Dandelion

One of the most surprising finds on the list is the dandelion.  The dandelion, for most gardeners, is considered to be a weed. However, this plant is surprisingly nutritious and hardy.

The leaves, as you are aware, are edible. They offer more nutritional value than lettuce, spinach, and more popular leafy greens. As an added bonus, dandelion leaves will grow easily all year round if you don’t run the plants over with a lawn mower or try to poison them. Unlike spinach and lettuce, dandelions do not require cooler temperatures let alone any kind of temperature dependent care. 12 Plants You’ll Want In Your SHTF Garden | Survivopedia

Thoughts

This an excellent article.  However, most preppers don’t have the luxury to live in the country or have space for a garden that could hold big plants like zucchini or sunflowers.  Therefore,  I wish this list would’ve  include plants that are more suitable for vertical or square space gardening. Other than that, this article is highly recommended.  Read more at survivopedia.com . . .
