If you haven’t, this is going to blow your mind.
Think about it this way – since nothing in this life is guaranteed (especially now that the election season is almost over) – if SHTF tomorrow and you have no survival garden, wouldn’t you rather know how to start saving your seeds so you can make up for lost time?
Note: You may need to purchase survival seeds if you’re in an emergency in order to start planting everything ASAP. Read these tips to ensure you get the right ones.
If you already have a survival garden, these are also great tips for saving money on survival seeds, and for sharing them with friends and family to help them survive longer too.
This election is coming to a close, and you and I both know that, more than likely, S is going to HTF sooner rather than later. That’s why it’s crucial to know these…
Important Tips For Saving Survival Seeds
If you’re new to the business of seed saving, here’s a short, basic synopsis of how it’s done:
Now that you know the basics, here are some general guidelines to help you become successful at seed saving:
1 – Allow Your Survival Seeds To Dry
Make sure to allow each of your survival seeds to dry completely before storing; this could take a few days after harvest. Remember, the bigger the seed, the longer it will take to dry.
Generally, seeds dry faster and more thoroughly on a piece of paper (think newspaper or printer paper) than they would on napkins/paper towels.
Make sure to place your seeds in a warm spot (around 66-70°F) and rotate them to ensure thorough drying. If you place them in direct sunlight outside, it’s important to keep them covered, and to bring them in at night.
2 – Prolong Their Lifespan
Although certain seeds naturally last longer than others, there are certain tricks you can do to help increase their lifespan.
For instance, you can store your survival seeds in the freezer (once completely dried) in order to keep them fresh for longer. Keeping them in a sealed bag/envelope or an airtight container will also help.
3 – Use Open-Pollinated Survival Seeds
Open-pollinated seeds generally produce plants that are basically identical to their parents; that’s why it’s important to save these seeds, as you tend to know more about what you’re getting into when you plant them.
It’s also crucial that, in addition to using open-pollinated seeds, you make sure that your seeds are also non-hybridized and non-GMO.
This is because, oftentimes, hybridized seeds and genetically modified seeds will become sterile after the first planting.
It is also likely that, if the survival seeds are not sterile, that they will produce plants that are very unlike the previous (deformations, differing sizes, etc), causing them to be disappointing in appearance or even unusable.
4 – Consider What Survival Seeds You Want to Save
It may be tempting to only save seeds from a few select types of your favorite fruits and vegetables; however, if SHTF, doing so could mean that you not only have a small variety to eat and cook with, but that you also have a much more limited supply of produce to stock up on when you need to.
Consider saving a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs – not only will this produce a fruitful harvest, but it will also allow you to stock up on plenty of produce during the next harvest.
Here’s a cheat sheet to help you know when to pluck the seeds from various fruits/vegetables in your survival garden:
Now saving seeds from the produce you already have is a fantastic idea; it saves you money, and if the seeds end up not being reusable you’ve spent virtually no time, energy or additional money in saving them.
However, when SHTF (and based on this month’s election results it could happen extremely soon), you won’t have time to slowly stock up on seeds and wait to see if they’re reusable.
And you can bet that, at that point, you won’t be able to depend on the grocery store shelves to stock you up, as they’ll likely be clear in a matter of hours.
No, when SHTF (and like I said, I see it coming just around the bend), you need to have a large stock of survival seeds that you can depend on to keep you and your family from starvation for years to come.
If you’re in the same boat as many Americans are right now and you don’t have either a thriving survival garden or a stock-up of good, dependable survival seeds, you’re in luck.
