Be Prepared - April

Happy Spring everyone!! The weather has been gorgeous here in Arizona! Well I hope you all did well last month collecting your fats and oils and your meals for your 72 hour kits. I did pretty good. Here is a picture of my 72 hour kit meals.

Don't mind the bucket I have something else in mind for that.

I was only missing a set for one backpack and I scored a fantastic deal at Emergency Essentials for the MRE pouches.

For the month of April it’s going to a fun and fairly easy one for food storage. This month’s challenge is to collect seeds for planting a garden. This is something that my family has already been doing for a couple of years now. When we had to move in with my in-laws I had suggested to my father-in-law that we need to plant a garden for food storage. He immediately loved the idea and started prepping the backyard for gardening. We have since found vegetables that we love such as beets, yellow squash, tomatoes and onions for canning.  Mmmm! We have since moved out of their house but only live down the street so once the vegetables are ripe we set aside a Saturday to prep and can them.

Anyways I’m going to share some gardening tips with you that I have found that could be useful to you to get your own family garden going.

First decide what you are going to grow. Second determine how much space you need and where you will put your garden. Then how you want it to look. Here is link for more info at Better Homes and Garden.
There are many types of gardens out there that you can choose from to fit your family’s needs and your space.

Container Gardens

Remember have fun with this as it can be very rewarding .

Here is the link for the April file. I will also have a link in my Printables tab as well along with the previous months.
