Garden Is Loving This Humid Weather

Still am having trouble of not having my own computer, but at least one good thing is happening this week - Our garden has been growing a lot with all of this humidity. I think. I might be wrong, but it seems like this past week the garden plants have tripled in size. Just loving the heat, sun , and humidity. Oh and the few pop-up storms. I have not had to water the garden, but once this past week. The man across the way put a bunch of mulch around his trees and some flowers in the front of his place. I noticed him when we left to go to the store yesterday and we all waved at each other. Well, when we came home, there was a small pile of mulch in front of our small garden and a note saying to put this around the veggies!! How nice is that??? I guess we do have a couple of nice neighbors. LOL

Having No Computer Is Not Good!

I really am not liking not having my own computer anymore. I am so behind in the news. My son just so happened to go to a friends house to watch the NBA draft and that is the only way that I am on here now. I am trying to catch up on news. A lot happened in the past couple of days. It is so sad that I do not know what is going on since I have no cable, and now no computer. I am so down in the dumps right now. I am reading the new articles from my favorite blog, The last one is this interesting one - “Super EMP” Capable of Disabling Power Grid Across Lower 48 States. Very scary stuff there. I have read the Book One Second After a couple of times and having an all out EMP attack would be horrible. I guess the only thing that we can all do is prepare for the worst. Have survival food supply ,like Shelf Reliance THRIVE Starter Variety Pack 493 Total Servings Six, 10 Cans, Grab and Go 84 Meals Freeze Dried Survival Food, and Meal Ready to Eat (MRE), 12 Pack Case, Ration! We also need to have medical items and water.

Top Reasons to have Food Storage


Let’s face it. The thought of food storage is a bit daunting right? We know, we get it. With that being said, the reason it’s constantly discussed and we’re pushed to get it done is because of how truly important it is. More importantly the uncertainties we face are out of our control, yet we have complete control on how we prepare for it.

At Wise Foods, we’ve explored, experienced and truly innovated food storage. The purpose of food storage is to be ready for any situation. Beyond a 72 Hour Emergency Meal Kit for ONLY $59 (Cook in the pouch entrees. 3 days/4 servings per day/ 20 ounce lunch and dinner entrees) - Order Today!, we’ve compiled the top reasons to have food storage.

Natural Disasters

Unfortunately for some, you’re put into a situation because of a particular crisis. This could be anything from an earthquake, flood, fire, hurricanes, tornadoes — the list is never ending it feels like. It’s common for most of us to think, “that will never to happen to me”, but believe me it does. Luckily though, if you’ve prepared for such a tragic event you’ll be ready to face it.

Food Preparation

As you work to prepare your food storage plan, you’ll find that it teaches you about the fundamentals of food preparation. As you buy foods for your food storage you’ll notice certain foods have different shelf life, have certain types of preparation, etc. This makes you consider all types of things as you compile your food storage.

Emergency Preparedness

I can think of a handful of things we pay for on a monthly basis that are as important as food storage. We know they’ll pay off for us. We should all think about Food Storage the same way. Food storage is no different and will no doubt pay dividends when you and your family enter into a time of need or desperation.

How to Build a Small Patio Garden

In these times of economic recession and high unemployment, many people are looking for ways to save money. One option they may be looking at is to plant and grow a home garden, but if they live in an apartment or a townhouse or even a house with a small yard, they should consider learning how to build a small patio garden.. A small garden can be created using small containers, flower pots, baskets, cinder blocks, window boxes, and even raised beds. A variety of vegetables (regular as well as miniature) and herbs can be used to create not only a useful space, but also an aesthetically pleasing area.

One thing important to the success of a small patio garden is the planting medium that is selected. A visit to your local nursery or and garden center will be worth your time and effort. Not only can they recommend a good planting medium, but they can also help you select vegetable and herb plants (or seeds) that will be able to grow in your local climate and environment.

A small patio garden can not only be beneficial to the pocketbook, but can also be a fun and educational project for the whole family. Small children might be more prone to eat their vegetables if they participated in the growing of those vegetables. AND the taste of home-grown vegetables compared to canned vegetables or "fresh" vegetables purchased at the local grocery store cannot be compared--home grown tastes SO MUCH BETTER!

So, what are you waiting for? Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. Get your family together and make plans for your garden!!

I have many interests in my life including gardening. I believe that home gardening is a way to save money as well as bring the family together. It doesn't take a lot of money and it can also be fun! Check out how you and your family can build a small patio garden.

Taking A Break From Prepping

I am going to take a couple of days off from prepping to do some sewing. I really cannot do too much until my garden starts producing and then I will be dehydrating and freezing. Then I will be busy. Hopefully. I hope that my garden gets to growing better. Maybe this heat and humidity we have been having the last few days will speed it up! But, for now, I will be catching up on some sewing. I have some new tops, aprons, and bonnets to sew. Fun Fun Fun!!

Our Poor Little Garden

Finally have some growth in our garden! The green peppers and the brussel sprouts are not doing anything, but the tomatoes, baby corn, zuchinni, cucumbers, green beans, and the strawberries are doing great! I had to go and buy tomato cages today and need to get some stakes for the beans.
I think that the super wet weather that we had up until a week ago really messed our garden up a bit. I was scared that it would be drowned.

Get Up Early

This is what I do when I know that it is going to be super hot later on in the day. I get up really early to get all of my house work, baking, laundry , and more done. That way when it is hotter I can be in the house relaxing and keeping cool.


This is a great tip for anyone.
