Of course, before you get too excited about having your own supply of pork, you need to check the local laws on raising pigs and also make sure you are aware of any restrictions or special requirements.

Once you are satisfied that the legal restrictions are on your side you can then get into the process of preparation for raising your own pigs at home.

Free Range Chicken

Chickens are a great source of Eggs, of course, but they are also a good source of meat for the family when they eventually stop producing eggs..

Raising your own Chickens, in an urban environment, is actually much simpler than you might think.

But many people balk at actually getting into raising their own Chickens, mostly because they have no idea how to start.

A fellow writer friend of mine on HubPages, Billybuc, has written a wonderful article on what you need to know to start out raising your own Chickens.

Natural Insect Repellants for your Garden - Control Pests without using dangerous chemicals.

Grasshopper, Insect Pest

Probably the most popular insect repellant used today is the one called DEET, for short.
It is a chemical combination that was first used during the Vietnam War as a strong mosquito repellant, for the prevention of malaria in the troops.

Once it is sprayed, it works for up to twelve hours before it breaks down into harmless components. But, this spray is in itself toxic, if not used properly.

For those of us who want to avoid using harsh chemicals, there are other methods used to control certain insects that do not call for using toxic chemicals, more natural ways.
