I worked out a long time ago that art is only 'good' if it's by someone famous, mad or dead, it helps to be all three.

Also turnips.
you cant bottle the buggers if the critters keep eating them

Ps, you can freeze tomatoes for cooking.

Then suck sealing (vacuum packing) has to be the way to go. It's cheap, once the machine is bought, and very space efficient.

Chickens of 4-6lbs are readily available, at the market for a start. How big do you want your GM mutant monster? Home grown, not strictly legal, chickens are $3.50/lb here. $4.00 if you can convince the buyer that your choking is halal.

If you don't want to grow your own try and find a Hutterite or Mennonite Community and you'll get so good farm produce of them.
