    So, vK, is this chart telling us that only parts of the world have Grand Solar Minima?

    Where did I read that recently?

    No, this chart attempts to give detailed information only for Europa. This doesn't mean that the rest of the world wasn't affected. That's why I put a "test post" below the image.

    The reason I posted this chart [selected at random, just as an example] was to see the different versions of it at the original TB2000 forum, the new TB2000 forum, and at my forum.

    The new TB2000 forum does a better job of rendering images, but not quite as good as my forum. Since I include many images, photos, and charts at my forum this feature is important to me.

    That’s one of the three cycles included in the Milankovitch cycles—the axial tilt of the earth, eccentricity (the elliptic shape-change), and the precession of our orbit around the sun.

    Breaking – Official US Govt Data shows accelerating temperature decline since 2016
    December 6, 2019 by Robert


    This shocking news (but not-so-shocking to me) comes from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

    This graph from NOAA pretty much tells the story. Temperatures have not only declined, the rate of decline appears to be accelerating.

    The link below contains the interactive version of this graph.

    Found the below article off Ice Age Farmer's twitter feed (thanks, Martinhouse!):

    https://agroinsurance.com/en/uk-carr...le-production/

    UK - Carrot shortage as floods and cold weather cripple production

    More than half of the UK’s carrot-growing areas have been affected by the recent flooding, which continues to prevent producers from being able to put straw down to protect the crop from frost damage.

    As the weather turns colder, the British Carrot Growers Association (BCGA) is warning that more wet weather and frost could “wipe out large amounts of the UK’s carrot harvest”.

    Commercial carrot growers across the North of England and the Midlands including Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, Shropshire and Lancashire, have all been affected.

    BCGA spokeswoman Coral Russell said: “The flooding has caught a lot of growers out. It has stopped them spreading straw as they usually do at this time of year.

    “More than 50% of the carrot-growing area in the UK has been affected. The only exception being those grown in East Anglia and Scotland.

    “If we have a frost now or more wet weather then all the carrots that are not covered with straw will get damaged and be unsuited for the market. They’ll be rotten.”

    Nottinghamshire carrot grower Mark Strawson added: “Since mid-September unprecedented levels of rainfall have made field operation extremely difficult with very few entirely dry days recorded over an eight-week period.

    “This protracted wet period has not allowed growers to cover crops with straw which is vital to protect them from frost over the winter."

    With such a small area protected to date and field conditions remaining poor there is a very high risk of crop loss should the weather now turn cold. Such a situation would severely disrupt supplies to retail customers.”

    Carrots are one of the nation’s favourite vegetable, with 75% of Britons saying they regularly eat carrots and more than 10 billion carrots eaten every year. British-grown carrots are available all-year-round, with 93% of the ones consumed in the UK currently grown here.

    Seeker, Martinhouse and I also noted the changes in the sun's position relative to our respective homes I think last year or the year before. We got a bit of kick back from some, but I believe it's becoming more apparent now to others, also.

    Always listen to the Elders. They Know. - Yep, I agree!

    All, if you haven't listened to the Deep South Homestead podcast above in #7012, I strongly recommend doing so.

    This is the best podcast I think he's ever done. And the most disturbing, IMHO.

    I'm literally working up my seed potato order as I'm listening, and I keep making it larger. Seed order is next.

    Please don't wait too long to get your seed orders in if you plan on planting a garden.

  14. #7014
    TxGal, thanks for all the links. Now my morning is gone and it looks like it might be warm enough outside for me to do a few things.

    Haven't heard from my helper guy. If he doesn't show up today, I'll start trying to chip away at the chores myself. My sister said she'd help me as she could find time. She has offered to move all the leaves into the chicken pen and I think this would be a good opportunity for me to go up the ladder while someone is here, to get the roof chores done. We will be discussing it all in an hour or two if the guy doesn't show up by one PM.
    -------
    Edit:
    I can't order seeds until I get some catalogs. I pretty much have what I need, except for the fact that I gave away the packs I'd gotten last year for mangel beets. I gave them to the lady who said they'd definitely be back after peach season to finish mixing and putting the new soil in my outdoor containers. I'm not ready to totally condemn her and her family yet, as I have to tell myself something awful could have happened to them, like she or her husband maybe died or became ill or injured in some serious way, or even suffered the lose of a child or grandchild. That could change anyone's plans and promises in a big way.

    Maybe I'll find out what happened some day. If anything did happen. If nothing happened, I'm out two precious books and a huge (for me) amount of money's worth of above-ground gardening supplies, plus chickens, rabbits and lots of food for them.

    I guess my reward for trusting others so whole heartedly has to be knowing that I would never do such a thing to someone else. I would rather trust too much and get stung, than let down someone who trusted me too much.

    You're welcome. Darn, I wonder what's going on with him....he was so dedicated for a while, I hope it's nothing serious and that he does plan on coming back.

    Maybe your sister can go up the ladder instead? It will be great to have all those leaves where they do the most good :-)

    You are correct. The problem lies in the climate change religionists telling the gullible that there is no change when there clearly is. It is another Great Cycle and something those playing gawd cannot change. So they try to change people's minds instead. And if they cannot, they will resort to force to get it done.

    I just listened to the Deep South Homestead podcast about 2020 and then a shorter one about their greenhouse.

    Lots of interesting things on both Deep South Homestead podcasts. One problem I noticed on the first one is that he used the word morality not only for it's actual definition, but also used it when he meant morale. I think this could confuse some listeners.

    I do recommend that everyone listen to both of these podcasts. The second one is under ten minutes. In it he mentions the sun being in a different location now, and also the pollen buildup on his greenhouse panels, which I may have mentioned here on the GSM thread recently. Their greenhouse tomatoes are really gorgeous and I hope they are prepared to treat for whitefly in a big hurry if they should suddenly become infested with them.

    TxGal, my sister cannot go up on the roof. She is incapable of climbing a ladder past maybe her own height or of being on her roof. While I do get a little dizzy at the edge of a roof, I don't have the height problem she does and am fine up there. My problem is being so week in the legs or them suddenly getting shaky or just losing their strength while I'm halfway up the ladder. I always put the ladder in a corner so I can step on and off of it to one side, and I even tie the ladder somewhat so it can't fall over, if there is something to tie it to.

    Sis told me that her last time up, many years ago, she was on her roof doing something and she was afraid to get back on the ladder to get down. She sat up there for hours, hoping someone would come by to help, but no one ever did and when it started getting dark out she was forced to do it herself and she's never gone up a ladder again.

    So sorry to hear that. Nothing is ever simple, it seems. I don't much care for ladders, either...it would be nice if the ground was perfectly flat and ladders didn't shake.

    I just placed both my potato and veg seed orders. I'm still buying seed potatoes from our feed store when they're in later. And I know I'll buy more vegetable seeds when they're in the stores, too.

    I literally have floor to ceiling canning jars in various sizes in our spare room. I think I'll be picking up fresh lids, though, just to be safe. We have Tattlers, too, but haven't used them. If my garden cooperates, this year I'm canning beets, carrots, green beans, turnips, rutabaga, potatoes, and turnips. Freezers are full of beef, and we have a fair amount of chicken and turkeys (bought just the breasts at Thanksgiving). We always keep a load of canning jars on hand in case we have a freezer failure (and we have a propane camping stove, just in case).

    We'll have to see how the winter plays out. My gut feeling is telling me that we're moving faster and deeper into the GSM. I pray that I am wrong.

  20. #7020
    TxGal, what kind of canning lids do you buy? We here do not buy Kerr and Ball any more as they have that short lifespan now. We get Golden Harvest brand and hope that they don't have the same short time that the seals are supposed to last.

    I have wondered if there really was no change in the composition of the seal but that the company just decided to put a disclaimer on the boxes to protect themselves from litigation?

    Sister is on her way down to help me with leaves and getting up onto the roof. Sure will be nice to have all those piles of leaves stowed where they belong!

    Well that's interesting, in kind of a worrisome way. I've used both Ball and Kerr and haven't had a problem (yet). I can remember stories about Golden Harvest jars exploding in the pressure canner some years back.

    Let us know how it goes outside today!

  22. #7022
    Sister just left. She watched me up the ladder and I swept off the back of the roof and cleaned all the crap out of the gutters. While I did that, she bagged up the leaves that were already in piles. Then she hauled the bags back near the chicken pen and and we covered them with a big blue/silver tarp. While on the roof I found a corner of the cover up there that was splitting and did some mending with Gorilla tape. Don't know how well that will stay, but I didn't have time or inclination to patch and tar anything today.

    We will need another row of concrete blocks where I divided the chicken pen inside to keep the feeding area clean, then this new batch of leaves can be added to what the chickens already have in there. There are fifteen leaf bags, some very full and some not.

    I wanted to pay her what I would have paid the helper, but she absolutely refused. If he comes tomorrow he can add blocks to the divider wall and empty all those leave bags. If he does not, I may do it myself a little at a time. And I may end up plugging the rest of the holes in the top of the pen...there really aren't too many holes left, but I'd like the job to be finished up.

    My sidewalks are all cleaned up now and it looks so much nicer out there!

    It was warm enough outside when I was on the roof in the sun...I love being up there... but it got mighty chilly when I was back down and sitting in the shade of the house.

    I've never had any problem with Golden Harvest jars except that I can only fit five of them in the canner that's made for seven regular pint jars. And the glass they are made of is still thicker than the other brands. The newer Ball and Kerr jars are like eggshells by comparison.

    Time for me to eat something substantial. All I want is a big bowl of instant potatoes, so I suppose I'll need to force myself to do better than that.

    Oops! Just remembered that I need to bait the live trap by the chicken pen door. I switched traps and set it and just have to toss an egg to the back end of it.

    Wow, you did great!

    I'll just be watching all my lids and jars more than ever. I'd hate to think of losing anything after all the prep that goes into the process.

    Funny, I'm having instant potatoes with leftover turkey gravy and a bit of biscuit. I did have half an avocado earlier. Have a quiche in the oven now.

    Oh, almost forgot! Right after I placed my Baker Creek order, the catalog came in the mail. Pinetree Gardens should be around soon to our place and yours :-)

    I don't collect my mail very often, so if you would, could you let me know when you get your Pinetree catalog?

    Most definitely!!

  26. #7026
    Thanks. Hope they get delivered soon!

    Had a big bowl of mashed potatoes with salt and loads of butter. Now I'm sleepy, but I'm not tired.

    I think there's been a raccoon around. There were signs (I think) in the area they built the nest last year after they killed all the chickens, and a bunch of things have been knocked down in the front porch again and I don't think the cat did it. I'll need help to get it picked back up so it might have to stay as it is for a while.

    Seems like a raccoon would have torn up the plastic on my chicken pen door a lot worse than it was torn, but now I'm thinking it may have been one. This one might have to go to raccoon heaven as I don't know where they are coming from so wouldn't know where to return it to its home.

    I just hate raccoons! How can something so beautiful be so horrible. They sure would be easier to deal with if they were stupid. Aaack!

    TxGal, the Adapt 2030 podcast is Part 1 and Part 2 of the ones with Wayne Steiger. These were the better ones.

    Ready to listen to Diamond right now. Hope he's still off his pothead presentation...I really liked the one when he was being serious, not saying stupid stuff and making weird noises.

    Surviving the Super Grand Solar Minimum

    The Year of the Great Awakening

    Most of you who read this blog are already awake, at least I hope so. But how about the rest of the + Eight billion who never read this blog.

    What is coming down the line with the Super Grand Solar Minimum will become very apparent in the next coming years. 2021 will probably become the year of the "Great Awakening". People will wake up to the fact that there will not be enough food to go around to feed our almost 8 billion people who like to eat. That's when the panic will start.

    This panic will make it even worse as all the available food will be stripped off the market.

    If you remember when Americans thought there was a fuel shortage. They went to gas stations and stored much of the available gas in the gas tanks of their cars and trucks. It will be the same with food. When that happens people will start to starve. Not a pretty picture for sure.

    This blog is about me and the food I grew and can grow. It's nothing about my ego as it is really about you, especially if you are not growing your own food or just thinking about it.

    I am 76 years old and if an old grumpy Grandfather can grow food, just think about what you as a younger person can do and could grow.

    Also, this blog is about your survival and well being. You soon will not be allowed to sit at home and watch movies and entertain your self with social media. All that is soon to end. The US unless we wake up is going to become a place with much less food available to it's citizens.

    You are going to have to make up that missing food for your family.

    I have never had any training growing food except for watching my Grandparents 70 years ago get out a shovel and start one. You don't even need a shovel if you have read some of my blogs. I talk about a Ruth Stout garden in my book and in my blogs. If you need a quick way to start growing and reduced weeding then Ruth Stout is the way.

    Think about food and the Victory Garden during World War 2. Think about food that was grown during the great depression. My grandparents and parents went through all of that. My grandparents always had a garden and chickens. They raised a pig or two every year and had a smoke house for bacon and sausage. That was not that long ago, but modern food systems have made us into slaves of the Just In Time (JIT) delivery system at the local grocery store.

    As I said in one of my blogs, a very sweet and young woman asked me what I did with some seed packets I had purchased.

    Look at all the food in the picture below. At most, probably 300 seeds were used to grow that food

    The Above picture is some of produce I grew on our farm. Because it's rather dry here in Central Texas, everything was drip watered if needed. Could you believe that I could not sell yellow tomatoes or white egg plant? I bet that will change in the future!

    Because of global cooling and what that brings with it, the US, Europe and especially Canada is going to go off line. I like to think of Canada becoming an un-discovered place, as it will not be a food producing country for much longer. This applies to a large portion of the US, and Europe as they will suffer in the same way. Most people cannot wrap what I have written around their thick sculls. I can really understand that as mine was pretty thick as well.

    But it does not have to be that way if people just wake up now. You and millions and billions of people could quit depending on their JIT food supply and grow their own. It's not all that hard and there are many solutions. Even a child can start a garden with a bit of help.

    Growing your own food brings with it all kinds of good things like food security, and good health. It could become a rewarding global cooling business as well

    The world needs farmers, and you could easily become one. Also think community. Ten or twenty people could grow many thousands of pounds of food for many hundreds of people.

    That is the only direction that we can go if we want a sane world that is not plagued by wars and conflict.

    So in the coming blogs, I will be displaying what an old 76 year old Grandfather can do. If you are not now growing a garden, I hope it makes you feel bad.

    The future will need some very innovated methods of growing food. Perhaps you can come up with them. My idea is a more modern Chinese style greenhouse as shown below. If you take the simplicity of a Chinese greenhouse and add some technology like supplemental light, some fans and computer controlled monitoring, then you end up with a system that can probably operate in all sorts of environments. Drip watering and other ways of growing can can be implemented.

    Above is the general design. The greenhouse is open to the south and block the north with a wall. The inventive part of this design is the roll up blanket that can be rolled out when needed. If it's really cold at night, this would be ideal to keep what trapped heat is available in the greenhouse. You could also line the backside with black 55 gallon drums filled with water to capture heat. The above picture is a greenhouse growing strawberry's.

    OK, so much for this blog. In my next one I will have some of the pictures of what you can do on a small piece of land. Its been nice here in Central Texas. Looks like other places are not doing as well. The weather gods here are been really lazy lately, so I have been able to get ahead of them. Things are really looking really bad globally climate wise, so take you finger out of your ear and mouth and start that garden.

    Cheers
    Dennis

    China begins to close its nation to preserve resources to survive the Grand Solar Minimum now requiring by 2021 all PC and Software must be China made, no more imports. Billionaire mega yacht sales plunge indicating an imminent recession. Subliminal message s in hyper-inflated currency where a banana will cost $120,000.

    TxGal, where did you find this latest short Adapt 2030 video? I've checked his you tube channel and even refreshed several times, and it's just not there...the most recent one showing for me is the full version of the show with Wayne Steiger.

    I figured you would :-)

    Are you getting that nasty Arctic front this week? It's coming in overnight here, temps falling in a big way, strong wind, rain all day tomorrow...not looking to be warm for the rest of the week.

    60 and cloudy here right now, but, yes, temps will drop for tonight and then lots colder for the entire ten-day forecast. No rain showing until late next Sunday.

    Gee, almost looks like a December forecast!

    The next two days and nights are going to be extra chilly and I'm except for taking care of the chickens, I'm planning to stay bundled up and watch movies and crochet a new shawl. The layered fleece I've been using doesn't drape well enough nor does it cling well enough to my sweater and it keeps falling off of my shoulders. Brrr! I plan to make a nice thick shawl and by using the stitch count of an old one that isn't quite right, I can make the new one so it will be the right size and shape after it's done stretching like they always do.
