Nothing says the tropics quite like the sight of a grove of banana trees. The good news is that these versatile and tasty fruit-bearing trees aren’t exclusive to the tropics, although they do tend to grow best in warm and humid climates.
There are a lot of banana tree varieties, and with the right care, sufficient water, and bright sunlight, you will find a banana tree to be a lovely addition to your home, greenhouse, or a great addiction to your survival garden.
I have always wanted to grow bananas. Now I know this information I think I will give this a try this year. If you decide to grow one too, please let us know over on our Facebook page.
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.
