I am now considering buying a seed bank, but I am unfamiliar with the best/cheapest options.

I see this on offer from Sams Club which seems like a good deal:


Augason Farm® “Forever Garden” Vegetable Seeds 2-Pack contains 2 vegetable garden seeds #10 (institutional size) cans. The 13 vegetable varieties in the Forever Garden are specially chosen from the highest quality non-hybrid or open pollinated garden seeds available. This means you can harvest the vegetables you grow this year and then replant the seeds year after year – forever!

These seeds have been chosen for great flavor and high yields, and have proven to adapt to almost any region. They are quality “short season” vegetables, and if cared for correctly the seeds may be stored in these containers for many years.

•13 hardy seed varieties
•High quality certified seeds
•Open pollinated
•2 lbs. of seeds in the two cans
•Over 16,000 seeds contained in the two cans
•Can grow up to 4600 lbs. of vegetables
•Detailed growing and care instructions in each can
•Seeds are sealed in bags and sealed in a #10 can
•#10 can has a re-sealable lid to store unused seeds
Augason Farm® “Forever Garden” Vegetable Seeds 2-Pack contains 2 #10 (institutional size) cans. Sealed #10 cans containing oxygen absorbers are the most effective long-term method of controlling the deteriorating effects of light, moisture and oxygen. Each can contains 13 varieties of seeds, which is enough to grow over 2,300 lbs. of fresh produce:

•Green Beans (Top Crop) – 150.0 grams
•Carrots (Scarlet Mantes) – 3.0 grams
•Corn (Golden Bantam 8) – 125.0 grams
•Cucumbers (Boston Pickler) – 4.0 grams
•Cantaloupe (Imperial) – 3.0 grams
•Onions (Red Creole) – 2.0 grams
•Pea (Lincoln) – 150.0 grams
•Bell Pepper (California Wonder 300 TRM) – 2.5 grams
•Romaine Lettuce (Paris Island Coos) – 3.0 grams
•Spinach (Bloomsdale Longstanding) – 4.0 grams
•Squash (Waltham Butternut) – 4.0 grams
•Tomato (Floradade) – 2.5 grams
•Zucchini (Black Beauty) – 3.0 grams

Hey OEM, edit your post with the link.

Looks great. Seeds could be worth their weight in gold when the SHTF!

Just an idea ~
One thing I've done is go down to my local garden shop, Kingwood Garden in this case. They carry heirloom seeds. I picked their brains about what grows best in this area. The result are seeds much more tailored to our area.

I've had good to great results from: spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, bell peppers, and several herbs.

Tried cucumbers and okra with limited results. Not enough bees to pollinate!

Corn was an epic fail. Too many dang trees in our yard. :)
