Are you ready? Survival Seeds are crucial

survival seed vaultSeeds are Essential to Survival-
Back40 recently began selling their Essential Seed Vault, and we were  more than happy to take a look at them, and give an honest review.

I think we were all surprised how substantial the Seed Vault is. You get a #10 can PACKED full

of 16 varieties. You get 22,000 seeds! Reading the list, it looks like a great cross section of varieties was chosen to maximize nutrition, while still giving a delicious variety to the diet. I also love that some of the veggies are quick growing for immediate (within 30 days) harvesting, while others can be harvested later, or continually over the season.

The can contains a great selection of vegetables. Vegetables like beans and tomatoes that can be eaten fresh or canned, versatile squash and carrots that can be cooked into a number of delicious dishes, and Swiss Chard which is LOADED with vitamins!

If you’ve never gardened before, or you just want to check out the quality of the product, spring is the best time to “test” your survival seeds. The Back40 Seed Vault packs the seeds in well labeled re-sealable Mylar Baggies, so you can plant a few to get familiar with them. The growing guide is very helpful for newbie gardeners, or anyone who just needs a quick reminder….

The seeds look great, not wrinkled and old, and I’m confident that this container could keep them safe for at least 4 years. Including a can or three of the Essential Seed Vault in your stockpile could only be a good idea… to grow your own food AND to use as a barter item!

We’ve done some test planting in our garden, so we will update as things grow!.
