What does this mean?
- Overall, temperatures are rising much faster than the gloomiest climate models have anticipated.
- Growing worldwide food shortages will continue to hike up prices for most food products.
- More people will starve. But many don’t have to because, they can grow food in their own back yards for pennies.
Kmart has fruit and vegetable seeds for $1.59 a pack in their garden department. A pack of Burpee Organic pea seeds can yield about 100 plants. That’s less than 4 cents a plant. It might cost you 5 cents for a tomato plant which can yield 10 to 15 pounds of tomatoes over the course of the summer. That’s right just 1 plant! You can start some plants indoors right now by cutting open a milk container poking some holes underneath, and adding some soil and a seed or 2. Squash, lettuce, tomatoes and kale seem to do well here in the Mohawk Valley. Why don’t you give it a try?
