A drip irrigation system can save you time, money and conserve water. This drip irrigation system can be turned on and left to do its job without you having to stand over it to monitor its progress. Using water wisely with a drip irrigation system will produce a garden that will supply you with fresh vegetables for your family.
I planted a garden in my backyard but was spending a lot of time and effort keeping it watered. My step-dad had built several drip irrigation systems from PVC pipe in his yard so with his help we built a drip irrigation system for my garden.
Total cost of supplies was under $50 for a garden 15 ft x 15 ft. Approximate time to build this system was about 5 hours including the pick up of supplies. Below are the steps we took to build this system.
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.
