Hey Y’all! I hope your weekend has been as windy as mine. 😀 Hangouts are the norm these days especially with the weather being so nice and it not being too hot; but like any lazy day, the conversation often turns to what I like to call ‘what if’ situations. You know it kind of goes downhill from there…ha ha!
With ‘ALL’ of the movies on global meltdowns, apocalypses and world wide destruction; the question came up…’what if there were suddenly no grocery stores, I mean no stores whatsoever, no farmers markets…NO NOTHING!’ There was a 30 second silence until (as always) Emma blurts out, ‘we’re all screwed’. 😐 Everyone busted out laughing. I laughed so hard there were tears in my eyes so much that my stomach hurt. If such a thing ever happened, the only survivors would be the ‘Swamp People’ and the ‘Last Alaskan Bush People’ followed by a few farmers. For the rest of us… the shows over 😦 😦
After reflecting on the reality of this hard truth, I have resolved to try my hands at growing an urban garden! I think that’s pushing it a little. I am going to try my hands at growing a couple of veggies. Now if you’re like millions of regular people (myself included) or you’re a city slicker, a suburbanite or a townie and you have no skills whatsoever on how to grow anything edible past a 6 month marker, I encourage you to take this challenge.
P.S. That cactus plant sitting on your window ledge does not count…ha ha 😀
