So, we have a tip from a reliable source that there is a real good chance gas prices will go over $5/gallon by memorial day. This is making me do some hard thinking about my garden. I really don’t need to be relying on the supermarkets for food if this happens. Especially fruits and veggies. I don’t have much choice when it comes to beans and grains, but I can grow a lot of our other stuff.
Here’s the quandary; do I plant my entire garden, knowing the soil needs a rest? I just don’t know. Pests will be a problem if the soil needs rest, but we just might need the veggies if things turn bad. And which crops would be the most beneficial? I have a lot of thinking to do.
