Survival Garden Crops To Grow In Canada. MUST WATCH. | Gardening in Canada

Gardening in Canada is an extreme sport and so when growing a survival garden crop in Canada it can be hard to decide exactly what to plants. But it in this video we take survival cropping to the next level by analyzing the MANY different aspects of the survival garden crops we have chosen. The survival garden crops picked are based off nutritional value, plate appeal, reseed ability, highest yields and of course storage. Because gardening in Canada is a short season we need to consider totally days to grow but also how it will store indoors over the winter.

    You should also do a video when you include opportunity and monetary costs. Potatoes and carrots are literally dirt cheap but cherry tomatoes are pretty expensive.

  2. Mary Egerton on May 13, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    I chose cabbage. I love sauerkraut and cabbage freezes well. It stores well too. Garlic and onions store well too.

  3. Grafting Tactick on May 13, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Great content, yes I hit the subbed button, hi from Australia 👍💕🍓🍓🍓🍓keep growing

  4. 0Stella on May 13, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    I’m so glad I found your channel!! I’m a huge fan of spaghetti squash. It grows prolifically and reliably here in Edmonton. I haaate carrots….I guess I’ll give them a to again… Lol. So glad you have beets,I adore them. I love making beet humus and pink pancakes

  5. Staying Golden on May 13, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    What? No squash?

  6. B A on May 13, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Peas got nothing on lentils protein wise 🙂 fibre too. Per volume lentils 2x protein and fibre. Also, dry lentils store for years.

  7. Lola Simmons on May 13, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    I am super happy to find a great channel in Canada showing me how to grow vegetables in Canada. Thanks so much and I am a new subscriber.

  8. Adrianne Escarian on May 13, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Zone 6b represent 🙂

  9. SirenoftheVoid on May 13, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Hello Ashley! i’m a fellow Canadian who, through some spiritual guidance, awoke to her love of local natural food. I hope to discover more of my home country’s natural resources and crops and hopefully grow my own one day. I live in an underground appartment these days. hoping to know of food i can grown inside 🙂

  10. Gideon van Eeden on May 13, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    We’re in Regina, Saskatchewan. Looking forward to starting a backyard garden

  11. Susan Supino on May 13, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    I’m a new gardener-southern Canada. QUESTION: What month should I start plants in the house window & what month is good to plant them outside?

  12. Michael S on May 13, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Thanks, Didn’t think about beets. Make sure to get a non hybrid zucchini or next years might not taste too good from its seeds.

  13. Gloria Williams and 2 black cats on May 13, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    I live in Washington state but love Canada and my parents lived in Canada before I was born and I visit when I can but I found your site and 😍 love it.

  14. Bulldog Love on May 13, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Yesss Canada! thank you for this looking forward to your channel! 😀

  16. bingomole74 on May 13, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Parsnip. It stores in the ground and tastes great after a freeze.

  17. My dear on May 13, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Butternut squash great for storage also

  18. Vivien Dymond on May 13, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Hi, I really enjoyed your video about extending old soil from containers. Found it very useful. I found your video above very interesting, but as a Diabetic, beets, carrots and potatoes are not my first choice as they have many carbs. So I was wondering what you would suggest. I did grow zucchini once and was amazed at the success. I looked at your planting guides on Etsy and thought they were lovely. But I am a little confused by the first line on the Calgary, etc. planting guide. It says that on a cold summer day plant plant cold frames, etc. Is that what you meant to say?

  19. P VP on May 13, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    I was hoping someone in the comments would know what inoculating peas is, but I give up, I’m gonna go check google …

  20. Carollori on May 13, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Just returned from On back to Sk can’t wait to garden. I think I would add kale to survival crop but I’ve not grown it here. In On in over winters. I could dig it out of snow and use. It self seeds. Almost too much. And it has a variety of uses. 👍🏼👍🏼

  21. Debra Martell on May 13, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Hello from Ottawa, love your videos 😊 Another survival crop is sunchokes also know as Jerusalem artichokes, easy to grow and appear to be pest free and you can cook them like potatoes, roasted, mashed, fried etc. keep the videos coming they are awesome 🦋🌺🐝

  22. Shie H. on May 13, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    If you have the space, I’ll toss in Rhubarb, Asparagus, Onions and garlic.

  23. king james488 on May 13, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    there isn’t enough time in the growing season to survive off a garden… you’ll be living off pickles 6 months out of the year.

  24. J Borcz on May 13, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    What about zone Zero?

  25. NordeggSonya on May 13, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Thanks! I am in Rocky Mountain House Alberta. We are also the hail capital of North America. I have a 30 ft by 8 ft hoop house. One 40 x 8 hoop house and a portable car shelter 10 x 20 that is kitted out as a greenhouse with pro plastic and doors. With that heat wave we had this year my peas died, had to replant. I still have things growing now in the hoop houses. I am going to try to add a few layers of plastic inside and try compost heat this year. I want an early start to the coming year!! Thanks for the good list of food that store well.

  26. Seath1985 on May 13, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    I could be rong here but carrots need to gore 2 years to get seeds do they not

  27. anonymous anonymous on May 13, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Hi Another Canadian! Do you ever feel like an alien minority on here?! I hope you discuss flowers, not just veggies and cover all the provinces. I hail from Alberta, quite a while ago. Spent most of my life in Ontario and so I am asking for help with a favorite flower, FOXGLOVE. I know, I know, every garden center warns me: hard to grow…impossible for me. Another Canadian, BRUCE COCKBURN, personal hero, and a wonderful folk musician wrote a lively little ditty, called Foxglove- I played that tune! Tried to encourage Mother Nature…used Mir.Gro, better soil, less water, more sun, more or less everything. Bought at several different nurseries- to no avail. Simply won’t live and thrive…any suggestions ( I want all colors next to my hydrangeas- they die too, next door neighbor hasn’t had luck either…You go onto Pinterest and roam around England- seem to grow like weeds there! ( my weeds- the "wild flower" type, are thriving by the way) Since we Canucks are known for our optimistic pluck! I am not giving up- too late for this year- 2021 but next spring…
    Nice to meet you. I subscribed- are you pictured in Alberta or Saskatchewan? Namaste Z. ( off to Bruce C. great start to a day, dose of Cockburn!)

  28. Joe Stone on May 13, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    this aged well just sub’d from bradford

  29. Debra Martell on May 13, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Hello from Ottawa, we are -29 today 🥶!!! So dreaming about getting outside in the Springtime and creating gardens 🌱🐝🌷 I would plant sunchokes as they will return every year on their own, even though I dig them up in the Fall there are always some I miss and they come back every year, just give them a spot that they can spread, a very good crop to have for dependability. They can be mashed, roasted and can be eaten raw in a salad. Loveage is celery like and a perennial and gets bigger every year so it will provide a fair amount, it can be used to cook with or fresh in a salad and of course could probably be dried. I have sorrel at the cottage and it is generally a perennial and so far it has come back two years through harsh cold winter by the water, this too can be cooked or eaten as a green in salads or put into sandwiches, it will just keep growing through out the season. One more thing that I grow is comfrey, as a medicinal tea, good for the bones, it sends tap roots deeply into the ground, up to 10 feet, allowing the plant to draw lots of nutrients deep in the ground making the leaves high in minerals which can be used as a chop and drop green manure to feed all of your fruit trees and gardens, once established it grows very quickly. Ok that’s good for now this is getting maybe too long. Thank you for your wisdom and helping us all to grow as successfully as possible, I will definitely be watching your videos 😊

  30. Jessica on May 13, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    This video was a little disappointing. These are the same 5 vegetables everyone else suggests.

  31. King Nothing on May 13, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    You’re a smart egg. Wish I could do something that involves farming

  32. Bert Jacobson on May 13, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    T y for information new that but awsome you tell people 👍👍

  33. Colette Philcox on May 13, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Hey just found your channel, thank god I found a Canadian channel. I’m in north Scarborough Ontario.

  34. Maura Meng on May 13, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    I’m surprised she didn’t add Northern staples:
    -Cabbage
    -Onions
    -Garlic
    I would have gone for cabbage over zucchini, it’s so easy to store.

  35. Karen W on May 13, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Carrots are orange…and red, white, yellow, purple

  36. Errolea brown on May 13, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Good stuff thanks

  37. M T on May 13, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    1 minute tips, 4 minutes advertisement, the rest is irrelevant blah blah blah.

  38. Jenna on May 13, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Subscribed right away it’s been a struggle to find good information for colder climates. I live in Ontario which can get alot of snow and alot of youtubers I’ve seen are in warm climates so I can’t use as much of the information as I would like to. Thankfully I found your channel! Cannot wait to watch your content

  39. Jeremy Yano on May 13, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    I love how she acts like shes surprised vegtables have nutrients

  40. Map Of The Soul: Tag Me on May 13, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Which ones can survive in Calgary outside the whole year with no cold protection or just a frost cloth?

  41. Buckbeak's Garden on May 13, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Binging!

  42. Ontario Gardening on May 13, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Yes! I am in zone 5b and we are expecting snow in the next couple of days! Grr. such a challenge. Nice to see other Canadian gardeners on Youtube 🙂

  43. LAF filmfest on May 13, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Hello from the USA, thank you for the info!!✌

  44. Frankie Be on May 13, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Hey i wanna learn about this survival food growing.. im from bc, where do i start or what topic to search? Tnx

  45. Alberta Adventurer Family on May 13, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Great video we are very limited to the crops we can grow here so this is great to know! Thanks for all the tips👍✨

  46. Megan McGrory on May 13, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    likeed both grams 🙂

  47. Megan McGrory on May 13, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    supper interested in your tilling vid or segment in a vid as a lot of home gardeners say its not good for the micro biom of the soil. love how you way you way things out and list all the pros and cons.

  48. Deborah Tofflemire on May 13, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    What about green beans ?

  49. Jillian on May 13, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    During these times I worried about our supply chain and electrical grid going bye bye and wondering how the heck in this North Dakota climate we’d survive. Potatoes were obvious to me as I know Norwegians lived on them for quite a while during the war but I’m so glad you’ve taken the time to make this list. Albeit it’s a year later but these are still weird times.

  50. Kayla Knoxxx on May 13, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    but beets are bad for with anyone with diabetes…
