Preparedness Seeds

I get it, we all want to continue to live in a world where there will always be fresh foods within our grasp.  When we run out, a trip to the grocery store is only a short trip away.  What if that weren't always the case?  Even if you have a long-term food supply, how long do you think it would take to start craving fresh fruits and vegetables?  I don't know about you, but it wouldn't take long for my family.  A long-term food supply is absolutely necessary for protein and a variety of other reasons, but the fresh taste and nutrition of food from your own garden is something irreplaceable.  None of us want to think we will ever have to live through a disaster or survival situation, but being prepared is the key.  Our collection of preparedness seeds at SurvivalNecessities will be a great addition to your long-term food supply!  You will be able to enjoy fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs for many years to come!  We even offer a medicinal bucket of preparedness seeds, which has been designed to help people meet their health needs in hard times when the family garden may well become our only resource for home remedies.  

We all hope and pray that disasters never hit too close to home, but we want everyone to be prepared for anything.  Our preparedness seeds buckets provides a missing link in your food storage plan.

Power Outages

We've all been there.  One minute you're sitting in your home, enjoying the comfortable temperature that your thermostat is set to, watching your favorite show, or reading a book by the lamp at your beside, then suddenly everything goes dark.  I don't know about you, but my first reaction to a power outage used to be annoyance.  "Great, what am I suppose to do for the next hour or so until they get this fixed?!"  However, a few years ago here in Kentucky, we had an ice storm that knocked out power in the majority of our city.  At first, we were more annoyed than anything else.  Then, the cold started to creep into our home.  My 18 month old daughter started to shiver regardless of the layers of clothing and blankets she was under.  Things starting getting more than a little scary at that point.

That particular power outage lasted over a week in sub-zero temperatures.  Luckily for us, my parents were one of the few people in the city that still had power.  So, we packed a couple bags, braved the icy roads, and set up camp there for the week.  Things could have been so much worse.  All the hotels in the city were booked solid due to the outages.  What if we didn't have family close by, or with power?  

My family has never reacted to a single power outage the same way since.  We have prepared our homes for such an instance, and have went the extra step to prepare for even worse events.  Here in Kentucky, we have not only experienced ice storms, well over a foot of snow, but also severe windstorms and flash floods.  Some of which we've had just in the past few months.  We have stocked our home with a long-term food supply that can easily be grabbed on the go if need be, and prepared without electricity.  We also have a variety of lights (including flashlights and lanterns) scattered throughout our home.  First aid kits are a must, and we also keep a survival kit in our home and an auto survival kit in the trunk of our car in the event we are stranded at some point.  So many of these items have been put to good use over the years and in our moments of need we have been so thankful to have them.

Power outages and severe weather often come with little to no warning and no guaranteed time frame of when things will get back to normal.  I recommend taking the steps now to prepare and stock your home for such events.  Take it from us, you will be so thankful that you did!
