This Week

When I ordered my package of bees in January, the April pick-up date seemed so far away. Now it's time to pick them up, and I'm both excited and terrified.

I've reviewed and am giving away a copy of The Prepper's Canning Guide, a great book for both beginning and experienced canners. I hope you'll go read the review and enter for your chance to win.
