This time of year gets to be extra busy for those of us who love to raise and grow our own food. Some call themselves farmers, others homesteaders, others simply gardeners. In the process of taking the step to be responsible for providing your food from your plot of ground, or even going to the farmers market, we are preparing and planning for the future. You hear a lot these days about “Preppers” and sometimes people picture someone out in the middle of nowhere with a huge gun and ammo supply and enough food to last a lifetime and they are hiding out. However, if you are planning out your food for the year through garden or homestead then you are technically a “Prepper”. 🙂 It is a very good thing and very useful. To help celebrate what you do, we are helping to sponsor this HUGE July giveaway to make your life easier. The bloggers you will see listed at the bottom along with myself have all gotten together to share this bounty with one lucky someone.
