I think a lot of people deal with sub-clinical depression caused by their poor diet, which leads them to self-medicate with the same poor diet.

I know when I'm exhausted, I grab some deli. It's coleslaw on the side and I eat the sandwich without the bread, but the trip to the store and then making something is just too overwhelming.

We had a food co-op many years ago, but it died from lack of support. There were a lot of takers but not that many givers

We have a weekly local farmers market in town and I'd love to support the farmers, but organics are few and far between, if at all.

I'd love to grow food here, but I'm 32' high on an ancient sand dune. The soil is sterile, white, sugar sand.

To grow food means a lot of fertilization and irrigation. Unfortunately everything I do here runs downhill into a protected and troubled lagoon where fish spawn. Fertilizing is banned in the summer months and for me it's all year. So I plant native and well adapted species, none of which provide edible food. But they get all they need from what mother nature provides.

On the other side is a protected fresh water wetlands. It isn't in as much trouble as the brackish lagoon, but I don't want to spoil it either.

It's the price to pay for my little half acre in paradise.
