Please teach them to garden and can. I wish I had learned as a kid. Had to learn both as an adult, and I'm still a real beginner at canning, etc.
I am. The last few years they've been specifically requesting their own garden space to plant what they want. I thought it was so nice they were learning something. Then they tell me they want their own garden so they can eat all the want without me telling them to stay out of it lol. But they'll plant their own seeds or transplants and water it. And they'll help harvest my big garden. 2 years ago I had a large row of pinto beans that were drying on the vines, and a big storm was coming. So we all went out to pick the dried beans pods before the rain. My then-3yo kept picking every bean pod and asking "Is this one ok?" If I said yes she put it in the bucket. If I said no she threw it on the ground! Luckily most were dried and I only lost a few bean pods that way.

Canning they've decided is too much work lol. But they do help prep things for canning and help me gather the jars.

The downside to our little suburban homestead- it has produced picky eaters in the sense that they only like fresh food and not conventional store-bought in certain categories. They eat pretty much everything and some things like broccoli store-bought is ok. But store-bought cucumbers, beets, lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, green beans (1 kid and the husband), eggs (we have chickens) and milk (I buy raw milk from a local dairy) won't get touched unless it's organic, heirloom or from the farmer's market because it tastes the closest to garden fresh. But there really is a taste difference.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm . . . home-canned salsa, spaghetti sauce, ketchup, marmalade, jam, gravy, fruit, chow-chow, etc., etc, etc.

In case of crop failure/insufficient crop, can fresh, in-season organic produce from the market :smile

Cards or a board game at the kitchen table while keeping an ear on the ole fashioned pressure canner jiggler with their favorites getting canned might be one way to overcome the "it's too much work" Or waiting on the water or steam canner(s)

Normally near St. Patrick's Day cabbage is on sale at every grocery store, usually for .29 to .39 a lb. This year, our local Lidl's is the only store that has it on sale for .49 lb. Walmart is .68 lb., Safeway is 1.29 lb., and Wegmans is .99 lb. (up .20 lb. in 2 weeks). Giant is selling cabbage by the head for $2.74, they've never done this before, it's always been by the lb. Cabbage is usually fairly cheap, but not anymore. At the rate of inflation on food and gas, I don't know how much longer the poor, working class, and middle class are going to be able to put food on the table and gas in their cars in order to get them to work to earn a paycheck. :ohno And what are those who are supposed to be representing us, protecting us, and making things better for us doing? Nothing ~ because they were cheated out of office by the voter fraud committing, lying, cheating, narcissistic psychopaths also known as Communist-Fascist Demonrats. :furious

I so want to see your spread. Through your various posts, I've got a picture of it in my mind. It sounds delightful.
Thank you.
The best thing I did with my garden was fence off with utility panels. Made walkways by putting down lots of thick newspapers. Thick layer due to my garden having grown up so had some hard weeds that had to mow down leaving stumps. Also we have heavy black gumbo dirt here. I then put down layer of heavy builders plastic then another layer of newspaper and then cedar mulch. Cedar helps with bugs, doesn’t blow away or wash away. I can now get out to weed or harvest even in wet weather and not bog down in mud are fall in the slickness. My beds I lined edge with old bricks, landscape timbers and 4x4s I had on hand. Makes gardening so much easier. I’ve gotten old and arthritic so anything to make my life easier. Just wish I’d done it years ago.

Update on the cabbage prices: usually the prices go down for cabbage starting at the beginning of March, but evidently this year most stores didn't drop their prices until the week of St. Patrick's Day. Looking through the sale papers last night, the stores I mentioned, except Wegmans, have all dropped their price-per-lb. of cabbage to between .27 and .49 lb., with Aldi's being the lowest at .27 lb. I wish we could have a garden, but living in a condo makes it impossible except for container gardening. I tried that one year with tomatoes and while the tomatoes were tasty, they were also very small.

Some varieties do better than others in containers. Might have to check the soil/growing medium and amend. Might have to turn the container every day. Etc.

"A global food crisis looms unless the war in Ukraine is stopped because fertilizer prices are soaring so fast that many farmers can no longer afford soil nutrients, Russian fertilizer and coal billionaire Andrei Melnichenko said on Monday."

"Several of Russia's richest businessmen have publicly called for peace since President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion on Feb. 24, including Mikhail Fridman, Pyotr Aven and Oleg Deripaska."

"Putin refuses to. He has called the war a special military operation to rid Ukraine of dangerous nationalists and Nazis."

I do not believe the Ukraine/Russia war makes any difference regarding the food issue. Take into account weather and political decisions around the world. Mostly due to the political decisions. Also, we are end times.

You are right. It's the policies from all of the world leaders who are either alumni of the Klaus Schwab school or far left globalist leaders that have been pushing towards the Great Reset who have caused the supply chain crisis
