have (1) the capability to predict and detect a space weather event, (2) the plans and programs necessary to alert the public and private sectors to enable mitigating actions for an impending space weather event, (3) the protection and mitigation plans, protocols, and standards required to reduce risks to critical infrastructure prior to and during a credible threat, and (4) the ability to respond to and recover from the effects of space weather. Executive departments and agencies (agencies) must coordinate their efforts to prepare for the effects of space weather events.

Sec. 2. Objectives. This order defines agency roles and responsibilities and directs agencies to take specific actions to prepare the Nation for the hazardous effects of space weather. These activities are to be implemented in conjunction with those identified in the 2015 National Space Weather Action Plan (Action Plan) and any subsequent updates. Implementing this order and the Action Plan will require the Federal Government to work across agencies and to develop, as appropriate, enhanced and innovative partnerships with State, tribal, and local governments; academia; non-profits; the private sector; and international partners. These efforts will enhance national preparedness and speed the creation of a space-weather-ready Nation.

Sec. 3. Coordination. (a) The Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), in consultation with the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), shall coordinate the development and implementation of Federal Government activities to prepare the Nation for space weather events, including the activities established in section 5 of this order and the recommendations of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), established by Executive Order 12881 of November 23, 1993 (Establishment of the National Science and Technology Council).

(b) To ensure accountability for and coordination of research, development, and implementation of activities identified in this order and in the Action Plan, the NSTC shall establish a Space Weather Operations, Research, and Mitigation Subcommittee (Subcommittee).

The heads of each sector-specific agency shall provide a summary of these assessments to the Subcommittee.

(c) Within 90 days of receipt of the assessments ordered in section 5(b) of this order, the Subcommittee shall provide a report on the findings of these assessments with recommendations to the Director of OSTP, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, and the Director of OMB. The assessments may be used to inform the development and implementation of policy establishing authorities and responsibilities for agencies in response to a space weather event.

(d) Within 60 days of the date of this order, the Secretaries of Defense and Commerce, the Administrator of NASA, and the Director of NSF, in collaboration with other agencies as appropriate, shall identify mechanisms for advancing space weather observations, models, and predictions, and for sustaining and transitioning appropriate capabilities from research to operations and operations to research, collaborating with industry and academia to the extent possible.

(e) Within 120 days of the date of this order, the Secretaries of Defense and Commerce shall make historical data from the GPS constellation and other U.S. Government satellites publicly available, in accordance with Executive Order 13642 of May 9, 2013 (Making Open and Machine Readable the New Default for Government Information), to enhance model validation and improvements in space weather forecasting and situational awareness.

(f) Within 120 days of the date of this order, the Secretary of Homeland Security, through the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and in coordination with relevant agencies, shall lead the development of a coordinated Federal operating concept and associated checklist to coordinate Federal assets and activities to respond to notification of, and protect against, impending space weather events. Within 180 days of the publication of the operating concept and checklist, agencies shall develop operational plans documenting their procedures and responsibilities to prepare for, protect against, and mitigate the effects of impending space weather events, in support of the Federal operating concept and compatible with the National Preparedness System described in PPD-8.

Sec. 6. Stakeholder Engagement. The agencies identified in this order shall seek public-private and international collaborations to enhance observation networks, conduct research, develop prediction models and mitigation approaches, enhance community resilience and preparedness, and supply the services necessary to protect life and property and promote economic prosperity, as consistent with law.

Sec. 7. Definitions. As used in this order:

(a) "Prepare" and "preparedness" have the same meaning they have in PPD-8. They refer to the actions taken to plan, organize, equip, train, and exercise to build and sustain the capabilities necessary to prevent, protect against, mitigate the effects of, respond to, and recover from those threats that pose the greatest risk to the security of the Nation. This includes the prediction and notification of space weather events.

(b) "Space weather" means variations in the space environment between the Sun and Earth (and throughout the solar system) that can affect technologies in space and on Earth. The primary types of space weather events are solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances.

(c) "Solar flare" means a brief eruption of intense energy on or near the Sun's surface that is typically associated with sunspots.

(d) "Solar energetic particles" means ions and electrons ejected from the Sun that are typically associated with solar eruptions.

(e) "Geomagnetic disturbance" means a temporary disturbance of Earth's magnetic field resulting from solar activity.

(f) "Critical infrastructure" has the meaning provided in section 1016(e) of the USA Patriot Act of 2001 (42 U.S.C. 5195c(e)), namely systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States that the incapacity or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.

(g) "Sector-Specific Agency" means the agencies designated under PPD-21 of February 12, 2013 (Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience), or any successor directive, to be responsible for providing institutional knowledge and specialized expertise as well as leading, facilitating, or supporting the security and resilience programs and associated activities of its designated critical infrastructure sector in the all-hazards environment. Sec. 8. General Provisions.

(a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an agency, or the head thereof; or (ii) the functions of the Director of OMB relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
