    Or rather, those gardens could of actually stayed as gardens.

    Sounds tastier too, I mean fresh tomatoes, fresh lemon juice, fresh oranges and peaches.
    In lieu of that farm share are brilliant. No actual gardening involved but you contribute to an organic, sustainable, family run farm and get to get involved in this community deal. Some have animal and animal by product shares (like milk and cheese). It's fun and very cost effective for the consumer.

    I would like to start a garden. Except I'm a gangene thumb and I couldn't eat everything I grow by myself.

He tried to play it off like "I just hate when businesses shove politics down my throat" and I told him to get over it because in today's America all corporations make some kind of statement about the gays, women, "minorities", various diseases like breast cancer etc., education, child welfare, poverty, homelessness, etc. You vote with your dollar, money is speech. So what he's really mad about is seeing any open support of GLBTQ people anywhere. Because he is a homophobe. He may be one that shields himself behind a bible, but he is still a homophobe. He got real mad. He is a business owner himself so like a mini-Dan Cathy.

    The reality is that most companies because they are so huge and driven by profit margins invest in VARIOUS often contradictory causes. Gotta grease a lot of wheels to stay on top.

    It isn't too bad. The peaches grown at my house are given to my siblings, relatives, and family friends because there is more than enough to feed that many people. One tree is big enough to bring 20+ peaches. If my family didn't like eating them a little on the raw side (not the juicy red ones you often see,) I would probably be cutting the branches more so the peaches that do grow can grow faster. Generally, cutting/pruning is best done at the opposite time of when a plant is in season (like fall or winter when many plants are shedding/keeping up with the winter cold.)

    Some of the vegetables we grow on a yearly basis that we know we won't finish is given to them too.

    For certain fruits and vegetables, you can cut certain parts of the branch so that you have less of them. Doing it this way, they tend to grow bigger, faster, and juicier (no pun intended) when they are in season (less fruits and vegetables to feed.) But it also means that you'll have less of them.

    For vegetables like tomatoes, if you don't have a big enough backyard (or any yard,) if you have a window, that is more than enough to begin growing them. In this way, you trim the tomato on a yearly basis to keep the vines from getting out of hand and tame inside the house.

    But whether you can finish them or not, it is generally cheaper, healthier, and tastes good to be able to grow your own fruits, vegetables, and herbs. At least, it is better than buying canned juices or lots of lemons to make your own juice, not to mention how corn infested the food in stores are.

    Just need to find the right time and place to grow a certain fruit/vegetable/herb.

    I feel like this whole fucking fiasco is some sort of high school drama. Don't people have anything better to do than give a shit who's locking lips with who? Not just the anti-gays, but the crazy liberal "RESPECT OUR VIEW" people are just as obnoxious. It all sucks.

    I consider culture war issues a distraction from the real issues.

    Whether it is pro or anti gay/abortion/gun-rights/etc, most of it is a distraction.

    That is what most people in Congress do during the lame duck session, create as much distraction as possible, pass what may or may not be able to pass without the people looking, get reelected, rinse and repeat.

    It is why we never get anywhere with all those crumbling issues I've listed.
