Multiple Streams of Foods

As part of having multiple streams of food, you’ll want to plant a kitchen garden to help prevent you from running out of food. You can supplement the food you store in your Four Corners Pantry with a supply of fresh vegetables, herbs, and more from your garden. However, how can you rely on your garden if you live in an area with a lingering drought?

You can do some research, such as with your local extension service, to find out which plants grow the best in your area and which are drought-tolerant. In our state, the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension service provides a wide variety of information to help all growers, from local gardeners to larger farms.

Drought Tolerant Seeds

Fortunately, Survival Garden Seeds has helped us do the research by identifying the best heirloom seeds that do well when there’s not much water:

In my Survival Garden Seeds to the Rescue video, I review their drought-tolerant vegetable seed collection, which includes:

  • Bell Pepper, Rainbow
  • Carrot, Scarlet Nantes
  • Chard, Fordhook Swiss
  • Eggplant, Long
  • Green Bean, Contender
  • Kale, Red Russian Kale
  • Melon, Hale’s Best (cantaloupe)
  • Sorrel
  • Tomato, Cherokee Purple
  • Watermelon, Sugar Baby

I was surprised to see watermelon and cantaloupe in this collection, but they’re smaller versions of the melons, and these varieties hold onto the water they can get.

Additionally, I talk about how sorrel has done well for me in the hot and cold extremes we can get in central Texas. I also always enjoy planting green beans, and I show you how to make crisp pickled green beans in my step-by-step water bath canning tutorial video.

So browse Survival Garden Seeds‘ drought-tolerant seed collections and all the other high-quality seeds they offer. I’m sure you’ll find some seeds you can use now or store for your next growing season in your Prepper Pantry.
