**Giveaway Closed. Congratulations to Linda! And a big thanks to everyone who participated!**

As our economy has struggled to pull itself out of this recession, more and more people are becoming aware of the need to start preparing for even harder times ahead. One preparedness measure that has become increasingly popular is storing “survival seeds“. Simply put, these are all of the heirloom variety seeds that you would need to be able to plant a large enough garden to feed you and your family. Heirloom seeds, unlike store bought packs, are a definite must as these are the only kind that you can save seeds from. These seeds have the potential of feeding your family for generations to come! And they will store for up to 5 years, so you don’t have to use them right away.

When Hometown Seeds recently contacted me and so generously offered to host a “Survival Seed Pack” Giveaway here, I knew this was one product I could put my support behind. I’m always somewhat hesitant placing seed orders with a new company over the internet. After all, you can’t always trust that your money is actually going to a legitimate purchase. Well, I’m here to tell you that Hometown Seeds is a real company that you can trust. I received my package from them in just a couple of days, and everything was just as they said it would be.
