2-Month Barrel Project

This is an unimpressive photo of what will become my first "2-month barrel" project. It includes:
  • 50# white rice
  • 50# hard red wheat
  • 25# white sugar
  • 1# brown sugar
  • 40# assorted beans- I think 7 kinds, plus popcorn!
  • 25# oatmeal
Next I have to add
  • 25# assorted pasta
  • 4 12-pks evaporated milk
  • Mylar bag of baking essentials
  • Mylar bag of coffee beans
  • Mylar bag of Tang ("makes 22qts" size)
  • 15# dried potato slices
and in the 10# can size:
  • peas
  • cheddar cheese
  • mozzerella cheese
  • applesauce
  • craisens
  • corn
And then seal it up in a 55-gallon barrel. Ideally it could be buried, but sticking it in a closet or something works too. It's the bare bones supplies for hard times. Go me!!
