Welcome to another week’s Monday Musings, where we cover blog updates and interesting stuff we’ve found.
Please resubscribe to get your blog updates! One of our regular readers (thank you Sandy!) mentioned she stopped getting her blog updates after we did our site redesign, and only realized it after our revamped site was mentioned in SurvivalBlog’s Odds ‘n Sods. Since the subscription was done with the previous theme, the switch may have caused a disruption in the subscription updates. If yours no longer works, please take a minute to resubscribe. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Great ideas for apartment gardeners Check out this article over at Backwoods Home Magazine, Start a self-sufficiency garden even in a cramped apartment. Now is the perfect time to get your balcony garden started!
Drip irrigation using an old soda bottle I forgot to water one of my plants for two days and it was close to wilting when I checked it. This is a great idea – punch holes in a recycled soda bottle, plant it in your container garden and fill with water, for slow drip irrigation! Check out Repurpose a Soda Bottle Into a DIY Irrigation System. You know I am going to have to try this.
You don’t need to go to San Francisco to get good sourdough Leon over at Survival Common Sense posted How to Make Your Own Sourdough Starter and followed it up with Dutch Oven Recipe Sourdough Italian herb dinner rolls, his prize winning recipe.

Looking forward to another year Has it been two years already?! I started this blog on April 30th, two years ago. I’ve learned a lot these last couple of years, and readers’ comments and suggestions have been valuable. A few other bloggers I know online have been helpful as well. Though we’ve never met in person we all share a kindred spirit. I am grateful to our sponsors for helping us cover some of the financial costs associated with maintaining this blog. Most of all, my special thanks to our readers for your continued support. Here’s to another year and more to come, of prepping, self sufficiency and camaraderie.
