Are you a prepper? Then you will want to add our doomsday home page to your list of sites to visit. A few years ago I started watching the "Doomsday Preppers" show. I was fascinated with the prepping people were doing.
I did notice some things with "seeds" that were not right or that were left out altogether. So I decided to develop a plan for those prepping and needing information on seeds as far as to what, how many and so forth to plant.
For instance, one show talked about a family who was saving seeds from the produce they bought at the store. The problem is that if these seeds were from a hybrid plant, (being store bought, they probably were) they will not grow as expected.
For seed saving, open pollinated seeds are needed.
Flowers will be needed if somehow the bees have survived (there are always survivors) to produce honey. Sunflowers will be needed to produce oil as well as to eat and feed fowl.
Herbs will be needed not only to add spice, but also for health since many aches and pains can be treated with herbs. There are also herbs and plants that will help keep away insects.
So as time goes on I will be developing these pages and then suggesting which of our products would be best to use.
One thing that I came up with is the 1/3 rule (if someone else has this I do not know about it). Plant 1/3 of your seeds for this season. Keep 1/3 for next season. Store 1/3 for emergency purposes.
And you would want to make sure you keep these in separate places. So if something happens and you lose one cache, you do not lose them all.
You will want to keep your seeds separated (do not store them all in the same place) and save fresh seeds each season for your doomsday prepper collection because seeds lose some of their ability to germinate as each year goes by. Some of the seeds will still come up or germinate so don't throw away unused seeds.
