that's sort of my point about the garden. You don't need full-blown fields of wheat or corn or something. Just a nice garden with early hardy spring veggies (spring cabbage is just the best)..tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, peppers..even melons and pumpkins...things like that. Lots of folks enjoy participating in their local farmer's market...another source of income. Whether preserving or not...with such a big family it would all taste sooooo wonderful in the summer months..and be better for them too. For that matter..what would be wrong with running a few cattle. I KNOW they eat beef...and having your own meat butchered and stored in a freezer can save money and time.Originally Posted by psycobabe007;4103197;
I'm guess I'm just kind of curious..why they seem to overlook the obvious.
