Grow your own sugar! The good old fashion sugar beat! Suprisingly it is the same sugar we get from sugar cane! Once upon a time pre commercial take over, everyone grew their own sugar.

A renewable source of a very important staple!

Beans, beets, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers and strawberries make good neighbors -- as long as you plant the onions, garlic, leeks and shallots elsewhere.

Spinach gets along with everyone.
