10 Veggies That Produce the Highest Yield

When it comes to taking care of yourself and your loved ones, food is your top priority.

Unfortunately, too many rely on grocery stores, meal delivery services, and the fragile supply chain for food.

But when worse comes to worst, food will be harder and harder to find.

The people who will survive will be those who know how to garden—and have the means to do so.

And by that, I mean you must have heirloom seeds. Because there will likely come a day when you just can’t get them.

In fact, we’ve already warned about the laws in place that prevent people from sharing seeds, contributing to, or taking from community seed libraries.

This is the government’s way of forcing citizens to buy seeds from the big agriculture seed industry. 

We know from the past few years just how unstable the food industry is. What happens when you can’t purchase seeds from a local store due to supply-and-demand issues? 

Seeds are critical for survival. Think I’m exaggerating?

Consider the Global Seed Vault located in Svalbard, Norway. This global seed vault is also known as the “Doomsday Vault.”

Time Magazine writes, “Deep in the bowels of an icy mountain on an island above the Arctic Circle between Norway and the North Pole lies a resource of vital importance for the future of human­kind. It’s not coal, oil or precious minerals, but seeds.”

As agriculture and technology change, we lose seeds.

The article goes on to say, “Only 10% of the rice varieties that China used in the 1950s are still used today, for example. The U.S. has lost over 90% of its fruit and vegetable varieties since the 1900s.

This is the reason why you don’t need just any seeds, you need heirloom seeds that will provide the most bang for your buck.

Why Now Is the Time to Grow Your Own Food

If you have been following the Survival Scout for any amount of time, you know that the time to start growing your own food was yesterday.

If you are new here, let me spell it out for you: Things are bad. 

And they are only going to get worse as far as the food industry is concerned.

Here are just a few of our recent articles that address alarming issues relating to food:

These are all serious issues that will have a major effect on the food we eat. That’s why it’s critical to get seeds and start growing today.

When disaster strikes and no one can find food, you can rest easy knowing that you not only have fresh produce in your garden, but you can continue growing from the seeds you stored.

Why Heirloom Seeds Are a Must

Now, you shouldn’t go out and buy just any old seeds. You need heirloom seeds.

Heirloom seeds are simply the best type of seeds.

They make it easy to continuously save seeds, meaning you can plant seeds, grow seeds, and feed your family for generations.

We understand the importance of heirloom seeds for survival, which is why we proudly offer the Patriot Seeds Survival Seed Vault as well as 70+ single heirloom vegetable, fruit, and herb seed packets.

The Survival Seed Vault contains 20 varieties of heirloom seeds stored carefully for long-term storage.

10 Vegetables That Produce the Highest Yield

These heirloom seeds are also some of the most efficient varieties. This means you can feed more people with less money and time.

The National Garden Bureau rates vegetables based on their total yield per square foot, average value per pound, and time in the garden.

The following vegetables are rated the most efficient:

  1. Cucumbers Cucumbers are low-maintenance and produce several of the vegetables from just one plant.
  2. Beans Bush beans produce a significant yield, with pole beans producing even more. We offer Blue Lake Bush Bean seeds, an heirloom seed that does not require a pole; but as an heirloom of a pole bean, it is very productive.
  3. Squash Squash produces what some deem as “excess harvest.” For the low price of the seed packet, you get paid back in full and then some. 
  4. Zucchini When zucchini are started from seed and planted directly into the ground, they grow and grow and grow, eventually taking over your garden if you aren’t careful!
  5. Peas Growing peas doesn’t require a lot of space, but you get a big crop for many weeks. 
  6. Tomatoes Tomatoes provide a lot of bang for your buck. You can use their high yields for canning and preserving, in addition to eating fresh. 
  7. Lettuce You can grow a lot of lettuce in a small space. It also grows quickly, allowing you to enjoy fresh salad greens sooner rather than later.
  8. Carrots – Carrots are an easy root vegetable to grow.
  9. Peppers Peppers, whether hot or sweet bell peppers, are known for their good yields and easy maintenance.
  10. Onions Onions are necessary for many home-cooked recipes. They are easy to grow, and it’s much cheaper to grow your own than to buy them at a store.

Many of these seeds are included in the Survival Seed Vault

Those that are not one of the 20 seed varieties in the vault are available as individual seed packets.

While you’re waiting for your garden to grow, get some microgreens and sprouts going. You can grow them right on your kitchen countertop!

Start building your efficient, high-yielding garden today, friends.

In liberty,
