Carson City, NV – September 23, 2017 – A great number of preppers are now opting for heirloom seeds in their survival gardens. This is not surprising since these heritage varieties are known for their remarkable taste and ability to withstand harsh conditions. After all, heirloom survival seeds have been around for ages and have stood the test of time—making them very adaptable and suitable for survival gardening.
While planting an heirloom survival garden is easy, it does require some careful planning. Each plant must serve a purpose in order not to waste valuable space. Whether they are used for nutritional or medicinal purposes, the plants should be easy to grow and quick to harvest. Quickness is crucial especially since a regular food supply is needed in a survival situation.
To help preppers decide what varieties to plant, Home and Garden America has just shared the 10 best heirloom veggies to grow for survival purposes.
“Since you’re growing food for survival, time and nutrition are determining factors in choosing which plants to grow. You definitely want heirloom vegetables that are not only fast-growing but also highly nutritious to supply your family’s dietary needs especially in times of crisis,” said a representative for HAGA.
Heirloom vegetables such as bush beans, carrots, cucumber, kale, lettuce, peas, radish, spinach, squash and turnips are some good choices to begin with. To guarantee a continuous supply of food, the HAGA representative advised preppers to grow the heirloom vegetables using succession planting techniques.
“As soon as one vegetable has been harvested, plant another vegetable right away. Start with early cool-weather crops and replace them with warm-weather crops afterwards. For instance, you can begin with spinach and replace it with some bush beans once it matures. Kale, lettuce, peas, radish, spinach and turnip are all cool-weather crops, while bush beans, carrots, cucumber and squash are good for the warm weather. Consider this when planning so that your survival garden will produce a great variety of crops for the whole family to enjoy,” the HAGA representative further advised.
With careful planning and execution, prepper families can easily grow fresh, healthy crops to supply their nutritional needs not just in a survival scenario, but for everyday consumption as well. Interested readers can get more information on this topic at the Home and Garden America page.
