The only perennials we grow which we eat regularly are herbs and various onion relatives. But these can hardly be considered to make up much of our diet.
Can those of you who eat perennials regularly please sharewhat you eat, are they nutrition crops (vitamins and minerals, like salad) or staples (carbohydrates, calorie crops).
Please note I am talking about plants, not animals.

Food is getting more expensive, and I expect it will just keep getting more and more expensive and scarce, causing more people to try to grow their own, as they did during the Depression and the world wars.
