Survival Gardening
And a Way to Relax and De-Stress Survival gardening can be fun, relaxing and actually quite simple… Many people seem to think they don’t have enough space for a garden but the areas where you can learn how to grow a basic vegetable garden are endless. Yep, I am talking about those spaces we try to fill in with all kinds of flowers, shrubs, and even in some cases, gravel, so that it looks nice…. :) Plant your veggies there. Along Side Your House The area alongside the house is perfect for plants as it is protected from many things, such as: Frost, will stay frost-free longer in the fallcritters, we have to protect everything we grow here in Montana from hungry deerhail, heavy rains, strong wind… plus the plants seem to grow faster and I think it may be because heat is magnified. You may want to use non-hybrid seeds to do gardening as you will be able to harvest your own seeds for the following year this way.

Survival Gardening: Part 2 Survival Cache The answer to everyone’s question is “No”, we are not too late to get started on our Survival Garden for this year, not for most of the population living in the United States and Canada.

wellnessmama I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time and finally had the time while the kids are napping and I am (ironically) sipping a Chia Seed Energy Drink (recipe below).

Almost… they do get stuck in your teeth if you chew them plain (ask me how I know that!). They also give you tons of energy but also won’t keep you awake at night and are supposed to be great for weight loss.

I recently stumbled upon a book (All New Square Foot Gardening: Grow More in Less Space! Stars of Color: Blacklisted! The Hollywood blacklist—as the broader entertainment industry blacklist is generally known—was the mid-20th-century practice of denying employment to screenwriters, actors, directors, musicians, and other U.S. entertainment professionals because of their suspected political beliefs or associations. Artists were barred from work on the basis of their alleged membership in or sympathy with the American Communist Party, involvement in progressive political causes that enforcers of the blacklist associated with communism, and refusal to assist investigations into Communist Party activities. Even during the period of its strictest enforcement, the late 1940s through the late 1950s, the blacklist was rarely made explicit and verifiable, but it caused direct damage to the careers of scores of American artists, often made betrayal of friendship (not to mention principle) the price for a livelihood, and promoted ideological censorship across the entire industry.
