The Absolute Rights newsletter is constantly providing survival information to help people prepare for an emergency or crisis situation, and the article “How To Save Heirloom Seeds For Your Survival Garden” published today in their newsletter covers seed saving. When people begin a survival garden, the newsletter reveals they will be taking a big responsibility for their own food supply. Once they have learned how to save seeds, they will have moved another step towards self reliance, today’s article in the newsletter adds.
The article today in the Absolute Rights newsletter explains that many people that have gardening skills, and understand how to save seeds may think that saving seeds from heirloom varieties is done the same way. That is not the case though, the newsletter article reveals, there are special things that people will have to pay attention to when learning how to save heirloom seeds.
Many heirloom varieties have been passed down from one generation to the next, the newsletter reveals, unchanged through history. The article in today’s newsletter explains that these types of vegetables have outstanding taste, because they have been picked for their extraordinary qualities throughout the ages to cultivate. Heirloom plants have adapted over a long period of time, the newsletter goes on to say, and heirloom plants are also normally more resistant to disease and pests, along with extreme weather.
Without heirloom seeds, the newsletter published today explains that the seed companies would have total control over all seed distribution. This puts people that want to be in control of their own food supply system in a very bad place the newsletter adds, so they must rely upon heirloom seeds to keep control. The newsletter reports that if people use hybrid seeds, they cannot save the seeds, because the plants grown from seeds saved from a hybrid plant will not come back true to the variety it came from.
Today’s article published by the Absolute Wealth newsletter explains that this is reason enough to learn how to save heirloom seeds, and take the extra steps to keep your heirloom varieties in circulation, because so many of the heirloom plants that once existed have disappeared.
