Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
During the 1800s before America transitioned from an agricultural to an industrial society, many Americans grew their own food. Even those people who earned significantly less money than others had few worries when it came to food for themselves and their families because all they had to do was walk out to their garden or farmland to gather their next few meals.
Today, nearly one out of five Americans (19.33 percent) receives food stamps for a total of 47.1 million, according to a Fox News report. The Christian Science Monitor reported that 420,863 new people joined the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in August 2012 for a 2.86 percent increase over the previous month. A report from the Congressional Budget Office stated that the SNAP usage was expected to continue to increase through 2014.
According to SurvivalSeeds4Patriots, returning to America’s roots will yield a viable alternative. Claiming that seeds and a garden are the only guarantees of an ongoing food source and the only things that will enable families to achieve food independence, the company recently introduced the Liberty Seed Vault.
Packaged in an air-tight metal storage container, the Liberty Seed Vault includes more than 5,400 open-pollinated, non-genetically modified, heirloom seeds from 20 varieties of vegetable heirlooms. Each order is accompanied by four informative guides and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
A stockpile of non-hybrid vegetable seeds, plus the new seeds that will accompany the plants that they produce in their gardens, will enable people to feed themselves and their families forever. And, this garden food will be less expensive, more nutritious and better tasting than food purchased from grocery stores.
Among the vegetable seeds people can plant in order to have food year ‘round are cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, a wide variety of beans, carrots, corn, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, squash, melons, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, okra, onions, peas, pumpkins, radishes, spinach, zucchini, asparagus, beets, bell peppers and many more.
Plant growers should time their harvests based on the individual plant’s method of seed dispersal; clean the seeds and spread them out to dry; store them in packets, glass jars or other containers; label the packets and containers by variety and date; and store them in a cool or cold, dark and dry place.
For those who have not yet established a garden, or who want a larger variety of seeds than have been produced by the plants they’ve grown so far, the Liberty Seed Vault is a way to get started.
