Norm and I went out last night to pick up a few things. Walmart opened not long ago - too close for comfort. You can see it from my house, it is the quickest and easiest for Norm.
Not being well, I have had to rely on him to go shopping and this has led to endless frustration and numerous untold arguments.
I Am NOT a fan of their produce to begin with! I swear, buy something and almost over night it starts to shrivel in my fridge! Never buy anything in a bag, usually one or more is rotten.. it’s endless, last night I need garlic.
Garlic a little root plant right? That grows in the ground grown in Canada.
Do you think I could find any? Only garlic from China - not even another option or choice - there it is!! That is what divides Norm and I he will say “Screw it, I’m not driving all over for garlic...” and get it. I will say “Screw it I’m not buying it!” That is what we have to do.
Why can't I get some F&^%$ garlic from Canada - or anything else for that matter!?
We can invent all sorts of stuff, send men to the moon but can't grow a decent tomato year round without pumping it full of S*&^?
Why are our options stuff that has come from foreign soil, foreign pests, foreign
rules/laws/regulations for growing... across miles in crates and trucks for days, picked too early to ripen on the way!?
I hate this time of the year for vegetable shopping and being on a limited budget (aren’t we all) you lean towards deals instead of health!
Less off, in the cart yesterday was MEAT.
More spices, greens, fruit and WHOLE grain bread. No food in a box.
No Junk isle. I am on the road to recovery and I am taking him with me like it or not.
Don’t get me wrong - I get it! I get he’s tired, worked and then has to go get groceries and does not want to drive all over for garlic! When does it end and when will it start to change if we don’t act every chance we get?
Please the next time you go to the grocery store - make a point to buy Canadian.
As a matter of fact I was so pissed that I put stuff back and that is all we bought.
Going to feasting on mushrooms and sweet potatoes for a while! LOL - Choices limited.
Thank God, Canadian have been able to produce their own HOMEGROWN Herbal medicines. That could all change in the future. Just as it has been with Cannabis it may become illegal to grow other herbs and foods, then our limited choices even fewer and our chance to say no to GMO - out will go!
While in Canada - for as long as it remains I prefer to support fellow Canadians and keep my greens as FRESH and HEALTHY as possible - the best way to do that:
GROW your OWN!
Wait till you see my garden this summer !
I am curious to see reaction to this cartoon. It is one of those that I think people will go 'huh'? Oh well. I was in bed and the 'middle panel'- the lady bug formation, popped into my mind! I could see it clear as day! I was tired but got up, turned on a light found a pencil, (you think I'd be wise to this by now and be prepared) envelope and wrote on it ladybugs. The image too strong to ignore.
HELLO!? Could it not have been worms!?
LOL do you see how many lady bugs it took to write that! I asked Storm - "quick without counting how many lady bugs!?" Storm - 24? 108 ladybugs!
But I can understand - if I said how many lady bugs chances are no one could guess 108!
It is the first time I ever started a cartoon with the middle and as I drew the rest came to me. So we shall see.
I said what I always say to my guys "I like it."
Seeds are it.
With out them we have nothing.
No food, no hope for the future of a healthy planet.
No control over world hunger ;-( .
