Store or Starve: A beginnerís guide to food storage
nationalexpositor.com ^ | 1/21/10 | Ron Shirtz

Posted on 02/10/2010 7:29:27 PM PST by Kartographer

I want people to store food not only for their sake, but for mine as well. I don’t want to decide which of my kids have to go hungry when you and your unprepared kin come knocking on my door. Contrary to progressive-collectivist thinking, every individual who takes care of themselves and their families benefits society by not becoming a burden. So take responsibility now and start today. Don’t expect the Feds to come by to hand you your ration of government-rationed cheese. You could be in for a long wait. Wait too long, and you may end up with a green-stained mouth from eating grass, like the poor Irish during the potato famine in the mid 1800’s. Or seriously reevaluate your aversion to cannibalism. Compared to those desperate methods, dumpster diving comes off as luxury cuisine.

I posted this about a month ago but like the author I too want to see people start taking this seriously, though I am sure I will get a number of 'OH NOES' replies. Things are dark and getting darker so you need to decide if you plan to take care of yourself and your family or stand in line an wait for some 'guberment' stooge to decide if you eat and how much.

“In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but the foolish man devours all he has.”
Proverbs 21:20

“Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest"
Proverbs 6:6-8

"A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences."
Proverbs 27:12

We’ve been discussing food storage in my house. This is a good way to start. Thanks.

If nothing else, if the inflation begins that some people think, food is a good investment.

I’m not worried. I got six cats. They’ll tide me over for a month.

when you can goods, you might want to think about melting wax to seal the lid to the jar, basically ensuring no oxygen gets to the foodstuff. imho.

A small greenhouse is in our plan for the next five years.
We’re looking at “starter plants” as our target.
