Sometimes things are just to easy. :)
This year our family decided to finally put in a garden. Not just any garden. Oh no we go BIG or go Home! We chose a Staw Bale Garden. Why you ask? Here are a few reasons as to why we put in this type of garden:
*75% less labor
*Raised height, easy planting
*Extends the growing season
*Higher germination on seeds
*Impossible to overwater
*Holds moisture well
*Creates new media yearly
*Easy to move location
*Automated water daily is okay
*No crop rotation needed
Ever wonder how much food fits in a container? Wonder no more. The folks at USA Emergency Supply have a nicely laid out table listing many dozens of dry foods and approximately how many pounds of each is expected to fit inside different containers (from 1 gallon to 6 gallon). Very neat!
To make your emergency heater, you'll need:
Essential foods to stock in your Prepper's pantry
It’s severe weather season and now is the time to be prepared…
Once you’ve identified your tornado safe area in your home, you need a tornado safety kit with items such as:
Here is a list I found on Pinterest. I do not stock up on all of these items but I did find ideas of products I did not have that would come in handy. Like a portable potty.
These 100 Items will be the first things to disappear in an emergency situation. By stocking up on these Items, not only will you not have to do without, you will also have a huge arsenal of bartering Items for trading with others even if you have no use for the items because you were better prepared.
Find a working Gas Stove Cook Top at a garage sale, craigslist, Habitat for Humanity, thrift store, etc., and build your self one of these. I call it my e-prep, out door kitchen, canning kitchen DIY project. I found this picture on Pinterest with no link but I think it is self explanatory.
For these kits you need a wide mouthed canning jar (with lid and ring) 4 candles (like the one in the pictures) you can find these at Wilderness survival gear online for .99 cents each but they go down in price if you buy them in bulk. They are 5″ x 1.5″ candles will burn for 8 to 10 hours. I made 5 jars – one for each level of my home then extra’s just in case.
