  1. I'm with you jerry. I tilled up both of my gardens this past weekend and got everything ready to plant my peas and cabbage next week. Everything else should be ready to go into the ground by the middle of Feb.

    Growing your own food

    I have a 12'x12' garden and I have no luck growing the things I want!! This past year sucked. I planted 1 or 2 plants of things that I didnt need alot of (like tomatoes, gr peppers, thyme and dill) and that stuff went crazy!!! But the things that I love (cabbage, broccoli, onions and chives) wouldnt grow at all. Now my gardens a mess cuz the thyme went to seed and it ALL over the place. Ive only had the garden for 3 yrs now and Im @ a complete loss on how to get this right. Oh and if anyone could please tell me how to control the weeds in my garden I would be so very grateful! Im tired of spending almost everyday for and hr or so just pulling weeds.

    Vehicle kit

    One thing I've been told by tire people is not to use fix-a-flat. If you do the tire people will not fix the tire. For this reason a keep a full size (not a donut) tire and a big jack in my truck. The spare tire is just that - a spare since its pretty worn out. My father also told me to keep a bottle of Coke in the car too. Supposedly it helps with the corrosion on the battery connectors? Never had to try it out so I'm not sure if it really works! Otherwise maybe some electrical tape and an emergency candle. I heard that it can heat a small car up by a couple of degrees.
  4. Growing up in MN/ND boarder I can empathize with your situation. At least your better prepared than most. Hopefully everything will go back to normal soon.
  5. Hey y'all! First I wanted to say that I've been checking out these forums now for about 8 months and have really enjoyed it. I like to camp and fish and do other outdoor-like stuff so I joined this site to learn how to be more self-sufficient. I wasn't what I would call a "prepper" until a few months ago when I started stockpiling food and water. I think I have enough stuff for right now and want to gain more knowledge and start putting everything to the test. This site has been great so far, everyone keep up the good work!!
