2 Weeks to Make a 3 month Food Supply

Category : Equipment, Food

We encourage everyone worldwide to prepare for adversity in life by having a basic supply of food andwww.prepperideas.com bag
water and some money in savings.
We ask that you be wise as you store food and water and build your savings. Do not go to extremes; it is not
prudent, for example, to go into debt to establish your food storage all at once. With careful planning, you can,
over time, establish a home storage supply and a financial reserve.”
“Build a small supply of food that is part of your normal, daily diet. One way to do this is to purchase a few extra
items each week to build a one-week supply of food. Then you can gradually increase your supply until it is
sufficient for three months. These items should be rotated regularly to avoid spoilage.”

storage.
The following basic items are recommended for storage. Indicated is the approximate amount of each needed to sustain an average adult for one year:

Properly Drying Foods

Category : Equipment, Food

Drying or dehydratiowww.prepperideas.com - drying foodn, the oldest method of food preservation, is particularly successful in the hot, dry climates found in much of New Mexico. Quite simply, drying reduces moisture necessary for bacterial growth that eventually causes
deterioration. Successful dehydration depends upon a slow steady heat supply to assure that food is dried from the inside to the outside. Drying is also an inexact art. Size of pieces, relative moisture, and the method selected all affect the time required to dehydrate a food adequately.

Methods of Drying
Foods may be sun dried with or without a solar dehydrator, in a gas or electric oven, or with a portable electric dehydrator. Dehydrators with thermostats provide better control over poor weather conditions and food quality than sun drying.
An effective solar dehydrator is the shelf above the back seat of a car. Clotheslines are another popular drying rack for ears of corn and strips of jerky. Colorful red chile ristras hung from vigas are practical as well as decorative.

Fishing Worm Tips

Category : Equipment, Food

raising-red-worms-e1321632704411This article focuses on those who are beginner to novice anglers. Catching worms (nightcrawlers, and the common “redworm”) can be both easy and fun. Nightcrawlers thrive best in warm, moist earth or other areas where compost like earth is abundant. Nightcrawlers come out at night, and can be easily located using a dim source of light (flashlight with a plastic colored cover, or a light stick). Look for nightcrawlers after dark, under vegetation, around compost piles, parks, or anywhere that is damp. Nightcrawlers do not bite, but may feel cold and slimy to the touch. When you locate one, grasp it by the top quickly, and slight pull upwards using gentle soft pressure, until the worm is dislodged from its hole.

Natural Pesticide Remedies

grow_natpest_ladybugPrevention is the best medicine

• Pull out any weak plants. They may already be infected. If not, they will attract predators. Pull the plant and dispose of it away from the garden area.

• Build healthy, organic soil. Natural composting methods, mulching and top-dressing your soil with compost or natural fertilizer is the best way to develop strong, vigorous plants.

• Seaweed mulch or spray. Seaweed contains trace elements such as iron, zinc, barium, calcium, sulfur and magnesium, which promote healthy development in plants. Seaweed fertilizer in mulch or spray form will enhance growth and give plants the strength to withstand disease. Seaweed mulch also repels slugs.

• Minimize insect habitat. Clear garden area of debris and weeds which are breeding places for insects. Use clean mulch.

• Interplant and rotate crops. Insect pests are often plant specific. When plantings are mixed, pests are less likely to spread throughout a crop. Rotating crops each year is a common method to avoid re-infestation of pests which have over-wintered in the bed.

• Keep foliage dry.Water early so foliage will be dry for most of the day. Wet foliage encourages insect and fungal damage to your plants. See our page on drip-irrigation for methods of delivering water to the root systems without wetting the foliage.

• Disinfect. If you’ve been working with infested plants, clean your tools before moving on to other garden areas. This will reduce the speed of invading insects.
