I have similar issues with the gardens because I am in Alaska. We have learned to rely on the things that grow the best rather than the ones that
taste the best, my young boys even eat brussels sprouts!
I trust what I grow with my own hands long before what we have to purchase at the store.
We then try to focus on the rest of our diet. We are lucky though to live in a place where I have ptarmigan walk through my yard on a regular basis,
so we rely on the wild bounty as well as what I grow. It is more of a matter of changing our thought processes to enjoy what we do have available
Growing up my favorite meal was pheasant in the crock pot with wild rice, now the stupid chickens take the place of the pheasant. The woods offer up
greens, herbs and mushrooms as well as the critters and the berries.
The control freaks in our government need to give up this fight against our food. We are not hurting anyone, only making our families healthier. Maybe
they should be more focused on the people who want to and are causing real harm instead.
