2. I have one also, but as it was not so gently pointed out to me.....

There are those who say growing your own food is eliteist. You have to have enough space and time to grow your own food. Only people of wealth would have that.

I'm not talking about a few containers or small corners of your yard. I'm talking about being able to grow enough to can and eat throughout the year. It can get expensive.

One of the things I have to learn is to grow more of fewer items. I grew a lot of things this year to see what grows well and what we like, but as a result we have a few of a lot of veggies. Enough for a few meals and general satisfaction, but don'task how much each tomato is costing me.

The real evil here is the safety of our commercial sector has been degraded severely. fda testing is a joke under this admin, Pesticide restrictions were eviscerated by the epa. Nobody is watching the farmers, who are being stretched thin between bad weather and a lack of migrant workers.

Sure, these incidents have always happened in small batches. But 400 people in 31 states shows nobody was watching. This is only going to get worse. The agencies have been stripped bare. Competent dedicated guv workers have been driven out and have been replaced with hacks, if at all. It will take decades to recover.

We need multiple truth commissions. One for each major agency. It is that bad.
