Gardening When It Counts

Gardening when it counts.... pretty interesting videos. These guys are survivalists, but then if we lose the warm comforter of plentiful oil, we might all be. They seem a little out there, but they bring up a lot of good points on what you might need for your garden if it is ever going to be something that you really need.

One the way home from work, after this had been posted for the first time I was talking to a friend about these clips. I told him that these guys seem a little out there, but it is a matter of perspective. My Grandparents lived like this. They got through the Depression for the most part on their gardens. I imagine they saved their seed. They stored what they raised, and they ate what they stored. This is the way that countless generations of people lived before they had cheap transportation and mechanized agriculture.

8 posts, each 8-9 minutes long. It sounds really interesting, but I don't an hour to watch all of them. Thanks for the links though. I love you
