Some growers say that locally produced seeds are naturally acclimatized to the area’s growing conditions because the plants have already grown for at least one season in the place where they are planted again.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 15, 2013
Prior to World War II, saving seeds from the best of one season’s crop to plant the next season was commonplace. After decades of largely ignoring this tactic, many gardeners in the U.S. are starting to employ the practice once again.
According to a recent report in the San Jose Mercury News, there are an increasing number of gardeners who save seeds from their best plants to sow again the next season, with seed exchanges and seed libraries increasingly cropping up.
Some growers say that locally produced seeds are naturally acclimatized to the area’s growing conditions because the plants have already grown for at least one season in the place where they are planted again. Over time, plant strains adjust even better to their environment.
SurvivalSeeds4Patriots applauds this strategy, recommending that people make sure they use only open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified seeds in their gardens.
Providing a path to independence and self-sufficiency, SurvivalSeeds4Patriots offers the Liberty Seed Vault. The air-tight metal storage container includes more than 5,400 heirloom seeds from 21 varieties of vegetables including broccoli, spinach, carrots, squash, corn, tomatoes, onions, beets and zucchini. Each order is accompanied by four guides and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
After growing and enjoying these nutritious vegetables, gardeners can use the seeds from the harvest for next year’s crops, so they never have to buy seeds again. The company says that this strategy provides additional benefits because it allows people to be less affected by food shortages and increasing food prices.
Unfortunately, not everyone is able to grow a garden. But after storms such as Katrina and Sandy, as well as many other weather events, many people have learned the hard way that having a stockpile of emergency food is a must.
Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, launched a product line in July that includes 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits. The company sold more than 500,000 adult-sized servings of Food4Patriots survival food to concerned patriots within the first few weeks.
