I would encourage you to do something every week to help with your personal preparedness. Learn something, buy something, teach something or do something. Doing a little each week will pay off .

Food Storage Friday - March 6

This week I am still working on my garden plans.
I bought seeds this week.
I received a newsletter from a local nursery that stated for the first time in 27 years gardening is making a huge comeback and they can't keep in their garden seeds. I decided I better to and get mine. I usually do it in March anyway because I have spring fever by then and it is fun to be in a nursery. I tried to find some herilom seeds because I plan to harvest seeds this fall.
We are in zone 4 so we have warm weather crops and cold weather crops.
The things that will be planted first (sometime in April are:Peas, lettuce, beets, radish, carrots, onions, etc.
The warm weather crops are things like corn, beans, squash, pumpkins, zucchini, and things I buy that are started like peppers and tomoatos.
I like to dry some of these things so I get extra to do that. I also get an extra bag for next year and tuck it in my basement. I also have a can of heirloom seeds that are canned in case of survival situations.
