What I Did to Prep This Week – Week 30 -Feb 3rd – Feb 9th 2019

Hello Pack. Hope you all are doing well and got a chance to read the piece I wrote for Dan last week that took a political view of prepping.

Our winter hardy dwarf banana plants are doing well. We also got some of our garden seeds started in preparation for the coming planting season. I am beyond excited about our gardening smarter not harder plan for this year – and beyond.
