That certainly shows the weakness of "just in time" delivery strategies. But as has been stated if every household gradually builds up a stock of essentials those stocked pantries will serve as the countries warehouses. Which is great until all the food that we buy in from abroad stops ge...

Keeping deer out of gardens and food plots is an annual problem. My most successful defense is a double offset electric fence topped with 30 lb test monofilament fish line on the outside line of fence. The deer touch the line in the dark when they can't see it and it is strong enough to give them a...

From the Telegraph: "Agencies recruiting British fruit and vegetable pickers to replace seasonal workers from abroad have been overwhelmed by thousands of applications." Brilliant! In a previous life I operated a cut flower nursery growing open field. When it came to picking time it was s...
