Win Emergency Survival Seeds from Hometown Seeds

Within the past few days I gave readers a chance to win a package of Emergency Survival Seeds valued at $50 from Hometown Seeds. I asked for comments with info about what each one is growing in their garden this year. I picked the winner using

Thirty-four readers left comments between February 12th and noon Central Time on February 20th. The random number generator chose 23. The twenty-third person to comment (not counting my own comment) was Mike. I’ve contacted him, and he’ll soon receive his prize.

Congratulations, Mike, and my sincerest thanks to all who entered. It’s been great reading all of your comments.

Tomatoes are ever popular, of course. We have plenty of innovative gardeners in our midst, too. I envy those of you in warmer climates than mine in the middle of Missouri.

I wish I could give everyone a prize. But for now let me give you info about Hometown Seeds and the Emergency Survival Seeds they offer. You get a lot for a good price.

By the way, I don’t make anything from your purchases at Hometown Seeds, but if you let them know you heard about them from DestinySurvival, perhaps they’ll offer another seed package as a contest prize in the future.

  1. I am growing tomatoes and broccoli this year. I can the tomatoes and make everything from spaghetti sauce, salsa, whole tomatoes, diced tomatoes and tomato jelly. I usually just freeze the broccoli.

  2. We grow lots of tomatoes. We put up around 250 quarts of juice every year plus pickled peppers, onions, cucs, etc.

  3. I planted some Garlic this weekend in our raised beds. I’ll soon plant some tomatoes inside to get a jump start on the season.

  4. Because of our chat afew months back and my promise to YOU, John, I’m definitely putting in my first black-eyed peas!

    I’m also planning to get out of my confort zone and try cover crops: green manure, clovers, vetch, amaranth, borage, comfrey, etc etc. I did plant a little buckeye last year, with inconclusive results.

    I’m also a huge fan of Marjory Wildcraft, and want to follow her advice to put in “moringa” and “leucena” …whatever the heck they are !?

  5. We will be growing tomatoes,squash,carrots,radishes,onions and beets this year. Grew mostly the same last year for our first garden and it did pretty good.

  6. this is the year when I will be getting my 9 year old twins dirty in the garden. they will love this I am sure, especially when they get to pick the vegetables at the end of the season. we will plant potatoes, tomatoes, and lots more !!!

  7. It’s wonderful to see all of these great comments. Thank you, and keep up the good gardening work.

  8. I’ve got garlic growing now. I’m going to be planting Hutterite beans which I fell in love with this winter. And I’m planting a “ratatouille” garden – eggplants, zucchini, peppers, onions, tomatoes.

  9. I’ve already started with potatoes, carrots, radishes, beets and onions. Started turnips but they never grew….. this is my first attempt at growing anything so IMHO it’s going well!

  10. i love your site. growing tomatoes alot of other vegetables in garden. for local food bank. loren

  11. We have grown a garden for several years. Emergency seeds have been one of the prepping items that I cannot seem to buy–my husband was laid off of work early last year and money is tight. Keep up the good work on this sight.

  12. Putting in Beets, spinach, turnips, and carrots right now. Going to be puting in tomatillos, okra, tomatoes, potatoes, and corn once it has warmed up a bit more.

  13. We will be planting tomatoes, peas, onions and spinach. We will also be turning some of our yard into orchard planting peaches and pears

  14. Just bought a fifty pound sack of Yukon Gold seed potatoes. In this part of Texas we plant them around Valentine’s Day.

  15. Hello John Wesley Smith and all at Hometown Seeds,
    First of all, thank you for the opportunity to win some of your survival seeds.
    If all goes well as I suspect it will, this years garden will flourish with a variety of beans (one of the best and most perfect survival foods one could have). It will also accommodate an array of herbs (for both medicinal and seasoning), as well as corn (including cobs for eating and flour types) and an assortment of root vegetables (good, hearty and long keeping). Of course what would my garden be without the traditional tomatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, lettuce and peppers (a compliment of hot and sweet). This year I’m looking into cabbage and Brussels sprouts as well (really not as bad as some think), but only time will fully tell.
    Whatever is yielded from this year’s growth, I’m positive it will be substantial, more than appreciated and fully enjoyed.
    Thank all of you at Hometown Seeds for your encouragement, help and support…Not to mention great goodies for the gardener and their gardens.

  16. I hope to really work on herbal health this year. So oregano and basil, rosemary, peppermint, and just whatever I can think of. I really haven’t tried much because we live in the desert but it is time.

  17. I’ll be growing Jerusalem artichokes, several lettuces, and hot peppers of all kinds just to name a few.

  18. Right now, in AZ, my garden is at it’s peak so I already have an abundance of lettuces and salad greens, pak choi, spinach, collard greens, chinese mustard, swiss chard, radishes, red and white onions, beets, carrots, quinoa, radicchio, peas, cilantro, dill, parsley, fava beans and artichokes. I am already in the planning stage for next season!

  19. I will be growing tomatoes for canning. Spinach, Onions, peppers, I want to can sauces, salsa, etc. I am a big preper and supply my food choices with different things. I would love to have different varieties for my garden this growing season. Thank you.

  20. I plan on getting some wheatgrass and other stuff going in my kitchen and other ops in other parts of my apartment. I aim for a decent food source supplement, and maintain survival skills in the process.

  21. Not sure if I am going to get to plant a garden here this year, but would love to grown a little bit of everything.

  22. Living in the extreme south, my gardening is a bit different! Right now, I am HARVESTING green beans, lettuce, broccoli, carrots, and asparagus. Tomatoes and peppers, too! For spring, I will try to beat the bugs and plant squash and zucchini now. I also plan to put in some early sweet corn next week—just to feed to the chickens! Now, I will probably keep a few of the prettiest ears for human consumption, but most will supplement the egg layers here on the farm! In March, I will plant okra and field peas. Those are about all I can successfully grow in sunny South Florida during the warmer part of the year.

  23. New Zealand spinach, for greens during the hottest part of summer when everything else has bolted.

    Husk/Ground Cherries, because they are the most amazing fruit ever. The flavor is indescribable.

    Goji Berries, as a multivitamin for what happens next.

  24. Different types of purple hull peas and butter beans and peas along with okra, squash, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants are a mainstay of our gardening. We have a heavy clay soil that stays too wet when it is rainy and then gets hard as a brick when it is dry. We have been adding leaves and turned under cover crops to make it better but it has been slow.

  25. planning garden for self use , will share leftovers- have Kumato tomatoes started in pots for early planting- I know what is coming upon us just dont know when.The weather here in beautiful Ohio has been horriable for farmers and home gardens. too much rain- not enough rain etc. plan to grow peppers mild an hot–tomatoes- cabbage- lettuce-potatoes–beets–pumpkins- sunflowers- and a few other’ hope weather holds a great promise here.

  26. I’m so excited about aquaponics gardening. I’m volunteering at a garden right now to learn how to do it. Besides the aquaponics, I am eager to try sorghum and black sesame seeds and even peanuts in the garden.

  27. It’s that time of year! Time to start the seeds indoors. I need to hurry and win this, so I can get my seeds going! :)

  28. This year we will be planting 1/4 acre with every type of non-gmo seeds and plants that we can find. As harvest is being done all product will then be dehydrated and/or canned. No one should rely on a freezer. After all, what will happen if the power is lost.

  29. This year it will be tomatoes, peppers, onions, and a lot of different herbs. Our space is limited, and the summer heat is something to take into account,our first “crop” is about ready to plant.

  30. just moved unsure of condition of the ground. i will be adding sand and manure to till in. then tomatoes, eggplant, radishes, peppers, variety of beans, and will try seeds to plants this year (heirloom variety)

  31. We will be planting Tomatoes, Peppers, squash, Potatoes, Peas and Carrots this year. We can and freeze a large portion of our crop every year and also give some away to friends and neighbors.

  32. I will be planting tomatoes this year as the tomatoes you buy in the store are tasteless and have no nourishment.

  33. We have potatoes, lettuces, radishes, onions, carrots, turnips, beets, sweet potatoes, and what seems like every herb in existence on our list!

  34. Still trying to get my greenhouse running and want to do a combination of aquaponics & traditional container gardening.
