Another notch on my writing belt!

I have had the honor of being asked to be a regular writer on the Mother Earth News website, for their section on food preservation. Here is my first post, and new ones coming every-other week:

I'll still be making posts here on this blog as well, on subjects not only relating to food preservation but all aspects of food storage and prepping, as well as gardening and homesteading.  My aim is still toward the more frugal aspect of these things, since many of us are at least somewhat financially-challenged! 

Sometimes there will be links back and forth, such as a link to the "Chicken Enchiladas from food storage" post from the upcoming post for Mother Earth News on canning chicken.  And I will go back and insert a link to the "Canning Chicken" post on Mother Earth News from the Chicken Enchilada post. 

Thank you, and please keep enjoying this site!  Please leave comments or questions below, or email them to:



  1. Congratulations. I read your blog regularly and have one of your books. It seems to me you are in Montana? If so, it's a difficult climate, even with modern conveniences. You're doing a great job and we are benefitting from it. Stay well and keep writing. Thanks so much for all you do.

  2. Congrats. I love MEN. It is such a honor bestowed on you and I must say well earned.

    1. Thank you! It's an honor. Mother Earth News is the original homesteader and self-sufficiency magazine, and I'm pleased to be part of them now! :)
