Yesterday I had a lunch of my own organic lettuce and my own hens free range egg, and the day before used my own organic cabbage, so I'm trying I'm less than three years at this growing lark with zero previous experience so it's a steep learning curve for me, especially as I'm determined to grow everything organically and there are quite a few crawly things and flying things who want a piece of the action. But I'm learning from previous mistakes and it's starting to come together now and this year I hope to have quite a bit of organic fruit and vegetables. I know I won't ever be entirely self sufficient and I'll have to buy in part of my food needs, but I'll know that at least part of my food intake will be natural. I have no confidence in vets either who all appear to be agents for big pharma so I'm treating my dogs with natural remedies too which seems to be working out really well. So I am trying to eat healthily....really I'll check out the quinoa and most likely give it a go (are you sure you're not on a commission?) The only problem I have with it is the freezer aspect. This might sound ludicrous (but if I had described today's world four months ago everyone would have thought me crazy) but there may be a stage in the future where we have no or limited electricity thus rendering the freezer useless. And in that type of scenario....well dare I say it?.......that much maligned bag of rice might actually come in handy Get an oil fired generator back up for fridge and freezer. They'll give you back up...unless they switch off electricity indefinitely...Then we're in a whole other ball game. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
