Guerrilla Gardening

So you preppers in the UK/US/OZ/Finland/ SA would you put all your survival supplies in one place easy to detect and wide open for others to come and steal?

Would you put ALL of your Ammo or food or fuel or water or medical supplies in only one possible location or would you BE WISE AND HIDE YOUR SUPPLIES?

So why do so many of us put all their crop foods in nice neat lines in organised plots all nicely lined up and easy to see and access?

I suggest it makes sense to adapt by limiting the amount of regular planting practices and learn how to hide much of your food crops by

1 Random mixed planting

2 Small well dispersed planting hidden among wild foliage

3 planting in unusual out of sight out of mind locations

4 Hiding mixed food crops among wild natural planting IE hiding your grub in plain view

5 planting where people would not normally look for food iE on flat roof tops, on top of old truck trailers, on traffic islands, on abandoned building plots etc


HIDE at least a few of your essential food crops where scavengers generally would not look.

I only grow rice and since it's deep water rice and in a river nearby it's hidden by reeds and I can harvest forty days worth of rice every twenty eight days with two days to harvest plow and plant. Japanese short rice is very nice stuff.

There's a really good book about survival gardening. It's a pretty neat concept for concealment, but kind of a pain come harvest time. It has merit, but other ways to hide a garden too. For example, my spot is pretty much hidden from the road and any other ingress by the garage.
