One of the things that the organics and greenies whine about is that we eat a lot of stuff out of season these days. Apples in February, that sort of thing. This is all a result of the recent globalisation of the food supply chain and is a bad thing.
The little factoid is that imports leading to year round availability of apples happened in the 1930s. It happened before the birth of 95% or whatever of the population.
Just as the year round availability of wheat bread happened around 1850 after the repeal of the corn laws. We really did still have the \”hungry time\” in the month, six weeks, leading up to harvest until then.
Progress, it\’s such a shitty thing to do to people, isn\’t it?
