Comment survivre sans Frigo?

Cette réflexion, pleine de bon sens, ne manque pas d’arguments: qui sait que la tomate (en bon fruit qui se respecte) ne supporte pas le froid? Qu’on ne mélange pas la laitue avec les clémentines du marché, sous peine de les les voir s’asphyxier d’éthylène et de pourrir prématurément?

A Plan for Food Self-Sufficiency - Modern Homesteading

Providing high-quality food for your family year-round takes foresight and planning, plus healthy doses of commitment and follow-through.

Make a list of the foods you and your family eat now — and note the quantities as well. Decide what you’d like to grow, noting the foods your family prefers and recognizing that not every crop will grow in every climate.

Bump keys can lead to home break-ins. How to avoid break-ins at your home Last reviewed: June 2011 Web videos that demonstrate how to make a "bump key" are especially unnerving because unlike so much other sketchy content online, these tutorials are real.

Bump keys can lead to home break-ins

These instructional pieces typically reveal that any key "when properly used, will open any lock that it fits into," as boasts one Web instructor. A bump key is made by taking a key that already fits into a particular brand of lock and filing it down. But turning a blank key into a bump key isn't as simple as it looks in those Web videos.

Urban Homesteading, or, Old MacDonald had a backyard farm…

Relearning methods for growing and canning produce, managing gray water, and raising chickens are just a few of the areas addressed in the urban homestead movement. Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library has many resources to help you decide if backyard homesteading is for you. The library subscribes to several magazines such as Mother Earth News, Grit, and Natural Home & Garden that are wonderful resources for developing self-sufficiency in an urban setting. They provide good advice on canning methods, choosing chicken breeds, building structures such as coops and greenhouses, and renewing and reusing instead of discarding. If you are thinking about keeping domestic fowl or livestock, the first step is to check the city ordinances for your community.
