Nowadays, people are much more conscious about the potential onset of what can generally be categorized as “tough times.” Tough times can come in a variety of forms, including natural disaster, financial/economic collapse, and military invasions. With the very real possibility that you will have to survive on your own for an extended period of time on the mind, many people are purchasing all sorts of survival materials to prepare for potentially difficult times.
While filling your basement with non-perishable food, first-aid kits, and other survival equipment is one way to prepare for disaster, it is not the end of the story. What happens if your 3 or 6 month supply runs dry? You can’t simply run to the store and pick up more food, and without any more rations you will be stuck to fend for yourself. Preparedness seeds, as they have come to be called, are able to provide much-needed nourishment when all else has run out.
While in most cases you will be able to hunt or fish for food, you will more than likely be without the proper nutrients found in common fruits and vegetables. Preparedness seeds will come in handy for longer emergencies that leave you without these essential fruits and vegetables.
What Are Preparedness Seeds?
Preparedness seeds are nothing more than normal, non-hybrid, non-GMO (Genetically Modified) seeds from life-sustaining fruits and vegetables. These seeds are able to be planted and harvested in a single season and will yield a crop that will provide its own set of seeds for planting. They contains a variety of nourishing nutrients that will help keep your body healthy and your mid as sharp as possible.
Preparedness seeds must be non-hybrid because, if they aren’t, the plants they produce will not yield seeds which are able to be planted. With preparedness seeds, the initial crop should yield you many more seeds which you can store and plan later on. These types of seeds are becoming more and more popular and can be an essential part of any long-term preparedness plan.
Types of Fruits & Vegetable Seeds
The variety of seeds which you purchase should coincide directly with the type of food able to be grown in the climate which you live. This means that people in temperate climates should stay away from tropical fruits and vegetables and those in tropical climates should avoid vegetables that thrive in more temperate climates.
With this in mind, the variety of seeds which you can purchase is truly immense. Some of the most basic preparedness seeds will yield fruits like watermelon, honeydew, strawberries, tomatoes, pumpkins, and more. The great thing about most of these fruits and vegetables is that they are able to be grown in most climates at specific points in the year.
How Long Will Preparedness Seeds Last?
The shelf life of preparedness seeds depends entirely on how and where you store them. In prime conditions (on a shelf in 70°(F) with dry climate) seeds will last at least 5 years. In absolutely perfect conditions, the shelf life of these seeds can exceed 10 and even 20 years. So long as they are kept in a sealed container and are not subjected to constantly fluctuating temperatures, your seeds will last for an extremely long period of time.
Being self-sufficient in times of natural or economic disaster means more than a stockpile of food and supplies, it also means thinking ahead and being prepared for extended, sometimes unforeseeable, periods of time. Preparedness seeds are the perfect tool for combatting lengthy periods of time where you are required to be entirely self-sufficient.
