I am passionate about gardening and becoming more self-reliant. Let me start by telling you a little bit about me, so you can better see from my perspective on things. I grew up in the city with out much green space and everything we ate, just about every thing we ate was bought at the store and processed. That was fine with me at the time because I did not know any better. I went to college and became a licensed Veterinary Technician and worked in that field for twenty years. One thing working with animals taught me was that animals well being is directly related to there diet. In fact most prescription dog and cat foods could resolve issues those animals were having, from urinary blockages, obesity and even diabetes. Even though we all learn about nutrition in school and eating a proper diet it never really clicked until I saw the proven results in my animal patients. During that time frame I had my son who I wanted to give the best possible food, so he would grow up healthy and strong.Like most good parents we want our children to get farther than we had in our early years. So I started doing some studying on growing our own food and what was needed live a healthy lifestyle. What I discovered was that the foods I enjoyed the most were not good for me or my family. I had to say good bye to ho ho's.
The decline in the economy is another important topic that I care a great deal about. When food is grown at home and we eat more homemade foods our expenses go down significantly. I will be including a few easy to prepare every day foods under the recipe section and I will also have a large number of recipes in my book. Many foods can be made in larger quantities and frozen for later use. Preserving our harvest from the garden is also important, because when you can the foods at home you can be comforted that no preservatives are added and only the freshest fruits are used.
