Urban Farming?

Food prices soar ... and will continue. Even if you have a tiny backyard, you now have a defense against supermarket bankruptcy. 'Yall going to eventually learn the truth in what I'm saying. As a truck driver, I travel from New York City to Crystal Springs, Mississippi, and the signs are everywhere ... GET YOU SOME LAND.

I don't care if it's that vacant lot next door, or 100 acres in the country, buy something as soon as you can! The most recent word is that housing prices will continue to deflate as foreclosures increase. Then, about two years from now, prices are going to rise again.

Right now, Real Estate Speculators are doing with farm and country land what they did to home prices in urban and suburban areas all over the country. DO SOMETHING.

A friend of mine just sent me a link to a site called, "Little Homestead In The City." Have a look. It's chocked full of ideas about how to live self-sufficiently while living in the city.

I tell you one thing you are committed to getting us to look into some acres in the South. I am out here in LA and I can agree with you about land speculation, because our went more than 400%. Thanks for info looking forward to your next post.

I don't know if you have heard of the 'Nearings'(Scott and Helen) they wrote books on the simple life (he was actually kicked out of being a lecturer at some US university for being a 'radical economist',,,anyway, their motto was 'Pay as you go'. No, you won't make ga-zillions on the stock markets or venture capitalizing on real estate or mortgages, but what you do own they can't take away.
