Important Update regarding this weekly post:

While the comments for this article have been open to “any topic”, the intention was (and is) as it relates to “What did you do for your preparedness this week?”.

As such, let’s do our best to stay on topic with the previous sentence.

Many regulars here are using this as a sort of weekly support group for a variety of personal and non-preparedness issues, which sometimes derails the intended value or purpose.

That purpose is to be a repository of general or specific preparedness related information as it pertains to our own actions, experiences, opinions, or questions for others. This is more appealing, valuable, and interesting to a braoder group of readers who are looking for what others have done for their own preparedness and to possibly compare, relate, or learn from that.

 
-I hilled my potatoes again. That’s some hot sweaty work. This year I have 100-feet of potatoes and I’m anxious to find out how the harvest will be later this summer. They have thrived well this year, probably due to the higher amount of rain we have received this spring and summer. No need to water the garden by irrigation methods this year (so far).

-Spending some time on the excavator moving out a particular section of rock wall, making for better access to the barn we’re building from the house.

-Completed the lumber order list for the barn, submitted for quote, accepted the quote.

-The neighboring properties and fields have all been hayed and baled recently. Prepping for the winter months (don’t want to think about the cold weather yet!) My own fields aren’t suited well enough for good haying, but they do need to be brush hogged soon.

 
Okay, so what have you been up to this week?
