Survival and Self-sufficiency
I strongly suggest you find a place in your home or on your property somewhere — either in a basement, spare bedroom, closet, junk room, under the stairway, heated garage, out building or root cellar — and turn it into your own home grocery store and pharmacy.
Sometimes, we are in danger because we are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Knowing what to do to avoid such a situation, or what you must do if you cannot, can be a lifesaver.
Lots of people email and ask about what the best seeds are to store for long-term survival situations. With all of the deceptive and fear-based seed marketing in the preparedness market, it’s become confusing to try to figure out what kind of seeds to plant now and store for the future.
How prepared are you? How long could you live away from your home? What if you were given 10 minutes to evacuate? Are you prepared to be without a grocery store and pharmacy for a few weeks? Would you have enough food and water to survive for a few days, even a few weeks, in the event it took this long to get help?

With the economy continuing to struggle, Americans have been looking for additional ways to supplement their income. Many farmers have been opening up their properties to tourists in order to protect their incomes and increase their self-sufficiency.

An average backyard garden will cost about $30 for seeds and about $50 for organic potting soil and fertilizers, yet it will yield more than $600 in fresh, organic produce. That is a great investment, not only for our finances but also for our health.

What would you do if you suddenly found out water was no longer flowing to your home — and wouldn’t be for some time? Hopefully, you have stored some water to last your family for a few days at least (two gallons per day, per person). But if not, you need to look around your home for potential sources of water for the short-term while you make plans to deal with the situation long-term.
