When an event occurs I’m looking at growing my own food. Because of this I want to get the kit together and start now. One of the areas I was looking at previously was hydrophonics so I could grow my food a tad more secure than sticking it in the ground where I couldn’t get at it before it was ready. To this end I was looking at container planting and hydrophonics. There is a guy just down the road who sells hydrophinics gear, gear that I will be buying under an assumed name and using cash. Don’t want plod searching my house looking for whacky baccy.
As part of this I was looking at what I could grow that would give me the best return on my kit. Sadly, it seems that for the best return on investment you really need to be a bad guy and grow illegal drugs. Drugs which will grow quite well in the UK btw.
I’m not ready to take the step from ordinary Joe to Ordinary Pablo mainly because I don’t want my house ripped apart by a bunch of heavy fisted morons looking to meet an immoral and impossible goal so I’m looking at what I can make legally. Basically, there are three high value legal products in the UK today; Fuel, Booze and Smokes. I haven’t got the land to make fuel so it isn’t worth trying, I’d hate to have someone blind on my conscience so that leaves smokes.
Tobacco can easily be grown in the UK. It can even thrive outside in the North of Scotland. It can be grown easily in an unheated greenhouse across the UK and the leaves are not very distinctive so that your nosey neighbours don’t turn you in. A good crop can keep a couple of smokers going for a couple of years so you can imagine how much that is even if it is from Mr White Van. Consider the benefits if you are paying UK prices, the savings over what you would get in the shops, the knowledge that it is not loaded up with crap and, most importantly, knowing you were not paying those extra taxes to the government.
No other crop even comes close to how much you can save. I’m starting my crop over the next few weeks. By the time it is harvested it will be worth even more as sin taxes increase.
