Building your own greenhouse can be one of the best DIY projects you ever commit to. That’s because it’s an efficient, sustainable way to effectively stockpile all your delicious fruits and veggies, all in one place. It also helps them stay fresh longer, and doesn’t require you to spend a bunch of cash building it, either.
This is a really good thing, since fresh produce gives your body the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients it needs. And, although freeze-dried and canned foods are great, they simply can’t give you the same nutrients, straight from the source like home-grown produce can.
Most every prepper can agree on one thing: we hate spiders. These ugly creepy-crawlies have been giving people the heebie-jeebies for centuries. Whether it’s their eight legs, creepy eyes, or the quick, unpredictable way they scuttle across the floor, most people can’t stand the creatures.
It’s true, spiders are good for the environment. After all, they make excellent pest control, eating a number of bugs in your home. However, the fact is most people want spiders to be conducting this pest control outside, where they belong.
If you’re afraid of getting bitten by a spider (or hate the feeling of them crawling
Survival gardens take lots of work and maintenance. And, too often, bugs can swarm in and set up camp in the garden. This can ruin the plants in seconds, and leave the gardener feeling frustration and helplessness (to say the least).
True, pesticides can be an effective option. However, these contain toxic chemicals that may be harmful to both the gardener and the plants. Not to mention, in an SHTF situation, these can run out quickly, leaving the plants defenseless.
However, DIY sprays are very helpful because they can be made (and then re-made) in a pinch. Not to mention, they’re often
Most preppers know all about stocking up on survival food, survival tools, and survival water. But what about survival seeds?
The most incredible thing about survival seeds is that they’re already present in many of the fruits and vegetables you already eat. And, when you buy the organic versions, you can simply remove the seeds inside and collect them for your survival garden.
These seeds can provide you a practically limitless abundance of survival food in a crisis. And it’s one of the absolute cheapest ways you can get sustenance for a crisis!
As many preppers know, nature is a resource for lots of medicinal plants and herbs. Things like lamb’s ear and plantain plants provide an amazing amount of survival uses. These plants can help heal the body (and so much more).
However, there are certain plants that are much more controversial. Due to public opinion and fear of their potential negative side effects, society has marked these plants as “outcasts.” And, because of this, the government has made these plants illegal to possess – even for health purposes.
Regardless, the fact is in an SHTF situation things like government law and rules will
If you’ve had a bug infestation in your home, you’ve probably been using chemical pesticides to get rid of them.
And, although these pesticides may do their job, they’re still unsafe for human health – even if the label claims that they’re “safe” to be around humans.
Not to mention, chemical pesticides losing their potency and ability to do the job. That’s why it’s important to seek out a natural, effective solution that will kill off bugs and will be safe for humans to be around.
Why Chemical Pesticides Are Losing Their Potency
One of the craziest things to happen to chemical pesticides is
Cinder blocks don’t typically seem like they’re good for much. But the fact is, when SHTF, you can use these items for a whole heck of a lot in order to survive.
One of the top reasons these concrete building blocks are so useful is that they’re extremely strong (not to mention cheap). Heck, if you look in the right spots (like Craigslist or at a construction site) you can easily get them for Free.
When you’ve got a few, you’ll need to know how to use them. Here’s a few ideas to get your creativity juices flowing:
Every year, millions of people across the nation purchase new tires for their vehicle. And, once they replace the old tires, they typically dispose of the old ones without a second thought.
However, what these people don’t realize is that they’re wasting an incredibly important survival tool!
These tires end up in dumps and “tire graveyards,” where they sit doing nothing for years on-end. However, if people knew about their incredible uses for when SHTF, they would likely be picking them up left and right!
When you think about it, it’s truly shocking….
