Food prices go up and up at one of our local stores the cost of a big can of coffee is 10$ EEEKK
I sure hope I dont have to give up my morning cup of coffee I guess I need to look into growing tea leaves http://www.thesimpleleaf.com/learn/index.asp?idPage=plant&level=teabasics
My garden is going so well and so large that I have to hope for the weather to warm up soon so I can move it all outside. We have decided that due to food prices we will simply plant everything we have instead of selling seedlings and my mother in law will come up toward the end of summer to help me with freezing the food.
Now it may turn out that I am being a bit wacko and that nothing will happen however from the looks of things we will all be paying a great deal not only at the pumps but also at the grocery store so we all will need to tighten our belts and figure out how to survive (large families have it hard enough without food prices going up too)
Anyone and I mean REALLY ANYONE living anywhere can grow some of thier own food. gardening is not all that hard really the difference between a great gardener and poor one is the amount of harvest they get pretty much plants will grow if you give them light air soil and water nothing fancy just those things and you will at least be able to grow one tomato!
For us our garden is taking over our house we have to hope for warmth soon so we can transplant the plants we have to the ground where they will thrive
now I have no illusions of being Laura Ingalls and having my family sustained completely from my gardening efforts of course if you want to read simple stories on sustainability those are a lovely tales to explain the difficulties and triumphs of how things were done in days gone by
If you read the comments on my last post you will see that the good professor and I had a stimulating conversation on attitude change of course we would ALL love to see big bussiness and the government make a huge shift in thier way of thinking and make changes for the better for the health of all people all over the world.
