Hey, Buffalo! I grew up near Gowanda, hubby's from Jamestown :D

We've been in northern Illinois for 22 years...would love to move back to the ol' hood!

Welcome!
Thanks everyone ...cclady u better get here soon before we're an all Amish state, lol. Just joking according to news reports we're experiencing a population increase from the Amish.

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.
