Sometimes I wonder what the government is doing to our economy and our society. I'm not ready to move out of the dear ole' USA, but I have started to do some heavy planning for the future.
The goal: To produce as much of the food we eat on our property.
I think we have the protein covered (beef, lamb, eggs, etc.) We've got water from a well and milk from the cows, but what about the veggies? I've gardened for the past two years, each year being more successful than the last, but gardening is still quite new to me and foreign to my parents and this goal is one we all share. So this year we are planning to plant quite a large garden for a couple of newbies and a not-so-experienced leader.
I got a tip about seed buying the other day and I wanted to share it with you. Hometown Seeds seems to have quite an array of seeds. The seeds I want to point you to is their Survival Seeds package. Designed to have you prepared in case of a crisis, here is what you get.
- Includes an 8-page instruction booklet.
- Enough seeds to plant 3/4 of an acre!
- Non-Hybrid seeds produce true to variety seeds to replant for future harvests.
- Optimum water content to increase storage life.
- Double water tight packaging.
- Hometown seeds is 100% GMO free!
So, as you start to plan for the future, do you have seeds for your gardens this year? Perhaps you want to plants some flowers next spring? Maybe you even want to tackle an herb garden? Or do you simply want to be ready for a crisis? If so, visit Hometown Seeds and I bet they can get you fixed up. I'm getting seeds from them and I plan on posting pictures all during the harvest. I never was an eagle scout, but I still like their motto... BE PREPARED.
P.S. I linked them in my new "Agrarian Links" gadget on the right in case you need the link later.
