Growing Vegetables to Survive Tough Times
I have put in a small garden. Just about 15 feet X 30 feet. Planted Crook Neck Squash, Zucchini, Okra, Corn, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Potatoes, Radishes, and various herbs for my wife's kitchen. We don't have to buy veggies, and have even lost weight since we eat more healthy foods.
If you really want to know how to survive tough times, then talk to your grandparents, or parents. Especially if they were alive during or shortly after the Great Depression. My grandmother has been a wealth of information!
