You’re growing a survival garden for you, for your family, and for your group.
You do not want this wilderness garden to be out in the open for any “passerby”, hungry or not, to spot. Hiding your garden may be very important.
What to do? How can you hide it in “plain sight”?
One of the most important aspects of prepping is a survival food source. Most folks choose the food storage option, rotating bulk stocks to keep supplies fresh.
But if you’re looking for a long-term survival solution, you must consider the garden alternative. It’s hard work with a tough learning curve if you didn’t grow up on a farm.
However, if there’s a deep social collapse, how else will you feed your family and members of your group for months … or much longer?
As your watching this video by Survival Lilly, remember that there are all kinds of marigolds growing throughout the world. The different plants have different properties, some with unhealthy effects.
The botanical name of this marigold is calendula officinalis. If you buy seeds–any seeds–always know the “official” name.
There’s no doubt that herbs should be part of your survival garden. Your garden should provide both nutritious vegetables and plants for home remedies. Medicinal remedies that may no longer be available anywhere if the SHTF.
I’ve always grown roses, planted trees, and helped maintain my wife’s flower and herb gardens. But I’ve never grown food crops in any substantial way. And that’s going to change, because …
I am a prepper.
Part of my preparedness lifestyle is to always be honing and/or developing new survival skills. Skills that add to my self-reliance and eventually to my self-sufficiency.
