Exactly, Darius. In fact I believe it is the people like us who grow their own food, even in small quantities in their yard, that will lead the charge to change. Indeed it is very hard to get people and corporations to quit doing something. If we could get people started growing some of their own food in their yards then they would be equally opposed to stopping. Instead of a grass roots movement we would have a vegetable roots movement.

LOL, catchy phrase... I like it!

My problem here at home is not growing vegetables, but getting my sister and her kid to eat them when they don't come in a box. I think my sister is about to eat some yukon golds I grew... or at least she brought 3 into the house.

LOL, I know what you mean. I offered my neighbor some red and green leaf lettuce straight out of my garden and she turned me down. She only likes Iceburg.

Gave a former sister-in-law eggs fresh from the chicken, spotlessly clean. She threw them away because they were "gross" I really wonder how she believes the store eggs are produced...

Meanwhile, we had a visitor from the neighborhood stop by while we were clearing out our community garden bed. He was looking for ideas to get started with a vegetable garden. His 3 year old daughter was fascinated with the few remaining carrots. I washed one up and gave it to her. The carrot was gone quickly after the first bite and she wanted more. Her father said she had never liked carrots and always refuse to eat them. He's definitely going to start a home veggie patch now.
