The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    I figured but it seemed like the perfect chance to finally use lmgtfy.com
    actually from the article that I should have read before asking you it doesn't seem like the best use of space.
    I would think having one good fuel crop would be ideal too, you know in case of a really nasty end of civilization.

    The best bet is to find out what the indiginous population grew as thier staple crop. So much of growing is climate dependant, but spuds, well you cant beat them

    according to top gear 25 acres of oilseed rape produces enough petrol for 9,000 miles in a small car

    In a colder climate a green house or poly tunnel is a real boon for frost tender crops like tomatoes, and they are used extensivly in spain in comercial veg operations.

    Glass is pricey to set up, plastic is unsutainable in a long term post apocalyptic situation, but both allow you to control the growing enviroment to a greater extent

    People in glass houses should not throw stones

    Not as sweet as sweet potatoes but definitely more in the sweet potato end of the flavor specturm than the rugular potato side. Actually I don't think I'd be able to tell one from the other unless trying them side by side. Darn good eating!

    They make excellent french fries, mash, au' grautin, pies, soups...

    ...basically anything you can do with a potato.

    Good advice but, unfortantly for me the indigenous people of my area where still foraging for food when the Europeans arrived. However we do grow a **** ton of avocado and other stuff here now. I guess I will just have to go take over the local organic farm when the time comes.

    Well yes and no, my biggest problem here is 16.43 Inches of rain fall a year. Just right at the cusp of being a desert. So getting enough water to grow things is an issue.

    I cant complain realy, West Cork has the ideal growing conditions for most frost hardy stuff.

    The only fly in the ointment is the potato blight which thrives in the humid conditions, and with this whole climate change thing, who knows what the future brings
