Hubby went grocery shopping!


I must be losing my mind. I let my hubby go grocery shopping by him self. He did not do too too bad. Forgot some major items, but he did get me 3 canned hams and 3 boxes of powdered milk!! Which was very low priced. I think - it was $4.79 per box of 31 servings. Heck, even at Savalot it is $6.99 for the same size. I think that we will survive the few days it will be until I can go to the grocery store myself.

A Camping Hammock

This is so neat! I want one of these so bad. Lawson Hammock Camping Tent would really come in handy if you are stuck out some where in the open. You could get up and out of sight, but be protected from the elements. Really nifty idea. This is something that every single one of us needs for our BUG OUT BAGS!! Keep a couple of them in the trunk of your car.

Take A Hot Shower Anytime & Anywhere!!

Taking a hot shower can really make a huge difference. Nothing better than a hot shower and if times get really bad taking one can really make you feel better. With this ingenuous item, the ZODI Outback Gear Hot Tap Travel Shower
, you can take a hot shower anytime. It holds enough water to heat up for you to take a 10 minute shower. Which would be great for me - I only take a 5 minute shower now anyway. I really think that everyone should have one of these. If you can keep clean than it will make the situation so much better and easier to deal with.

Emergency preparedness the easy way. Food shopping guide and recipes.

This is a great site from my bookmarks. I love the simple ideas and recipes.

Working On Being Self Sufficient

I worked on my goals yesterday. I made some more powdered eggs for my baking needs stockpile. 2 dozen of them. They are so easy to make and fun. If you do not have a food dehydrator - YOU HAVE GOT TO GET ONE!! I have done so much since I got ours.

I also now have 25 pounds of baby navy beans and 20 pounds of 16 bean soup beans!! Beans are a great way to get filled up and a great way to get protein. I am going to stock up on some canned hams this weekend.

Our stockpile is really growing. It did not take long and did not take a ton of money either. It can be done. All that you have to do is jump in and start doing it. Baby steps. I started with sale at my local store. They would have those 10 for $10.00 sales and if it was something that I knew we ate a lot of I would go and get it. You can do it.

Grow Your Own Vegetables in a Small Space!

Nothing beats fresh vegetables out of your own garden. The taste of a freshly picked tomato is pure heaven and digging your own new, red potatoes is so rewarding. But what do you do if you don't have a large yard or no yard at all? No problem! You can grow a vegetable garden in a container!

Many people think of container gardening as an easy way to grow beautiful flowers and accent patios and porches with color. But have you ever tried adding a few vegetables in with the flowers? Growing vegetables and herbs in containers is just as easy as growing flowers and you get delicious results! You can mix a cherry tomato plant in with a pot of marigolds and snapdragons. The bright red fruit is a beautiful addition to the colorful blooms. Put a couple of red potato starts in a large planter with a few flowers, the foliage of potato plants is very beautiful and you will also have a few tiny white flowers as well.

How about dedicating a few planters to just produce? Strawberries often produce more fruit when planted in a container because they don't have much room to spread. Strawberry plants spread by sending out runners that root down and start a new plant. Once the strawberries run out of room to send out shoots, they put all their energy into producing fruit. How delicious to have fresh strawberries just outside your door!

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning a container garden.

Properly prepare your pot. Your pot will need good drainage so make sure it has drainage holes drilled in the bottom. If your pot does not have drainage holes, either drill holes or create a drainage area by adding a layer of gravel at the bottom. If you have a very large pot, you can create a drainage area and eliminate the need for large quantities of soil by adding a layer of Styrofoam at the bottom. This will also make the pot easier to move around. Just remember to add enough soil for the plants to have a good root system.

Don't use garden soil. The soil in your yard is generally too heavy for container use. A container gardening needs light soil that is rich in organic material for proper drainage. Mix regular potting soil with compost and peat moss to get a healthy soil that is perfect for containers. It is a good idea to mix in time release fertilizer while you are mixing the soil. Most time release fertilizers last about three months so plan to add more at that time.

When you are transplanting new plants, dig the hole about twice as large as the plants root ball. Then back fill the hole with some loose soil, this will give the tender roots soft soil to anchor in. Before you place the plant in the hole, massage the roots to break them up slightly. The plant roots have been confined to a small area while they are getting their start, however they need to break free and they need a little help from you to do that.

Give your plants a healthy start by using a root starting fertilizer as you are planting. Mix the liquid fertilizer with water and add it as you plant each new plant to your container. Root starting fertilizers contain the proper nutrients that help to prevent transplant shock.

Trim the plant after you plant it. This is a difficult thing for most gardeners to do. After all you just bought a beautiful, full plant at the store! You need to remember that the plant needs to put effort into building a strong root system. This is difficult if the plant is trying to maintain full blooms or large amounts of foliage as well. A good rule of thumb is to cut off the plant by two thirds. Don't worry, your plant will grow back fuller and healthier than before.

Combine plants with similar requirements. If a plant requires full sun, don't pair it up with a plant that does best in partial shade. Careful planning will yield the best results in container gardening.

Containers are a great way to have fresh produce all summer long. Growing your own fresh produce is rewarding and allows you to provide healthy food for your family. Give container gardening a try, you will love the results!

Stockpile & Preparedness Goals For The Rest Of March

I have a few goals that I have written down that need to be finished by the end of the month.

The most important one being to add some more baking supplies to my stockpile. I need to add sugar, flour, shortening, and more to my stockpile. I also want to stock pile some more canned meats. I have about 50 pounds of beans that I need to get some canned ham to season them with. That does not taste too bad and is cheap!!

I also want to get better prepared to being able to cook with out power. I need some more of the Coleman fuel bottles for out Coleman camp stove. I also have a local store that sells me the heat cell fuel cans for $1.00 each. So I plan on buying a case or 2 of those. A goal of buying some extra bags of charcoal for our grill is high up on the list also.

Another goal is to stockpile more condiments and basics. Like soup making items and other such items. Making a simple soup could be a life saver.

I really have a ton of goals that I want to get done. I just hope that I can get them all done by the end of the month. If I can I will just do the most important ones and save the basics for next month. I just am wanting to get these done before too much longer.

How to Make a Gravity Water Filter

Is your drinking water really safe? Just because it has no odor and tastes fine doesn't mean it is. Many contaminants are too small to see and have no odor. Of course, you can have your water tested and this is the best option to be sure it is safe. But some people still feel their water isn't as pure as they would like.

If you have decided you ought to filter your water but are unsure if it will make any difference, why not make your own trial carbon water filter? It isn't difficult or expensive, and it will give you the option of seeing what carbon can do to improve your water quality.

To begin this project, obtain these items: a twelve inch length of 2 1/2 inch PVC pipe, a 2 1/2 inch cap, a quantity of activated carbon, a piece of vinyl hose, and a paper coffee filter. You will also need a drill and bit the size of the outside diameter of the vinyl hose.

Drill a hole in the center of the PVC cap. Insert the vinyl hose into the hole, making sure it fits tightly. If it leaks, silicone sealant should be used. Push the cap onto the PVC pipe and, if needed, seal it with PVC sealer. Next, fold the piece of filter paper and push it into the PVC pipe so that it covers the hole in the cap.

Add the carbon to the open end of the PVC and pour water over it until it is full. Point the vinyl hose into a container where the filtered water can collect. You may want to discard the first batch of filtered water since it might have washed out contaminants from the project.

A stand can be made with two 4 inch squares of wood, a wooden base and attached upright. Drill a hole in each 4 inch square large enough for the PVC. Then screw the wood blocks to the upright piece and insert your filter. A setscrew can be used in one of the square supports so the PVC does not slide down.

Here are a few things to consider if you make your own filter. First, the longer the pipe, the more water it will hold and the more charcoal it will pass over before exiting the unit. In other words, the longer the PVC pipe, the better it is. Second, periodically replace the carbon and clean out the PVC pipe while it is empty. How often this needs to be done depends on how much water you filter through it.

You may not get a great quantity of water using this inexpensive method, but it will be enough to drink and, if the container is refilled regularly, you can store the purified water for future use.

If this sounds like too much work, consider the Berkey Water Filter line. The Black Berkey purification elements that ship with the Berkey Filters are so powerful, they can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. And since they are gravity fed, no electricity is needed. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.
