10 Easy Survival Seeds to Grow

Survival seeds are one of those long term essential emergency preps that every family should have.  If the days come when a survival garden is needed, the family will be happy to have invested in such an important prep item.  In exchange for your energy and time, you will want a survival garden that will provide your family abundantly with food.  Non-GMO, heirloom quality seeds are the best choice to produce seeds you can save for future harvests.  However, stocking up on some packets of the GMO version is not a bad idea either. Although GMO seeds do not produce viable seeds for subsequent harvests, they are another back up for your back up and would be advantageous to have in times of a crisis. In this author’s opinion, a person can never have enough seeds.  If stored properly, these seeds can last much longer than their expected expiration dates.

One of the authors at Backwoods Home Magazine suggest planting survival perennials, or vegetables that come back on their own each year.  Perennials such as asparagus, Jerusalem artichokes, horseradish, garlic, perennial onions, and herbs of both culinary and medicinal.  The survival perennials are an efficient way to produce food and make good use of your time.  Some of these perennials, such as asparagus require two years to grow before they produce food.  Therefore, this is why it is so important to research which type of vegetables and fruits you want in your survival garden.
