Ranch Style beans or any other canned beans works good as well. Also keep peanut butter on hand, it's a great source of protein.

We have a couple acres we’ve cultivated. We have our own machinery, so putting in a huge ass garden is pretty easy peasy. It’s also easy to string up cows and deer and the like. Thankfully!! 🙂

Me and my wife are starting a raised bed garden this year, and we're both avid hunters of small and large game
Message permalink: 704703969712275476
I live in town, but my wife and I had the idea to put a listing on Craigslist to look for gardening land nearby in exchange for as much produce as the landowner wanted from the garden. Now we have 16, 50-foot rows about 20 minutes away that's ready for planting in a week or two. If you don't have space, consider asking around. We got a lot of responses. Older people often love having a garden to putter around in but they can't always get it started. We got lucky, our new friends are willing to help with weeding and watering, plus they've got chickens and space for goats/pigs.

Glad to see like minded people when it comes to gardening. Its certainly something everyone can try at some scale, and an excellent way to start or grow community interaction! Anyone try aquaponics at all?
Message permalink: 704902160592404490
@Cowboy the closest I've done with that is trying to grow pot with some kind of ghetto hydroponics rig not straight bare bone aquaponics yet

The good thing was I wasn't behind the curve on guns and ammo like a bunch of other people where I was actually hooking up my coworkers during the gun panic a couple weeks ago so I was set on the most expensive component of the prep plan

It was really good. I made Mojo Picon sauce I used to eat in the canary islands. Bit of a cheffy type myself. Taught my friend his whole emt course and got him through his exams, in exchange he took me into his restaurant and taught me what he could.
