Re: Hello

Welcome, sounds as though you've made an excellent start. Plenty of info here on anything and everything, all you have to do is ask, someone will help. I'm with Arsozah, self-sufficency and prepping are close relations and there are people here who know a fair bit about both. Happy prepping to you.

I did wonder but they aren't just eating the ripe fruit they are picking the fruit off the bush and making a pile of it in corners. Unripe fruits too, it's weird.

strawberry thief - sort of

Any one know what has happened to my strawberries? I have dealt reasonably well with snails and blackbirds but I have just gone out to pick any ripe ones and there are hardly any berries left on the bushes.

Re: Would You Consider Joining A Prepper Inspired Community?

No, my privacy is important to me. I have brought up teenagers and don't want to live with any again thanks :lol: That said if the world REALLY turned upside down, I would happily make a community of family/extended family but with very strict personnel space rules.
