    Sbsion – i did not know this info about the Donner party and the pine needles! wow! thank you so much for sharing! this makes me feel much more prepped and ready!

    Many of those that survive, turned their wagons over under a pine tree, and for the next three months, record snow falls buried them, the had access to the pine tree, needles, bark and branchess AND, dug up the roots…ice cave with storage. Of course, they had whatever else nature provided but live under these conditions and dozens lived

    sbsion – no – we haven’t moved yet but we purchased our homestead last august. and all of the chips have fallen into place for us to be there for good in spring of 2011 – woohoo for us!
    but you are right – CB is full of pine trees!!! Cleveland is just under 2 hours away from us (it would be shorter if you could drive a straight line between the 2 points).

    did you visit CB?

    thats why i said it was a pretty comprehensive list sbsion…i just wanted to give her start ya know?

    do you know of a site with a “priority” list of sprouting nutrition, ie, say: #1 Alphalfa, #2 Flax, etc………we hear about radish seeds, how about carrot……..seems like the most seeds for the greatest yield, for the least price and greatest nutrition would be a good list

    Lastly?………..the most important ingredient to survival is mental…….why do you want to survive? RU afraid of death? Just want to “hang around”, life is worth living “cause there ain’t nothing else, don’t know, just thought it would be nice, the ripple affect on the family if you didn’t………..hmmmmmm getting ready is a simple as “thinking about it” 😮

    Sbsion….i don’t know of a priority list of sprouting nutrition but now you got me thinking about finding one. cuz yer right – carrot seeds would be the ones with greatest yield, price, etc.

    if anyone knows of such a list can you please post it here? i will go off and see if i can find such a thing…..great thinking sbsion!

    I have to admit – I haven’t tried this yet. Something about being scared to try them if it does work! 🙂

    Shelli – sprouts are really easy. give them a try – if you like fresh, crisp, crunchy greens – you will love sprouts and micro-greens!

    oh crap. getting ahead of myself. sprouts are seeds that you water and get to sprout. no dirt involved. the seeds have different germination rates – some take 5 days – some take 14.

    as for micro-greens – these are seeds that you plant in dirt and plan to clip them for use in food when they have just become seedlings – or have more than their 2 original leaves. for micro-greens – radish, beet, carrot, etc. seeds are grown not to produce the vegetable – but to eat the greens of their newly formed seedlings.

    does this make sense?

    Sprouts you eat BEFORE they get their first “true leaves”. Microgreens you let get past the “sprout” stage, but while the seedlings are still tiny.

    I’d rather wait for the vegetable. More “biomass” for the seed. Plus, I like to save seed so that I have a steady supply.

    Speaking of seeds, my indoor plants are doing REALLY well, and the husb says I can get ANOTHER planting unit (that comes with the seed starting setup for 66 seedlings) once I get back from my trip.
