Oh my bad, survival stuff would go in <#359944897676967946> .
i guess it depends on the type of survival
Probably should just merge these.
im worried about too many overlapping conversations
Well, most discussion in one is applicable to the other.
Doesn't really matter either way.
Zennex17, to answer your question from the sig chat: it's a new hobby for me and I haven't harvested anything yet. But I think that lettuce in the pic is about ready and it's been ~3 weeks since the seeds sprouted from the rockwool.
Only the self-sufficient man is free
here's the website for their kit. https://emergencywaterwell.com/product-category/diy-water-well-kits/
Anyone know anything about bovines?
Anyone have any experience with family milk cows, on the topic of self-sufficiency?
Not much, I knew some folks that had a milk cow. They also had a couple goats and said that the goats ended up producing more milk for their size than the cow.
It depends on the cow, cow's age and feed. Personaly I perfer more animals because it minimizes the chance of catastophry. http://www.backwoodshome.com/bovine-basics-for-beginners/
P.S. did you know that there are dairy sheep breeds.
Sheep herding would give the ladies plenty of work and generate a nice income for the community
maybe putting up our best livestock for studding
Anyone know anything about sheep?
not really tbh
also here's a bit of something on agriculture if we decide on mossy rock
I know orchards are huge in WA and OR
What sort of orchards?

All natural too
