One of the most asked questions I get is, “What vegetables can I grow in containers?” I get asked this because quite a few of us can’t garden because we rent or live in an apartment and only have a small balcony or patio.
The simplest answer is; virtually any type of vegetable or herb should fare well in a container as long as it has enough room. There are also ‘mini’ varieties of vegetables that have been specifically bred to do well in small spaces and look attractive.
I found a great article that shares with us the 15 best vegetables that grow well in containers and pots. Melons even fare well in a container believe it or not… I was surprised by this too.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
