    Why fight nature?

    Why fight nature?

    Today, we talk about working against nature and ask an important question: why?
    Today’s Sponsor: Paul Wheaton of Wheaton Labs and Permies.com
    Paul Wheaton over at Wheaton Labs just released 16 hours of footage from his Rocket Mass Heater Jamboree innovators event. Using very little fuel, and producing next to no smoke, the folks down at the lab created a rocket sauna, cooktop, dehydrator, kiln, and a bunch of heater options for smaller spaces, and full-size homes.

    Tales From The Prepper Pantry
    Precooking for SRF & the Food Forest Event - Lots of MEAT Transitioning out of the canning kitchen and back to winter drying and freeze drying Assessing if there is enough tomato crop to do one more round of salsa Frugality Tip From Margo
    First tip when traveling, is bring your snacks and road food, sandwiches or whatever you eat.  This will save a lot of money on the road. I use re-usable ziploc bags to pack food up and I bring a half of a sponge and a small bottle of dish soap on the road to make sure I will be able to wash them no matter where we stay.
    We keep a cooler in the car, I pre-freeze filtered water in 1 liter club soda bottles and use them in the cooler.  All of the places we stayed have a refrigerator with freezer and the water bottles get re-frozen to use in the cooler, and we had filtered water as a back up if we needed to drink it.
    For two nights I had rented an air bnb way outside of any town (even further out than the holler) lol.  Once we got there the first night, we were not driving back 30 min to a store and then trying to find this place in the dark.  I had packed some shelf stable foods that I did not need any tools to open, just in case.  And I was able to make us dinner, saving time and money that night. 
    Shopping Report for 9/18/2022
    We made five stops on our typical Saturday shopping trip. Traffic was light, and I only saw a few face-diapers.
    First stop was Dollar Tree. The store has a lot of inventory, but is beginning to look a little unkempt. The food aisles have a lot of viable stuff, but the health aisle has a lot of unusual things in place of some more typical items, that have not been restocked in some time. The drink coolers seem to have a better selection.
    Next was a Mexican store for a few specialty items like a vanilla flavoring and a few plantains. I've never seen their shelves not full. I've not done any real price comparison, but they have quite the variety. I've also never seen any kind of unpleasantness in there like arguing or rudeness.
    Hobby Lobby was next. Stock levels seemed good, with a lot of Fall junk in there now, but I did see a couple of empty islands; probably just re-organizing.
    Home Depot was #4. The price of a 2x4x8 has dropped again, to $3.98. We grabbed some Miracle Gro for next year; they had plenty of it. They also had a lot more sunflower seeds for birds than the last time we were there. They're more expensive, but there were at least three sizes, in big boxes. The quantities of common battery sizes like AA and AAA continue to drop. I'm glad I've switched to mostly rechargeable, but I'm going to order a few more. They have a LOT of solar lights in stock, much nicer than the cheap dollar store versions that are dim and barely make it through a season. They might be $6.xx, and I'm pretty sure they were at least twice if not three times that price earlier in the year. These make good guide lights; leave them outside during the day to charge,

Great encouragement

Always useful information on how to live a more self Sustainable life with in community.

Easy to listen to

I really like this podcast and Nicole seems like a cool, thoughtful lady. I love hearing about the intentional community she’s building in Tennessee as well as the goings on of her homestead/projects. I feel like most homesteading podcasts are either right wing preppers or Christian SAHMs and while I have nothing against either of those groups, I don’t always relate. It’s nice to hear the point of view of someone who just wants to build a good life.
