New Book

I have a lot of ideas for things to post to this blog but we've been so busy with the garden and other things that I'm too weary to organize my thoughts when I get on the computer!  We're almost caught up, having weeded and mulched most of the garden now.  The weather has dried out, so it shouldn't need as much attention for things like weeding and hoeing.

Meanwhile, the emails, reviews, and comments keep coming in, and I appreciate the feedback, and the questions and suggestions!

In fact, I think there's enough material to start on another book, something like... "Poverty Prepping II", and some kind of subtitle such as "More!" or "What comes next".  Any ideas?  If someone comes up with a good catchy subtitle I'll mention you in the credits!

I'll be using some of the material from this blog, most of which was written after people asked questions.  If anyone has a subject they'd like me to cover in the next book, please let me know.  If you want me to include something you've written or would like to write, your name can be on it. 

I think of it as "our" book, so any input is welcome.  You can either leave a comment on here, or email me at:

Comment received from "Anonymous" on Thursday, September 6, 2012:
"The women in my extended family regularly trade pantry stuff such as things we tried and didn't like or bought too much of or just tired of, I usually store these for emergencies. I also gather lots of wild edibles but even simple ones like dandelion and lamb's quarters can be gathered for free and frozen canned or dried for hard times nutrition. I look under the tables at farmer's market for produce that has spots, is a little too ripe or bulk, they are often a great deal. Old white T shirts I cut into strips for bandages."

Thank you for your comment.  This is good information and I appreciate your taking the time to share it with us!  Susan
