Summer is just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start on your summer garden. Gardening is a great tool for a few reasons, first, you can make it inexpensive, second, you can have fresh crops that you can enjoy or sell, and third, it is a good way to stay prepared. Recently, we added a brand new ReadyWise Emergency item, our Heirloom Vegetable Seed Buckets, which we are very excited about. This bucket has made gardening easy, affordable and can help give your family peace-of-mind. Today we want to talk about different ways you can use the seeds and also give you some suggestions on how to build your own garden box. If you were following along with our ReadyWise “CovIDEAS,” then you may have already read our tips and tricks on how to “grow your own garden,” but if you missed it, it is up on our blog and we have also provided a link below as well. Our seed buckets are IN STOCK now but are limited in supply. You can shop through our ReadyWise website or directly through this link.
What does our Heirloom Vegetable Seed Bucket include?
This bucket comes with 39 different varieties of hand-selected non non-hybrid, non-gmo, open-pollinated vegetable seeds. This would be around $1,500 value at your local hardwood store. All the seeds have up to a 10 year shelf life, so this can last you a few years. It can also be good for trial and error if you are new to gardening because you will have extra if your crops are not successful the first time around. Saying that, if you think that this bucket has too many seeds for your family alone, we do suggest splitting it with friends or neighbors as well. This can also help break up the cost of the bucket. All the seeds come packed in their own UV-radiation resistant, resealable mylar foil bag and each kit contains more than 4,500 Heirloom Seeds (almost 2lbs worth). In total this bundle has enough survival seeds for a 3 acre garden.

How can this give my family peace-of-mind?
Given what is going on in the world, the importance of being prepared has shined it light more than ever. This bucket could help in a survival situation because it would give your family the reassurance of food and these crops could also be bartered and traded for money or different items. Chances are it won’t come to that, but it is always smart to have a back up plan.
