I dont really know when it all happened but a day came when I realized the importance of herbs and food, mainly of learning how to grow our own food. When I found out of Monsanto's master plan to control the worlds food production it freaked the hell out of me.
Our home, my mother's home that is, began to have a major transformation. In the early 2000's we cut down four huge and beautiful shade trees, I felt terrible about it. However, they did not produce much other then shade, that too is useful but in the great scheme of things not more so then food. In their place we planted five fruit trees, a cherry tree, an apple tree, a plum tree, a apricot tree and a peach tree. We have added so many more, a mango tree, a avocado tree, a lemon tree, two guava trees, a orange tree, a tangerine tree and a pomegranate.
