I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

"A 'bug-out bag' is a portable kit that contains the items one would require to survive for seventy-two hours according to Wiki. This is the backpack you grab when natural or economic disaster strikes and get out of town with what you can carry on your back."
No room for a big heirloom seed bank in a backpack, but wherever you eventually settle, you will need to sow the seeds of life-giving food.
33 varieties of heirloom vegetable seeds; not 20 types like the competition. You save money and get more seed! Why? Because we are not just resellers of seed, but actual farmers of seed. We can control not only the price but the quality/freshness, unlike seed resellers that must take what they are sold and pass it on to you.
Sealed in a space-age mylar bag for absolute freshness, without cramping your bug-out backpack. Soft-sided and easy to pack, unlike other seed banks in hard metal/plastic cans. A space-saving size that is easy to store in your refrigerator or freezer until needed.
Each heirloom seed packet contains exact planting instructions for your success. No simple mailing labels stuck on envelopes like our competitors. We have real seed packets with actual instructions because we are a real seed company!
We do not sell anything but seed and we are EXCELLENT at what we do. After all, we ARE American seed farmers. Our seed is harvested fresh from our farm and kept in climate-controlled, refrigerated storage, unlike survival seed companies operating out of spare bedrooms and hot/humid garages.
You can live without a lot of things, but you can't live without food. Don't be caught without a way to produce more food. You need an heirloom seed bank that is light and portable! You need a Bug Out Seed Bag™
Why Open Pollinated Seeds?
Open Pollinated or Heirloom seeds are what you want if you need to survive! You can plant a seed, let the plant grow up and produce seeds, and then plant those seeds next year and be assured you'll get the same plant. Hybrids and GMO seeds won't do that. Only Open Pollinated and Heirloom will save you and your family in a crisis.
Why a REAL Heirloom Seed Company?
Others out there simply buy seed from goodness knows where and repackage it. We're different - We have a CERTIFIED ORGANIC farm and grow seeds on it. Rest assured that we stand by our reputation - these seeds meet strict federal guidelines. Most other "survival seed" packages out there don't have the same stringent regulations we have to adhere to.
We also sell over 1,500 varieties so we can choose the BEST, most VERSATILE varieties to ensure your gardening success.
As a REAL seed company, we include detailed planting instructions on EVERY seed packet we sell. We also offer a wealth of information on our website, including tips and pitfalls to avoid for growing different types of seed - what "survival seed" company can offer that?
Why Mylar Foil Bags?
Mylar packs flat so it can fit easily in your backpack; triple layered protection from moisture, sunlight, and radiation. We add a silica desiccant packet to help ensure that the seeds will be viable for longer - most other companies just throw the seeds in a sealed bag without regard for the rot/mold factor!
Amazing value because separately these seed packs sell for $2 or more each. That's $68! PLUS the book valued at $5 and the bag itself. You can easily see how $34 is more than HALF OFF!
Great variety of seeds in this pack for an excellent price!
Bug out Bag
I am giving the Bug Out Bag of seeds for gifts to family members. I have had great success with all of my seeds from Sustainable and want to encourage the next generation to get outside and grow!
I'm extremely happy with the product I purchased. It was a great value for the money. The delivery was quick and just in time for fall planting.
The seeds shipped fast. They germinated quickly and we have a great 30 by 70 feet garden full of great produce .
My sister has a greenhouse, so she can plant anything, anytime she wants to. I can't. But I got her this pack of seeds for her birthday and she's raved about it several times stating that she "can't believe how many seeds are packed in there". I'm jealous! I almost bought myself one too, but figured that in my climate & situation I'd better stick with my little old regulars from the hardware store. Boo Hoo. I want to "Bug-Out" tooooooo!!!
