Today we discuss 10 edible plants that are not very common in most backyards or stores and the unique advantages they offer the modern survivalists concerned with producing their own food. Each of these plants offers unique advantages to the backyard and small homestead grower. Advantages such as good nutritional profiles, disease resistance, ease in seed saving, heat tolerance and more.
Note that the seed sources below are comprised of many sources. You can get many of these seeds from multiple providers. I just wanted the opportunity today to expose you today to a variety of solid providers of organic and non GMO seed.
Join me today as we discuss the following unusual edible plants…

This is a shorter show then normal but I think it may be one of the best so far. We need to realize that survival preparedness is best done by blending it with life on a day to day basis. To survive we need to also ensure the survival of the next generations.
I would love to hear your stories about what you learned about from gardening with parents or grandparents and what these lessons mean to you. Or what other lessons do you think we learn from gardening. Remember to make suggestion and comment.
