Creating for Perishable and Non-Perishable Goods
Being in the digital age we have a nasty habit of wanting to get something because at the time we have a use for it. We immediately go down to the local retail store (hardware, food, electronics etc.) and expect to see it there on the shelf, ready to be bought. Even before this time of consumerism, when you had the need for something (albeit the times were a bit more simple) you had to order and wait for it for 3-8 weeks before you could put your hands on it. Even before then, you had to learn how to make it yourself.
THIS IS WHAT THIS SECTION IS ALL ABOUT
Creating the items you need in your daily life. whether it is a simple nail, or a rope, or anything else you would like to have to make your life just that easier to bear. ThatAquaponicsGuy is continually scouring the wavelengths and depths of knowledge for those things that we can do with our own two hands for a one-time use or an ongoing purpose. Below you will find the latest in what we have been able to drum up for the community.
This Creation section can deal with anything that takes action to make, refurbish or put together related to food, tools, dwellings, tutorials – Anything. The common denominator in all of this is to be able to receive sustenance from it or be a benefit to the users and the public in general. When you look to create, instead of just buy, you start to realize the importance of materials in their beginning states as well as the finished products whether store-bought or self-made.
Find out more on what you need to have what is needed to generate your own Food Stuffs. Obviously dealing with what we put down our gullets, this can be as simple as recipes for a dish or two, or the butchering and preparation of diverse animals for later meals and consumption. Nutrition and time of preparation are all considerations here so although you can eat certain things you wouldn’t normally think of, we won’t be breaching that subject at all.
The concept is, that if you and/or your family need it to stay alive and remain healthy when it comes to your caloric and nutrient intake, we want to do our best to cover it here.
This can also include the methods, tools, or systems you can use to create that bouvie of Food Stuffs that can last you not only through a crisis but also meet your day to day needs as they occur. Come and enjoy this wonderful and delicious ride with Foooooooooood!
We are also covering those things that are designed for just a one-time use. Well, that does include pre-eaten food… ahem… it also includes anything that, again, you can create, put together or refurbish for your immediate and longer-lasting needs.
There was a need in times past, and we have gotten used to going to the store and just buying these disposable items, and when the supply systems stop functioning as they have or that those items we liked so much are no longer being manufactured we can continue enjoying those One-Time-Use items through our own genius and industriousness.
For example, self-made q-tips, or teeth floss, or toothpicks. Things you use on a regular basis, but are truly designed to use for just one time. Look what we can get ourselves up to in this realm of Creation.
This differs from the One-Time-Usage category… these are things that we can create once and it works for as long as it can last. Again this can be food related, but mostly located in the systems we use to grow, take care of, and harvest. This also includes the tools that we have that can be of continual use to us. Additionally, we can categorize the mechanized, the electronic, the “contraptions” that make living life and going about our daily happenings more bearable.
This can include anything, furniture, rugs, cars or vehicles, any machinery of any sort. And also could include items like Smoke Houses, Chicken Coops and such the like.
These items won’t necessarily last “forever” but can be around long enough to get a name (other than what it is) and can be handed down from generation to generation. Family heirlooms where something that people took care of and were proud to be able to give to the next generation. Something that has been lost in our contemporary, throw-away state of things.
This encompasses things that can be done to food or other materials that are around us that can sustain their usefulness for a bit longer than the One-Time-Use and maybe not as long as those things you can deem as family heirlooms. We will cover the methods of creation through freeze drying, canning and jar-centered preservation of food.
We can also cover those things that can be used by us in an external capacity such as creams, salves, and oils. Candles, and other household items can be found here as well.
As we build our lexicon of all these categories, it is our sincerest hope that you can find them as useful and as life-giving as we have by getting them to you.
