Have a huge Zucchini show up in the garden like we did? Chunk it up and can it!

Strawberry Jam is the first project most folks learn canning with.

Cool idea!
Camping hack: fill a straw with pocket-sized amounts of first-aid ointment. Use a lighter to reseal the straw.

Herbs and lettuce plants fill these 18" pots. I moved them here to my new yard in November and have a ton of space to work with. It is exciting to be able to have this much room for my favorite obsession. I will be sharing more images from what has worked for me in containers. #Yesyoucan   #Garden   #Anywhere

It is an exciting venture to switch gardening modes from containers to full plot gardens. I am afraid I went a little overboard with my new projects, but why hold back? The summers in the desert where I live get too hot to wait on growing food plants, so I planted quite a few to see what works and what does not. What is your best or worst experience in #survivalgardening  ?? I used to have trouble with lettuce... till this year. Read more:

Frigid temps have me concerned about the container garden. I moved it to the living room yesterday. They will not get the light they need, but they won't freeze either. Covering outdoor plants that may be sensitive to cold and frost is smart planning.  Here are the container plants when I moved from the apartment. They have since been relocated to my patio until yesterday. They were blooming and adding produce so I wanted to protect them. My lemon tree has 5 ripening lemons on it. I treat them like they were pets. In a way they are. What do you do for your garden in winter? #containergarden   #preparedness   #preppertalk

Thank you for the invitation. I am currently changing locations and working on a holiday niche so my prep topics are on hold, but not the way I live them. Moving my food storage freaked my friends out. At this time I am moving a container garden to a real yard. The yard will be worked into usable garden space. We experienced a break in before we even moved in so I have a few posts about perimeter defense and how to cope with a new location with uncertain safety concerns. Will check with you all later! I look forward to all of your posts! (Image is courtesy of MorgueFile.com)

I have relocated my home. I was in a small apartment but now am in a house where I have a yard, lots of space, and tons of ideas. The Survival Recovery Den is now operational! YEY! =) (I am doing a little happy dancing here!) 

 I can not wait to apply some of the ideas I have gathered and share more tips with all of you. I have been away from the prepper topic for a little while, but mind you, it is never far from my side. I have been working on another niche of mine, but will be up and running as soon as the holidays are over and I can put all of these boxes where they belong! Thank you - all of those who have added me to your circles!  For now see www.survival-recovery.com or www.survivalrecovery.wordpress.com for my tips and recommendations on preparedness, survival, and food storage.

Wind can produce deadly projectiles with anything as you can read in this article. How do you prevent your lawn furniture and other items outdoors from becoming a hazard to your home and neighbors? Anchor it down and get it out of the way. High winds occur without warning when storms roll in. #winddamage   #Thunderstorms   #Vegas   #flashfloodwarning  
#winddamage  around Las Vegas produced some weird appearances. There was debris all over the valley and flooded streets. Our flash floods are dangerous but that wind was even more deadly. Read about how lucky one cab driver was here
