My preps aren't aimed at creating a vast stash of backup supplies, just 14 days of food and water if a disaster or other major event forces me to shelter-in-place, or causes disruptions to the food supply chain.

This weekend I'll head out to buy a few flats of bottled water. Slow and steady wins the race.


That is exactly how it should be (in my opinion!). Too many people become obsessed...

Busy with work and the garden these days. Will likely pickle 20+ pounds of beets over the next couple of days, trying different brine recipes. Ordered a 23L pressure canner from Amazon so can't wait to see how this will work out. Re-stocked my medical supplies after my wife and I's surgeries over the last year and added a few more different kinds of dressings and bandages; I now have a large plastic tote nearly full.

I'm shopping for a 3rd large rain water container (caged ~ 1000L plastic tank) for the acreage. I'm not in a rush, but if I see one coming up in the local area, I'll go get it.

Seabucktorn berries should be ready soon!!
