Garden Veg' calories
One of the things we try to do as preppers is grow our own veg' so that when TSHTF we already have a good knowledge of what to grow,when to grow it and how!

We also know that having an easily accessible Veg' plot will save us a lot of energy and calorie burning because we wont have to go far to reap our hopefully bountiful harvest!

This is a link explaining how many calories Veg has(per half cup) and what are the best to grow for maximum calorie intake.

One must also factor in other aspects such as fiber content and protien levels.

Beans, though low in calories are high in protien.

Corn is not really a vegetable, it is a grain. As a grain it is extremely high in carbs, which convert to sugars well.

Squash was not listed and should be due to the vitimins and minerals.

The combination of corn, beans and squash will supply all the nutriants and amino acids needed to sustain life. A few shreads of animal protien now and then and one is good to go.

Corn benas and Squash also grow well in association with each other and in adverse situations. They were origionally developed to be cultivated intensely under primitive conditions with no tilling or plowing. The only tools the American Indians had were simple hoes and digging sticks.

Mound up a hill of dirt and plant a few maise kernals, when the corn sprouts plant the beans and squash. The corn will grow tall and the beans will climb the cornstalks, the squash will spread and cover the ground keeping down the weeds. Space these hills about three feet apart in sunny areas.

All three of these vegetables will store long term with only simple drying and safe storage.

Just ask any American Indian. They lived on the stuff for several millinea.

we tend to grow a bit like our tin store..we grow what we eat, also it all depends on your soil and where you live, like i may be able to grow stuff here people in other places cant, or vice versa.

Spot on, BP. The climate in the US is not the same as the UK. We have all sorts of little microclimate areas which does make generalisation a bit trickier.

Exactly Mary, i live in the South West of England which has a milder climate than other places in the UK, our growing season is longer and starts earlier than say someone in the North.
