We have done a couple posts about survival garden's and when I saw this post on Natural Blaze and wanted to share it with our readers.
To get started with your garden will depend on the amount of space you have, the climate, and the availability of seeds, starts, or cuttings. A good recommendation is that to start with three or four herbs that appeal to you from a healing perspective. Most of these plants can be grown in pots on a porch or deck so if space is your problem, you can start modestly. If you would like to learn more about the healing properties of herbs, the University of Maryland Medical Center has a web site with a lot of useful information about herbs and other alternative medicine topics. Please share with your family and friends, so they can start their own healing garden!
Some of the herbs they recommended are Basil, Parsley, Sage, Peppermint and Lavender. To find out why these are recommended and to get the full list checkout Natural Blaze and Natural Cure Not Medicine.

Today is National Day of Action: Readying for an Emergency WFAA.com has this video talking about the recent tornados that have hit in North Texas. If you missed our post last week about Tornados, you can find it here.
With storms comes power outages and the thought came to me, how many of our readers have a generator that they could use to keep cool during a power outrage in the hot Texas weather? Generators are great but they cost a lot of money! So for those of you that have not saved up to buy one of your own I found a great tutorial on how to make your own Air Conditioner over at The Blaze.com:
