I was also wanting to save the Heirloom seeds for SHTF options. How long will most seeds last??
Territorial had a booth at one of the garden shows earlier this year. Didn't have to pay shipping, but admission instead. (We were going anyway, so the admission wasn't *extra*.)Anyone know a good place to buy a variety of locally grown heirloom seeds in Oregon, without having to order and pay shipping? In or around the Portland area?
Seeds can last 3-5 years on average. I tend to plant what I'm putting away and harvest a new crop of seeds each season, rotating the oldest out as I have new 'stock'. Remember that only 80% of seeds will sprout in the first place so keep 2-5 times the amount you've slated as your minimum.
You can get heirloom seeds and hybrids that are well suited to our Maritime climate at Territorial seeds. If you are a tomato lover, I recommend Cherokee Purple tomatoes, they look a little gnarly with a green shoulder, but the flavor and texture is the best ever for a tomato. Yield is skimpy.
Also try Matt's Wild Cherry for the most amazing old fashioned tomato flavor in a really tiny tomato.
All the best,
On the same line here it's been my experience deer love thing like clover, carrots, beets and willeven green beans in harsh winters, Planting extra to leave for them will help ensure a healthy population for meat stores. Another off sublect note deer like mineral licks and go absolutely crazy over deer cane and can be bought at a discount right now, I have picked up few bags and put away incase i have to do a mineral bait station to get meat to eat. one bag or bottle will draw deer to the area for a months to come.
