Project Prepper, Part 34: Food Garden And Survival Seeds

In the last “Project Prepper” post, I blogged about starting a food garden. Progress has been slow (then again, frost warnings are still going out around here in the Chicago suburbs), but at least the fruit and vegetable seeds are on their way. I purchased heirloom seeds put together by My Patriot Supply, an affiliate marketing partner of Survival And Prosperity (discussed here). In particular, I purchased a flagship product of theirs called the Survival Seed Vault. From the website of the now Salt Lake City, Utah-based “Patriot Owned Survival Store”:

The Survival Seed Vault contains only the highest quality heirloom vegetable survival seeds. These Patriot Seeds are 100% Non-GMO, open-pollinated and placed in specially sealed packets allowing for long term storage…

• 20 varieties of hardy heirloom survival seeds passed down from our forefathers.
• Survival seeds rated for 5+ years of storage at 75F, longer at lower temperatures.
• No hybrids, GMOs, or outdated survival seeds. All harvested seeds are reusable.
• Each seed bank is hand-inspected and packed by our American staff to ensure quality.
• Includes detailed survival seed saving guide.

As for the kinds of seeds contained in the “Vault,” My Patriot Supply says on their site:

Included Patriot Seeds

• Blue Lake Bush Bean – over 150 heirloom seeds
• California Wonder Bell Pepper – over 70 heirloom seeds
• Marketmore Cucumber – over 150 heirloom seeds
• Scarlet Nantes Carrot – over 800 heirloom seeds
• Parris Island Cos Romaine Lettuce – over 900 seeds
• Golden Acre Cabbage – over 530 heirloom seeds
• Detroit Dark Red Beet – over 260 heirloom seeds
• Lincoln Shell Sweet Pea – over 100 heirloom seeds
• Black Turtle Bean – over 70 heirloom seeds
• Beefsteak Tomato – over 180 heirloom seeds
• Champion Radish – over 320 heirloom seeds
• Green Sprouting Broccoli – over 500 heirloom seeds
• Waltham Butternut Winter Squash – over 100 seeds
• Bloomsdale Long Standing Spinach – over 260 seeds
• Yellow Sweet Spanish Onion – over 145 heirloom seeds
• Golden Bantam Sweet Corn – over 250 heirloom seeds
• Hales Best Cantaloupe – over 70 heirloom seeds
• Snowball Cauliflower – over 285 heirloom seeds
• Black Beauty Zucchini – over 50 heirloom seeds
• Crimson Sweet Watermelon – over 60 heirloom seeds

As I mentioned in that last “Project Prepper” post, I plan on starting small with the food garden (remember- I’m new to all this). As such, I doubt I’ll be using many of the varieties of seed at first, let alone every seed contained in a pouch. Which is one of the reasons I chose the Survival Seed Vault. Their pouches are mylar, triple-layered, and resealable, where I should be able to use a few seeds at a time and put the rest back in storage.

I’ve had my eye on the Survival Seed Vault for a few years now in case the poop ever hits the fan. By purchasing one and trying to grow some of the seeds now instead of just socking away the unopened container for long-term storage, I’ll be able to evaluate the quality of these heirloom, non-GMO seeds from My Patriot Supply, start my food garden, and have the remaining Vault seeds at my disposal should a SHTF-scenario arise.

In the next couple of days, my girlfriend and I will decide which fruit and vegetable seeds from the Vault to plant this spring, taking into account their specific requirements and our ability (inability?) to meet them.
