Re: Just For Fun - Prepper Property

The "cabin" looks like a tear-down (or BURN down)and the junk pile needs removed, but that's a good price for the acreage. Is there water and septic on-site? If not, putting in a septic system can set you back 5k-10k, depending on the requirements/county codes. Putting in a well can run yo...

Re: MARCH 2017 - What Did You do To Prep This Week/Month?

Got taxes done this evening. Unfortunately we OWE on fed...but our state refund will cover the fed bill, and leave us a little bit over, as well.

Also got notified that our little goat buckling is ready for pick-up, so we'll go tomorrow afternoon to get him.

Re: Cryptocurrency for investments?

If it's not physically in your possession, you don't own it. Scores of investors here in the US THINK they own silver or gold because they invested in an electronic fund through a well established brokerage. If you were to read the fine print in the contract, you would see that most of the time you...

Re: How to best take advantage of forest fire damage

Lime will RAISE the pH, while sulfur will lower it. Used coffee grounds are great mulch/soil amendment for plants that like acidic condition. You can frequently get used grounds from coffee shops and restaurants. As much as I hate Starbucks, they are great about saving up their used coffee grounds f...

Re: Guinea pigs as livestock??????

Same here...Guinea pig is just WAY too much like a rat. Chickens, at least, are dual purpose...eggs as well as meat. Plus, I already HAVE the chickens!

Re: Potatoes: Another Container Gardening Idea

Years ago, when we were in PA, I grew potatoes in a couple of 50+ gallon plastic garbage cans that I'd poked a bunch of drain holes into. Filled the bottom 1/4 of the cans with soil, planted the taters, then as they grew, covered the growing plants with leaves and straw. Worked REALLY well, and harv...

I escaped from there decades ago. The ONLY reason I EVER go back there is to visit my Mother.

Re: Where to Run, If a Nuclear Bomb is Dropped

Fortunately, where I am, they wouldn't bother wasting a nuke on cactus and mesquite scrubland. Nothing here worth bothering with.

Re: Toilet Plume

A long time ago I read that this "toilet Plume" will mist over the whole bathroom if you don't close the lid first. It will even cover your toothbrush with nasty germs. For this reason I will never brush my teeth again. In communal bathrooms this can be a major problem as this fecal matte...

Re: What are you doing on this first day of spring?

Since I'm working, I'll have just about enough time after getting home to shovel several day's worth of manure out of the corral (it goes into a pile to compost for the garden), feed horses and goats, and collect eggs before going in and starting dinner.

Re: GARDENING AND OTHER THINGS TO LEARN

The Mother Earth News Fairs are great. I went to the very first one they ever had, there at Seven Springs (that was when we lived in PA...it was only about a half hour from where we lived. They are DEFINITELY worth going to...get tickets for the entire weekend, as there is WAY too much to absorb and...
