Heirloom Preparedness Seeds
In the uncertain times that we live in today, many have begun to store food and other supplies to prepare for the possibility of shortage in the future. More and more, you will find people of all ages, income levels and subcultures filling up their spare rooms with buckets of wheat, oats and beans and cans of freeze dried meats and vegetables.
There is a general feeling that the time has come to “hunker down” and prepare for hard times. Still many ask, “What will we do in six months or a year when the stored food runs out?” Or, “What will we do when our friends and family come to us pleading for help and because we choose to share; our year’s supply only lasts three months?”
Seeds: The Missing Link
These are important questions and the answer to which many are coming is that we will need to be able to grow our own food. And, in order to grow our own food we must have SEEDS. Seeds contain the hope of every new season – the promise of life if carefully stored, planted and nurtured. They are the beginning of self-sufficiency and independence. If truly there are desperate times coming, seeds will be the bridge that our children will cross into the future.
Storing Seeds Long Term
1. The seeds must be non-hybrid. A non-hybrid seed will produce a plant from which seeds can be harvested and planted the next year. This is essential since the goal is to be able to produce food every year.
2. Seeds must be kept out of moisture. Even moisture fluctuations in the air will degrade their life expectancy.
3. Seeds must be kept cool. A sealed container of seeds will store four to five years on a shelf at 70 degrees. Seeds stored in a root cellar, refrigerator or freezer will store much, much longer.
Preparedness Seeds is the Answer
Preparedness Seeds provides the missing link in your Survival / Preparedness plan. Both our Garden Can and Culinary Herbs Can contain only non-hybrid, non-GMO varieties that are packaged for long term storage. Because the varieties we have chosen are non-hybrid, seed may be harvested year after year, creating a self-perpetuating source of food in hard times.
