Chicken breeds, which is right?

Chicken breeds, which is right?
Host: Lynna “A Preppers Path

Chicken breedsTo Be or Not to Be-Chickens! Last we talked about whether you really should raise chickens or not, though they are relative easy to keep compared with other types of farm animals raising them isn’t a total walk in the park. Now that we’ve looked not only at the pro’s to the endeavor but also the con’s it’s time to climb another rung on ladder. Next step what sort of chicken do I want to raise, layers or perhaps just meat birds, some actually raise just one or the other and then again others raise both for a fresh supply of eggs and tender, juicy, hormone free delicious home grown chicken meat.

Freeze Dryer dryerwithfood3There are those that can off set the cost of that weekly grocery bill with their expertise in preserving food.

Host: Lynna “The Other side… A Preppers Path

Wood Burning 1903-2TThe wood burning stove or more affectionately the wood stove was a mainstay and center of many a home, giving up dominance as a necessary appliance in the home to the likes of coal, natural gas and electricity. The woodstove gradually lost its dominance on the heating scene bit by bit with the passing years and inventions, the stove and its predecessor the fireplace became more an aesthetic decoration rather than the efficient appliance it is, being relegated to the alternative section.

Dandelion The Dandy of All

Dandelion The Dandy of All Host: Lynna “The Other side… A Preppers Path

Dandelion OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPerhaps no other plant gets a worse rap than the dandelion, cursed vehemently by landscaper and homeowner alike, the dandy of all weeds. Perhaps it’s time to take a closer look at this golden beauty and her secrets, just what have you been missing.

Spring has sprung, or at least begun too! The field and lawns are turning that lush green and on a sunny day you can fairly see the blades stretch to the sun.  And then what should appear, a bright yellow shaggy dot, no not one dot but hundreds no maybe make that thousands. Ugh the dreaded dandy of all, the infamous, dandelion.  What’s so terrible, truly a field of dandelion is a cheery vision to behold, brilliant yellow dotting the carpet of green a pretty sight to behold yes?
Oh right, so long as it’s not your lawn. Continue reading Dandelion The Dandy of All
