For those that have never gardened – getting started can be a daunting task.
Getting going in gardening can be accomplished many ways such as using raised beds, containers – and of course in-ground. I highly recommend to get into gardening ASAP if you are not already. It is a skill that is developed over time and much sweat and practice.
If you are just starting off I have one plant – one crop – that I highly recommend trying. This is a vegetable that I have found to be tremendously easy to grow and provides high yields in a small amount of space. Even in mediocre soil – as long as water is provided – you will have food.
What is this vegetable? Zucchini!
Zucchinis can grow large and provide an almost constant food supply once they start producing. Like most vegetables – they are not very high in calories but are flavorful and can be served many ways. I have had a zucchini bread that was just absolutely amazing. My favorite way to eat zucchini is grilled with a little Italian salad dressing on it. Awesome!
Planting a row or several hills of zucchinis can provide a large amount of food just by picking every few days.
For much of the country this is the time to get planting. Consider the zucchini as a important crop – both now as well as post-SHTF.
Take care all –
NOTE: IT is easy and cheap to get seeds right now – but you never know in the future. Please check out http://directive21.com/emergencyseedbank.html and consider the Emergency Seed Bank as an insurance policy for food production in the future.
