For just $150, you can take a positive step toward protecting yourself from the upcoming food supply crisis. Since I don't actually believe there is an upcoming food supply crisis, and eating something that grew in my pee which at best tastes like seaweed is sort of the opposite of what I consider appetizing, I'll give it a pass. But I'll be cheering anyone else who takes the (green, gooey) plunge.

There's a book that was once out there called "two acres to freedom" or something like that. Basically it positioned it that with a properly-managed two acre plot one can scratch out a living via barter and home-grown crops for a family of 4. Farm the land for food, trade for what you can't produce, do odd jobs for extra scratch.
If Amber and I were so inclined we've got enough property to grow a good chunk of our vegetable needs right now.
