Smart Gardening

You don't need to be a "doomsdayer" to take your family's well-being seriously.  While living in New England, a freak ice storm hit in October 2011.  For 8 days we had freezing temps, no power, no Internet, no phone, no water, and impassable roads.  We were caught off-guard and completely unprepared for what we had to face.   We made it through eating what we had on-hand and melting snow over an outdoor fire pit for water.  We kept notes of what we would need for another occurrence.  We began to research and learn about how fragile our supply system is, the unreliability of the power grid, and especially how the government is completely unable to help in a safe, respectful, and timely fashion.  Emergencies are not bound by region, race, religion, party affiliation, your attitude, or whether you believe it can happen to you.  We want to share information with you to help you be as prepared as you can be.

Smart food preparedness strategy involves preserved foods as one pillar, and heirloom garden seeds as another pillar, but the third pillar is something almost no one thinks of: powdered plant fertilizers. Powdered fertilizers are made from ground-up rocks and nitrogen sources, and they have an unlimited shelf life. One pound of plant fertilizer can produce 100 pounds of food! Without plant fertilizers, your garden seeds won't produce as much food as you're probably hoping.
