Growing your own food is like printing your own money

by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

Growing your own food is like printing your own money, but, unlike the latter the former is, for the moment still, legal. There are, however, some places in the USA and Canada that wish to forbid the growing of food in your garden, even your backyard and not just the front lawn.

It was, so it is understood, Henry Kissinger, who said that “if you want to control nations you have to control fuel; if you wish too control people you have to control food” and it is that, it would appear, that the powers-that-be are hard working at.

When you grow your own groceries, your own vegetables, though you may also raise chickens (for eggs and meat) and, say rabbits for meat, in your garden, you first of all know where your food comes from and what was put on it, and secondly you save money, even if you only grow those foods that you eat most.

So, go and dig the dirt and print, or better, in fact, grow your own money.
