idk if you know this but most old people sit around all day literally waiting to die. yeah there's a few years of retirement where they'll spend tons of time with their kids and grandkids, but after a certain point they just slow way down and the apathy settles in for good. they couldn't care less if they go to sleep and never wake up, or their cpap fails, or they develop terminal cancer. their memory is fading. the days are full of arthritis and disorientation and everything they once cared about is gone. all they have to look forward to is all that getting worse. and at that point the only people keeping them alive are their children, who do so with about as much interest as someone looking after a familiar houseplant, since they have their own kids and grandkids at that point to worry about. being old is supreme isolation, even when you're around other people. that kind of existence isn't something to be proud of, it's cursed

I live in South Australia. If I remember correctly I don't think that you can hunt on Crown Land and have to do it on private property. I've been practicing with a bow for a while so I'm trying to steer clear of guns.

Not all fungus are created equal. Clear-cutting a field for a crop disrupts established mycelia networks and allows opportunistic fungal infections to take over. Potatoes mostly rot at the roots and tubers if soil remains wet long enough. Well drained soil surrounded by long-established prairie/native grass will be less likely to stay wet, and adequate calcium/magnesium/iron balance in the soil improves plant resistance.

Start with good, resistant potatoes. Actual potato blight is an infection, and is spread by cross-contamination, so knock out any potato bugs, aphids, and sphinx moths you find with light insecticide and remove any of them big enough and flick them into a jar of alcohol.

There's no bad weather, only bad clothing.

If a $9 shirt from Walmart does the job, that's fine. If I'd prefer a certain % of some synthetic wool nylon acrylic polyester fabric that keeps me way warmer without a bunch of thick layers, and will dry if it gets wet, then that's a nice feature. And sometimes that costs $$$$. I have a Uniqlo Ultra-Warm long sleeve that is 100% Cotton, I always bring a rain poncho, so nothing to worry about.

I despise premium Italian brands like Gucci and Balenciaga n shit, but actually strive to own/ try out stuff from Fjallraven, Cotopaxi Patagonia, etc

Expensive is over average price for the gear. If you use something that's $150 and the average you can find for similar items is $45 on Amazon or $70 at your mom and pop then that's expensive. Even if it isn't to you.

I would never sleep that exposed without a bivvy, especially at anything like that temperature, there's an extremely good chance you would never wake up again.

The Bivvy is really really important, IMO the Bivvy is more important than the Basha and does far more to protect you as a person, the Basha is just a bonus that takes the situation from survivable to comfortable.
>>
>>2372922
Im currently thinking about getting this one. I’m an absolute beginner and I don’t want to spend tons of money on something that I might not even use. But all the very negative reviews are quite off-putting. A problem is also that most bivy bags that are really good like the US Army and Dutch Army ones appear to be mainly available used.
>>
>>2372959
Buying good used high end stuff is often better than buying new mid tier stuff.

Buy from a reputable reseller with a good returns policy.
>>
>>2372959
I just picked up the Dutch one and I’m very impressed. The only downside is the zippers aren’t 100% smooth and jam up sometimes; Again, this stuff was only used in training and not in deployment, mine is dated 2009. Paid like $200 CAD (2 tanks of gas here btw) but that’s pennies considering the amount of Gore-Tex material used. If you’re over 6’2 you might have trouble finding the XL version. The USGI is probably better for the price but the Dutch one is luxurious compared to it. There are some civillian gtex bags but those will run you hundreds more. For example; the company that’s makes these bivys sells the exact same one for $900. If you want something even cheaper the usual Finnish suspects have a NATO style bivy for under $100 but it doesn’t cover your face or zip up and you’re supposed to lie on your side if it’s raining, more like a sleeping bag cover.

Its pretty good for a begginer, especialy if you buy one made of goretex. If you plan on only going out for 1 or 2 days then this will suffice 100% and the condensation wont be an issue. Its pretty good for hobo stealth camping and vagrant holiday uses one of these.
Its thick enough that you can use it comfortably without a sleeping mat as long as its a couple degrees warmer than you sleeping bag is rated for

perfect (that makes sense with the level of invasion you've described; they are more correlated with clay and loam). keep some weeds next year & try some lavender, sage, and thyme as borders if you like having herbs / showy shrubs, some curly dock will serve you flour and salad greens and can grow well with dappled sun, a similar sun demand as phlox and lily of the valley, so you can do those three near the edge of the plot as well, in the center try and do a strong/taller shrubbery, this can be any, but if you're looking to eat it, you can try staghorn sumac (well at home in ON), eastern white cedar for vit. C and christmas decor is good, and if you have drier or disturbed spots after a few years you could try to incorporate wild grapes to climb the branches (if you have sandy/dry clay clod patches mixed in), raspberry and wine berry will you give you a great mid canopy that should spread fast to slow the buckthorn, and wild strawberry will grow anywhere and everywhere, wintergreen is another good low cover option to keep the ground shadowed and will provide nice mint extract throughout the year. be sure to trim any and all young seedlings of buckthorn, and if you have any perennial sedges or flowers that you've bought, start them in that area now, if you want to do it naturally, gather transplants and tree seeds from your local area, but try to think at every scale, with multiple heights of canopy cover and multiple rings of different species coming out from the largest individuals. forest flowers will serve you well (trillium, daffodil, trout lily, lupines, violets, and forget-me-nots will give you a fantastic blanket) because they will act as a final filter to fully prevent the seeds from receiving sun exposure. here's umn's guide (https://coveritup.umn.edu/activities) for more info on removal, but that should be an okay set of plants for aggressive vegetation to start, but of course, anything that grows fast on your land would be a great help too! :)

Cinder block and brick raised beds are based but they have a couple of issues, they tend to dry out faster and get hotter than wood beds which is great for succulents but can cause issues with a lot of the more common veggies.
>>
>>2373058
here are the seeds used at umn (https://coveritup.umn.edu/seed-mix), southern ontario is pretty similar but depending on your town there may be some that are no-gos though most should be fine to plant (i can't see any issues, but i've not been home for a while so i'm not sure what's on the watchlists these days). birch and spruce saplings should push the buckthorn seeds out of place, and cherries will give you even more diversity in the seasonality of your sun blocking and will be basically a 1:1 swap for the buckthorn because of their similarities. after a few years you should be able to grow a lovely patch of forest flowers and forageables without needing a whole woodlot. :)

https://www.thespruce.com/groundcovers-are-low-lying-plants-2131058
https://www.thespruce.com/long-blooming-perennials-2131857

if you need any other varieties, these should also suit the region well and give you and yours something nice to look at all summer long. Hg can rise with increased canopy cover in clay and loam rich soils, so be sure to investigate local plants with high nutrient uptake/soil 'cleaning' properties after about two years of having full canopy coverage too.
