Number 8 – GROW YOUR OWN FOOD
Once you have overcome the initial disaster situation and have successfully bugged out, the next natural progression is to start to consider a long term plan.
The plan must take into account whether you will be remaining in you bug out location for a decent period of time, and by decent I mean a couple of years at least.
In just about any survival situation or any emergency scenario, it may be necessary to move about in order to avoid being compromised. If that’s the case then the long term growing of food has to be even more carefully considered. But it is more than possible to successfully grow your own food for survival with a long term plan.
If you intend to move about to avoid detection then it is still possible to start the beginnings of a food source with seeds that are both hardy and will reproduce naturally with the very minimum of human intervention and help.
These ‘crops’ can be left to grow naturally and can even form part of a food cache that you can come back to – remember, vegetables and crops will find a way to grow naturally. So with the minimum amount of help from yourself they will do quite well anyway.
Basic farming and growing methods are an essential survival skill to learn – even the very basic methods will produce food that is more than acceptable to eat.
As preppers long term food supplies is often overlooked, but it is actually a very essential part of prepping.
The good part is that we can prepare for doomsday survival food crops very easily – seeds are small, compact, lightweight and cheap. Everything a prepper wants.!
You can hold a vast supply of seeds that will produce food in abundance for you, year in, year out – you just have to be prepared with a stash.
