It is the first Wednesday in March so we should be doing a new topic, but I feel like plants got the shrift last month with those 3 missing days, so we are doing the second in a two part series on 8 plants to grow in your yard or on your homestead. Today I will share with you the final four plants.
If you don’t know who the TN GSD crew is, they are a group of friends who sometimes get together at one place or another and help kickstart a project. They’ve done site visits, plans, aquaponics builds, a composting toilet and had lots of fun along the way doing it. So what makes this community different? We will talk about that in today’s show as well as ways you can start developing your own community — or finding one like it.
Today is Friday and a Thought of the Walk day. It has been a long couple of weeks selling random things and seeking to rent my duplex apartment out and this has gotten me to thinking about how technology is changing human behavior. It may seem like i am down on technology – I am not. But I do think we need to be aware of how we come across when we use it so that we are using the technology, not letting it define us.
Introducing Discount Mylar Bags – a provider of food storage solutions, freeze dryers and so much more! They are offering LFTN Members a choice between a 10% discount, or free set of printed bags for any order over $50. You get to choose!
Storing your food in your Prepper Pantry is not always an easy feat. Many of us use basements and closets that sometimes let in more moisture than optimal and the occasional rodent. A great way to story your dry goods is in plastic buckets, but those are not always food grade. Enter mylar bags. They are great for storing not only food, but many other things.
And now we have a great provider for mylar bags as well as a bunch of other food storage and preservation items in the Membership area.
Tobias Johnson has long been in our network in Tennessee and when he found out I was selling coffee, he reached out to me to find out what kind of coffee bags I used at Holler Roast Coffee. Over the next few months, he was able to leverage his contacts to provide a coffee bag that was perfect for my coffee business and a much better deal than my former provider.
And the best part? Lightening fast shipping. I barely finish thinking that I have put the order in when the bags arrive at my door.
Discount Mylar Bags is a great company to support, their pricing is on point, and when you buy from them, you help a small business owner thrive.
We are pleased to partner with Tobias and his family run business. They stand for everything that folks in our network do.
This is a shorter episode where I share something that occurs to me while out on a walk. We focus so much on getting things done around here that sometimes it is easy to forget to make time for your mind to wander and a walk is a great way to do that. Today, I have some thoughts on the great tradeoff of control for other things such as reach, security, money and more. There is a constant pressure between these things and many folks do not assess their choices with this knowledge in hand.
