This is an excellent option for emergency prep.  Please think about this opportunity.  It doesn’t matter whether you live in Texas, Pittsburgh, Utah or anywhere else.  This is a valuable thing to have in your plan and you don’t have to hunt to find this.  It’s a great price, too.

A garden is a must for the serious preparedness minded person. Lets face it, a year supply of food storage will not be enough to cover all of the bodies nutritional needs. For healthy living the human body requires and craves the vitamins and nutritiants found in living foods like fruits and vegetables.

Further food storage is not the answer to a worst case scenario of famine. It is a bridge, or a stop gap that allows the prepared time they need to implement long term food harvesting plans, like planting a garden. In such a likely situation heaven forbid that the seeds stored up by the prepared person be of a hybrid variety. Why? Hybrid seeds do not reproduce. They are genetically engineered to be sterile. In a famine situation, where the gardener does not have the option of buying more seed year to year from the store, they must rely on their heirloom seeds to produce what they require to replant their garden indefinitely.

Heirloom seeds were once the standard, but as science has manipulated nature to produce bigger, sweeter, or seedless crops they are on their way to becoming extinct. Hybrid seeds have replaced heirloom seeds so extensively that they are rarely labeled as ‘hybrid’ in seed catalogs or on the seed packets sold in stores. This is terrible news for you and me, but for major seed producers of the world, a great business move. They ensure repeat customers returning to them year by year to buy more seed. What better way to control a population than by its food supply?

If you plan to buy seeds via catalog or by shopping at the local garden center you must specifically search for ‘heirloom’ seeds. Be prepared to pay twice as much for them vs. the hybrid varieties.

Shelf Life

Adequately dried seeds sealed in moisture barrier containers can be stored safely for 4 years at 65 – 70 degree temperature and much longer at lower temperatures. Each 6 degree drop in storage temperature may double the storage life of most seeds. Critical factors are temperature and moisture content. Store as cool as possible. Can should remain unsealed until ready for use. For best results store unopened can in a refrigerator or freezer. Keep out of sunlight.
