Grow your own rice and reduce personal food shortage panic.

As many of you may know, there have been some food shortages within the last year. One of the big ones was rice. Stores even started to limit the amount a person could buy. One way to get around some of that, or at least lessen your dependence on the stores, is to grow your own. Although I've not done it myself it looks like it isn't too hard.

  1. Get a clean bucket or container that WON'T leak.
  2. Fill with dirt (6 inches) then water (2 inches above the dirt).
  3. Drop in some rice.
  4. Harvest in about 4 months.

This may not replace the grocery store but it could help save some money. The main downside to this is that standing water is a mosquito magnet. The lay eggs in ANY amount of water they can find.
