There are four factors that make a crop good for a survival garden: ease of growth, ease of storage, nutritional content, and caloric content.
Let’s talk about calorie cropping – growing with the goal of providing calorie-rich food, preferably food you can store for several seasons.
The best survival foods are calorie-dense, providing more calories per pound. You also want a hardy variety that will grow in numerous hardiness zones.
You won’t get a fruit harvest the first year you plant a tree, but if you pick one of the fastest-growing fruit trees, you might get to eat fruit sooner.
These vegetables can produce a harvest in as little as four weeks, and they give your family fresh greens to eat as you wait for the rest of your garden.
If you’ve been waiting to grow vegetables until you have a large backyard, your wait is over. You can successfully grow veggies in buckets.
You can grow any plant in a bucket. However, when it comes to bucket gardening, some crops are far better suited to it than others.
If you lack gardening experience, starting your own vegetable garden can seem pretty overwhelming. #urbansurvivalsite #gardening #vegetablegardening #beginnergardening #garden
Growing your own groceries in five-gallon buckets allows you to raise enough food to feed a family of four in a tiny space.
Not only is bucket gardening a great solution for people with limited space, it has many advantages over traditional gardening.
