Who out there is growing a garden? If not WHY? For once you have tasted REAL good food, you will never go to the supermarket and buy tomatoes from other countries, shipped at the cost of gas, labor, taxes, greenhouse emmissions! Yikes...
I just went to my garden and picked cantalope, peppers, watermelons, and aboit 30 lbs of tomatoes just in a few minutes.. Okra, greenbeans and zucchini and more are going gang busters too.
So IF you do not have a garden, LEARN to or joing fast growing co-ops CSA, Church groups, community gardens, farmers markets. (buy LOCAL!) or contact your local Ag Extension office for Master Gardeners.
They will help you for FREE - ( this is for USA that I know for sure) You will eat and feel much better!
Learn to Can your own foods. Do not depend on Govt Food Stamps or Government Aid in a crisis... Start your own food co-op.. call local farmers markets and get a few neighbors.. friends.. then add a few more.. each week a few hours packing fresh food and having a pot luck dinner.... GET TO KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS... hhhmm just in case?
No time for a garden? make time... stop watching TV~ No space for a garden? grow on your balcony or patio with a trellis or vertically? Physical problems? gardening is good for you OR just make the effort to join a food co-op or buy local... you will be helping others... JUST DO SOMETHING

I love my garden. We started in May. It's now huge. This is 8 x 30 and we used very old deck boards (without nails) and added compost and new dirt. Planted silver queen corn, asparagus, squash, egg plant, 16 tomatoe plants (4 kinds), pole beans, sweet potatoes, 1 watermelon, 3 cantelope, red peppers, and a couple other things. Nothing like fresh vegs and fruit. Also have 3 blueberry bushes, 1 fig, 1 apple and 1 peach tree. Need to learn to can now.
