What seems to be one of the most popular entertainment themes we see in the United States? If you answered something with the apocalyptic word or any derivative of it, then you answered correctly. In recent years, this nation has seen post-apocalyptic movies and television programs that dominate screens everywhere. Whether it is one of the numerous thematic zombie creations or an epic of the end of the world, we have been exposed to this somewhat fantastic world in which we do not live. At least, we still do not live there.
Along with these interesting versions of life, mostly composed, are the warnings of what will come in the real world version of the apocalypse. Since we do not know how or if the world will end, all we can do is be prepared for something to happen.
As human beings, we like to be prepared, and there are a multitude of ways we can be ready for the world after a catastrophic event occurs. While some people build shelters, which is a good idea, others make their food situation arrange for them to be prepared. However, others collect ammunition and firearms because they want to shoot until the end. No matter how you think it is best to plan for the end, make sure that the organization is done with the utmost care and thought.
Although shooting and construction will have a place in the world of survival, the most important type of preparation is food. If you choose the correct and correct seeds of survival, then you will be ready to focus on other challenges, possibly more dangerous to life, of the apocalypse. The seeds of survival will be a platform on which you and your family can build to survive.
Prepare to be prepared
To successfully prepare to grow a survival seed garden in a survival situation, you must know how to grow a garden, collect the right seeds and accumulate nutrients so that you have food as the first crop grows. So, do you want to buy seeds to plant in the future? First, you need to know what kind of seeds to buy, and how they will react to your climate, as well as how the taste buds of the family will react.
When you select the type of seeds you want to buy for your survival plan, choose carefully. Make sure the seeds you buy are totally organic. These organic seeds will produce better yields and will have generations that can also produce a useful food source in difficult times.
In addition to organic requirements, all purchased survival seeds must be non-hybrid seeds and pollinated outdoors. This means that seeds can be pollinated from external sources, such as wind, birds, bees, etc. Pay attention to this advice, because the final culture of a crop whose second generation could become sterile or unable to be pollinated would be the final mistake.
Before spending a lot of money on various types of seeds that may not grow in your climate, research and discover which seeds will grow best in the climate in which you currently reside. This will allow their seeds of survival to have the best chance to mature. Actually, prepackaged seeds that claim to have chosen the right kind of survival seed supply for you are a bad idea. You want to buy many different types of seeds, and several derivatives of those seeds too.
Find seeds that thrive in your climate, that can grow in a semi-rough climate and that can produce a large number of plants to eat. You will not want to plant twenty-five plants that only produce enough food to feed the family for about a week.
Perhaps the most important part of all the planning of a future garden is to have seeds of survival that the whole family will eat and eat a lot. There is no reason to buy seeds that you or your family will not be ready to eat at the time of survival. Efficiency is key when it comes to surviving in a hostile environment, so it is so important that the little food that is edible for everyone in the group.
Those of you who have tried gardening and cultivation before will agree with my next advice. Practice cultivating your seeds of survival before making a big purchase of seeds. If you learn to grow these organisms well, in your own climate, then you will have a better idea of the hat that is needed to produce a good edible plant. This practice will allow you to do well the first time, when you find yourself in a difficult situation.
There is absolutely no way to know how plants will grow once they are in a survival situation. For this reason, plan accordingly. Make sure you store a ton of food, possibly up to a few years, so you do not run out of sustenance while trying to grow your first crop. It will take time for the crops to grow, and that time will be valuable.
Do not put all your eggs in a basket, as it could cause significant problems. Above the seeds of survival, find other ways you can survive. Learn how to hunt and track animals, get to know the right edible plants in your local forest and always have a plan.
Quick-hit seed advice
You can not store seeds forever. The first step to store seeds is to place the survival seeds in waterproof and moisture proof containers. If seeds get moisture inside their containers, they will most likely not germinate when requested. Ziploc Baggies are a great solution for moist seeds. The Baggies will seal the seeds so that they remain dry for a long time.
If you do not mind spending money on survival accessories, most survival companies survive and sell a container that keeps moisture away from the seeds and promises to keep them ready for planting. For those of you who do not want to spend extra money, place the Ziploc bags in a glass or mason jar. This will also keep them dry and fresh.
And if you want to go beyond the duty of survival, you can insert moisture-proof packages into the jars to maintain a certain level of dryness near the seeds. Another smart way to preserve the seeds you have in containers without moisture is to place them in the freezer. This will allow the seeds to freeze for long periods of time and will still be fresh once they are removed.
The next step for proper storage of survival seeds is to place them in a dry, dark and cool room. As you know, plants need water, sunlight and heat to grow. Remove those things from your seeds and they will stay fresh and ready to grow for years. If they are placed in the right place, some seeds can be good for several decades. Although they last a long time, I recommend changing them after a certain number of years, preferably less than ten.
There will come a time when you will realize that the seeds of survival that you have been storing must be replaced. Once you think the seeds are fresh, say five to ten years, take the seeds out of the store and plant them.
First, you will know if you can plant them after that time and, if not, you will know how to replace them sooner. Once the seeds have grown to maturity and have produced a viable second generation, you know that your plants have been successful. After planting the stored “test” seeds, you must choose how you will replace them the second time. He could go out and buy more survival seeds, but that would mean he has no idea if he can grow them or not.
The most intelligent way to replace the seeds would be to create relic seeds. The seeds of heredity are only the next generation of plants before they are grown. To harvest these relic seeds, you must dry them. Once they are completely dry, you can store them as your survival seeds.
The best thing about relic seeds is that they are extremely high in protein and can be consumed as sustenance if there is no viable way to grow them in a survival situation. In one way or another, the relic seeds will keep you hungry, so they are a great reserve of emergency food, in addition to being seeds of survival.
What seeds should I buy?
This is the most important question of all. As mentioned above, choose the seeds that your family will eat, which can grow well and do not require too much work to produce them. Finding the right seeds to buy can be tricky, to say the least.
Before jumping on specific seeds, you should know that there are two main types of survival seeds, grains and vegetables. While it is self-explanatory, it is important that you take both groups, so you can make meals with the crops you grow. Cereals and vegetables are the perfect complementary foods, and will help you to nourish yourself in any survival situation.
Wheat, an obvious choice for a survival seed, mainly because of its ability to produce high yield and, therefore, also to feed many mouths. It can be planted in the fall, ready to harvest and eat in the spring. Wheat can also be planted during the spring and harvested in the fall, but the protections that wheat receives in the winter give the plant a better chance of survival.
Wheat contains many important substances, such as iron and potassium, which are vital for the human body. The best aspect of wheat is that you can plant less than a hundred plants and come out with one or more than thirty loaves of bread.
Barley, the next good seed of survival to be purchased. Barley can be planted in winter or spring. It has a lot of health benefits, including a lot of fiber. However, barley can be used in other ways, such as feeding animals, grinding flour and making beer, although the latter appears on the priority list during a survival situation.
The last seed of grain survival is something that has been cultivated in North America since the times of the Native Americans; corn. Corn is an easy, high-yield plant that almost everyone eats. Corn is high in iron, protein and calcium. A disadvantage of corn is that it only grows in hot climates and will be eliminated if it is planted before a frost.
Definitely, onions They are one of the easiest crops to grow. Onions should be planted in the fall and are a great source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B.
The following in the list are peas. Being one of the most resistant plants on the list, the peas are planted in the winter. The peas are resistant to frost and are extremely easy to grow. Besides being easy to grow, they grow quickly. They are a great source of many vitamins and are the seed of perfect survival.
Another vegetable that is easy to grow is the Cucumber. A plant with a warm climate, cucumber grows best when it is harvested often. They contain vitamin A, C and K, in addition to having potassium.
The specific survival seeds mentioned above are only a guide for the type of plants you want to grow. Although it depends entirely on you and your preferences, try to find hardy plants that resist frost, have high yield and are full of the necessary nutrients of the human body. These requirements will take you in the right direction and give you exactly what you wanted for a survival garden when the time comes.
In summary, choose the seeds that you and your family will eat. Practice cultivating them in your backyard because the practice makes perfect. Find the right place to store and preserve the seeds, while replenishing them from time to time to ensure that your seeds of survival produce in a survival situation. If you follow those guidelines, your seeds of survival will produce enough year after year to satisfy all your nutritional needs. That is the goal, is not it? Produce the right seeds at the right time for survival.
