100% Homegrown

In the pursuit of providing a self sufficient lifestyle in these troubled times, we have so many options that we don’t think we are capable of, but are really quite easy if you take one step at a time.

I always thought gardening started on my last freeze date in May, but I have come to learn that if I prepare a little in the fall, and even through the winter, we can eat out of our garden, cold frames and small greenhouse year round providing enough nutritious, organically grown food for three or more families depending on the time of year.

One thing I do is till and prepare a couple of rows for planting in the fall, then I cover the bed with grass clippings and leave it till spring.

The beauty of these beds is that if we have a really wet spring, where it is too muddy to get in and walk or dig, I can still hand trowel a little hole and put in lettuce and spinach starts and peas. All of which love cool wet weather.

I have greens in a month, even when there is still snow coming every once in a while.

The Ready Store Spring Sale

April 7, 2010 4:09 pm | No Comments


Here is another resource that my daughter sent from the Pittsburgh Colony.  Heads up all you ready ants and take a look at this.


The Ready Store offers little-bit-by-little-bit or lots-and-lots.
Free shipping over $100 purchase.

It’s worth looking at!

We had a ‘Ready Ant’ call in from New Mexico today asking about the group buy on the water barrels.  Unfortunately, this is only a local group buy, but anyone can set up their own group buy in their own area just like we did.


Call around to the various stores in your area that might offer the barrels to the public.  Strike a deal with them using the information on this site as your leverage on prices.  If you pick them up (rather than have them shipped) you should be able to work the same deal where ever you live.  It just takes a leader to gather in the wares for the many.

Good luck and bless you for your willingness to help others.  You’re a good “Ready Ant!”  Welcome to Ant Hill #6!
