Admiring freshly picked quince from our garden

We picked only about a third of the fruit from the very prolific tree we have. The rest should be ripe in about a week. Living in big city does not mean that you have to rely on mega grocery stores to "grow" and "make" all your food. YOU are responsible to feed your family, not the store. The store chain's first concern is to make a profit not to nourish your kids. Nothing beats the FRESH food that YOU grow. That is the ONLY way to know with certainty that it is truly organic. There is ALWAYS a way to grow at least some of your food even when your yard is small and even when you live in a small condo. Even than you can grow some of your food in a window or balcony containers, in community gardens... Earthquakes, floods, wars and other unpredictables are real and possible at any part of our planet and your grocery store, gas station and bank aren’t going to be available than…

Many varieties of fruit and vegetables are low maintenance and prolific and are going to reward your family with healthy food even though you did forget about them for weeks.

In general, I do believe that modernization and the industrialization is a step backwards instead of forward for a man kind and the fact that the majority of families moved away from fertile land and into big cities relying on someone else to feed them is simply foolish. It is very important to teach your children to grow, recognise, and forage healthy food. Remember the saying: “Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime" ?
