Re: Gardens in 2017

I have two raised beds and the rest of my plants in planters. zucchini was a battle this year. Out of all that I started, I got two plants. They're going strong out in one of the raised beds now. They were started by soaking the seeds for a few days and then into peat pots, then when they were bigge...

Re: What have you added to your preps this week?

Nothing new to report here this week. Haven't been to town in a few weeks, and it's been all about gardening here.

Re: Northern Living?

I live north of Sault Ste. Marie, and I can give you some insight based on my experiences. Winters are unpredictable. Some years are okay with tolerable temps but wicked snow dumpings. Last year we had one or two nights of -30 but 5' deep snow. and that's not even where the snow got piled! Year befo...

Re: Seeking Food Grade Buckets

I got a couple of 5 gallon food grade buckets from Home Depot the other day, but I'll absolutely be getting those Briden lids! A few #10 cans of stuff as well. Dragon Briden Solutions in Calgary carries food grade buckets which can be fitted with gamma lids. I am sure that other preparedness compani...

Re: What have you added to your preps this week?

Just finished putting together a shelving unit we bought to organize our extra food stores. We haven't been able to afford the unit until now, so it feels pretty good to have it now. Also put in an order for a 310 can of freeze-dried hamburger, and bought more batteries!

Re: Gay Preppers - Seriously

I wonder if American LGBT preppers will feel the need to be more cautious now that the current administration has begun to claw back rights. If I were living in the States, I know I would. All of the freedoms and increased acceptance of the past eight years seem to be in the process of being wiped o...

Re: Seeking Food Grade Buckets

I've done a bit more digging and found you're right. Those buckets are on the list for the next time I go to town, with the lids. But I will be replacing the lids with the ones from Briden next month. Then the plan is to start storing dry pasta, rice and beans. I find that Home Hardware sells them -...
