So I'm planning to put them under hoops and plastic set up around the raised bed. 🤞 If not, I still have some seeds packed away as backup, but while I have a really long frost-free season, the length of time where the soil temp is above 60F is relatively short, so I think to get good results from my tomatoes/peppers, I'm going to have to keep cheating quite a bit.

You could dehydrate those meals to store in Mylar. Then when you are ready to eat them you would add boiling water.
I have not eaten a MRE though I believe the meal part is dehydrated.

Not sure about cotton seed but soymeal and canola meal are very commonly included in poultry feeds as a protein source. In garden soil feather meal would be a slow release source of nitrogen. Feather is mostly composed of keratin, a protein, it could be fed to chickens. .

Not sure if they add extra probiotics but that would be one quick and easy way to replenish your system.
I love yogurt, I just didn't know if commercial yogurt actually contains the probiotics they claim, or if it's just advertising hype. I'm willing to risk it :)
