Supermarket fruit and veg

But the Question still is how you feed 63 million people plus in this country with fresh food if not food it s self ,the logistics of it alone for a city is massive. I agree its nice to eat home grown food nothing better,but it would not feed us all and other countries need our trade too,not as simple as it sounds to feed a hungry world.

I put  a clove a garlic into  a empty 6 pint milk  container and fill with water and leave for a week  and then feed the roses or plants I don't want eaten by slugs (not small plants) then keeping the clove re-fill with water and keep for another time.It gets stronger each time its re-filled until clove is gone.

I think we have to remember that the world has to be fed and although for most of the idea of food with out interference would be nice ,it can not be .My self ,I try to eat fruit that we grow in this country in season and out of my garden or others. Of course they have to treat the veg and fruit as it would not keep and we need to feed a hungry world. lovely for some of us but not practical .

They need to be planted deep and with some good compost and watered for at least a couple months or more  and feed when in flower but they like their feet in the shade and heads in the sun.
