    Hey Sourdough...my little sis lives in Fairbanks...parents are visiting and were in your area a couple weeks ago:)

    Pelenaka, I grew up next to an Amish community...good neighbors...prefer them to most, so no worries if they are taking over!

    Thanks everyone.
    Well in addition to prepping I garden - intensive raised beds but I have a huge issue with lack of direct sunlight. We have a small orchard of 2 peach trees, 3 & apples. Red Raspberries, black berries, and of course strawberries.
    I also urban forage mostly apples & pears, but I also get plants like lilacs or antique roses. The I use them either in my own garden or as barter. I do allot of bartering - pies, or seedlings like heirloom tomatoes, or fancy salad greens. Truthfully anything that I can turn into a barter op I try to.
    I also glean, can, dehydrate, the usual homesteading activities just in an urban setting.
