Before we start today, I would like to think Keith B, David P, James F and Andrew L for their generous donations this week. You all are the best – makes me proud to know that the content here has help you enough in your preps to warrant a donation. Thank you again…
I would also like to thank everyone for your suggestions on designing a new header for the blog – a couple of folks have sent in a few sample header designs but the designs did not compliment the current color or layout of the blog but crashed with it. Thank you for your help… we’ll get it right… eventually…
Okay, now let me see, what did I do to prep this week ?:-)
Spent probably 30 hours working on the layout of this blog – but that would be more of a prep to help you, than a prep for myself…
Put together a whole new total body work-out with my Weider Total Body Works 5000 Gym that I’ll be starting tomorrow. The Body Works 5000 works the same way as the Total Gym XLS Trainer but costs several hundred dollars less.
Bought paint to paint my chicken coop, come spring I’ll be adding ten more hens to the flock. I all have an order ready for several dwarf fruit trees, also looking into planting several dwarf nut trees. I like the dwarf tree because they’re fast growing (we don’t have time to wait 15 years for a tree to start producing) and they are easy to work with, I suggest that you plant some of these dwarf trees around your house and or retreat – here is a great article from the Mother Earth News (1986 issue) on how to do it.
Folks if you have an extra square foot of soil then I suggest that you plant something in it come spring. Plant a vegetables, plant herbs, plant dwarf trees, always plant something that you can eat or heal yourself with… Plant, plant, and plant some more. Hard times are here folks, money is tight and it’s going to get a lot worse for most of us, and if you’re going to eat well you’ll need to grow your own.
Here is a great book that will help you do that “The Backyard Homestead: Produce all the food you need on just a quarter acre!” you don’t have to own a full-sized farm or ranch to become self-reliant… Stock up, grow your own food and arm yourselves.
