 By Bev,

March is here and it was -20 last night, high today is subzero, prediction for tonight is another -20 and nights will stay subzero for another couple of days… I am sooooo tired of winter!

Yes, I need more pop cans.

Yes, I need more pop cans.


What did I do to prepare this week? I am still focussed on heat as my heating bill was more than double what it usually is this time of year. I finished off my Mylar shades and window coverings for all but the garage windows. I ran out of Mylar! Time to order more…  I also “finished” my pop can solar heater – now I just need sun instead of snow to see how it works. After testing, I will share it with you and give you my personal opinion. I also cut up some Pepsi bottles for more winter sown perennials and bought some Miracle Grow potting soil.

And my Kitchen Scraps Garden is GROWING!


Iceberg lettuce restart!

Iceberg lettuce restart!

 Iceberg lettuce is not on “The List” but seems to be regrowing, although not a head.



Romaine lettuce is doing okay. I have them in a self-watering container and their are spots wetter than others. One, I think, is dying from being too wet. One just didn’t start, but one is doing great and I’ve even been nibbling on it. And check out those onions! However, my big onions with just the roots in the soil haven’t started yet.

Did anyone notice our Thermal Cooker Contest? I don’t have any entries! Not interested in this oh so valuable tool?

Coming up this week the WE2s have graciously shared some of their vast knowledge on prepping and we are going to have a WE2 Week! Trust me, you are going to LOVE their insights and learn – I did!

This site is all about YOU! The older prepper. SHARE!

40s, 50s and 60s jukebox music – THIS will bring back memories! ENJOY!

A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions.

The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”
