    My question is what 3 crops grow in nuclear war?

  2. CifIcare on April 15, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    Butter beans, collards (or turnips) and my favorite – corn. I never get tired of these and they all freeze really well.

  3. M E on April 15, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    black eyed peas so (beans) totally agree

  4. TexarkanaPrepper on April 15, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    You can survive eating only potatoes and beans

  5. Michelle O'Brien on April 15, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Butternut squash?? Why not regular pumpkin which I imagine would last longer. Also why call it squash which I think of as a zucchini type of vegetable.🤔

  6. Judy N on April 15, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Go for the potatoes. Corn takes up too much space for too little output. And Who ever gets sick of potatoes!!

  7. Vaguepastelle on April 15, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Beans, potatoes, and reefer

  8. Heather Holidays on April 15, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Potatoes, tomatoes and micro greens

  9. 1 2 on April 15, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Beets for sure. kale, walnuts…

  10. Custer244 on April 15, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    granted that potatoes and beans and butternut squash are hearty veggies, however I really like tomatoes for nutrition as well.

  11. Tina J on April 15, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    Potatoes, tobacco and tomatoes. I have chickens (eggs) for protein. Good too know about squash. Thanks.

  12. Eric Cire on April 15, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    Anyone raise Turkeys?

  13. Gary Murphy on April 15, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    I’m Irish so potatoes are a no brainer. I think tomatoes would have to be on there for the sauce and canning factor and probably beans to finish out. Good post!

  14. The Kingdom Weigh on April 15, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    Beans, corn, squash are traditionally grown together.
    I don’t eat any of those but if necessary you could survive on it

  15. William Bunting on April 15, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    I agree with No1 Beans. I said beans as a first reaction to the idea. I agree Potatoes. But I think 2 or 3 would be onions, with a reserve of tomatoes. I live on a boat, so I think in terms of what is possible in a small vertical garden. Thuis would be easy on a houseboat, but mine is a yacht, so I think climbing beans, tomatoes and lettuce are my choices. Foe extra protein it will be mung beans and alfalfa grown inside.

  16. SpaceGhostSupreme on April 15, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    What kind of potatoes though? There are several different varieties.

  17. Brandi WEST on April 15, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    Tomatoes, squash, okra .all you need

  18. mack daddy on April 15, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    I would grow Beans, potatoes and……..face masks no wait I hate phuckin," masks so corn. PS.i put a purple dried cob of corn in the microwave once and it popped .My Word.

  19. Matt McD on April 15, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    3:02 bug on the lens… what do I win 😃

  20. Deborah Lloyd on April 15, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Beans were my #1 before you opened your mouth, kale and tomatoes although sunflowers seem a better choice. I had great luck at drying food when I lived on a commune in the 70’s. Except for the first batch, it blew away. I could pray a stray onion or garlic plant sprouted up in some corner unless I had a wreath of garlic and some dehydrated onion already.

  21. Amarie v on April 15, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Green beans only or another kind of bean?

  22. damien murtagh on April 15, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Potatoes for sure. Being from Ireland I would keep some blue stone in storage (copper sulphate) in order to treat any potato blight. We had a very large famine in the 1800s because of this

  23. BeeKeepersfor02 on April 15, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    how do you store potatoes?

  24. Krp on April 15, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Absolutely beans first, then sweet potatoes and kale. Kale grows forever – you can pick and eat it at any stage, and is so healthy for you. Sweet potatoes are so healthy, are effortless to grow, with abundant harvest and can keep all winter.

  25. Daniel Vargo on April 15, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Potatoes and onions and tomatoes 😊❤️ I just love tomatoes 7 days a week probably cucumbers too as forth because cucumbers and tomatoes taste fantastic together ❤️😋👅😍

  26. Andrea Vlasis on April 15, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Beans all beans , protein , butternut squash , nutritious , good # 3 sunflowers , protein . POTATOES PROTEIN . Easy store easy to grow

  27. Joe Dennehy on April 15, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Potatoes at the top of the list for me, and you could live on them

  28. John Doeseph on April 15, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    onions, potatos, and white button mushrooms.

  29. Curious Lass on April 15, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Great picks! I would have to say Lettuce, beans, peaches for me!!

  30. Anonymike on April 15, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Just remember. You, as a human being, are an omnivore. What this means is that you can live on almost anything. In the natural world, this means that you can live on whatever you can acquire locally, if you can get enough of it. It also mean that if you are going to subsist on what you can grow, whatever you can grow where you live, you can live on, if you can grow enough of it. Excuse me for being so intellectual, but employ Rogerian logic. Don’t try to figure out how to grow what you think you need. Figure how to utilize what will grow locally to create a balanced diet for your family and community.

    I like what this guy is doing. Beans, potatoes and squash will provide a good nutritional foundation. Growing some sunflowers too should be no problem. They will grow around the edges and in places where you do not grow other crops, and they will provide essential oils for your diet. Add in whatever wild food you can acquire, either fish, game or vegetative and you should be in good shape.

    He makes another important point. Grow the crops that are least likely to fail in the area where you live.

    Then there’s your dogs and cats, if you have them. Dogs are pretty omnivorous. Cat less so, but neither are obligate carnivores who can eat only meat. Dogs can live on scraps from whatever meat you acquire, mixed with vegetative matter. Cats have less utility than dogs but they provide companionship too and some people like them. Often, cats can find much of their own food, but it’s a good idea to feed them a little to keep them attached to the home base.

    Another idea is to start keeping chickens or other birds. Birds have limited needs compared to livestock animals and they can be left to scratch for themselves to a great extent, maybe even entirely. You will have to learn how to kill and butcher them but they will enhance your diet and provide scraps for your dogs and cats too.

  31. Starfish21 on April 15, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Sweet potatoes would be excellent source of fiber, starch and antioxidants

  32. James Raske on April 15, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Potatoes tomatoes and sunflowers. Every part sunflowers is edible. The stock can be dried and ground into flower and seeds are high protein.

  33. Linda Moser on April 15, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Beans, tomatoes and potatoes. I was torn between onions or potatoes lol but potatoes won out!! But if I could add a 4th then it would be between onions or garlic lol. I’m thinking of the ease in growing, the filling foods for the stomach, versatility and the nutritional value. l figure if I had to my family could get by with these vegetables and fish or wild meat altho I’m not big on meat lol. And wild berries!! Garlic is great flavor enhancer but also use medicinally too for so many ailments. Easy to grow and store but not readily available first year.

  34. Raymond Ready on April 15, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Good choices. Get busy, for our future is uncertain.

  35. bitsmart on April 15, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    1 beans
    2. tomatoes
    3. bacon

  36. Nathan Hallifax on April 15, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Potatoes r not keto. I would rather starve than break ketosis.

  37. C Self on April 15, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Sharing. Thanks

  38. Michelle O'Brien on April 15, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    With criteria of what I have grown which has been successful for me my first thought was spinach, my second thought was to replace that with silverbeet. Then I’d need to widen the scope and put chicken and rainbow trout on my list.

  39. Víctor Becerril on April 15, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Corn squash, beens

  40. Debbie Polachek on April 15, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    here in Texas, okra grows all summer long when it’s the only thing that I have seen survive the heat.

  41. Jose Lopez on April 15, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    1) Beans (for protein)
    2) Butternut Squash
    3) Potatoes
    – I just Saved you time

  42. Brian Tomes on April 15, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Did a roach just run him over

  43. jewel58s on April 15, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Corn squash beans

  44. Leah's Leaves on April 15, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    I would add something green like Vitamin Greens/Chijimisai, or Purslane, because nutrient density affects the sense of hunger.

  45. Samantha Hardy on April 15, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Potatoes, cabbage and Butternut Squash.

  46. KM on April 15, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Great video, just subbed.

  47. Joe Jankovics on April 15, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    So survivor….where are you?? Obviously American, but where? Failure comes in many forms, survivalists would croak in a heartbeat.

  48. mack daddy on April 15, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Oh hey tobacco would be a good money crop.

  49. Bill Hosko on April 15, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Folks… ONLY 3 to LIVE on. Carrots would best be the third nutritionally, behind potatoes and corn.

  50. Tina on April 15, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    maybe radishes they grow really fast. I like cherry tomatoes because you can grow in the ground or pots, you eat the whole thing, I just wash them and put them in freezer bags and use all winter.
