We had a garden for many years but gave it up when we realized we could BUY the food (in season) for less than it cost us to grow - in terms of time/labour etc.
Canned/"instant" food for emergencies, otherwise we cook from scratch 90% of the time. Use to hunt...don't anymore (time constraints), fish occasionally (although not part of the Vedder/Fraser crowd), pick wild shrooms, asparagus, berries etc.
Like to make big batches and freeze/dehydrate/can as required.
