In a small part of my garden, I’ve included perennial food plants that thrive in Florida’s heat and humidity, are relatively cold tolerant, and easily reproduce themselves. I thought it might be a good idea to have some dependable crops if food becomes scarce and we have to forage for it. They are unusual and may require getting used to if we have to include them in our diet. In researching these types of plants, I found some interesting things; we have edible weeds that grow rapidly in our yard and are also valuable for medical purposes like managing pain. I bet they would stop invading my garden if we started eating them!
There are so many things that God has given us that have long been forgotten or are not taught anymore. Our world is rapidly changing, and if we don’t start learning the basics of living, we may find it hard to thrive in a country slowly collapsing from poor management. Hopefully, you are paying attention, heeding the warnings, and discerning the times so you are not caught off guard.
And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. Genesis 1:29-30
