April 1, 2014 - "Beekeeping For Your Backyard or Homestead Webinar" How's your week starting? It's sunny and 70 in Virginia today and supposed to be 75 the next two days. The trees are budding out and the forsythia and redbuds are starting to bloom, so spring is definitely here. I'm excited to start working in and planting in my garden this week. My friend Rob - who joined me for our webinars on Garden Planning and Seed Starting - is coming back Tuesday night at 9:00 pm Eastern to talk about getting started with beekeeping for your backyard or homestead. Rob has been a backyard beekeeper for 13 years, and takes a natural approach to bee management. He has his own bee extraction business, and is the president of one of the largest beekeeping clubs in Richmond, Virginia. On Tuesday's webinar, Rob will discuss:

  • Why you should consider keeping bees
  • What types of hives you can use
  • What equipment is necessary to get started
  • How to get bees
  • When you can expect to get honey
  • How much getting started costs
Beekeeping is one of the best ways to help your vegetable and fruit production through pollination, and produce your own honey - the best natural sweetener that also has medicinal uses.

Tuesday, April 1st
9:00pm Eastern Time

March 27, 2014 - "Keep Calm And Compress The Chest - Dealing With Medical Emergencies" By Emma Naylor. In the event of a disaster, there are many things which people will need. Food, water, shelter, and the necessary knowledge to obtain, prepare, and create these things are essentials. But of crucial importance also is at least some basic medical knowledge. The human body is fallible, and without the necessary training and means to put it back together again when it goes wrong, much disaster-preparedness would be a waste of time. click here

March 21, 2014 - "Canning Salmon" People are often surprised when I tell them I can my own fish.

January 23, 2014 - "Survival Defense Crafting a Fire-Hardened Spear" by Josh. Although being prepared generally means having the best means of defense available, there may be situations where you need a more primitive means of defense. The spear was historically used from the earliest times and even into the modern era in some places, and it still has its place when you’re stuck in the wilderness and in need of a weapon. Of course you can just use a knife or some rocks to shape a stick into a spear point, but a little bit of hardening by a campfire can drastically improve the durability and performance of your spear, making it a highly recommended step.

January 9, 2014 - "Canning Journal" by Moirakris. A Canning Journal is a good thing to start once you begin canning. It helps you keep track of not only what was canned, but when it was and any other notes that may be applicable to the batch. By writing down the recipes and impressions of your canning adventures, it will serve as not only as a reminder of what went into the food that you're eating but will also remind you of each step you took in creating that recipe.

January 8, 2014 - "Barrel Composter" by HFI_Matt. Build a barrel composter or buy a barrel. I built my own barrel composter to keep rats, mice, and other pest away from my compost pile and speed up composting time. We put food scrapes in the compost pile and naturally it will bring pest looking for foods if they can get to it. The barrel composter keeps out pest but let's in other beneficial bugs that will help the compost break down even faster then it does in the barrel. Since all my compost goes into the barrel it holds in moisture and heat. Not only that but I am able to turn the barrel a lot easier then turning a pile on the ground with a shovel or pitchfork.

January 3, 2014 - "How to Make a Better Strawberry Pallet Planter" Over the past year I've come across scores of DIY pallet projects, some of them intriguing and others not quite there yet but still having potential. One that I see time and again is the idea of using a single wooden pallet as a strawberry planter. Filled with soil and with plants inserted in the gaps they're usually leaned up against a wall but sometimes bolted on to keep from tumbling over. It's a clever idea but I've steered away from trying it myself because I suspect that they'll require constant watering and erosion control and also because I'm not convinced that they'll work long term. Almost every image I've found of pallet planters look to be newly planted rather than a tried and tested design. Click here
