Did you know you can grow potatoes over winter? I didn’t. Some even say planting in fall is better than the spring. I need to try this out.
Quote from backwoodshome.com
My family has made a practice of planting Irish potatoes in the fall rather than in the early spring. We tried it both ways for many years and our conclusions are that, season after season, fall planting seems to work better for us.
Now that I know I can do this, guess what we will be growing this fall / winter.. you got it.. growing potatoes! I could even sell what I don’t eat to my neighbors. Failing that I can always can them.
I probably should can them and then I have some good starch and carbs in my food stockpile. Read the full article below and if you are going to be trying this out please let us know by going to our Facebook page and leaving us a comment.

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.
