The Old School has been on hiatus for a long time, but the Damsel would like to poke her head in and say she misses her students. She hopes you are all doing well.
Things are going well at the Cottage by the Mountains too. Bulbs are coming up. Chickens are clucking. Life is good.
She recently came across a book she’d like you to know about. Store This, Not That, by Crystal Godfrey and Debbie Kent. The Damsel has seen many a food storage book in her day, and this one is a great addition to the pile.
It’s colorful, well organized, and best of all, makes the goal of attaining a food storage seem doable. The Damsel especially appreciates that it follows her own philosophy for food storage: put in some life-saving basics, such as wheat, sugar, oil, salt, and beans to form a base, and then build from there with the non-perishables you already eat and enjoy.
It’s basic but that’s by design. It’s great for people setting up storage for the first time or as a refresher on how to update what you have.
