Survivalist Tip: Once things settle down a little after December 21, don’t think you’ll be in the absolute clear. Stop being such a suburbanite. Even with all the zombies, politicians and rap stars dead, you should still be very much in survivalist mode. Of course, it’s not a lifestyle you should leave behind anyway, but that’s another essay. If you’re extremely resourceful, you’re probably planning on starting your own garden or farm – growing fruits, vegetables and other crops to be as self-sufficient as possible. Therefore, you need to stock up on pots for starting various plant seedlings. I’m not talking Tupperware or Corningware. Again, get out of that damn suburbanite mentality!
There are a number of different types of pots and trays to get your garden started. Some are plastic, ceramic, concrete, wood and even recycled cow manure. If we’re lucky, we’ll be able to recycle the bodies of some of those dead politicians for plant feed, but again, that’s another essay. I recommend getting containers that will last a long time; therefore, look at ceramic and concrete pots. While this may seem rudimentary, remember that archaeologists have always recognized pottery as a sign of a civilized society. Every stable community from the ancient Romans to the Mayans molded pots to contain water and food. Life will never be the same after the start of the New Baktun, which will be a good thing. Besides, some of those pots can hold your chocolate, while you’re busy planting!
