Hey all, it’s Angela here, interrupting the heat and light series to let you all know that my Adventures in Self Reliance blog has moved to a new location at Food Storage and Survival. And I’ve got some great giveaways going until Feb 14th, so make sure you check out the giveaway post while you’re there. Thanks! That is all. Back to your regularly scheduled posts. :)
Recently I had a small message in my inbox that came in via the contact form here on the blog. It was somebody named Alex mentioning that he had a blog we might be interested in. A quick check showed that he was right, VegeNag is a blog about vegetable gardening in Utah. I know I’m always looking for all the help I can get, so it’s nice to have somebody that can give advice that is local and knowledgeable about our specific soil conditions and other factors.
He is adding on quite a few useful articles on things he is doing to help plants grow around here, and has many useful links directly to useful locations such as the Utah State Extensions which provide very useful on agriculture, horticulture, insects, in short everything you might need to know about growing anything in your own county.
It looks like in the future he is planning on expanding his blog to also give alerts for when you need to take certain actions in your garden according to our climate. And if we’ve learned anything this spring, it’s that a little help in knowing the real planting/safe dates can really help (I still can’t believe I got snow again today!)
In an effort to help recognize some of the great preparedness bloggers out there, and help people find some of the other great resources on the web, I’d love to introduce folks to a blogger I’ve been reading for a while now. Riverwalker maintains a couple of blogs himself, the Stealth Survival, and Riverwalker’s Survival Gear.
Riverwalker has a great way of presenting very useful information in an appealing, direct manner. He’s also been great at helping other preparedness bloggers get their start, and get connected to other folks. Please take some time and read up on what he’s already published. A lot of nice, simple, to the point posts that will go far in helping anyone be ready for any kind of emergency.
A few recent topics of interest from his blogs:
