My Survival Seed Bank arrived today!
survival seed bank canister is HUGE
And I can’t wait to get in my garden and plant the seeds!
Survival Seed Bank is a canister almost a foot tall, I must say I was a bit surprised when I opened the package. Didn’t think it was THAT BIG. It’s HUGE! Check out the pictures if you don’t believe me! Inside this foot tall container are seed pack with individual seed varieties..
I wanted to buy a seed bank for some time, for a couple of reasons. I notices, and I’m sure you have too, that the prices of groceries are rising all the time. Frankly, it’s becoming alarming if you ask me.
I particularly hate when producers don’t increase the price, but instead make the container a little smaller (lets say, instead of 10 oz of product, the newly designed container now has 9 oz). It’s still a price increase, if you get LESS goods for the same price!
So, it makes sense to start growing at least some of our food ourselves..
We are lucky that we have a large backyard and part of it is already converted in a vegetable garden. My wife and I (well, mostly me, but she helps) are growing vegetables for a couple of years now..it started rather small, with just a couple of tomatoes, peppers, some lettuce and spices, but since than every year we increase the number of vegetables we plant, and the yields go up every season! We planned our garden correctly, started a compost bin, have some raised beds even..it’s really coming along nicely.
nicely packed seed packages
Let me show you what you can expect in a Survival Seed Bank, if you decide to buy one. All the seeds are non hybrid NON-GMO seeds, and the usual varieties are listed below. I say usual, because sometimes, due to seed shortage, they may swap some varieties with others. But, always non hybrid non GMO! And the amount of seeds is always the same. Here’s the list:
Jacob’s Cattle Bean
Black Valentine Bean, stringless
Detroit Dark Red Beet
Copenhagen Market Cabbage
Scarlet Nantez Carrot
Fordhook Giant Chard
Golden Bantam Corn
Reid’s Yellow Dent Corn
Straight Eight Cucumber
Rosa Bianca Eggplant
Oak Leaf Lettuce
Red Salad Bowl Lettuce
Hales Best Melon
Yellow Sweet Spanish Onion
Green Arrow Pea
California Wonder Pepper
Early Jalapeno Pepper
French Breakfast Radish
Waltham Butternut Squash
Nice assortment of delicious vegetables if you ask me!
In case you were wondering, I bought my survival seeds from here, because I was able to compare all survival seed banks in one place before making a purchase, which i really liked. There is a nice table which is really detailed, with every data about each seed bank you need: number of seeds, varieties,packaging, detailed review and of course price! Really nice.
