I told you that seeds are in big demand. Once you have your heirloom Survival Seed Vault you won't need to worry anymore about the price or availability of seeds. The Survival Seed Vault comes with instructions on how to save the seeds for the crops you grow so you can have a supply for years to come. I still say that good quality heirloom seeds will be the greatest barter item you can have in your possession once it HTF. Check out the story below.

Vegetable growers may find this year's seed supply sapped as the arid economy spurs a rush of first-time farmers. New planters seeking relief from food costs are causing some local farm supply stores to see shortages this spring. Store operators said that planters should start buying seed as soon as possible. Pennine Farm Supply and Country Store owner David Tatum said he is already out of some types of potato, sweet corn and stringless green bean seeds, though he has plenty of other seeds in stock. "Demand is definitely up," said the owner of the Spring City store. Meanwhile, owners of Bart's Feed and Seed in Dayton said they have only been able to get 10 percent of the stock they have in the past. Employees at both stores said one of the main reasons for the increased demand is the emergence of first-time planters, mostly people trying to save money while the economy flounders. "I think they're concerned with the economy," Tatum said. "In our area there have been a lot of layoffs." He said he's seen an increase in first-timers who work at local companies, particularly La-Z-Boy in Dayton and Huber Engineered Woods, LLC, in Spring City who have let workers go. Planting your own vegetables is often less expensive than purchasing produce at grocery stores, Tatum said. "They can get more out of that same $100 than they can at the grocery store," Tatum said. Bart's operators agreed. "You can raise your own stuff, can it freeze it and save it over the winter." Leonard Thomas is a frequent shopper at Bart's and has planted his own garden for several years. He said it's been nearly impossible to find sweet corn and cabbage this season. He also thinks new planters are the reason for the shortage. "More and more homeowners are starting to grow their own vegetables," he said. Pennine's owner said the increase in supply isn't the only factor involved in the lack of seeds. Flooding in the mid-west last year also ruined crops, decreasing available supply this year, Tatum said.
