I have been using the same oregano, parsley, rosemary, mint, Aloha Vera, plants in pots for years, grown indoors in pots even during our northern winter. Beet greens, Swiss chard, spinach, green onions grow really well in pots and are good in a salad.
Sprouting seeds like broccoli, radish, red clover, lettuce, alfalfa, sunflower seeds, and others grow in a few days and provide greens all winter. Stock up on lots of dried beans, peas, lentils, dried corn like pop corn, barley, oats, brown rice, and others for soup. Store root vegetables like carrots, beets, turnip, parsnip, potatoes in Styrofoam cooler containers in a cold dry place.
There are lots of vegetable grain combinations for protein that will keep you healthy. Scroll down for the table with three lists of combinations, which I have used for years for protein, and have perfect health and energy. http://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/802982/get...
If you are growing cherry tomatoes now take some new branches off the plant and place the branch ends in a jar of water. In a while they will have new roots and you have new plants to grow indoors all winter. I place them in a window planter indoors in a sunny place and let them sprawl all over a card table in front of a window.
Dig a well for water if you can. My well is only 12 feet deep and never run out of water. Get a wood stove for the kitchen dining area. If all else fails you will be warm and can boil water to cook food. Have solar lights you can put outside and move in at night. They are so bright you will have to turn them off to sleep. Think about building your own solar heaters to lean against the south side of your house. Try Youtube for ideas. Good luck to us all.
