    And thus, the health nuts become an endogamous cult...

    And anyway, this is besides the point. You can't expect to preserve the entirety of a population's diversity in a little plot in your backyard.

    Yep. and yep. I find the comment cafe covered particularly funny. It reminded me of the sentence "it's not lost, it's just some place I don't know about!".

    Did you know?

    If we were socialists, we'd have genetically modified pests instead of corn.

    I live in two different places. One is an apartment in a heavily concreted area of a small city and the other is a somewhat rural area. I work for a home repair/remodeling company and I work for myself doing misc. construction/carpentry.

    I usually work about 60 hours a week and spend 5-10 hours per week gardening. Last year I made approx. $30,000 thanks to the recession.

    I grow most of my food in a 35' X 35' garden, obviously in the rural home, but I have enough window space on the east side of my apartment to grow strawberries, lettuce, mint and other small plants in boxes outside of my apartment. I'm trying to get the property management company to allow a garden on the roof(this is one way for people in urban areas to grow food, it seems like it's becoming a trend in some cities).

    I understand that it's impractical for many people to grow their own food or to switch to organic foods. If someone is concerned about what they're eating then they'll change their diet or grow their own food. It sounds like an endless recording of excuses when people say, "I can't do it because..." Figure it out.

    Edit: I still have a freezer full of fruits and vegetables and canned veggies. I'll still be eating last years harvest in March. I spend about 30 usd on food per week, mostly for fish and cheese(which I haven't been able to grow myself).
    “Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”
