Aquaponics for Prepping

AQUAPONICS FOR PREPPING By Anthony Faircloth (Author’s note: Please note that the system I describe below is a large “backyard” aquaponics system and is not to be confused with an extensive commercial system.) The Dream Imagine that you have the ability to walk to a building, such as a barn or a greenhouse or even an inside room like your basement, where you harvest a few pounds of fish.

Information on Freezing Foods

While writing a tip for the weekly prep tip email, I came across some good information that I wanted to pass along.  There are three PDFs put out by the North Dakota and Iowa State University Extensions about freezing foods.  Being one to never to pass up databasing great prep information, I also downloaded them to my computer and stuck them into my notes database. Additionally, I uploaded them to this website, and am putting the links to both the PDFs here and in their original locations. I’m archiving the PDFs here on this site because information sometimes goes missing … Continue reading

I Didn't Think of That!

Hey, I didn’t think of that! Every happen to you? It happens to all of us, and to me all the time I must admit. I keep a little note pad with me almost all the time, and when something pops into my head, I write it down. I think is a good practice to everyone to do, but especially for us preppers. This can apply to more than spontaneous thought. Last night my family ran out of ketchup. Not a big deal, but i don’t like running out of anything. It was just something that I didn’t think about, … Continue reading

We’ve also been harping on the fact that there isn’t a lot of time to get ready. There are many crises currently facing us today and we simply don’t have the luxury of time on our side.

Here is a list of everyday food items that many of us use. These items are relatively inexpensive, take up little space, and can be easily found. These are also items that will be subject inflation and “supply and demand” issues; and if the supply is disrupted, will quickly become scarce. Peanut Butter Rice and Pastas … Continue reading

Sign of the Times?

Nebraska was the last state in the union to pass Safe Haven laws and in there inability to agree on a maximum age, a bill was passed without an age restriction. This has resulted in people dropping of many of their older children, I mean teenagers… according to the target new article: five 17-year-olds, two 16-year-olds, six 15-year-olds, two 14-year-olds, three 13-year-olds — have been abandoned, along with eight children who were 11 or 12.
