The ability to feed yourself and your family when SHTF is very important, so you may want to learn how to grow your own food now. Gardening does not have to be complicated. Focus on growing fruits and green, leafy vegetables that can be eaten raw or cooked.
Leafy greens, root vegetables and legumes are full of essential nutrients and antioxidants, so grow different varieties and incorporate them into your daily diet to help meet you and your family’s nutritional needs.
Some fruits are also easy to grow without a lot of effort, and they can provide some sweetness to your diet in case you think all the vegetables are too bland.
Growing your own food does not mean that you have to give up flavor. Fruits, in particular, can add a lot of sweetness to your post-disaster diet. However, you have to consider which plants to grow in your garden to ensure that you have food year-round. Start with easy plants and add more as you become more confident in your gardening abilities.
