Heirloom Vegetables, Sustainment Gardening and You

I've posted a link at my "Ewe Remembered" blogspot site about my Heirloom Vegetable garden. This year, I've gone all organic, and all heirloom.

I've a link on the left hand side of my weblog to a site dedicated to providing Heirloom seeds and seed stock; both of which are important considerations to any serious prepper and self-sustainment preparations, because unlike Hybrid seeds and their resulting seed stock, heirlooms are MEANT to produce valid germinable seeds every year. Hybrid, and/or genetically 'enhanced' seedstock and plants do not germinate/propogate very well, at least, not as well as Heirloom seeds/seedlings because of their genetic alternation. If you're serious about prepping, NOW is the time to consider growing your own "Sustainment Garden". Take a look at my sustainment blog for pictures of how well my own sustainment garden is growning. In addition, I've rebuffed the mainstream, and have started an
