2012 - The next Great Depression

This video gets me on edge. I guess you need to be to really understand; how late people are if they haven't started preparing with food storage and seeds.
If it is a great depression 1 year of food won't last. We are talking a decade. You need to stock food that will last 3, 4, or 5 years in cans and have 5 years worth of food. Salmon and corn beef both have a 5 year shelf life if you get it freshly canned. Then have a few years worth of long term shelve life stuff like freeze dried, which is much more expensive. That's why you need to stock can foods for the early years.

On top of that you need several years worth of heirloom seeds. One year isn't enough. What if your first year garden didn't produce for you form any reason: Stolen, drought, animals, ect.. You need another change to produce seed for the following years.

Do it now. You have maybe a month before the whole transportation system collapses due to cost of fuel. This won't be like the last depression when most food was grown locally. There won't be any food in the stores when the trucks stop running cross country. Another couple of dollars per gallon, it won't be profitable for the truck to run.

This is what gets me, along with the fact that many do not have the money to stock pile food already. I have a few neighbors that know something will happen, but when they are out of work they can not afford to stock pile. I am 100% positive the government will not be feeding them, so they most likely will die.

Another good thing to keep is pickles, they are good for you can stay good in a cool area for about 10 years. I also like to keep peanuts around, and olives. Green olives will last about 5 to 10 years and like pickles are good for you, and can help fill you up.

Your Destiny is Your future.

Thanks for the ideas. Sounds about right. I'm living paycheck to paycheck right now and it's my mom that is doing all the preparing for possible hard times so I will let her know to look into stocking up on these items.

In somewhat related news, the cucumbers have sprouted, and I just dug the hole for square foot garden number 2 :)

THE END IS NIGH
