Week 13 Food Storage Challenge
1000 multi Vitamins/ Canned Vegetables
1000 Multi Vitamins, You may not be able to eat as well as you should so a multi vitamin will help ensure you have all the nutrients that you need.
Canned Vegetables, Even if you can your own it would be good if you had a few extra cans or jars on hand (You can also have dried if you don’t want to have to try and store all the extra cans or jars). Just in case you have a year that your garden doesn’t produce as well as it should.
If you don't have a lot of extra vegetables from your garden that you can dehydrate, a quick and easy way to dry vegetables is to buy the frozen at the store then all you have to do is put them on your dehydrator trays and dry. (No need to blanch or anything they are ready to go.)
The thing to get this month is seeds. Try to get heirloom if at all possible, then you can harvest the seeds for next year. Get extra and keep in a cool place.
If you haven’t planned you garden yet now is the time. Even if you only have a small place, you can plant a few things. There is a lot of info on the Internet for small space gardening, there is some really good information Here. If at all possible grow extra so you can put back enough for winter.
If you don’t already have a car kit in each vehicle try to do that this month. Be sure to include extra food ,water and blanket,
The skill for this month is to learn to crochet or knit. This way you can make blankets, socks, scarves, sweaters and baby things and many other things.
Add some more to your money stash.
Have a great week.
