9 Crops to Grow for Food Storage

I began growing my own food with a small, weed filled garden that came with the home I purchased. The first year, I grew a few herbs and some vegetables for fresh eating during the summer. The following year, I thought it would be fun to learn how to can and planted extras to preserve tomato sauce, salsa, carrots, and string beans. I remember organizing the jars on shelves in the basement, taking a step back, and feeling such a sense of pride. I felt so gratified and accomplished that I grew and preserved my own chemical free food to enjoy through the winter. I wondered what else I could grow to get us through until the garden produced again.

The subsequent years involved expanding the garden and improving the soil so I could grow and preserve even more.
