For those of you that have not heard of Guerrilla Gardening. One of the things that we have done is put a small hidden food plot along routes that we are most likely to take to our BOL(s) The food plots are generally small 20'X20' hidden from roads and are near water sources that take care of the crops. Examples are 2 or more FRUIT TREES peach, nectarine, Apple, Pomegranite, Paw Paw, TUBER PLANTS Peanut, Jeruselum artichoke, potatoes, sweet potatoes, BERRIES grapes, Stawberry, Black berry, Blueberry, Amaranthe, Millet, Oat, Quinoa, We have each plot marked in a GPS system and we have route markers that let us know roughly where they are. We have also staged caches of supplies that might help resupply If we can not get to the house first.
I just came across this website on food storage. The woman who blogs here shares recipes for meals in a jar that she makes from dried foods; each is a complete meal for four people, and she basically walks you through prepping for at least a year's worth of food. Almost all of the meals can be made by adding them to a couple of cups of boiling water and stirring over a stove for a 10-30 minutes (depending on the item). Here's the link: http://cheftessbakeresse.blogspot.com/2011/04/emergency-preparedness-and-everyday.html They are all simple recipes, like taco soup, hamburger stew, beef noodles, fried rice, etc. Their shelf life isn't years long (more like a year or two), but the food is the stuff she and her family eats every day. That means that she's continually restocking the family pantry, and that in a SHTF situation the whole family would have non-expired food on hand that they are actually willing to eat!
