Imagine, if you will, walking into your own little grocery store and picking out what you would like to fix for dinner, knowing it all came from your backyard! Imagine cutting your grocery food bill in half, maybe more. Imagine the satisfaction you would have in becoming more self sufficient. Imagine the healthy mind change to make that commitment.
I really cannot stand going to the grocery store. The old feeling of being dependent on these stores is enough to make me want to change. But, I want to take it a step farther. I want you to join me in this challenge.
We all have different amounts of land, different types of soil, different climates, but I believe the majority of us can step up to the plate and commit to this challenge no matter how big or small our land is. We can do it!
So who is this challenge for? Any one of you who feels like I do. Who is sick and tired of paying up the ying yang at the grocery store? Who is wanting to eat healthier? Who is wanting to be self sufficient?
Is that you?
We can do this together. I will help you by giving certain assignments each week that will help you plan and do what you have always been dreaming about. And, I will be doing these assignments as well. It takes a lot of planning for something like this. It might seem overwhelming to you, but I will share with you my plans, how much of each vegetable I plan on growing, how I plan to preserve, how to grow, how to know what to grow and much more. Your assignments will follow after I have shown you mine.
Preservation how-to's are a must! Step by step instructions and different options for preserving our harvest will be shown. By the end of the summer, you will be more self sufficient than you ever have been if you take this challenge!
I will also talk about raising our own meat, including how to butcher chickens.
But, it all starts with a different mindset. This has to be a commitment or it will not work. Our way out is too easy. So, who is ready to take the challenge?
