Vegetable Days to Harvest

Too often, we might think we are well prepared, but we are not.  A key part of being prepared is having a sustainable food plan like covered in the Prepper Handbook on Amazon Kindle.  In addition to knowing the Planting Dates, we need to know how long we will have to wait before our garden starts providing us with food.

Building your food stores the right way starts with enough canned and dried foods to last 12 months which allows time to plant our garden, harvest, prepare and preserve food for the winter.

Planting some foods that harvest early could be the difference between surviving and starving after a hard winter.  Here are the Days to Harvest for a long list of foods you should consider. The ones listed in red are Heirloom varieties that you can save seeds from and grow them again next year.  Seeds from hybrid varieties often will not reproduce.   Having both may be a good idea, but they must be planted far apart to prevent cross pollination as Bees will carry pollen great distances.  Of course, having a Green House for year-round food and/or Aquaponics represents an advanced level of preparation that most do not have and a much more reliable plan.
