Are you asking me? If so, I have quite a lot of military rations bought in surplus’s online. I’ve been experimenting with pickling, bottling for a few years now. I haven’t got Ill  yet off of what I’ve made. Have quite a prosperous garden so far this year.I am learning the old ways of storage for my veg so as to ease the space problems. Half my house looks like a supermarket.

 

Biggest issue for me is flour for the long term.

 

White flour stores the longest. There is something in wholemeal flour, or wholemeal anything, that makes it rot quicker. I'm not sure if you know or not, but the white flour's shelf life is improved by storing it firstly in an airtight glass jar, but also by placing a silica gel packet in the jar with it. This absorbs moisture, so reduced the growth of bacteria.

Thanks for the info. Didn’t know about the storage

As predicted, cooking oil supplies are being reduced. Due to the "war in Yew-krane".

 

Quite why whatever's going on there affects the manufacture of cooking oils in the UK is a wonder, but here we go.

 

It's bad for your heart and arteries anyway, use animal fat instead as your body has been processing it for millions of years and knows what to do with it. 

 

A block of beef drip is 75p and i've heard you can preserve it using those canning jars. Bloody good for making roast potatoes as well.

Great to see Max Igan talking to Dave Cullen about the deliberate food shortages, which will affect all of

us especially the third world. Jewish Bolshevism used this tool to starve millions of people, which they discuss.

I agree with you on max. Some don’t trust him so much I know. Probably the nature of how us people think! He comes across as honest and well intended in his discussions.

Will watch later. Not enough hours in the day😀

Should rename this thread "Engineered food crisis" in my opinion 

Totally agree. Even though I’m stocked up fairly well. It’s difficult to know how much and how long for. I only have finite space and cash. My place is looking like a cash n carry

As I am sure most of you will know, there have been predictions in the global truth community that there are food shortages ahead. David Icke, Vernon Coleman and Max Igan have all spoken about this.

 

However, I have just been watching one of Max Igan's old videos, from July, and he reckons that entrance to supermarkets will eventually be conditional as regards to whether someone has been vaccinated or not.

 

Needless to say, this wasn't a very appealing thought. I have been prepping, but with the best will in the world, only live in a small property and only have so much room. It would run out eventually. I have nowhere to build a greenhouse or plant my own food. 

 

Anyone have any insights to share on this? I am adamant I don't want vaccinated. My reasons are numerous. But obviously I don't want to starve. Is this an overzealous prediction?

Horrible sometimes being right or aware of what’s going on. I know you posted this two years ago but it’s all coming true.

 

As to the size of your property. If you have any space at all outside going vertical is a good solution. If haven’t checked it out, you would be amazed what some prepped can get in a couple of square metres

Watch out for fires and cyber attacks and other unfortunate incidents at very old and well established food processing plants and farms. Where they have decades long livestock and processes. These are the targets for these anti-progress zealots in the coming months/years.

I'm trying to grow my own food in a raised bed and some flower beds. It's not easy.

 

I have limited space and not much has started growing outside yet. 

 

Some radishes, carrots beetroot and artichokes are starting. I have a couple of fruit trees, tomatoes and chili's indoors, and some beans and peas started too. Also done perennial kale plants.

 

It's going to be a struggle to feed the family at this rate!

Have a look into vertical veg growing. Its a great way with a smaller space. Some really ingenious vids on YouTube. Even old drain pipe, filled with soil and fixed upright with smallish holes at regular distances is great. With a 2 metre pipe I cam grow about 18 - 20 lettuce. plus once established disguises the pipe so as not look ugly. All leafy the veg, that I've tried so far do well in these. on this basis you could get about 9- 16 pipes per metre squared. that's a lot of veg

30 litre containers, 2 potatoes planted in each =  2lbs +  per container. I've got 5 in already just waiting on a compost delivery. 

 

Cherry tomatoes go well in hanging baskets, make sure you got netting for those brassicas as the cabbage moth will come for a visit.

I haven't bothered with potatoes.

 

I already buy mine from a local farm. They cost me a fiver for a 25kg sack, still have the dirt on them. They keep really well in the shed and last ages. They generally have them all year around, but I guess that might change if there are shortages.

That’s the difficulty in food prep imo. As we don’t know exactly how fast things potentially become dire, it’s difficult to plan.

finances, space and patience are all ok if you have them.

I also have a lot of local sources for fresh produce. If things go pear shaped there will queues even there. I’ve built up good relationships with local producers but might mean nothing when it matters. Only time will tell

Definitely.

 

My thinking is, if potatoes suddenly become short on supply, I have a sack in the shed that I could last several months on.

 

Most people will generally have a few in from the supermarket that really don't last long as they are washed and clean.

 

If things start drying up I can easily grab another sack. A lot of people living in cities don't even realise this sort of luxury!

 

I am stashing a few tins a week now. Canned veg, soup, fish. Plus dried beans and pulses.

I’ve got a lot saved as re other posts. My lady thought I was nuts for a long time. Think now she’s glad I am

Snap 😂

 

I stashed around 100 tins in lockdown 2. Started using a few here and there but barely dented the stash. I'm starting to stash things again. Not panic buying level, just a few bits weekly. I think it will pay off.

You can thank zArk for putting me on to this guy. Fascinating channel so far.
 


Magnetism yet again! But even static fields of magnetism, each "pole" has a different effect on things. Polarity is key even in static magnetic fields!

I found the books in PDF:
