One To Grow On…

The news has been full of reports on the domino effect of high fuel costs. It has spiked the demand for biofuel resources, which has increase the cost of food from both fronts. All indications are that this problem will continue to grow.

What can we do?

Here’s one of those times when an individual decision can make a difference. Let’s………. plant a garden! Let’s can food for later use.

I know, I know this isn’t a new idea. All of our parents did it and even some of us. But this time it could really stand for something socially and politically.

It’s a small gesture of self-sufficiency.

Maybe you’re like me and you don’t have the space for a garden. We can do patio tomatoes or something like that. Anything.

If you can get it to grow, give someone else a portion of the fruits of your labor. That’s the reward, feeding ourselves and others.

This can be a great experience and fun.

By the way, if you need help there’s a wealth of info at your local Cooperative Extension Office. The number for Buncombe County is 828-255-5522.

Come on! Let’s grow together!!
