Barbara Kingsolver wrote a book on her family's experiences eating only locally produced food for a year. Voluntarily. To see if they can do it and how they'd fare. GREAT book! Really makes you think about food.Not to switch directions, well, yeah, okay...
Thinking of rationing, the latest hubbub about the border issues (avacodos!)got me to think. What would happen to this country if folks had to go back to only eating fruits and vegetables when in season locally? I remember my grandfather loving oranges at Christmas because that was when they were available. Heck, I remember when getting fresh orange juice from Florida in just 48 hours was a big ad campaign! Lol
The WWII rationing stories made me think of multiple tales of hiding food during the American Civil War. I just don't think this upcoming generation could deal with the hardship
