Been looking at these two but am thinking about the lower priced Presto one:

Amazon.com: Presto 1781 23-Quart Aluminum Pressure Cooker/Canner: Kitchen & Dining

Amazon.com: All American 921 All-American 21-1/2-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner: Kitchen & Dining

Picked up some herbs and tomato plants today. The wife insisted on a strawberry bush. Do they need to be planted in pairs? She only got one.

Fireguy, go ahead and start a new thread and ask about it. I'd like to know too.

Good idea. I looked it up on the web, but didn't find where anyone said that you needed a pair. The blueberrys require at least two to propagate.

Well, I lucked out for my latest prep. My buddy gave me a generator. Yeehaaw!

Well, the orders just came in!

I now have a few hundred feet of paracord, a few hundred more rounds of 9mm and 12ga and a few new magazines. Plus a few 50lb bags of rice on order from the restaruant.

I also found a few hundred wooden strike anywhere matches!


While I'm at it, it seemed awfully hard to find the matches. Does anyone happen to know if strike-anywhere matches are still available in stores in Canada?

I don't know about the matches. They're getting harder to find here.

It sounds like you're moving right along.

I always feel like I'm up against a time crunch. With the way things have been going in this Country, it may be crunch time very soon.
