This week our assignment is adding 21 lbs of wheat to what will be your #bucketfoodstorage!
Now, I have a love hate relationship with storing wheat or wheat berries. I want the convenience of flour (already ground, hello!) however... Wheat will store practically forever and keep its purest form while flour will not store as long and will lose its nutritional value over time.
You can buy a relatively inexpensive grain mill (if you're local, Smithfield Implement (and similar stores) has a semi annual sale every year and mark mills way down)!
*If you plan to rotate and use the grain or flour within 5 years I stick a gamma lid on the bucket and call it good.
*If you want long term storage (in am organized bucket system) mylar bags are the way to go. This blog post from Prepared Housewives is awesome
*if you want to just keep it in the bag you got it from, fine.. But keep mice and water in mind (paper or plastic sacks don't make for long long term storage)
This one can be a bit more overwhelming but you can do it!! And once you just do it- will be easier for the next bucket! ;) #prepardness #emergency #Preparation
Hello! I'm so excited that you have stopped by. That tells me that you are ready for a new way of life and I couldn't be more happy that you listened to that voice that got you here!
