I'm Cityhomesteader the New Moderator over on the connecticut preppers network forums.
With the ever changing State of the world I decided to get proactive instead of just reading and comment every once in a while. I'm mostly new to prepping and have a lot to learn. Starting at 57 years old and convincing your wife of 29 years that "No honey I have nut gone off my nut!"
We have been trying to build a Homestead in the city for about 13 years this Past Christmas.
Renovating and old 1840's farm house and putting in a huge terraced garden on our south facing slope. We have about .75 of an acre of land over a sandstone ledge, so gardening can be a challenge. I also Forage and wildcraft around the fields and woods of my area, and have been actively a Naturalist for about 50 years. I got interested in wild foods and wildcrafting at the ripe old age of 5 years old when My parents would take us all into the woods foraging grapes, black raspberries, wild strawberries, fish and Game. I never took to hunting, but loved the woods and fields.
My present foraging run is harvesting Balm of Gilead Buds and making herbal salves. infusions, and ointments. Winter is the very best time to harvest the resinous buds of this Poplar tree.
Hope to hear from others on my blog and would love to get together with people that have similar leanings or would like to learn about them. You can contact me at the Connecticut preppers Network via APN
