    I give away a few plants to friends. Sister and BIL are my only true neighbors, and I try to give them plants, but they are particular about what peppers they grow. Sister lived in Colorado Springs most of her adult life, so she is spoiled as far as peppers go.

    Some pole beans that look like the yard long beans, edible gourds, purple potatoes, and she was telling me last week she had more bean seeds for me.

    That would be nice. But she is well into her 80's. And although she does have lots of family back home, they are killing folks for drug use in the Philippines these days.

    grow some hops and barley, and teach them to make their own beer, or give them some rye or sprouted corn and teach em to make liquor.

    unless they're too far gone, i would imagine poor alcoholics would be very happy to learn to produce their own. thats why i learned to grow weed. (ok, it was because i'm cheap)

    My folks were moonshiners. Anytime they would talk about the easy money people make growing dope, I would tell them, "yea, just like making whiskey." It's hot, nasty work, and most of the time you have to do it at night. Daddy, a brother, brother in law and my granddad shared a still, but they would run their own runs. Takes about two nights to do a run, so every eight nights it would be your turn again. My granddad got busted in the mid 50's and they gave it up. He got a year and a day in the pen at Tallahassee. Daddy moved to Tampa to find work. Lived there for 5-6 years. Thank the Good Lord, they moved back to the woods just in time for me to be born.

    Sister and BIL make wine and beer. Lots of work, but if your good at it, you can save a ton.

    Had to run into town to pay bills and stopped at Lowe's to pick up some gardening supplies. I've been trying to grow Blueberries for years but they always sell out. I finally got one today,... the last one they had. Will be looking for a place to plant it tomorrow.
