The Prepper Shaker:
A "Growing" Epidemic

Will you be one of the "vital few" or the "trivial many?". We've got an epidemic of our own we need to spread, and it has nothing to do with swine flu! Growing a sustainable family garden can and should become as common and important again as the family car. Why? Find out in this compelling and timely article by Master Gardener Jim Kennard: A "Growing" Epidemic

From the Funny Farm: Tater Tots

When it comes to prepping,
some people are like potatoes:

  • Some watch while others do the work. They're the Speck-Taters.

  • Some talk about what others are doing. They're the Common-Taters.

  • Some cause problems and get under your skin. They're the Aggie-Taters.

  • Some make plans and never do anything. They're the Hessie-Taters.

  • Some sit for hours and stare at their food storage. They're the Medi-Taters.

  • And some steal other's work and call it their own. They're the Imi-Taters.

  • Fortunately, some people really DO get prepared, and do everything they can to help others do the same. They're the Facili-Taters.

So what kind of 'Tater' are you?
Now there's some food for 'Tot."  Smiling with a Wink!

Prep Talk: Weed 'Em and Reap!

I love this little piece by Bruno Gideon:


Even the most casual of gardeners knows that weeds, if unpicked, will eventually destroy a beautiful garden.

It’s the same with our thoughts. If we don’t weed out the negative ones, they will choke whatever is beautiful in our lives and trap us in a bitterness from which there is almost no escape.

"Give weeds an inch and they’ll take your yard."
-- Anonymous

"And so it criticized each flower,
This supercilious seed;
Until it woke one summer hour,
And found itself a weed."
–- Mildred Howells

The trick is to be like a good gardener and weed out negative thoughts before they take control of our health and our charisma.

Be on the watch for them each and every day. As soon as you detect one, ask yourself, “Is it really worth letting this take over my life?” and get rid of it as soon as you can.

Is a negative thought threatening your garden right now? Pull it out!
