Food Storage In The Home

Category : Equipment, Food

food-storage-shelves1WHO SHOULD HAVE A FOOD STORAGE PROGRAM?

We never know what emergency may befall us during which we may not be able to obtain food or drink. The emergency may be loss of job or inability to work due to accident or illness. This may result in a situation where financial resources to purchase food would not be available or may be decreased appreciably. Natural catastrophe such as flood, earthquake or storms may result in temporary inability to distribute food to supermarkets. Under these conditions even having money to purchase food does not mean it can be obtained. Even in the United States each of the above conditions occurs occasionally. Because of the possibility of such emergencies the Civil Defense recommends storing food and drink adequate for your family’s needs for a two-week period. Certain church organizations have recommended their members “Have on hand a year’s supply of food, fuel, clothing and where possible money.”

WHY HAVE A FOOD STORAGE PROGRAM?

A food storage program is essential to provide for ourselves and our family members in an emergency. The biggest motivator most adults have is to avoid hearing a hungry child cry. Even the most “macho” man is distraught if he cannot provide food or beverage to prevent a child from suffering.

Companion Planting

Category : Communications, Equipment, Food, General Info

companion-plantingThe following is a list of vegetable and herbs which grow well together and protect one another from insect attack. Many herbs are natural insect repellents that can keep your garden bug free and reduce or eliminate the need for potentially harmful pesticides.

By using Companion Planting, many gardeners are discovering that they can discourage garden pests without harming helpful insects such as bees and ladybugs. Some herbs, through their odors or root secretions, will deter pests naturally. An added bonus is; these same herbs, planted as companions in your garden, will season the fruits and vegetables of your labor.

Some herbs even improve the flavor or growth rate of their companion vegetables. Companion planting is the ultimate way to bring the balance of nature into your garden. Just do your best to match the suitable herb with the suitable plant and the rest will follow.

How to Grow the Tomato and 115 Ways to Prepare it for the Table

Category : Equipment, Food

tomato1But few people realize what an important vegetable the tomato is. While, it is true that chemical analysis does not place it very high in the nutritive scale, if viewed from this angle alone its real value will be greatly underestimated.

For the reasons which follow, every normal person should make the tomato a very prominent part of the weekly diet:
• It is a vegetable that is easily grown.
• It yields well and keeps for a long time.
• It usually brings a fair price, because nearly everyone likes tomatoes. It contains distinct medicinal virtues (which are recognized by many authoritative books on household remedies), as “vegetable calomel.”
• It is both a relish and an appetizer as well as a food.
• Our soils can be made to bring enormous yields of tomatoes, superior in look, taste, and general appearance.
• They can be prepared in so many delicious ways that one can eat them every day in the week and not get tired of them.
• The old vines contain splendid dye-stuffs, which could be utilized as a by-product for dying fabrics of various kinds.

Introduction

Spend any amount of time in the outdoors and you have probably found that mealtime is full of trade-offs. Do you choose foods that fuel your body or foods that satisfy your taste buds? Do you spend the extra time to prepare a real meal or grab a protein bar on the go? Freezer Bag Cooking minimizes these trade-offs by changing the concepts of traditional outdoor food. It offers simplicity, convenience and variety. The cooking gear needed is minimal, lightweight and can be bought, found or even made. Meals are prepared at home and put into zip top freezer bags. When ready to eat, the meal is prepared in and eaten out of the freezer bag. Mealtime becomes fast, effortless and cleanup is as easy as licking your utensil and sealing the zip top bag. Also, with meals portioned into individual freezer bags, making meals for multi-day trips, families or a group is painless.

Garden Location

 The garden should have a southern exposure (south side of your home) or be in an open field if at all possible. There should be a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight at the chosen location. A well- drained site even after a heavy rain is ideal. Poor drainage may be improved by regrading, digging ditches, installing a tile drain field, or adding organic matter.

Camping Bag Preparations

I am preparing for a camping trip in the next month or so. This is going to be a primitive camping trip with at least 2, maybe 4 people in Ocala National Forest. This is to be 4 days, with nothing but what we have on our backs. Right now we’re getting gear together to work on practicing skills, enjoying the weather..etc. I’ve been camping with these guys before, but generally its on a defined camp site, within short walk if any walk at all to a freshwater spigot, toilets, parking..etc.  This time we just want to go out further into the sticks. Right now we’re looking at a couple different trails, the smallest one being 8 miles, but the longest one being something like 24 miles.
