Harvest 2009

I have elected to remove the 2009 harvest list from the side bar. I apologize for feeling the need for doing this. As the economy worsens there are now new things to be cautious about and one of those is having your home broken into and all your food stolen. I have observed several reports coming in from around the country from homesteaders that have experienced this very thing. Nothing else stolen, just the food (all of it). I think that it is no longer prudent or wise to publish what my food stores might possibly look like on the internet. I simply cannot abide thievery! It makes me so angry. Should someone knock on my door or stop in my driveway and tell me that they are hungry, I would gladly share what I have. I cannot stand for someone to think that they are entitled to it simply because it is there, though. So understand that this is happening across the country. It may not be happening often in the grand scheme of things, but as the dollar continues its downward spiral and increasing numbers of people become hungry for whatever reason this will become more common. May God bless you all!

I hear you! We deliberately don't discuss our back-stocked items for just this reason. Not only are we worried about thievery, but we have worked very hard for what we have. Many acquaintances we know laughed at us originally, but now are falling on hard times. They would just assume they an come use our stock. Though we are in no means of wanting to not share with those who are less fortunate, not working hard because you feel you can just use someone elses makes me so frustrated.
