Morning! I am Genevieve. My husband of 29 yrs and I have 5 acres here the Wild and Wonderful. I have been working on our stockpile of supplies for a few years now. I just now this past summer got the hubby on board! I finally dragged him kicking into the right way to think: My next step is to convince him we need chickens! LOL This year is the first year that I have started canning food. IMO, with the turn of events here in the US and the world, it is the prudent person who is prepared for what may be coming. I hope I can contribute to the forum.
