WASHINGTON/PARIS, March 31 (Reuters) - Food prices are soaring, a wealthier Asia is demanding better food and farmers can't keep up. In short, the world faces a food crisis and in some places it is already boiling over.

I love how people goto fast food restaurants and suck down 6 or 7 cheeseburgers and think nothing of it just to do it again later on. However the same person is absolutely not inclined to learn the basics of growing a small garden.
Do you know why this was never a problem in the 1800's? because everyone grew their on food, hunted just what they needed and didn't waste anything. Then when the industrial revolution rolls around people decide hey, I can be a lazy piece of crap and get away with it.
I don't know how many of you enjoy munchin on veggies, but the next time you do just take notice of all the seeds inside. If you like instead of easting them remove them(it takes 2 min of your time) dry them out with paper towel. Get some sterile soil from a hardware, garden store, and plant them accordingly. Water your babies and watch them grow.
It's amazing how many tomatoes you can get from a single tomato, or how many peppers from a single pepper. Plants are like people they just wanna reproduce, and they do so as best they can. With a bit of help you can grow an abundance of your own food in about 40 - 100 days.
Try it out, you will be amazed!!!!
