One of the key paths to self-sufficiency, according to SurvivalSeeds4Patriots, is growing a garden in order to feed one’s family. Using open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified seeds, people can grow great tasting and nutritious vegetables and fruits, then use the seeds from the harvest for the next year’s crops.
The company says that this strategy provides additional benefits because it allows people to be less affected by food shortages and increasing food prices. In the first-ever customer guest blog published by SurvivalSeeds4Patriots, a homeowner reveals the secrets to planting a flourishing garden in the high Arizona desert.
In this guest blog post the customer tells how she did it and what she’s doing to make sure her garden continues to flourish in such a demanding environment.
The key learning revealed in the guest blog post is that a garden is possible, even in a place where the heat is high, the water is scarce and the ground is rock hard. Just breaking up the ground on a 20-foot by 40-foot piece of ground and soaking it thoroughly requires two weeks of work. Among the critters that are not happy with the change to their environment are spiders, scorpions and snakes.
Among the insights revealed in this blog are:
- How to water efficiently so as not to waste a drop.
- Why hill planting is the preferred method.
- The role that composting plays.
- The best timing for planting, watering and harvesting.
- The best way to close up the garden until the next planting season.
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, will be launching soon to help people be prepared for a crisis.
