I am often asked, how much work is it to grow your own food? The answer is, it is not that much work if you are worried about eating. With a little planning and a little bit of elbow grease, you can grow food almost anywhere in the lower 48. I live at 9,000 ft in the Rocky Mountains and I have found a way to supplement my family’s food supply in the spring, summer, and fall. Of course, I have to do with with a greenhouse. The weather is just to extreme where I live.
With a little bit of planning, this spring could be the year you finally plant your survival garden. I found some free guides online that do not require you to enter you email address (click here) and here are some links to resources that are publicly available to you (click here). My advice is to start small and start with a conversation with some of your neighbors who grow gardens. Find out what grows well in your climate.
If you live in an apartment in the city, you can either find a meet up online, check out some youtube videos for apartment gardens or just search the web. Of course, everyone is trying to sell something on most of the videos so buyer beware as you search the net. Check out my video below (I do not sell anything!!!), like our channel when you have a chance and maybe stay tuned to The Survivalist Podcast as I am going to be a guest very soon with more survival gardening tips.
