Managing Bees – The Queen and her Court-Part 2

Managing Your Bees
I am amazed every time I watch my bees. They are simply fascinating. In true HRH fashion, I’ve named my queens – after the queens of Bohemia, of course. Queen Beatrice reigns over my first hive; the others are Queen Adelaide, Queen Caroline and Queen Eleanor. In this post, I’m going to discus [...]

Four Awesome Survival Knives on Amazon

Survival Knives
When I hear the words Survival Knife the first thing I think of is the monster knives that Sylvester Stallone carried in the Rambo movies First Blood (1982), Rambo (1985) and Rambo III (1988).

Getting Started With Bees
Did you know that honey doesn't spoil?  It is literally good forever.  Honey was found in Egyptian tombs and after 3000 years, it’s still edible.  Honey is Nature’s most amazing sweetener.  Unlike sap used to make syrup, and cane used to make sugar, the honey of bees requires no processing [...]

Eggs! Eggs! Eggs!

Homestead eggs
In my mind, the #1 benefit of having poultry on our homestead is fresh eggs. They are a wonderful food; small, self-contained, nutritional treasures. An average chicken egg is 50g, containing 6g of protein, and about 78 calories. In a 2000 calorie/day diet this represents 12% of the daily recommende [...]

Diversify your flock with ducks!

Diversify your flock with ducks!
Last spring, my husband thought it would be fun to add ducks to our homestead; remember, diversifying isn’t just for stock portfolios. He did some research to make sure that we could provide the right environment for them and found that it was going to be easier than expected. Backyard Chickens.co [...]

Veteran Land Benefits: Only Texas and Alaska?

Veteran Land Benefits
Every prepper needs a piece of land to bug out to. If you happen to be a Veteran, why not buy some Veteran Land through your State Veteran Benefits? I started researching for this post, assuming that all of our fifty states had Veteran Land programs. I planned to list each state and a brief overview [...]
