Homesteading and Survival Preparation

I have been doing a lot of reading about homesteading and gardening. These two articles I read today and wanted to bookmark so decided to share on here instead.

This will be my first year growing fruits and vegetables, and I am drawn to container gardening as well as raised planter beds and using space efficiently. This article is about making a vertical strawberry garden. So clever! http://thehomesteadsurvival.com/vertical-strawberry-tube-planter/#.URqWfKV9Kf9

This is from a disaster preparation blog and is the 10 essential skills necessary for survival. Whether you think the world will end or not, these 10 things are useful in everyday life and just being a prepared individual in general. http://thesurvivalmom.com/2013/02/12/10-essential-skills-necessary-for-survival/

All you need is pure castor oil and olive oil. Ignore the thought that says oil clogs pores. Some may, but not all oils are created equal. Go here for the whole article http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-6050/How-to-Make-Your-Own-Natural-Face-Cleanser.html
