grown produce. Im talking about getting the type of food that's good for you, but is still affordable. Also how about meat? I don't want any GMO in
my foods and I want to live as long as humanly possible, is that so much to ask? Spread the word so that everyone can stop going to Walmart and other
stores that just care about making profit then caring about the people. I look forward to your reply's.

I've found the produce thing really tough. I planted a lot of seeds this year, but made too many mistakes in growing them. If you liked jalapenos,
well, I did alright, but I think I need more to live on than that.
I would look into deer and the like for meat, kind of gamey, I think, but makes good chili. Also, look around for small packing houses, we have one
here that will sometimes have a good deal on a large quantity of beef.
I think storage is going to be a good deal in your decisions...you can't always go down and get fresh, so some form of preserving will need to be
used. I wish we could count on freezers forever, but I think that's sort of dangerous.
Dried stuff could be a good benefit....start with your produce or meats bought locally, from small, trusted sources and preserve it through canning or
drying....and use it to supplement the crops you plant.
Look into indoor gardening, hydroponics...all that....
oops...I think I started rambling. That was probably a lot more than you were wanted to listen to.....my apologies.
I am also looking forward to the replies as eating is very special to me and my family seems to like it as well.
