Double Dose: What Did I Do To Prep This Week?

Hello all – hope everyone is doing well.

Over the past couple weeks the weather here in South Carolina has been all over the place. Some days it rains and rains and rains. Other days it is hot and humid. We have even had some very, very cool nights. Kinda strange. Regardless – my gardens are running a little behind.

Right now I have little teeny cucumber and squash growing. My potato plants are starting to go by. Blackberry’s are appearing and my strawberry’s have been filling some birds belly’s due to my laziness not putting up bird netting. Crap.

I have been inventorying and organizing my preparedness supplies. I have managed to pick up several hundred rounds of .22LR, as well as some 9mm and .45ACP. All ammunition seems to be becoming more prevalent in my area – and I am taking advantage. Magazines for AR’s and pistols also seem to be readily available again. One observation: Prices are still elevated and I doubt they will ever return to 2012 prices. Regardless – I continue to stock up.

On another note: I visited a Children’s Home in my town. Abused children go there and are provided shelter, food, school, and love. It is a shame that such a place has to exist. My reasoning for going over here was to look at assisting them with moving some dirt so they can create a “Healing Garden” for the children to grow vegetables. The Church Men’s Group I belong to are going to go move the dirt for them and till it up. I hope in some small way it shines a little light on what many of these kids are seeing as a very dark world.

Take care all –



By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.

What did I do to prep this week?

By Bev Sandlin, Executive Editor

With the Oklahoma tornadoes, floods at home, and hurricanes, volcanoes, earthquakes around the world this week… Well, I’m beginning to wonder…!

What a great week finishing up Harold’s first tour in Korea! And we have lots more planned for this week!

And what did I do to prepare this week? I am gardening with a vengeance—still! Garden got washed out with 5 inches of rain, and so did the downtown and several families evacuated. But, hey, I can replant and have been doing exactly that! But the perennial asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries, currants, blueberries, elderberry, grapes, and dwarf apples are loving the moisture after last year’s drought!

Coming up this week! More of Harold’s Chronicles! And more gardening articles!

Okay Patriots, what did YOU do this week to prepare?


A smile for you…
