Non-GMO, open pollinated seeds are not sterile and can be harvested from year to year. With an economy that seems to be dragging its feet when it comes to recovery and a long list of disasters that have struck in recent years, people have come to realize that they need to start being more self-reliant. And when you stop and think about all the disasters, conflicts, and economic crises that are happening all around the world right now, it's not a surprise that emergency preparedness is a major issue.
At The Ready Store, we try to do everything we can to make sure our customers are ready for anything life can throw at them. This includes selling emergency supplies, food, and water, and providing instructions on how to use these products. We are constantly trying to expand our stock of survival-related products so we can better serve you as a company. That's where SEEDSAFE - MegaGarden 7-Acres comes in.
The MegaGarden™ is meant to be your backup in almost any disaster or economic crisis. It's for those times when food is scarce or money is tight, or if you just want to learn how to be more self-reliant and live more organically. It contains a full 7 acre's worth of open-pollinated, non-GMO seeds that can be grown naturally. Open-pollination means that these seeds, unlike the hybrid seeds that most retailers sell, aren't sterile—you can harvest seeds from your crops and use them over and over again. So you aren't just buying enough seeds to fill a few acres for one year—you're buying a garden that can last beyond your lifetime.
And this isn't just a garden of very basic, bland foods. To prevent boredom and promote a balanced diet, our MegaGarden™ contains 27 different types of seeds, including tomatoes, lettuce, broccoli, watermelon, pumpkins, jalapeños, and many others. There are also different varieties of some of the produce, like the Rutgers tomatoes, which are good for slicing and the Cherry tomatoes (good for sauces or eating whole), or the different types of lettuce, squash, and beans In the end, you'll have a whole garden full of produce that can be used in thousands of different recipes!
Every one of these seeds has been dried carefully and placed in triple-sealed Mylar pouches so they will retain their nutrients and ability to produce food, but so they will also last many years in storage. The MegaGarden™ has almost 300,000 seeds, so you will have more than enough room to make some mistakes but ultimately produce a large harvest. This much food can be used to feed your family, generate extra income, trade for other goods, can and store for winter, and harvest more seeds from so you can do it all again the next year!
Due to its special packaging, the MegaGarden's heirloom seeds can last up to 5 years (although we have had customers tell us that they've used these seeds after 10 years of storage, and everything grew very well!), so all you have to do is purchase them once and then store the seeds away for the day when you really need them. And each of these Mylar pouches is snugly tucked into our food-grade 4-gallon plastic container for easy access and easy storage. It has a lid that, once you snap it on, it's not going anywhere—unless you tear the tab. In that case, the lid has a groove where it bends and gives you easy access to all your seeds.
Other companies sell emergency seeds that claim to have a long shelf-life but they only wrap their seeds in one layer of Mylar, or they say they have properly dried their heirloom seeds yet don't have the proper levels of moisture to keep the seeds alive. We make sure you know exactly what you're getting when you buy our product by putting a label with the packaging date and location, germination rate, weight, and purity of the seeds provided right on the triple-layered Mylar pouch. Each of these pouches can also be resealed with the sturdy zip-lock top, so it will be easy to re-store harvested seeds in these already-labeled pouches! SEEDSAFE - MegaGarden™ also comes with a planting guide, so you'll know exactly when and where to plant your seeds, plus 27 extra pre-labeled Mylar pouches so you'll be able to easily store away the seeds you harvest every year!
If you live in an inhospitable climate, or are worried about short season climates, you don't need to be. Many of these seed varieties were chosen in part because of their recommendation for their ability to adapt to different regions. So while the growth rate of the produce will vary, you will be able to provide food for you family in almost any climate. And since these seeds were also chosen because of their high germination rate, growing your garden will be even easier than you think. Finally, we chose these seeds because they have high nutrition density—this means that eating a variety of these seeds can keep you healthy and give you the vital nutrients you need every day.
