    Yes, I have a small flock right now..back yard chickens! Anyway, I think if anything was going on and food was hard to come by, the city wouldn't make a fuss if the numbers went up. I could find a few roosters for sure. ;) Trees, we have three apple trees, and a pear. I want a peach really bad! We do know how to do gardens. Getting older, have had many years of experience, just don't do a real big one now. But could if needed. Goats!! I would love to have some goats.

    and don't forget foraging! Even in the city. I know they say you shouldn't forage close to a road, but I'm tellin' ya-- if I and my family was starving....

    This is an awesome thread. I store basics. Rice, beans, salt, mac-n-chease, water. I never have enough sugars or fats. We use our storage like a deep pantry and just replenish as we use it.

    As I was pulling weeds in the garden today... I was thinking about the chickweed I was pulling, and the purslane..and how they're both edible. They just don't 'fit' in my neat little rows...

    my heart broke today. I discovered a jar of home-made lard that went moldy. Apparently I didn't get enough water out before I canned it :hit

    Oh no, Britesea, that sucks :( It is a bit depressing when you can something and you open it and see it went off. Hopefully it's just one jar?
