Gardening does pay off... even if there are problems.
This year we have a terrible raccoon invasion. They ate ALL the sweet corn before it was even getting close to being ripe. And now they are eating and knocking down tomatoes that are green. Ugh! Next year we will have an electric fence to keep them out.
Nevertheless, in spite of the raccoons and weeds, there is lots of food out there. I went out and picked things today and cut up 7 different vegetables and one herb to make a stir-fry for supper. It was very good, by the way, served over rice with some soy sauce. Here is what I put in the stir fry. The big white blob is some frozen onions. My garden onions were starting to rot in the ground, so I pulled them all and sliced them and froze them in little packages. Clockwise from the onions are sugar snap peas, sweet banana peppers, tomato, parsley, leek, and okra. I also added some fresh garlic from the garden. I feel, well, privileged. There are so many of our brothers and sisters in the world that have so little to eat.
