"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

It was the figs and calcium that impressed me. Of course, we have fig trees!

I didn't know some of those things, but I still like to eat them, whatever they are!

Harry - They are all yummy - aren't they :)

Dani said...

Leigh - I didn't know that either. We don't have a fig tree, and seldom see figs for sale in our local supermarkets. Perhaps we should plant a tree... :)

Dani said...

Sol - Bwahahahaha

I didn't know some of that. I could have sworn a berry was a berry!

Ken - I am an avid reader, and I, too, was amazed at my ignorance ;)

Fascinating stuff!
Don't know if I'm the Sandra you are referring to? (Though my blog is 'Sandies' Patch'). I sometimes leave comments and sign 'Sandra'.
