It is no secret I am anticipating an event.
I am a farmer, gardener and forager in the most abundant place on earth, please hear my words, there will not be enough food next winter. The unprecedented weather activity this year will create havoc with food production. Frost, flood and fire take time to recover from.
Last year, the vine which usually gives over 800 pounds of grapes, gave none - why? The fruit did not ripen. Some fruit did not produce because a late frost killed the tender buds. Most crops here were a write off and I have only filled the top of my fridge's freezer with food. Normally we go through a x-large freezer during the winter.
All my turkey flock is gone after 10 years, the last one 2 to bears. The bears, which are now 2 year old cubs and their mom (400 pounds at least), have demolished much of the orchard. The snakes and weasels have been getting my chicks and eggs.
We got 50 turkey chicks year but they all died one at time over a month period. Because of this the breeder no longer supplies them rendering them extinct. The replacement breed chick costs $10 each chick. Chicken chicks are $5 each. Ten years ago, they sold for $1.
There were over 594 earthquakes (over 4) this month. I have been following this daily for years, and I can tell you the number is on the rise like never before. Magnetic shift, jet stream split, EMPs, GMOs, . . . .And let's not get started about how the infrastructure of this modern world is collapsing . . .
The only way to prepare for the future is to start preparing for the future. Survival starts in your kitchen and yard. It is not a worry, it is to be free of worry. Keep following this blog, and my friends blogs listed to the right on this page, to learn how.
Do not be afraid of the future.
There is nothing to fear.
Living as freely as nature intended is immeasurably satisfying.
The world is still trying to be a wonderful place,
are you doing your part?
