    @wahahn Very True. All those vitamin/Protein drinks are perfect for stashing away. It’s a quick meal when you need it. Thx for the comment

    @succeedblog – You can keep a couple cases on Ensure on hand too if you’re worried about a lack of vitamins and minerals…

    Well Planned! Yes, always good to have food, alcohol or other materials for bartering.

    @succeedblog You’ll need a large variety of supplies which will give you the needed vitamins. Also, you can put vitamin containers in you storage too.

    Is it possible to get enough vitamins and nutrients with this?

    @FreedomMeister thank you. When I read of people planning to barter food, water, guns, ammo, silver and other things you may need or want to keep (i.e. silver) I silently yell “arrrrggghhhh!!”. During the first few days of a huge ?? you probably won’t know how long it will last thus you won’t know what you have extra to barter. Plus the first few days valuables like silver when people have no food/water wouldn’t bring much. Maybe an ounce of silver for a gallon of milk. Not good.

    I have three groups of food. #1 food/water fm Super Walmart no cook sealed date codes 2+years+meets published nutritional standards.Have enough food/water for 9 mo.Why no cook? Smell/smoke attract “visitors”. #2 lg qty 3600 calorie ER bars fm Amazon. Hard as brick but melts in mouth. ALL required nutrition. 20 year life. #3 is barter.Lg qty 55 ml vodka airline size btls (NO plastic!) Luksusowa brand is cheap. And many jars honey. Both last 50+yrs.

    @ForcedAgenda Great work and that’s the correct way to keep the food in Airt Tight Storage Containers and also vaccum sealed. The buckets with lids are a must and we always date our supply. Many people forget to rotate. Thanks for the comment.

    I bought 6 gallon, plastic buckets with lids, mylar bags and lots of rice, beans, red winter wheat and even soy beans. Sealed this stuff up in the mylar, placed them in the buckets, placed the lids, dated them and consequently I have safe food storage for wtshtf. Thanks the video, certainly a topic that needs to be discussed more.

    I really like the set up, and agree with you on that everyone should have the knowledge of gardening. It’s a lost talent. However saying this is your survival garden in case something happens, I have trouble believing. What makes you think your neighbors will be so kind as to leave you alone when they get hungry. You’d wake up in the morning and your front yard would be empty. lol. I can’t even grow a garden in my front yard as of now without people taking from it.

    I watched this video about 3 month ago when i had a lawn and swing in my garden. Now i got a raised bed, containers and a greenhouse with all sorts of things growing in them and ALL edible. And more raised beds going up next year.

    I wanted my 5 year old daughter to know how to grow her own food and she loves getting her hands in the soil and planting the seeds for me. Had to make her a dibble to get the depth right but she knows what a dibble is now and knows how to make one too :)

    Good job.

    Growing so much out in the open, if something SHTF happens……the neighbors are going to raid that garden. =/

    in case of an emergency neighbours will be happy with you, they will be able to take anything they want from your garden.

    Question… when all heck breaks loose, what is going to stop your neighbors from coming across the street and taking it?

    is the Chickweed you are growing just the normal weed that grows almost everywhere? or is it a domestic variety? thx

    Wow, I’ve thought about converting our front yard to garden style but was so worried about people stealing our veggies or it looking odd. Your place has a unique look to it, and I also noticed none of the ‘recognizable’ veggies are on the outskirts so less chance of theft. thank you for making the video.

    I love your videos. I live in central Florida on the coast and I would like to plant Kale trees. Where do I get the seeds?

    WATER;in an emergency water suply will be crucial and a learning how to maximize that will take just as long as learning sustainable gardening. As for security, community assist with common interest will be key. Relocate might be an option if things are bad enough.

    God im fucked, economic collapse is just around the corner and all i have is 7 ounces of silver. no garden and not enough money to stock up. any tips?

  34. coldfire2227 Says:

    Man you better guard that garden well. If your starting a garden right in your front house there will be some hungry people that will check out your crops. Dont forget the mauders and raiders that might destory your plants. These are all things to consider while trying to substain yourself in a survival situation. I would suggest getting some security cameras at any choke points to your garden. If I were in your shoes I would grow that garden in your backyard or in a contained area next year.

    It’s terrible how almost everybody forgot how to grow their own food. Even during the Victory Garden days during WWII, so many more people knew how to garden. Now we have to look our grandfathers and great-grandfathers (and mothers) and ask how they survived as kids. I’m always amazed when I hear my wife’s family, who were all farmers, talk about how they had and ice-house and root cellars and how much work they did just to keep food on the table.
    Me, I started square foot gardens this year.

    rottweilers? maybe…. I got a lab that would just beg for attention as they steel everything! :)

    @Digitalmanne get two rottweilers like me. They will protect you, your family, and your property.

  39. Digitalmanne Says:
    June 2nd, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    So….. How do you protect your garden? Even in a rural area people raise a garden, and then the lazy people come by at night and steal what they want. If people see what they want they take it. If people are hungry, how will you stop people from stealing your hard work?

    @growingyourgreens all you need to support your fat intake is some sunflower, flax, and if your smart…hemp seed. sprout’em or flour them, and by all means, never cook them over 120′ F. those three provide all the daily essential LA, ALA and protein you need. good day and nice front yard by the way!!! five stars.oh by the way , go hydro and you will harvest in half the time (provided you veg for 24 hours in&outdoors) if you can maintain your environment…it’s easy…overgrow and overflow

  41. phantomcreamer Says:

    @growingyourgreens You are right. However, I would say that nuts and grains are also very important nutritionally because of the Essential fatty acids. There are some fruits high in fats, but not they don’t have the correct ratios. In fact hemp seed has the perfect profile of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids.
