So what you all going to do?

Do you want to talk about your beautiful country, family, or dog? Would you like to say where you went on holiday or how you arranged the garden? Are you willing to tell us you girlfriend left you for a(nother) loser? Do you have ANY non knife-related topic you want to discuss? This is the place!

The powers that be don't want it to end. Too much money to be made yet.

"The powers that be ?" . . . .
Although I believe "it's never gonna end". . .
I think it's more because once a virus becomes pandemic,
all the 3rd world countries are now incubators for variants. . . .

I don't think any pharmacutical (spelling?) company is culturing diseases to sell manufactured cures.
There's enough real disease for business for a long long time.

Fauci and his buddys in pharma developed this shit in their gain of fuction research in Wuhan. And the American people helped pay for it. Now the bastard and his cronies are running the asylem.
I will believe that till the day I die.

The facts are out there. All you have to do is look and shut off CNN/MSN bullshit propaganda.

Proud to say I put up about 100 plus pounds of potatoes this week and a bunch of other food. Wake up folks, Hard dark times are coming.

We had mostly peppers, which we seeded, cut up and froze. . .
We have about a dozen nice sized Butternut Squash (hard shell, will keep unrefrigerated at least 3 months.)
there are still at least 20 still on the vine, but smaller. . ., they are winter squash and will keep on the vine right up until snow.

Grapes really sucked this year, red rust attacked them, we didn't spray.
a groundhog ate my spice garden, all the parsley and chives were GONE one morning.
Our garlic and onions are doing great, still in the ground.
Tomatoes are done, no more this year.

We used to buy tomatoes by the bushel, and would can about 300 glass quarts.
But we're old, can't lift or walk or peel. . . so we just buy metal canned tomatoes now.

Last year we had giant Turnips . .my brother holding one. . .
We didn't dig them up this year ( yet ) . . . . . but the greens look pretty good. . .

My garden didn't do too well this year. Some was weather and some was laziness and not doing some things different.

The only reason I have so many potatoes is because the huge field across the road was planted in spuds. The picker misses alot when they harvest. They have to dump piles of spud sized rocks into piles every so many rows to clean it out. The rock plies are about half potatoes. They don't care if I go over and get the drops. In a short time, and a little sweat, I can pick up a shit load. You just need to get them before the sun/rain makes them turn green and rot.

I know potatoes are pretty cheap. Most wouldn't bother, but I try to save money when I can.

Some might call us preppers but in reality in a shtf situation we wouldn't last long. No bunker or place to hide for very long. The wife and I couldn't defend our little place on a semi busy road more than 5 minutes if we had to. Still, we try to be as self sufficient as we are able.

My Mom, still alive at age 96, recalls living in the great depression.
Her Father was killed in a coal mine in 1928, before insurance, before compensation.
When he died, her two brothers could not work in the mine anymore at age 12 and 14.
You had to be with your father as a sponsor until age 16.

Mom is an expert at gardening, canning meats and veggies, stretching a budget.
Cattail fluff bread, cattail roots, we eat fried dandelion greens and breaded and fried dandelion flowers.
My brothers daughter , age 44, is an expert at picking wild mushrooms and wild ramps and edible ferns
