Winter Prep

Over the past few years, I have become increasingly interested in self sufficiency.  I was raised in a hunting/fishing family.  My mom even kept a garden for some time.  The thought of being able to provide for yourself in such a way gives me a sense of pride.  The past two yers my garden has failed.  I blame it on three things, the kiler summer sun, the excessive heat, and the drought of 2012.  It is December, and I am in full planning and preppuing mode for my garden next year.  I have moved my garden from a spot that gets full sun all day, to a spot that gets full sun until about noon, then the shade blocks out a little of the sun for a few hours.  I have also expanded my plot.  I also plan on using a green house cover to help expand my growing season.

Does self sufficiency interest your family?  What are some ways you help to provide for yourself?
