Here is our basic heirloom seed kit. It has 27 varieties of 19 different vegetables. We simply dropped out the less common vegetable seeds. It contains almost 3 pounds of non-hybrid seed. These are all dried to the optimum moisture content and packaged in a hermetically sealed #10 can. It can, therefore, be frozen to maintain good germination for 50 years. This kit comes with a small book on heirloom vegetable seed saving.
50 Year Heirloom Seed Kits
This 50 year long term storage seed kit contains a double supply of Heirloom, non-GMO seeds for at least six people. Experienced gardeners can produce healthy food for 10-12 people. EACH year’s kit consists of three #10 cans filled with 68 heirloom varieties of 36 non-GMO vegetables. You get three full cans for each year—a total of Six cans of Heirloom seed.
Included in this Heirloom seed kit are the two books listed below.
We call this our Golden Kit. It is worth its weight in gold! This is a very generous kit. Our gardening experience has taught us that low production can have many varied causes; poor soil, lack of moisture, wildlife (rabbits, moles, mice, turtles, goats, chickens, cattle, squirrels, etc) insects, early or late frosts, too hot, too cold, etc. Therefore, we wanted to give you enough so you had at least enough seed to plant a second crop, if time allowed.
This highly practical book contains all the information you need to successfully grow more than 50 common vegetables. There are specific step-by-step instructions for each crop: soil requirements, variety selection, raising transplants, direct sowing, protection, harvesting, seed saving, and storage.
