Food and Water

SEPT 2010
So I wanted to to make use off some sardine cans and found them to be a great size and use for growing spouts.
I filled the container with cotton wool soaked with water, then added the seeds, I used Cress and Mustard sprouts.
Make sure you plant mustard seeds 4 days latter than cress to have them harvest at same time.
cover with a damp napkin and place in a sunny window ledge.
now if you repeat about every 4 days you will have a constant fresh spouting Cress and Mustard sprouts or what other sprouts you choose.
Also have a look at The-urban-survivalist for some great tips and Dan does a great daily video with good tips so go check him out at The Urbivalist
enjoy.
Items needed, 1 sardine can, Cotton wool, Napkin and seeds.

Sprouts after 4 days

Cover with moist napkin until sprouts have started sprouting

Sprinkle seeds on moist cotton wool in the can

I purchased a Dehydrator, have wanted one for ages, as after reading up i think its a more preferred way to store dried food.
I was most interested in drying corn, carrots and strawberries which I loaded up on my 5 trays.
It went all night a total of 12 hours and its amazing how small it looks after its dried, the best of it is that all the nutrients are still there .
After drying some stuff I couldn't wait to try it, The Strawberries are like leathery to taste but flavor is awesome.
next a bowl of soup dropped the peas and carrots back into it and after about 3 mins you have perfectly good tasting veg,
Will be adding to my stored items with this new found skill, its a must have, smaller more compact packets and no additives.
Oh I forgot to mention I also got a vaccume sealer and bags to pack and store the things i dry.
Great resource for Dehydrating http://www.dehydrate2store.com/
and of course I got the Dehydrator and the vaccume sealer from my favorite place ebay.com

Water Storage is probably the most important item in your survival preps!
without food we could survive up to 3 weeks, without water we can only survive 3 days!

Why would we need to store water ?
well a natural disaster could break water pipes, or a contamination at water source, or even a pandemic where we were told to stay indoors and self quarantine.
In any of these events the stores would be crazy and empty supplies in hours, plus the last place you want to be is putting yourself in danger around desperate people.
thats why you need to keep an emergency supply of water.

How much do we need ?
The recommended amount is 8 glasses of water each per day, also we do get a considerable amount of fluids from food and other drinks, this all counts.
So on average it is recommended that you will need 1/2 Gallon or 2 ltrs each per person per day!
Minimum 3 Days for 4 People - 6 Gals or 24 ltrs (10 fruit juice bottles)
 Recommended 7 Days for 4 people - 14 Gals or 56 ltrs (24 fruit juice bottles)
 Very Good 30 Days for 4 people - 60 Gals or 240 ltrs (100 fruit juice bottles)

How long can we store it for ?
I always say if in doubt boil it! but i change my water about once a year, I use it in my water barrel for the plants and just refill, I do not use any stabilization, although  a droplet of clear unscented bleach in a 2ltr container is safe for consumption and will stop algae or bacteria growing, if you wanted to store it for longer.
Ideas for water storage in an apartment. keep water in a cool dark environment like bathroom, a cupboard, under the bed.
2.4Ltr fruit juice bottle makes ideal storage, very strong and easy to stack good seal on lid.
Milk container, is a good starting point but not very strong tends to leak and breaks easy.
These are much stronger and good seal on lid but not much storage capacity difficult to stack,
Wine bags from either box wine or in this case as you see it! very strong, dispenser valve for when pouring, very stackable, and great as spares, washed and stored flat dont take up much room and can be filled quickly. also in case where you had to leave your home in an evacuation these could be taken along with you and filled at destination or along route. keep 4/5 in a BOB ( Bug Out Bag)
