    Storage sizes

    Hiya guys and gals! I have been reading over the posts and something occurred to me that I have not seen addressed and I am curious as to your thoughts. So here goes: This year I started a garden because my goal is to can and set back as much food as possible for my family of three. I am of course storing store bought as well until I reach my goal. Eventually, I want my garden to produce enough veggies and stuff to have a year's worth of food stocked up. I have decided based on the amount of food that we eat per meal that I will be canning using smaller jars. I will do it because I am a stickler about wasting food. NOW....the big question: For all the items like 10# of rice or beans or whatever, when these are stored and the SHTF, let's say you open one of those 10# pkgs. How long will they last once opened? How do you store the other 9 pounds until you use it? I don't know if I missed this answer somewhere, but I didn't see it specifically addressed and my OCD is demanding I find the answer

    What type of SHTF event do you really want to experience

    I hope nothing EVER happens! I would much prefer to be that crazy lady that channeled chicken little ; ) But I think my biggest "fear" would be a pandemic of some sort and behind that, econonomic fall out, etc. What I have found from my reading and researching however, is that if I prep "properly" I hope to not have to worry about any of it. Of course that is my newbie opinion to all of this, but I think I'm on to something.

    Gardening and not using Heirlooms

    Okay that makes me feel better. My goal is self sustainablity (well as close as I can get where I live anyway), I just wasn't informed at the beginning of this little venture. Now I'm going to start researching how to start my seed bank.
  8. I got rid of my swimming pool this year and have some pretty lofty goals as I turn my backyard into my idea of gardening heaven. And my hubby's idea of oh God ANOTHER hobby! LOL Anyway, I am doing a combination of square foot gardening and container gardening but I did not purchase heirloom seeds and plants. Was this a major screwup on my part? What do you guys think?
