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

Got the next 3 barrels scrubbed out, put in place, and filled, then went and got another 3 barrels. Got the one bed fileed and planted 8 Principe Borghese tomato plants (good tomatoes for drying), cilantro, pimento pepper and basil; then started "degrassing" one of the other 2 beds. Notice...

Re: What Anaesthetic Choices Do You Have In SHTF

For post SHTF anesthesia, start NOW growing herbs/plants that can be used for anesthetic purposes, and save the seed so that you always have fresh seed, PLUS youhave all of the "kinks"worked out in starting the seeds and growing the plants.

Re: Serama Chickens

Sorry...I've never heard of that particular breed...I have Plymouth Rocks, Buff Orpington, and Rhode Island Red. Still trying to get some Wyandottes, as well.

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

Got 2 eggplants planted, two of the basil plants, and 8 of my San Marzano tomato starts. Also got a support system for the tomato plants rigged up. Also got one of the new 4x10 beds "degrassed" so that I can get it filled and planted tomorrow. After that, I'll be working on the other two b...

Re: What did you do to prep today?

Got three 55-gallon barrels filled with water, and bought an additional 3 barrels (they need to be scrubbed out and aired out to get rid of the overpowering jalapeno smell prior to filling)

Also got some chicks to raise for future eggs...part of the SHTF survival plan.

Re: Got Floss?

It also works great for stitching up my horses when they get cut up. I've used it myself to stitch up my stupid dog when he tried to crawl under the chain link fence and tore a big 3-corner tear in his backside (on a holiday weekend when there wasn't a vet in town available, of course!) Dental flos...

Re: APN Sabbatical

Welcome back! Real life frequently takes precedence over "computer life". Hey, the important thing is that you were DOING some prepping, and not just TALKING about it!

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...
