Lots of folks can have gardens and animals but you definitely NEED to check the regulations with your city court house as far as feet away from human buildings and like for chickens here they have to have at least 4 square feet for each bird.

The people that are really stuck out are the ones that live in newer home areas that have Home owner associations, if shtf those people will be the first to starve as most do not allow even gardens much less food producing animals.

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
if we just planted more fruit bearing trees in streets/sidewalks/parks/etc ...

if there were strawberries, cherries, lettuce, in abundance everywhere ...

we probably don't even have to work.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1516077


You are 100% correct. Why does everyone plant grass, when they can have a harvest of food always growing there? Conditioning and ignorance is the answer. All national parks and public areas should be spread with the seeds of fruit bearing plants. Even George Washington said we should plant as much indian hemp as possible. People can eat that plant and receive many medicinal and nutritional benefits.

But even just the fruit everywhere would end dependence on money and jobs and the daily rat race. We are in the garden of eden. It just has a thorn of misinformation in it. Remove that thorn from our minds and plant some trees.

That is the answer. The dams prevent water freely flowing through the lands too. So that is also a thorn.

Peace to all. The answer to abundance has been given to you.

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
I have 5 citrus tree and a loquat in my back yard for myself and friends. I planted 9 citrus and a loquat in the front yard for neighborhood children.

The fruits come in at different times and two of them make fruit year round. I planted them four years ago, so they are well established. In fact they have survived a hurricane and 14 degree weather, so I think they will live for the future.

or here in an idea, get a university degree and make something of your life instead of working at mcdicks barely making ends meat and having to sell drugs or yourself on the side to feed your family/ epic drug habbits.

and if its so "hard" to make it in america and respect the laws there, emigrate, maybe you will find a new appreciation for life somewhere else.

Im from eastern europe you people have no idea how easy you have it because your life is not a daily grind to get all the supplies you need so you dont die when winter comes...

and yet, of all things, we have not been able to achieve free sustainable crop source? the main basis for living?

how do you propose we do that, do you know anything about farming?
first you cant plant 1 crop, that saps all of the nutrients from the earth and you will be unable to grow anything in a few seasons. second growing conditions depend on weather conditions, is it too hot too cold too wet too dry? and third vegetable and fruit bearing plants are extremely sensitive too all of those factors and require a massive ammount of work to sow the fields, irrigate the fields, de-weeding and ensuring no bugs or pests enter your crop and destroy it, because guess what if any of those things go wrong you will have no food and die. . . .

so... do you grow enough food to feed yourself year round.... cause that is what i am talking about, forget about feeding yourself year round for a second, do you grow enough lettuce to feed a pet rabbit year round?

I had 60 lbs of carrots I harvested all at once this summer. I offered my next door neighbor 10 lbs. for free, already washed, trimmed, bagged. He said "no thanks, if it don't come from a grocery store, I don't eat it."

The man saw them grow all spring over the fence. Knows I don't use chemicals on my garden. Commented several times how nice it all looked.

It boggles my mind.
