One of the best things about gardening is that you can wind up saving a lot of money of you do a good job on it. Ok, It will cost you a few bucks to get your first garden going, get your seeds in the ground and your feet off of it (the ground, that is :)). However, you can start saving some serious cash on your grocery expenses once you get the hang of growing your own fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices. Nothing tastes quite as good as garden to table.
Aside from the obvious benefits like healthier eating, environmental friendliness… gardening is fun! Let’s face it, it’s the only time adults can play in the dirt for their own amusement. I came across this fun DIY Garden project that I thought you would enjoy. So… have fun!
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.
