it was amazing

I'm really not sure I'll ever get into the whole canning thing, but there are probably some useful tricks I'll glean from this book. Definitely more inspired than ever to get some rain barrels so we always have a source of water.
There is a great list of helpful, easy to grow plants that will basically grow in every garden with minimal effort. I am determined to grow each of these and learn how to use them. I also like the idea that if we each grew our own herbs for tea, we could each effectively remove one small truck from the road.
I almost didn't read this because of the title being kind of fear-based, but the book really wans't like that. There is a lot of useful info about food storage, growing plants, and even medicinal plants (which I thought was an area I just wasn't interested in broaching, but she makes it sound so simple and easy, I am definitely going to try!)
