4 Years Later I Test My Survival Seeds
For as calculated as preparedness can be there are a lot of products on the market that require quite a bit of faith. Products that, for many of us, should read DO NOT OPEN UNTIL THE APOCALYPSE. For busy Americans it’s very rare that we get a chance to test all of our plans and items. Sure, we should but we don’t. Therefore some items are great mysteries to me.
The can and the superpail in food storage, unless rotated into your weekly menus, can be one of these instances. You can look at it, shake it, smell it better but until you open it there is a lot of faith involved. If you crack that container and find that a big chunk of what was supposed to get you through is either infested or spoiled it could be your own personal SHTF scenario.
So knowing that I as even more curious about another product I store.
CANNED GARDEN SEEDS
16 non hybrid hermetically sealed gridlocked packets
By Mountain Valley Seeds INC.
Salt Lake City, Utah
This were given to me as a gift from my wonderful Mother in law who understands the dangers of the world both national and personal. It never hurts to have backup. I think she purchased them through Emergency Essentials.
The variety inside is as follows
Still, a lot of faith for something like this. It’s an absolute nuclear bomb in terms of preparedness power. It gives young you 16 different vegetables in large quantities. It also comes with a manual for caring for these plants and most importantly techniques for harvesting their seeds.
It sat under temperature control for about four years and I decided it was time to crack this can and see if these seeds would perform outside of cryostasis.
Its been about a month now and the seeds have performed as though they were purchased this year. I have food in my garden that is on the way to maturity. Had this been a much more severe situation my family would be fed because of this prep. Yet had it failed things could’ve gotten ugly.
No matter how prepared you are there are several pieces of your plan that require faith. Pieces that could go awry. This is a great product that was tested for just that. It made a claim and stood up to that claim. I recommend it and will be buying another.
