Winter will be here soon, so it’s time to start thinking about what vegetables you can grow easily in your survival garden that can make it through the harsh weather. Also, SHTF is not going to care if it’s winter or if you’re hungry, so it’s best to be prepared in any case.
To accomplish a successful winter vegetable garden, you simply need to be able to solve a few simple questions, namely, what, where, when, and how. That is, what to plant, where and when to plant it, and how to keep it growing.
There are a number of vegetables that are more resistant to colder temperatures, and even enhanced by a bit of frost. To be as best prepared as possible for some of the natural challenges you will face by gardening through the winter, you need to be familiar with the regional limitations of where you live and garden.
Winter has always been a good season for a wide array of crops in the southern states, and in the northern tier of the United States, you can grow the same crops if you use a winter-protection device to broaden your garden’s productive season.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
