Re: APRIL 2014 - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month?

Got three 55-gallon barrels filled with water, and bought an additional 3 barrels that will need to be scrubbed and aired out to diminish the overpowering jalapeno smell. Also picked up some chicks...a Buff Orpington, 2 barred Plymouth Rocks, and one Rhode Island Red. I am also planning on getting a...

Re: Prep Test--Pocket Chainsaw

I don't remember if it was ordered rom Sportsman's Guide, or the CH Kadel's catalog. Either way, they're pretty much the same. You can also "coil" the saw so that it stores more compactly. I keep mine in a quart sized ziploc freezer bag to keep it from "chewing up" anything in my...

Prep Test--Pocket Chainsaw

Today we had the chance to test out a little goodie from my BOB--my "Pocket Chainsaw". Mind you, this is NOT the flimsy little wire saw, but a meaty little length of saw chain attached to handles. Husband was trying to cut down a 3-inch diameter tree branch that was over out heads. I dug t...

Re: APRIL 2014 - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month?

Picked up 2 more of the 55 gallon barrels today...turns out they had "salad peppers" in them...from GREECE! (they have the info embossed into the plastic). Got them scrubbed out, and they are now "airing" out prior to being filled. Will probably pick up 3 or 4 more later in the w...

Re: Just out of curiousity...what's your eyesight?

I USED to have really BAD eyesight (If someone was standing right in front of me and I took off my glasses, I wouldn't be able to see their face). Had PRK (Photo Radial Keratectomy) eye surgery several years ago, and now for distance, hunting and most things, I'm in the 20/20 to 20/25 range. (I'm mi...

Re: What is the latest prep item or skill you've added?

Got a 55 gallon barrel already set up as a rain barrel (already had the spigot installed, and has a 2-piece gasketed lid. Had to scrub it out with baking soda, and now it's airing out to get rid of the overpowering jalapeno smell. But, for $35, it was worth it! Also harvested over a pound of snow pe...

Re: need a gluten free bread recipe

It is interesting that some people who are normally intolerant of gluten can actually eat wheat ground at home from particular brands. Sort of makes one wonder what is going into the wheat processed for commerical bakery flour! Most of the commercially available flour has been "enriched" ...

Re: Satsuma oranges

If you trellis your squash at the back of that garden bed, and grow it vertically, then you can use the rest of the area for growing other things, as well. By using companion planting principles, you can grow quite a lot in that 5x15 area.

Re: Tamiflu and Relenza: work, but not very well!

I use the elderberry both as a preventative AND as a "cure" for both flu and the common cold. Since I am allergic to the flu vaccine, AND work with kids, elderberry and LOTS of handwashing are my defense against getting sick in the first place. If I DO start to come down with anything, I c...

Re: Blended honey is not honey, says FDA

Until we are out on some acreage and can have hives of our own, I get my honey from a local beekeeper who sells honey at the Farmer's Market and the Community Market where I sell my excess garden goodies. I haven't purchased honey from a store in years. Since I know my suppliers, I know that I'm get...

Re: What are your top threats for 2014?

#1 on my list...the Economy.

After that, the possibilities of natural disasters of one type or another (wildfires are a constant threat around here) or biological threats.
