So exactly what does it mean to be self-reliant vs. being self-sufficient? How are the two different and how are they related and how does one interact with the other. More importantly how do they effect you and you planning both for disaster preparations and independence.
The reality is most people use these two phrases interchangeably, but they are quite different in how you measure them and how you use them in your planning.

Bob Wells Plant of the Week – Red Gold Nectarine – The Red Gold Nectarine is highly adaptable from zone 5 to zone 9. It is a yellow freestone nectarine. It produces large fruit with a beautiful blush red skin covering its firm, juicy flesh.
Although the Red Gold Nectarine is a small tree with a mature height of 12-14 feet it puts on quite a show through the seasons. As with all Nectarine cultivars, the Red Gold does not require a pollinator.
The Red Gold Nectarine will thrive in full sun and you will be amazed by the abundant harvest in mid-summer. Perfect for eating right off the tree and a top choice for desserts. They’re also great for canning and freezing. Find this plant and more at BobWellsNursery.com
