Are you saving seeds?

IMG_00000256

We spend tons of money on guns, ammunition, knives, backpacks and all kinds of things labeled “tactical” – but what about seeds? Many of us that prepare for “bad times” ahead consider gardening an integral part of our systems. Seeds are ultra-inexpensive and readily available most anywhere.

I am not going to get into the whole Heirloom versus Hybrid debate. Why? It’s pointless. Why again? Because most of the vegetables seeds that are available locally

It’s easy to find excuses not to garden: I’m too busy, I don’t want to ruin the lawn, I don’t have enough space, I’ll start when I move to the country. There might even be a few who bought a container of heirloom seeds, tossed it

Starting a seed bank…….

Gardening is one of my hobbies. For the past 9 years I have continued to garden….learning and making mistakes. I look at gardening as one of those skills and abilities that go right along with preparedness. Supplementing food stored with that coming from gardening…well, just makes sense.

Every year I am always buying more seeds than I need. I also have not stored these extra seeds in any other manner than sticking them on a

Fall garden planted…..with old seed

I have found gardening to be a continuous learning process. Fall/Winter gardening is something I have little experience with and decided to do a little this Fall.

 

In one raised bed I planted lettuce (Red Seeded Simpson), broccoli, carrots, and radish.

 

 

In a small portion of my main garden I planted peas, broccoli, and more lettuce (Romaine).
