Life on a little urban homestead in the making, with ideas for self-sufficiency, food preservation, thrifting,
cookery, organic gardening, crafts, DIYing, vintage stuff, and more...

Updated Independence Day List



Updated Independence Day List- After reading this list  Fullfreezer.blogspot.com  I re-worked mine a bit. It makes a bit more sense to me, although some overlap a bit:

1. Plant Something
2. Harvest Something

3. Preserve Something
4. Store Something
5. Manage Reserves- Get A Good Deal/Barter/Stock Up/Prep
6. Eat the Food- Try New Foods/Recipes
7. Build Community Food Systems
8. Recycle/Re-Use
9. Skill Up
10. Regenerate What is Lost/Salvage Something

It's a bit confusing, but that's okay. For instance- you can recycle food, just throw the scraps to the chickens! You've covered #5 and #8 at the same time. Whoop whoop.

Dave and I are thinking about modifying the coop in the spring with a "green" roof something like this-         

    
                     
I'd love to grow some strawberries on top! Would keep the coop cooler in the heat and warmer in the winter. That would cover several things on the list too!

Here was my original list: Independence Days
