Survival Seed Bank

Post by Sonshine on Tue May 12, 2009 9:38 pm

Now you can grow all the survival food you will ever need anywhere in the country with a kit that contains a special seed bank of hard to find, open pollinated… super seeds, grown by small, fiercely independent farmers.

Sonshine, did you get that "article" in the mail, and did it have a sticky note on it that said something like "You need to see this--J" ?

Actually it was in a newsletter I get. Don't remember which one now.

I've got a good supply of many varieties of seed, and would be willing to part with some.

I have sweet corn, beans, peppers, tomato, cilantro, tomatilla, watermelon, cantaloupe, dill, several types of field dent corn and a few other odds and ends, all that I trust for purity, saved by myself and grown organic.
I would be happy to offer them on a donation basis.
Any thoughts ?

Think it might have been a homeschooling newsletter? I got one in the mail with a handwritten envelope with no return address. Inside was what looked to be an article from US News Today (or something similar--since I don't have it in front of me I can't remember exactly). And on the "article" was a sticky note that said "You need to see this--J"

It was just weird--it seemed personalized, but lots of people got the same note according to the discussion on HT and were speculating that a homeschooling site that we'd given info to had sold our info for the sales pitch.

I just wondered if you'd gotten the same thing.

No, I don't get anything like that in snail mail. It was from one of the newsletters I get in my email. But can't remember which one.

I heard about it on Glenn Beck a few weeks ago but couldn't find the site. I was driving and couldn't write it down. scratch Then when I went looking for the site I couldn't remember the name. I figured someone would find it at some point in time...Go figure it was Katrina.... lol!

Hi Forerunner,
You may want to re-post this in our barter section so it doesn't get lost. Also, anything else you would like to barter or sale you're free to post there. Smile Now, forgive my ignorance, but the field corn, is that what you feed to animals? I'm wanting to grow some corn for my chickens, but the only seeds I've found around here have been for sweet corn.

Yes, field corn....a.k.a. dent corn.
It's great (when grown organically) for making your own corn meal and it's top quality animal feed. I have several varieties, including some high protein/drought resistant stock that originated in the American southwest.

Sweet corn does make good animal feed and table use corn meal.
Let it stand on the stalk until dry maturity and process the kernels as you would any flour grain. As far as that goes, sweet corn is an excellent summer forage for cows and goats. As you thin the early plants, feed them to either animal. As you harvest your roasting ears, cut the mature stalks and feed them as well. They are sweet and, during the "foddering" season, you'll notice extra thick and plentiful cream, increased milk production and a sheen on the animal's coat....

Do you have any seeds that will do well in Georgia's clay/soil?

Hmmm..... maybe the better question would be... what have you done thus far to improve that Georgia clay/soil.

You know, George Washington Carver opened those poor soils to the world market with peanuts and sweet potatoes. I do have peanut seed.
The sweet potato slips may not enjoy the shipping experience.

Does anyone here compost ?

We haven't been here long. We're military, so have moved around a lot. We're hoping this will be our last duty assignment though. We have been working with compost trying to work the soil. It's doing better this year than last year did.

Do you have any luck growing peanuts that far north?

We do grow good peanuts.

When I get time, I'll try to throw together some thoughts about composting and soil improvement. It's raining, again, but I need to get SOMEthing accomplished today. My natives are getting restless.
