This is a picture of Jackie Clay with her gigantic rhubarb plants. If you haven’t heard of Jackie yet, that’s OK. She is a writer for the Backwoods Home Magazine, and an expert at homesteading skills. I’ve read BHM for over 10 years now, and look forward to every new issue. Please check out her articles, blog and “Ask Jackie” section of the magazine.
With many of us thinking about our vegetable gardening plans, it is great to get ideas and advice from experienced people like Jackie. She is one of my role models and heroes! “Jackie’s Tips for Hardcore Homesteading” by Jackie Clay is well written, including these sections: The Survival Garden, Crops for a Survival Garden, Perennial for the Survival Garden and more.
One of the keys to a Survival Garden (Emergency Garden) is to have heirloom, non-hybrid, non-GMO Preparedness Seeds or Survival Seeds. This allows you to save seeds from year to year, without having to buy more seed. This cannot be done with the modern hybrid seeds.
