Now that's just solid economics right there.

(I get your implications though...+ demand --> + competition, + supply --> - price)

The trend these days is for the big ag companies to start labeling things organic too. We'll have to be on the lookout for actual organic, food. I like the farmer's markets and CSA's since you can inquire about the farm itself.

Wow, cool! Ours have a long way to go still. Our tomatoes are just ripening though...with fresh basil. YUM.

Awesome! If we had an actual house and a backyard, we'd probably be self-sufficient as far as produce goes. And SWMBO grew up with livestock so a little chicken coop just for eggs would probably happen, too. But our little townhouse porch has enough room for only a few pots. There needs to be room left for the BBQ and brewing space for the propane burner when it's brewday.


Just remember, grass uses too much water and is essentially pointless.

Grow food, not lawns!

That is absolutely beautiful. Are those nasturtiums in the front?

Where's the applause gif when I need it!

Cheezy - sorry for the massive OT here. But come on, that picture is worth it.
