Survival - Texas Ready Seeds - The Lock Box
The Lock Box is
recommended for up to four adults wishing to supplement their diet with
fresh, nutritious, truly organic produce. Enough seed is provided for a
year-round garden for four adult units, along with an excess to hold in reserve
in case a particular crop does not do well. (Figure a small child or elderly
person as half an adult unit; a teenage boy might be one and a half units!)
Families looking at their seed bank as a food safety net in the event of an
economic collapse or societal disruption should purchase a Safe. The larger bank
will provide a greater cushion in the event of a crop failure.
The Lock Box comes with a laminated Texas Ready Mittleider Gardening Chart and a free copy of The Vegetable Gardener's Bible. This book provides detailed instructions on how to cultivate each variety in your bank (light, water and soil requirements; when and how to plant, etc.). The other books offered on our website are also strongly recommended for those wishing to maximize their harvest and pursue a lifestyle of true self-sustainability.
Be sure to specify whether you wish to purchase a Northern Bank (Zones 3-6) or a Southern Bank (Zones 7-10).
