Soil Testing Kit - Recommendations

Brand new to the group. During the past couple of months I have watched and read The Crash Course. And read Prosper.

I want to, at least on a very small scale, try to grow some of our own food. I want to start by testing my soil.

Can anyone recommend and relatively inexpensive, relatively easy to use, soil testing kit?

Empty Shelves after recent snow...

After the minor recent snow and seeing the effect on our fragile food supply system got me thinking, wonder if anyone wanted to share any tips for food storage and preps?

How about some recommendations for good UK companies for long term supplies?

Top tips for long term storage?

Next Gathering

It was great having everyone together last week. Lets do it again.

I am off to ride horses across utah.  I hope you guys get together next month whether I am here or not.  But I would love to hold another gathering in August when I;m back.  I should be around by August 1st and would be willing to host again.  But I may have limited access to the outside world for the next several weeks so I can't be sure I can plan with you.  

Hoping to see you all soon.

There was no lettuce

I went to the supermarket (Aldi, if you must know) and there was no lettuce. No lettuce! Now it might be that they had cases more in the back, but I am guessing that will not be the reason some time very soon. Or if there is lettuce it will sharply more expensive. Why? The drought in California.

Hard Work Up In Vermont/Rewarding Experiences

Hi folks,

While these days of prepping, or the long months and years of having hints about a grim future can sometime get us down, I just wanted to share the experience I had yesterday and how rewarding it was.  I am of a mind that society can and will recover from collapse and many things built today can be reworked, in a more positive way, in the future.  Hard work today doesn't have to mean it will be harder in the future.
