Re: What to do with 5 gal buckets?

I use them to hold potting soil, seed starting mix, storing garden seeds, and numerous other uses around the place.

Re: APRIL 2016 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

The mesquite is now OUT of my garden area (there are a few roots that still need to be pulled) since the folks with the heavy equipment came this afternoon. Also, the hole for the sump for my aquaponics system has been finished. (That excavator does in a few minutes what it took my husband and I hou...

Re: Billions of Bees Murdered

As far as I know, they are trying to keep a lid on it until the USDA completes it's investigation. Also, the media are more concerned with some stupid singer croaking (when someone mentioned it at rehearsal last night, I thought their DOG had died.)I than bees being killed. It's not a topic they're ...

Billions of Bees Murdered

Went to pick up my order of bees today, and found out that ALL of the bees had arrived dead! Not just the bees for the store here, but ALL of the bees on ALL of the trucks destined for our state were dead. (I found out from their corporate headquarters.) The report was that they had ALL been sprayed...

Re: APRIL 2016 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Icefire, be careful not to double down on your concussion. Getting concussed for a second time before you heal up from the first can really cause complications. not saying you need to hide indoors, just be careful when in situations that could hit your head. Be well! I don't plan on any more concus...

Re: APRIL 2016 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Ack, Icefire! Judging by your car, that was a nasty accident. I hope you are taking it easy for a few days -- concussions are not funny. Dumb question: what do you do with the feathery skin after you peel the chicken? Went to work today, but cut out to go to the Dr. for a post-accident checkup. He ...

Re: Harvest Rite Freeze Dryer

I WISH I had one, but they are definitely way OUT of my price range.

Re: WHAT' IN THIS FOOD? INGREDIENTS LISTS ON LABELS

Beware of processed chicken products or any processed frozen food products, a lot of that stuff from what I've read is made in china, I can't even imagine. So now people are aware they are taking off country of origin on packaging. Tonight for dinner we had chicken that I personally raised, "h...

Re: APRIL 2016 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

Today I "harvested" one of the meat chickens (first time doing it.) The others were pecking it so badly, that not only had they drawn blood, they were working on killing it. So, did the merciful thing and put it out of it's misery. Funny thing was, husband and daughter (who were nearby, bu...

Not only do they produce great rose hips, but I also love them for their "deterrent" value.

Re: How much cash do you carry?

A lot of stores here won't take any bills larger than 20's (drug cartels passing counterfeit large bills, and several places have been "burned".) Plus, the ATMs only spit out 20's, so they're most common. I would only get larger bills when I'd go inside the bank to pull out an amount large...

Re: Unscheduled Fed Meeting Monday 4/11

They're planning something and it will not be pretty. That's why I'm in the process of removing the majority of my money OUT of the bank, except for what's there to pay bills. I can get up to $500 per day from the ATM, so I just swing by the machine, pull out my daily amount, and "stash" ...

Re: Edible Plants That Grow Where You Live

Around here, the "wild edibles" tend to be mesquite (the dried pods make a highly nutritious flour, and the pods when still tender can be made into jellies, etc.); prickly pear (both the pads and the fruit, called "tuna" are edible); cholla blossoms; various other cacti; dandelio...

Re: Why are people infatuated with post apocalyptic fantasie

Well, I didn't watch the video (they always "crash" my browser) but as to WHY people are infatuated with post apocalyptic fantasies, I think that it is because if they think about those (which are not very likely to happen) then they don't have to deal with the REALITY of stuff that's goin...

Re: How much cash do you carry?

My dad always made sure that he had $200 in his wallet at any given time, "just in case" I never knew him to need it, but he had it nevertheless.
