Are you ready to grow your own food?
Will Allen believes that everybody regardless of their economic means should have access to the same healthy, safe and affordable food that is grown naturally.
For some poor urban residents, who are sick of fast food and scarcity of grocery shops it means that they have to grow their food themselves...in the future the soaring food prices of fresh and healthy food will force us to follow their example, are you ready?
I live in a condo; but, I have a fairly large balcony. Besides your typical balcony stuff, I grow swiss chard, lettuce, spinach, peas, radishes, tomatoes and carrots. It takes a bit of space management; but, it can be done and I have some fresh veggies right outside my balcony door.
Yep. Been growing my own veggies and fruits for years now. I own a fair piece of land, but as I don't have a large family, my garden doesn't have to be huge. It was at first a lot of trial and error. The first garden I put in was raided by rabbits and deer and I got NOTHING...and I had a repeat last year when a herd of deer attacked my tomatoes, just as they were about ripe! (but that was all they got!) I could have cried. But who wants to pay the outrageous prices in the stores for fruit and veggies that seem low quality and poor tasting, not to mention all those 'recalled' produce issues over contamination!?
Grow your own. It's not that hard. And don't forget the herbs!
I am not ready to grow my own food but I sure am able if there ever was a need.
