Prepping is not a destination... it is a journey.

Stocked up on some dry goods lately and reviewed preps for the next 6 months. We stocked up since we have adult kids that can’t see past their noses. I also helped my brother and sister with their preps.

Dehydrated garden peppers: cayenne, jalapeno, and Big Jim - many more to come!
Sliced and froze over a dozen zucchini - still more in the garden.
Mowed lawns - hoping for the last one...
Getting ready to pick, dehydrate, and can (in oil), all my eggplants - Yum!!
Also need to prep to pick, husk, blanch, and freeze the corn crop.
Building up the compost pile from the garden (and chicken coop) - I shred it all first, then put it in the first of 3 bins...
Today, grocery shopping and new pairs of muck boots for both of us - they sure don't last long! However, we buy cheap ones...

Last week I posted in here about rolling foodouts,
saw another perfect example of it over the last few days that makes me strongly believe that is what is happening.
At the BJ's club yesterday there was no TP at all, no brands, rice was at a minimum, half a pallet.
Some DelMonte canned peas were there, they were gone for a month or two, no green beans were there, none for last 6 months.
Canned hams went in Feb. have not returned, Random corned beef and Spam have shown up and gone within the week I visit the club.
There are other food items that show every so often but never on the shelves long.
Is there a shortage or is everyone still hoarding it or both????
I go online to buy gun parts for fighting rifles, everyplace is sold out of top grade stuff.
The sellers are raping people on ammo sales, I cannot believe the prices they are charging.
Looked at reflector sights, all the better ones were sold out.
A STORM IS COMING AND I AM AFRAID IT WILL BE SOON.
not back to normal, tho. Now the last two weekly shopping trips have been pretty iffy. After Wednesday's
trip, I made the pilgrimage to a few other named stores to see what I could find. Not that great a selection
to be found. Picked up what I could find and even tho I didn't go hog wild, only grabbed 3 of the things I
needed, the clerk at the register have me dirty looks like I was doing something wrong. The one thing that
surprised me was the shortage on meaty soups. I prefer Progresso due to the size, just right for the 2 of us,
but had to settle Cambells. I haven't seen Spam in months. Not sure if I'm just missing the day they
restock or ??? Not worried about ammo, in fact I got 1250 rounds of .30 cal Carbine I want to sell off (sorry,
only local people). Got a line on a LEO aquaintance who wants some.
I really want one of these!Hidden Content
Sealing jelly/jams with wax, was to pour the hot wax right onto the top of the jelly to about 1/4 inch thick of wax, no lids needed....not sure if that would work on stuff with floaties, like veggies in water.
Doesn't Makers Mark have a cork, that the wax covers? Maybe if you used corks in your jars, it might work??? Canning lids sit on top of the jar rim vs corks set inside the rim.....but I don't know if that would make a difference.
I'd be too leery of doing myself, but you could always try it on a couple of jars to see if it would work.
Vacum sealed the last of the jalapeños from the garden today and stripped everything out of the beds. Tomorrow I plant some clover that hopefully has just enough time to get going before a real hard freeze comes. Also built a new handgun range backstop with railroad timbers that I acquired after talking to one of the crew working on the tracks up the road from me. Great guys, I gave them each a small bag of apples and they said to take whatever I want of the old timbers they were tearing out. Works well for me....
