The perfect survival garden is one that is tailored to meet the needs of your family. What you choose to grow may be different than your neighbor depending on your individual needs and preferences. If no one likes Swiss chard, don’t grow it. Grow the foods that your family will eat and enjoy.
Design your garden to meet your unique needs, and to supplement the foods that you have stored. The garden that you plant should take into account your family food stores. Do you have a large stash of calorie-dense staples such as wheat, rice, beans and oats that you are just supplementing? Or is your survival garden your only food source?
In this video, we share our top choices for survival garden crops. The best crops for a survival garden are those crops that are easy to grow in your backyard and meet the nutritional and caloric needs of your family. Plan to grow a variety of crops throughout the growing season.
