It is time in the northern hemisphere for preparing to plant many vegetable seeds and plants. On the brink of potential disruptions that could interfere with the food distribution system, growing your own organic food is now essential.

Organically grown natural foods and super foods rich in antioxidants and enzymes are the essential selections for eating wisely and building good health.

Begin with sprouting seeds indoors for a head start on plants that should not be outside until past the likelihood of frost. Select non-GMO heirloom seeds to sow or start plants. GMO and highly processed food products harm health and engender disease.

Meanwhile, you can prepare the location for planting. This could be in soil when the ground is workable, in containers that can then be placed outside in an ideal location when the time comes, or in straw bales. Feed the soil properly with well-composted matter and minerals for a healthy organic garden.

Plant items now that can grow well in little peat pots, egg cartons, etc., such as lettuce, radishes, kale and other crops that prefer it a little cooler.

At this time when survival could depend on our skills of growing and preserving food and accessing and purifying water, cooperative preparedness in a community support system is very important.
