Fall Gardening Tips

August is here and though the heat may be blazing, Autumn is just around the corner. But that doesn't mean your gardening activities must come to a halt. Here are some tips to keep you busy over the next few months:

Grow a Fall Garden. In many places across the country, mid-August through mid-September is the time to plant your Fall Garden. Crops to consider for the Fall include lettuce, cabbage, kohlrabi, turnip greens, mustard greens, spinach, kale, and radishes.

Emergency Food Storage (Book Review)

Over the last couple of years, I've been reading every book I can get my hands on that may help me prepare for the very difficult times that lie ahead - survivalist handbooks, homesteading tomes, books offering everything from financial advice to old-time country skills. The book I am discussing in this review fits the category of a "prepping" guide, and is the best in that category that I have found to date.

Review: Gerber Prodigy Survival Knife

Several months ago, I purchased the Gerber Prodigy Survival Knife from (regular price $82, but I got it on sale). This is a survival/tactical knife based on the well-proven LMF II Infantry knife design (really, it is just a scaled down version of that design).

Review: Cold Steel Bushman Survival Knife

I purchased the Cold Steel Bushman from (regular price $35, but I got it on sale for less) for a survival knife based on several reviews & demonstrations of it on You Tube. However, actually holding the knife in hand leaves me even more impressed than watching the videos. As a rural/backwoods fixed blade survival knife, I give the Bushman five out of five stars.
