Why Texas Ready?
Most people purchase "emergency seed kits" with very little knowledge about seeds, gardening or a true understanding of what is actually required to achieve food independence.
Of course, any seed bank is better than no bank at all, but there are FIVE important factors you should carefully evaluate.

We also include varieties that will enable you to maximize your full growing season - you'll have a spring, summer, fall, and even a winter garden (depending on your growing zone).
