Re: Purple sweet potatoes- sprouting! page 2 planted 2 slips- they grow fast!

Re: Purple sweet potatoes- sprouting! page 2 free pots and potting soil

Here is how i plant "green". the purples are growing roots- 1 in long in 2 days, and the cut in half is also starting roots about 1/4" above the cut. For pots, i cut in half an empty 42oz oatmeal, and put a plastic bag in it. the plastic lid becomes the bottom. For soil, i'm using last years pile of...

Re: Purple sweet potatoes- sprouting! page 2

Been wanting to try growing these for 2 years. Said to be the most healthy vegetable- a tribe that ate these did not get any western diseases :shock: no cancer, no heart disease, etc. Don't know if the variety is the ones i have, or if the story is true, BUT they are delicious without any spices!

Re: Milk Alternatives

i use canola oil anytime i want to gain weight. if 5 meals a day isn't enough calories, i add 1 tablespoon on 1 meal. did that for 6 mos, gained 3 lbs. so now, no more!
the term "empty calories" to me, means oil. no nutrition, just calories :twisted:

DIY- 10+ amp Cordless car battery charger- Dewalt 20v AND million volt DC step-down in China

My car battery is 6 yrs old, so i made up a charger in case it gets too weak to crank while i am out. Since i have two 20v 4ah Dewalt tool packs from my ebike, i hooked 1 to this 300w $6 module https://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-DC-Converter-10-12-15-20A-150-250-300-400-1200W-Step-up-Step-down-Buck-Boosts/...

Re: Tips on using lifestyle to improve immune response and survive any virus

Leftie Even tho i posted the suggestion that lifestyle could improve survival, i would like to see scientific proof to verify the idea that it is the food.

Re: Tips on using lifestyle to improve immune response and survive any virus

Dr Esselstyn proved in a scientific study that what you eat sure does matter. He REVERSED heart disease with near ZERO saturated fat diet. up to 7% fat is OK but more is risky. My health did not improve w/vegan until i got the fat way down. corn chip and chocolate are now gone, but peanut butter rem...

Re: Baked my own, experimental NO FAT CHIPS - yeast shortage solution pg 2

i put one 60w bulb under the pans in the center for 1 hour. worked very good. cut sugar to 1 teaspoon, so i conclude it is mild heat, not sugar, that gives a good rise on 1/2 tea. of yeast :bigthumb:

Re: The Pursuit of Happiness - Declaration of Independence- Top 10 things not in the constitution

My favorite hobby in 1972 was racing "rich" guys that had expensive cars, with my highly modified (by me) 1963 Valiant that i paid $75 for. At the time, nobody had ever seen a turbocharger, and one loser thought it was AC. :lol: i only lost ONCE in about 17 races. (guy towed the car on a trailer, mi...

Re: Baked my own, experimental NO FAT CHIPS - yeast shortage solution pg 2

so i cut back on the sugar to 2 teaspoons, and went up 1 more rack. VERY pleased.
The secret to using less yeast appears to be warming the rolls before baking. i switched on the oven 60w light, but the rolls far away droop. :lol:
so i plan to put a 60w bulbs under each pan for a test. :bolt:
