    I'm studying plants that grow like weeds, but are edible. Right now I'm thinking about planting Mustard and Purslane.

    You will find Purslane to be sooooo easy to grow. It takes little effort and little effort to harvest and store seeds. You can propagate it throughout the year just by pinching off a piece and placing that piece in the soil. It will start a new plant. It is one of the most prolific plants I have every come across without being invasive. It stays put where ever you place it. I cannot tout its growing benefits enough. It will not age well for eating so it is best to pick it early. It's not bad when it gets old it just does not look as good.

    I've stepped up on stocking up on water since the tornadoes came to town this last April. i refilled 6-1 gallon water jugs and bought a 5 gallon jug of water for water dispensers.I've been stocking up on diff meats.packaged and canned alike.I've home canned several pints of chicken in broth.i bought a refillable salt n pepper grinders.the salt grinder shaker will be mostly for the himalayan pink salt i already have.

    Looking at a whole house generator for those hurricane disruptions. With the FIL on oxygen and requiring air conditioning, itíll take a big one. Itíll also need to be self starting and automatically switched. Iíll probably go with NG then I wonít have a tank. Any experienced recommendations?

    Last week I got electric and the well pump operational at the farm. I still need to take a water sample in for analysis.

    22 kw sounds about right, I install gas to generators.
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    I increase my food prep constantly. I just bought another3 pack of lifestraws. My packs were mostly "tactical". I decided to put together a more urban looking bag to get home. It works for a night or two in the woods as well. It's a Mystery Ranch.

    Since my repair remained unfinished, the first thing I will go to IKEA is to buy the remaining equipment, and just things for the house. I will pay attention to HOW I SPAM YOU IN THE FUTURE.

    Achtung! Placing zee spam in zee post is verboten. Tell your muder you are not allowed out of zee basement. You are now in timeout.

    Added 3 more strawberry plants, 2 blackberry vines, cut several dead trees on the property and cut it up for firewood. Downloaded a set of plans for a chicken tractor ( project for memorial day weekend) started setting up my reloading equipment, ordered 2 more dies and bought 1000 pistol primers for reloading.
    If by what I have learned over the years, allow me to help one person to start to prepare. If all the mistakes I have made, let me give one person the wisdom that allows them to save their life or the life of a loved one in an emergency. Then I will truly know that all the work I have done will have been worth every minute.

    Updating our BOB's (even though we're not walking our fat selves far loaded). Filled 2 propane tanks out of the camper. Continuing buying just a bit more at the grocery than we need when the truck comes in. Hedging a little each time on meds. Looking at vaccum sealers.

    Got electric and water run to my camper at the farm. Now I have a full hookup. Still need to have a big lp tank brought out. Worked on my clandestine garden from some land I cleared in the swamp. Itís going to take awhile. Itís full of roots.
