If this is in response to my elaboration to Accountable's post, I don't find it disrespectful at all.
That said, I think it would be best for everyone to have their own garden.
I tried. The only crop that grew yearly with no problems were the eggplants. Poo, I have no green thumbs. And now I live in an apartment on the top floor with a balcony. I would love to start a garden out there somehow, but we also don't get much sun. Oh well, I'm going to do the CSA thing for this farm I found.
Oh, I have several acres and I still don't have a garden. I have been "planning" for a while. I get some goods from my farmer dad for now. I just meant it would be "ideal".
Oh, I agree. Or at least look into CSAs. Whenever I buy produce from a store, I try as hard as I can to buy ones grown locally or at least in the USA. It's usually near impossible to find the local ones (especially in the major chain markets) and it seems pretty tough to find USA grown produce too (but that may be due to the whole in season thing...). Either way, I'm really trying to push hubby to get on the CSA thing and to stick to Farmer's Markets. We have no excuse. We live by the ocean (so that's a good source of fresh fish) and we have many good organic farmers at farmer's markets that we can buy from throughout the week. And yet, we buy everything from Trader Joes or New Frontiers (local health food store). Sigh.... Ah man, I really digressed from the original post.... sorry.
