If everything crashed… what would you eat?
Personally, I’ve had enough MREs (one) to know that I wouldn’t want to survive on them.
Better to stockpile grains and beans, which you can live on in a pinch, then have some chickens for protein. Then you need fresh veggies. Which is probably why you’re reading this.
What plants are the best for survival?
Over the years, I’ve researched (and grown) quite a few plants as a test of their usefulness. That said, I’m working on a series of plant profiles that will be posted in upcoming weeks. We’ll look at a few key items, such as:
Ease of growing
Length of season
Availability of propagative materials
I’m going to use a 1-5 Spud Scale, based on that most excellent of survival crops… the potato. (Until a blight, of course.)
You can also get my book Florida Survival Gardening for even more information on survival plants and growing tips.
