If you are offended by language and or irreverency, ya' might wanna
skip old Joe's essays.
Great article(s) on the dangers/situations we are facing, and it does
apply to our gardens......because they may not be here for many of us
for long. Food production is gardening, different scale.
Starts with a quote from LONG ago.......funny how some people just know
"The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to
produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or
other visit the human race. The vices of mankind are active and able
ministers of depopulation. They are the precursors in the great army of
destruction, and often finish the dreadful work themselves. But should
they fail in this war of extermination, sickly seasons, epidemics,
pestilence, and plague advance in terrific array, and sweep off their
thousands and tens of thousands. Should success be still incomplete,
gigantic inevitable famine stalks in the rear, and with one mighty blow
levels the population with the food of the world."
-- Thomas Malthus, 1798
Joe was a friend of Hunter, Tim, Kurt and many of the other boys. A
true redneck and true liberal/socialist. Kind of a paradox, eh?
Billy, I know you gotta love the guy!
