Storing food is great, but are you storing seeds and are they heritage seeds? If not you should be. Even if you have 10 years supply of food storage, a few fresh vegetables and fruits will taste good. Plan ahead now, plant a few fruit trees and stock some seed. Get to know your garden area. Do you know what the soil is like? Have you dug it up? Is it good soil that you can work with a shovel or is it solid rock? What grows well in your area?
Do you have the necessary yard tools? Are they good quality, US made or cheap foreign junk? Do you have at least two of everything? Remember the old saying “one is none, two is one”. Something will break. Try gardening without power tools and find out what you are short off. I will talk to my father who has gardened a lot by hand and get him to make a list of the tools he considers important. Right now, I can tell you the first item he will name is a spade. Do you have one?
