While we have discussed stockpiling seeds in depth. Something which may have been overlooked, is how many seeds should someone stockpile?
I have come up with a simple formula and would like to know what yall think.
How many seeds do you normally plant to obtain X amount of harvest? Lets say you plant 1 pound of snap beans or purple hull peas. With that one pound and a certain amount of fertilizer you have an idea of how much of a harvest you will get.
How many people are planning on using your place as a long term bug out location?
To keep the formula simple, take the usual number of seeds you plant and double it. Lets say you plant 2 pounds of contender snap beans. Double that for a total of 4 pounds. Doubling is for the extra people you intended to feed.
