It’s Swarm season for us bee keepers. I’d better get on and sort out some old Nuc boxes (Nucs are mini hives we used to make other colonies) that I built a year ago. After a season using them I realised I’d made a few mistakes I need to put right. Lets get them fixed and deployed out in various different locations around town and see what I can attract..

I’ve decided I need a way to mount a camera above my worktable, so I’ve made a rig based on the idea of a counter balanced boom arm. Its made out of some PVC pipe I had laying around and it should be a good mounting point for a work light. My current lighting casts to much shadow for my tired old eyes…!!

In this video I show how easy it easy it is to make some charcloth. I use this to start my fire as a way to keep my skills sharp. We should never rest on out laurels ass it where and keep practising that which wee know.
To quote James Belushi in one of my favourite straight to DVD roles…..
“Wash the rice”..

In this video I go through how I built my wormeries. Using worms to convert organic matter into nutrient rich by products is a good way to close the nutrient cycle in any sized growing system. They way I've done it here allows me to tap off the liquid to use as a fertiliser and harvest the dried castings to use as a soil amendment.

A quick video from last summer as I harvest some chilli's and give a quick tour of the green house. Over time I can select both chilli's and tomato's for traits that work in my soil type and climate.

A quick video from last autumn showing how I harvest the end of season garlic, sort through it and store it ready for spring planting. Over time I can select fro traits that work in my soil type and climate. I’m also looking for those bulbs that store really well and taste great, saving a few cloves from the best of the bunch.

There is a new new counter culture growing, founded on the principles of personal responsibility, independence and self reliance.
If those are the pillars of a parallel populous and economy then we need to live it. This channel will chart my journey as I re-learn old skills, learn new ones and slowly build a life based on those principles. So here a shout out to Academic Agent, as i build my little bit of Trumpton.
We have to build on the ground upon which we stand or lose everything that has been built, we cannot afford excuses about not having everything handed to us, we have to start where we are with what we have.
You can do this too, I hope this channel inspires you to try.

If society has moved to the left then the dissident right has become the new counter culture. This new counter culture is founded on the principles of personal responsibility, independence and self reliance.

We have to build on the ground upon which we stand or lose everything our ancestors built, we cannot afford excuses about not having everything handed to us, we have to start where we are with what we have.
