Today’s podcast is a short one on two quite different subjects. In the first segment we discuss the actual financial value of a small home garden. The numbers are quite surprising with even a very modest garden producing well over 500 dollars a year in food based on current supermarket pricing. With a bit more examination we discuss how it could easily move up to 1,000-1,500 dollars. Then further how a bit of permaculture can ratchet it up to 2,500 dollars or more even on small suburban lots.
I then ask the question, “does some part of you want the collapse to come”? Is there a piece of most survivalists that actually looks forward to a major economic or other collapse.? If so what does that say about the current state of affairs in the world? Also does it say something to us about the way most of us are continuing to choose to live our lives? I am really interested in hearing your answers to those and similar questions.
