suture self!

I had a little time before a family function on a recent weekend, so I decided to spend some of it reorganizing a bit of the stuff in my garage. I was making good headway ... until I reached up to move a kayak and scraped my arm on something just out of sight. In my garage, this isn’t an unusual event, so I reflexively checked my arm to make sure I hadn’t broken the skin or been impaled by a big splinter. To my surprise, upon inspecting the site, I found a neat and arrow-straight 2-inch incision that provided me with a new, unobstructed view of the muscle in the underside of my forearm. I had caught my arm on the corner of a big piece of sheet metal. Fortunately, it…

plan smarter, not harder

If you have ever read any of my books or articles, you probably know that I am normally not a big fan of planning for one particular catastrophic event. I generally advise people to follow the path of looking at prepping and emergency preparedness in its entirety from the point of view that emergencies should be planned for by taking a broad-stroke approach. Recently, while I was in my cabin trying to finish an article about how people in Puerto Rico have been living “off the grid” for over a year, I was reminded that the one common denominator people have when their world gets turned upside down is their need for the essentials: food, water, shelter, security and medical treatment. I’ve been teaching my “six pillar” survival concept for a…

grow it in a greenhouse!

Gardening methods around the world vary immensely, because the soil, air temperatures, wind patterns and other factors differ greatly. The need to cover a gardening area is usually because you want to protect your garden from animals, but it’s often because you want to extend your growing season or protect your plants from a cold environment. Fences and other means are typically pretty effective for preventing pests from nipping your buds, but protection from the cold means building a greenhouse. In northern climates or higher elevations where it gets very cold, a greenhouse is a good way to extend your growing season and possibly provide you with year-round food. Considering that a greenhouse enables you to lay your seeds earlier and lets your garden produce later in the year, a greenhouse…

nuccio’s nurseries

The Quonset hut-style greenhouses at family-owned Nuccio’s Nurseries (Altadena, California) are good examples of low-cost, do-it-yourself greenhouses. This farm, established in 1935, specializes in camellias and azaleas for home gardeners and landscapers. It also does grafting and seed-growing and has developed many unique varieties over the years. Tom Nuccio, one of the owners, explained that his father and uncle built the five greenhouses on their mountain property in the mid-1950s. Each greenhouse was begun with metal tubing that was bent into a large arch for the shape of the structure. There was one arch about every 4 or 5 feet. These arches were then secured by horizontal wooden strips that were fastened to the arches, giving the basic framework horizontal structural stability. Most of the Quonset hut greenhouses were first covered with…
