I would encourage you to do something every week to help with your personal preparedness. Learn something, buy something, teach something or do something. Doing a little each week will pay off .

Our Garden Is Plowed! WOO HOO!!!

Just have to share - our garden is ready to be planted. Isn't the dirt so lovely!!! I will be posting more as the summer goes by about our garden - this is the main place I spend my time during the warm time of year here.
DId you know that for every $100 you spend on seeds, fertilizer, etc. you save apx $1500???? That is a huge savings!

Herb Garden

The weather is finally getting warm here! Yesterday I did the cullinary herb garden. (I haven't finished the medicinal garden yet.)

I try to grow most of my herbs/spices for our yearly seasonings needs. It is amazing how much of this stuff you can fit in a small space. We have the following planted in our cullinary herb bed:

  1. Basil
  2. Parsely
  3. Thyme
  4. Sage
  5. Rosemary
  6. Chives
  7. Oregano
  8. Marjoram
  9. Garlic
  10. Dill

They are all heirloom variety so I gather seeds and use them for the next year on the plants that aren't perenials.
