Hi all! I'm starting to get into growing and preserving my own food. We did this when I was a child, but it seems to be a forgotten art in today's times. I'm guilty of it. It's so convenient to just buy what you need and suffer the health effects. I'd like to get back to the basics. To do this I need sorces of information and that's where you all and this website come in . I've started some backyard chickens so now I need to prepare to grow crops come spring. I look forward to all of your great, inspirational ideas and how to instructions!
