In the US we'd have to give up most (but not all) of our fresh fruits and green veggies in the winter, but we'd get by. I can understand Britain being short (though it shouldn't have let itself get too short), but shockingly China would be in a bad way as well. They've got plenty of land mass.

Agree Petty. Some of our spuds are sent to places like Egypt, growing conditions are better, they are grown and back they come as "new potatoes" . Theres a lot of call for home grown fruit and veg and "buy local", customers are getting cheesed off with seeing "Spain" or wherever on their lettuce when people think its easy enough to grow here. I know where I am even on balconies in the flats round me people are growing tomatoes, spuds in big bags, anything edible more so than roses etc. I grow runner beans every year because I love them, its the cheapest option and they taste a million times better than shop bought where its so commercialized fruit and veg has lost all flavour.

{{ My ole Grandad used to have trestles with beans and peas growing all over them, popping them in the summer and eating them right from the pod was so tasty, so sweet too. Fond memories. }}

Chinese students especially complain about the lack of taste in food, which I now think is a bit strange having recently found out they import most of their food. Perhaps it's because they get it from vietnam and cambodia so it's only a few days old rather than being shipped across the ocean. Or perhaps it's mainly grains that they import, I dunno.

I'm sure other Asians have similar complaints, but we don't see as many of them except Japanese and Koreans who are too friggin' polite to complain about anything, or Indians who spice their foods so much they can't taste the original anyway.

I like the Chinese, who seem to have the same amount of cultural diversity as America (not so much racial) and living under communism have the same sort of scrappy rebelliousness as the Russians ("If they didn't want us to do it, why did they make it possible?"). They'll happily break any rule that doesn't make sense to them (so long as it's not reinforced with machine guns or the like), not with the same glee as a Russian perhaps, but with a sort of straightforward practicality which is entertaining.
