Hi Pinecarr

I bought my berry bushes from 2 places. Gurneys and Walmart. The ones from Walmart all lived. 2 of the 4 from Gurneys died. Go figure.

    Lehman’s non-electric

I’d suggest Lehman’s non-electric store for old-fashioned tools and equipment that doesn’t require electricity.

Second that.  I’ve been drooling over their stuff, but it’s pricey.

    The real investment is:

Tools and raw materials. A set of carpentry tools and tools for salvaging materials is much handier.

 E bay, Amazon, local low end junk shops and Antique shops are the places to look. Estate sales and Flea markets come to mind. For every power tool that I use to work on yachts, I have the equivalent hand tool. Broad ax, felling ax, hatchet, adz, crosscut, rip and back saws,. hack saws, chisel set, planes from scrub, jack,fore, jointer, low angle, rabbet, filister, plow and match. a bench with a vice and dogs. for drilling and driving multiple screws I fall back on ratcket braces, corner brace, smiths sway, wimble, square shanked driver bits, counter sinks, augers and holow augers, and expansion bits. Don’t forget hammers, crows, flat bars, drifts, johnson bars, nail sets, cold chisels, files and sledges. Just to round it off I have a small blacksmith shop with twenty years of experience with both tool sets. A library of patterns and old knowledge is necessary. Buy books not software. Old tools are cheaper than new and should last a century or more.

 Gardening tools can be had the same way, You should want pre 1950, things were made to last forever and to be maintained indefinitely.

    bucket deals?

Baytec for food-safe 5 gallon buckets and gamma lids. Best price on the internet. Shipping is a killer, though.

As I work towards building new vendor relationships and arranging the various deals of the week, are there any particular product lines, vendors or categories of resilience building you want me to go after?  Any and all feedback would be appreciated so that we can better meet the needs of the community.  Thanks – Jason
