I was reading an opt Ed and it got me thinking. Pretty much, the premise was that people who participate in Emergency Preparedness are often times ostracized for doing so and they surmised the reasoning as due to a hatred against self sufficiency. It was an interesting thought to ponder. I personally believe in preparedness and I am not a "doomsday" prepper. I just believe that we never know if a natural disasters, a job loss, or something more could ever happen and having some things on hand to decrease worry is not a bad thing. I also believe that major crafting skills should not be lost to the ages as there could be a need for them later(sewing, canning, gardening, etc.). Yet, I do see that people will call others names for believing in self sufficiency. Why is that? Why do people think it strange to do things yourself? Are we really to a point where people literally think that the store just always will have food no matter what? Have they not seen what happened during various natural disasters? These things are even recent where there is no food or items on shelves. Not like the people who lived during the depression realized that would happen to them well in advanced. So it is interesting to see that people ridicule those who want to be prepped.

Got in my free sample of this supposedly easy access nutrient fertilizer that is supposed to make my plants grow super awesome. Put it on my smallest rose bushes. Took some before pictures too. Will see if it lives up to the claim.
