Clarington, I think the problem, even for some with plenty of garden space is lack of knowledge / confidence to have a go, and a lot of "I'm not a gardener'.
As one that ate fresh veg nearly everyday until I was 18 ( then I had a flat for 18months and lived on baked beans and spent my wages on fun ) I can't imagine not eating fresh veg, even if some isn't from my garden. I think maybe we now have generations that just don't know how to prepare, cook or enjoy vegetables.
I doubt we'll go back to dig for victory, but I think many are trying due to necessity and health.
I'd love it if one of my neighbours could grow things I don't have room for and I'd swap for my surplus. No use asking as one grows and feeds his young family, we do swap extra veg plants, and otherside are spreading pebbles where there isn't grass.
Good new thread.
