Hows life treating you in the real world ? Still reeling from your grocery bill, frantically turning off everything electrical and killing yourself growing your own ? I was watching a video online from a lady of a certain age ,who was struggling to manage grow your own , why do people still think you have to struggle to grow the traditional veg garden ? No dig is excellent and a great use for the endless amazon packaging they gift you with . I crave another wood chipper i had to sell mine during a cash crisis so my fantasy is an even bigger model the sort you could put a body through , just think of the fertiliser you could make !! but the simple fact is that if you mulch your plants to death theres little work involved other than the odd bit of weeding needed plus theres much less watering involved . On the mulching front scrounge the neighbours grass cuttings if they dont use lawn chemicals.
I also watched a seriously batshit prepper of the UK variety , but he had a few nuggets of wisdom . People who are transferring cash from the bank into gold and silver . Dont bother you cant eat gold and silver , youre better buying bottles of spirits to barter with and theres the bonus you could just spend the end of days hammered...lol My abstract thought was the most valuable item in the event of a serious collapse of society would be tins of babymilk not everyone can breastfeed and it would be a really good barter item .So heres a few things i would like to think most of us would have kicking around if we were a tad paranoid .
A good herbal book with lots of pictures , and a good few herbs growing that you might need
Jam jars and lids , make sure you store them somewhere dust free its irritating if they get filthy in the shed
lots of home remedies , diarrhoea pills, antacids, generic hay fever pills, painkillers
lots of herbs and spices , dried or growing
duct tape and a big mixed jar of screws and nails can usually be found at the car boot sale
so thats todays list to think about ...lol Prep On
