Been busy

Sorry for the lack of posting. Simply been busy with the gardening, bees, daughters, wife, and all that life has to offer. Still focused on preps however. Found 25 pounds of bread flour for $7 and some change at Sams Club. 5 pounds is 4 bucks at the local grocery store. Saving my wheat for when TSHTF. Still, with the news that the harvests might be in trouble due to weather, floods, freezing, etc. might be advisable to buy some from your local feed store soon. Here in this part of NC, the wheat seems to be doing well. Harvesting will be fairly soon. Go buy several sacks of the cheaper feed grade stuff. Verify with the dealer it is fit for human consumption. The only difference (other than price) is the feed type is only cleaned twice, and the human is cleaned 3 times. I can do it myself in small daily batches and get more wheat for the same price. Go to your local wally world and look in the paint section. You want the white 5 gallon buckets with lids. If not available, stop by a local fast food place (dunkin doughtnuts, wendys, etc) and get a few freebiesWash the buckets in hot soapy water and rinse.Take the wheat and freeze it for 24-48 hours in the sack you bought it in. Pour it in the buckets, and take a 2 x 4 and a mallet and pack the lid down tight to keep the bugs out. Next wrap duct tape around the top of the bucket covering the seam completely. Write the date and contents on the top of the bucket, and store somewhere you can keep out of the way. Put up 400 pounds per adult. At least. This is cheap and easy to do. Do it now. Time is running out. This is the calm before the storm. Ask yourself, is it getting better or worse? Is the economy getting better? Is your job completely safe? Your family okay? Is your health good? Are you prepared? I will be posting more regularly with preps as i do them. I am sure there are better sources than me, but I can maybe spark some ideas. Please get ready. Mentally, physically, and spiritually.
