This is not just any ol’ prepper seed pack. This pack has been specifically designed to go into your bug out bag and provide you with the nutrients, calories, and energy you need to survive in a long term SHTF situation.
I have carefully chosen each seed variety based on these 7 criteria:
- Calorie Density
- Nutritional Value
- Shelf Life
- High Yield
- Small Space Growers
- Fast Yield
- Morale Booster
Based on these criteria, I have selected 7 seed varieties that I personally carry in my bug out bag and would like to encourage you to do the same.
A bug out situation can flip from short term to long term quite easily. If you find yourself in a long term SHTF situation, you will have to provide sustenance to you and your family. Although foraging, fishing, and hunting will be staples, growing your own produce will give you consistent results and high nutrition.
These are heirloom seeds which means you can seed save from the produce and plant year after year. You cannot achieve this with hybrid or GMO seeds.
My Bug Out Bag Survival Heirloom Seed Pack will fit nicely into any BOB, weighing in at a mere .90 oz and measures at 8*5*.5 inch.
I have chosen sturdy seeds that will not crush easily, although I do not recommend placing them in the bottom of your bug out bag.
The Seed Variety Lineup:
Butternut Squash, Waltham – High Calorie Density, Long Shelf Life, High Nutrition
Butternut Squash will last one to three months on a counter, making it a great long term survival food. It also packs massive vitamins and minerals and is considered to be a superfood. Butternut Squash grows rather easily and one plant can produce six pounds of squash.
You can prepare butternut squash in so many ways, from roasting and baking, to boiling and even making a soup. It is also delicious and a great morale booster on those chilly winter nights.
Nutrition – 60 cals per cup. 300% Vitamin A, 50% Vitamin C, Calcium 6%, Iron 5%, Magnesium 12% B-6 10%, Potassium 14%
Kale, Blue Curled Scotch – Long Shelf Life, High Calorie Density, High Nutrition
Out of all the greens, why did I choose kale? There are so many good reasons! Kale has the longest shelf life out of all the leafy greens, lasting up to two weeks after being harvested. Kale is versatile and can be eaten raw or cooked and is great in soups. It also has the highest calorie count compared to other leafy greens, and it’s a nutrition powerhouse. It outperforms all lettuces on every count.
Kale can withstand extremely cold temps, down to 15 degrees, making it one of the hardiest leafy greens on the planet.
You can grow kale and harvest the outer leaves, letting the plant produce more leaves over the course of the season.
It is simply a no brainer to pack in your bug out bag!
Nutrition – 30 cals per cup. 130% Vitamin A, 130% Vitamin C, 10% Calcium, 10% B-6, 7% Magnesium, 5% Iron, 9% Potassium
Tomato, Delicious – High Yield, Small Space Grower, Trace Minerals
Tomatoes provide an excellent yield from just one plant – you can expect an average of 8 lbs of tomatoes, and can yield up to 20 lbs in the right conditions!
The Delicious Tomato variety is a heavyweight tomato that grows huge fruits that weigh in about 1 lb a piece. This variety will provide you a bounty of delicious, nutritious and juicy tomatoes!
Nutrition – 20 cals per cup. 10% potassium, 4% magnesium, 5% B-6, 2% Iron, 35% Vitamin C, 25% Vitamin A
Pea, Sugar Ann Snap – High Calorie Density, Nutrition Powerhouse, Easy Grower
Green peas provide so much nutrition and calories, I was actually quite shocked! They also grow easily and are prolific. You can dry the peas to extend their shelf life. Peas are quite versatile and can be eaten raw, sautéed, boiled, or made into a soup. You can also eat the peapod if you harvest them when they are young.
Peas provide a whopping 120 calories per cup along with 7 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein! This is a must have in the survival seed lineup.
Nutrition – 12% Magnesium, 10% B-6, 11% Iron, 96% Vitamin C, 22% Vitamin A, 10% Potassium
White Icicle Radish – Lightning Fast Grower, Long Shelf Life, Trace Minerals
I chose this radish variety specifically because it grows radically fast. White Icicle radishes are ready to be harvested in 25 days, making it one of the fastest growing produce varieties out there! You can eat the greens of the radish as well, so don’t let those go to waste. Let some radishes go to seed and collect the seeds for growing sprouts!
Nutrition – 20 cals per cup. 28% Vitamin C, 2% Iron, 5% B-6, 3% Magnesium, 28% Vitamin C, 7% Potassium
Carrot, Scarlet Nantes – Easy Grower, High Calories, Long Shelf Life, Small Space Grower
Sprinkle these carrot seeds in dirt and you are bound to have a plentiful harvest! I love how easily carrots grow, and you can plant them in tight rows as they do not take up too much space.
A bunch of carrots has a decent shelf life lasting about a month after harvest. You can do so much with a carrot as well; you can eat it raw, sauté, bake, boil, mash, roast, even dry out into carrot chips.
Carrots provide a decent amount of calories and pack a ton of vitamin A.
Nutrition – 50 cals per cup. 200% Vitamin A, 5% Potassium, 5% Vitamin B-6
Hot Pepper, Pasilla Bajio – Morale Booster, Small Space Grower, Bountiful Harvest, Long Shelf Life
I particularly chose this pepper to help boost morale. The Pasilla Bajio pepper is commonly overlooked, yet is one of the most delicious peppers on the planet! This is the pepper that the Mexican culture uses to make Mole, if you are familiar. If you’re not, the flavor profile is rich, deep, smokey, and mildly hot. It is not as hot as a jalapeno and has some mellow heat to it.
You can use this pepper as a spice by drying the pepper and grinding it. You can roast the pepper over an open flame, bringing out its natural rich smoky flavor. Boiled, sautéed, or eaten fresh is also good.
Imagine a juicy deer steak with roasted Pasilla Bajio pepper, YUM! Now that is how to survive!
This pepper has about a 3 week shelf life and can be dried for storage.
Nutrition – 20 cals per cup. 50% Vitamin A, 15% B-6, Iron, 2% Magnesium, 4% Potassium
How I prepare the seed pack
Individual seed varieties are labeled and enclosed in a glassine wax baggy. The reason I use the wax baggies is because the tiny seeds do not stick to the sides; in a plastic bag, the seeds build up with static electricity and become unweildy. Also, plastic baggies can buildup with moisture which can destroy seeds. The wax baggies tend to not collect moisture. And they are also water resistent.
The seed collection is then placed into a waterproof lightproof barrier bag. I seal the bag with heat which makes it airtight.
I then ship your seeds out with USPS First Class for FREE in the USA.
I do include planting directions and seed saving directions into the packet.
If you have any questions before ordering, you can email me via my contact form.
Happy prepping and planting!
