The Farmers’ Almanac recommends ideal days for planting and starting seedbeds, based on the phase and position of the moon. SurvivalSeeds4Patriots suggests sticking with open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified seeds in gardens.
Jul 17, 2015 /prREACH/ -- According to the 2015 Farmers’ Almanac, the ideal days for planting crops, flowers and vegetables are rapidly approaching. The company’s Gardening by the Moon Calendar, which is based on the phase and position of the moon, recommends a five-day window (July 21-25) for achieving maximum sowing and planting success.
The calendar suggests sowing grains and forage crops, planting flowers, and planting peas, beans, tomatoes and other fall crops above ground July 21 and 22. It also recommends starting seedbeds with fall cabbage, lettuce, cauliflower, mustard greens and other leafy vegetables July 23-25.
SurvivalSeeds4Patriots applauds the Farmers' Almanac’s focus on seed planting, strongly recommending that gardeners use only open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified seeds in their gardens. Officials from the company remind people they are free to have their own stockpile of non-GMO vegetable seeds to use for planting, growing, harvesting, replanting and storing for the future.
“There is still just so much we don’t know about the long-term effects of genetically modified seeds and crops,” said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. “It’s scary what a high percentage of GMO crops are now filling the landscape in the U.S., and people who are concerned about that would do well to stockpile non-GMO seeds.”
Providing a path to independence and self-sufficiency, SurvivalSeeds4Patriots offers the Liberty Seed Vault. The air-tight metal storage container includes more than 5,400 heirloom seeds from 21 varieties of vegetables, including broccoli, spinach, carrots, squash, corn, tomatoes, onions, beets and zucchini. Each order is accompanied by four guides and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
“After growing and enjoying these nutritious vegetables, gardeners can use the seeds from the harvest for next year’s crops, so they never have to buy seeds again,” Baler said. “This strategy provides additional benefits because it allows people to be less affected by food shortages and increasing food prices.”
Unfortunately, not everyone is able to grow a garden. But after storms such as Katrina and Sandy, as well as many other extreme weather events, many people have learned the hard way that having a stockpile of emergency food is a must.
Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, offers a product line that includes 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits.
