Ep. 16- Where Am I Going to Put All of This Stuff?

Welcome Fellow Preppers!! Thank you for joining me for Episode 16 of Passionate About Prepping! I’m flying solo today. Joey opted out since our topic is a bit out of his area of expertise.

I had a conversation with a Facebook friend earlier in the week and she mentioned having trouble finding places to put all of her preps. I dung through my memory banks and did some research, and have a list of ideas on creative ways to store your preps!

I found the link for the 5 gallon bucket washing machine for those that are interested. It’s by FoodStorageMoms.com.

And here’s the link for the Five Gallon Pack I mentioned.

Please share your creative storage idea with us below!! Have a great week!

Happy Prepping!!!

Ep. 15- Let’s Think Spring

Welcome Fellow Preppers!! Thank you for joining us for Episode 15 of Passionate about Prepping!

Even though we are in the throws of Winter, it’s not too soon to start thinking about Spring and our gardens. Garden planning is a great way to beat the winter blues and cabin fever. So grab your note pad and start taking notes!!

Resources for this weeks show:

The Old Farmer’s Almanac is a great resource for garden planning. You can find information such as Long Range Weather Forecasts, Moon Phases (which affect hunting, fishing and your garden output) and they also have a downloadable Garden Planner.

Mother Earth News is also another great resource, but it’s geared toward the more experienced gardener.

Here’s a great blog on winter composting.

If you want to get creative because of space issues or poor soil quality, try Strawbale Gardening or Container Gardening (lots of great articles here). Another method that can be applied to either of these is Square Foot Gardening. This method is usually done in the ground, but the ideas can be applied to container and strawbale gardens too. The idea is to plant different fruits, veggies and herbs together to make them happier and thrive in a smaller area.

I hope this gave you some good ideas on planning your Spring garden. Please share any good tips you find in the comment section below!

In the mean time, Happy Prepping!
