Survival Seed & the China Connection April 30 2017In his most famous work, Nuclear War Survival Skills, Cresson wrote of an episode in China concerning survival seeds. It was only later that I discovered the extent of his legendary career – as a courier to the Czechoslovakian underground smuggling anti-Nazis from the grasp of the Third Reich in the run-up to World War II and as a demolition Officer in the OSS (the precursor to what later became the CIA) in southern China ahead of the Japanese invasion...

ATOMIC HARVEST April 13 2016
Palm trees swayed gently in the dappled sunlight as the languid surf inside the coral reef caressed a crescent of white sand. The timeless vision of an idyllic south sea paradise was marred by the fleet of ninety-five warships anchored in the lagoon...more>>
Grizzly Raids March 20 2016With the approach of October I began to have some qualms about the proximity of the apple orchard to the garden and the annual bear invasions. On our next trip to town we bought an infrared game camera with a motion sensor, determined to establish the identity of the nocturnal guests who continued to dine on our vegetables...more>>
Chief & the Community Garden March 17 2016
I was approached to help organize and lead a new community garden with a group of people who had never attempted to grow so much as a radish. The proposal was to plow up a length of gnarly sod next to a storm-drain fed creek in the middle of town and give everyone at the community center a spot to try their hand at gardening. People would grow their own food, harvest it, and go home happy. Cue the ominous music…more>>

Crop Report 2016 - Part II
Nothing disturbed the still air except for the raucous cries of a pack of magpies engaged in their morning disputations over in the neighbor’s horse pasture...
A distant droning crept into the periphery of my silent ruminations...more>>
Crop Report 2016 - Part I February 16 2016
I continue to be amazed at the sheer vitality of the Alpine Varietal of Painted Mountain Corn seed. After only one week in our latest germination tests the corn sprouts are two inches long and bursting with tenacious vigor. Last summer I even discovered corn growing like weeds in the cracks of a concrete driveway where stray kernels had lodged during our shelling episode the previous year...more>>

Freedom's Harvest Part I September 24 2014
It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.
—Samuel Adams (1722-1803), American Revolutionary
At 4 AM the moon had set. There was no hint of dawn in the eastern sky as Orion, the mighty hunter, blazed through the starry heavens to herald the turn of the season. more>>
The Dangerous Summer April 27 2014
“The revolution occurred in the hearts and minds of the people and in pulpits throughout the colonies long before a shot was fired.” All across the American Redoubt and in other strongholds across the land, the Rocky Mountain Corn Project is catching fire. Farmers, gardeners, ranchers and liberty-minded folk from all walks of life are sowing and harvesting these seeds of freedom. more>>
Fried Frogs and Commissars March 13 2014Have you ever chased a slick-skinned, sixteen inch bullfrog around the kitchen while your mama's hollering, "get that frog out of my house"? Well you can take this literally, figuratively or any way you want but it doesn't change the underlying reality. more>>
Of Plowshares and Swords March 12 2013
“We happy farmers of the American Redoubt…”
We happy farmers of the American Redoubt approach the coming growing season of 2013 with a resolute confidence, secure in the Providence of our cause and armed with the knowledge of our experience. Join our band of citizen-farmers laying the foundation of a nascent alpine republic here in the northern Rockies. We draw on the rich traditions of our forebearers...more>>
The Secret Weapon January 20 2012A secret weapon has emerged from deep in the American Redoubt and the wild mountains of Montana. The word is slowly spreading through local gun shows and in certain circles on the Internet. This new development has ancient roots that augur well for the ultimate security and independence of the Redoubt. It is a vital key on the road to freedom for individuals and families...more>>
