This crisis caught most of us by surprise. I am no exception. But today, i share with you some of the lessons I have learned.
We underwent counselling for @PanKwake’s hoarding. I own the title prepper as you can see from this special edition. But in a time when I have not been able to get a grocery delivery for six weeks, when the shelves are still bare despite assurances that things would right themselves in a couple of weeks, and facing at least 12-weeks and possibly a year or more of self-isolation -those of you who condemn me for hoarding/prepping can *F*off.
When we bought our @HomeCrazzyHome, we never imagined that one day it would become an urban homestead and farm. But in these challenging times, food security for your family and those you care about means hard work, dedication, planning, and preparation.
Having a raised bed in your garden is all well and good but once it is there, how do you make the most of it? Traditional methods such as rows don’t work as well in smaller spaces. Find out what does.
The headlines were dour. Everyone was blaming the few people who had prepared for this crisis well in advance. But a news article this week shines some surprising light on the true culprit. There was little ‘hoarding.’ It was just everyone suddenly buying a week’s worth of their normal shop instead of daily.
We like to think we can do it all. After all isn’t that what Do-It-Yourself means? But sometimes and somethings aren’t as easily done that way. How do you know? How to you decide? And how do you find the right people for the jobs?
