I am so happy I read this article. I say that because I need to plant trees to create privacy and a little shade. I was thinking about planting Leyland Cypress trees around my property but what I didn’t realist is if you don’t keep them trimmed they can die and become very messy to clean up.
homeandgardeningideas.com has put together a list of 13 trees that you probably should NOT consider planting. With explanations why and pictures to show you the trees, hopefully you can make a better decision for your garden, and sanity.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
