Growing Your Own

Recommended Posts

How many of your Singhs and Singhnis out there like to grow your own vegetables.

My neighbours on either side both their own vegetables and sometimes I feel I should do the same but I am too lazy.

Went to the local supermarket and bought some Spinach and green beans, when I looked at where they were grown one said Kenya and the other one Spain.

Unless you are buying something like pineapples and bananas, why does vegetables that can be grown locally have to come from so far away.

There are 2 answers to why food is grown far away, cheaper and multiculturalism, there is a reason farmer markets cost more and organic foods cost more.

I wonder how these costs can be cheaper when stuff is shipped from thousands of miles away. The only thing that would be cheaper is labour.

The other is farmer prices forced down by the supermarket chains and their middle men that's why you should try to go fairtrade with those products

My dads had allotments for years. He's got 2 at the moment. Pay £25 a year each. Grow stuff like sweetcorn, turnips, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, runner beans, methi, dhania, spinach, chilli's, pea's, and few other bits. Plus got a pear and cherry tree there too.

Got mint and few bits in back garden, mostly stick to flowers at home though.

    • The fact that this guy threw away his political career in order to marry her is example number 72,602,308 of how desperate singhs have become. (If you want to call this "trim singh" a "singh".) How thirsty and pathetic can one be? I have noticed a trend of somewhat successful singhs gladly settling down with women who few other people want (because of a tarnished reputation, or because they are way past their "sell-by" date, etc.). Usually, when these women were younger and in demand, they would have never considered a singh. But after it becomes obvious that they are struggling to settle down (because of their various issues) and are getting old, they are happy to settle for a simp with a pagh as long as he has some status/money.   This Bola guy probably thought to himself: "I wear a turban (and can't do a decent job tying it), and I am overweight and kind of ugly. But somehow a girl is talking to me! Isn't this amazing?! I should marry her!! Who cares if it kills my career? It will totally be worth it!!!"
    • 1. She looks much worse these days with her hair cut shorter 2. This whole story is really depressing. THREE thirsty Singhs basically had their lives ended or ruined. THREE thirsty Singhs. The real story is how desperate many Singhs are. I can't decide which of the three Singhs in the story is the most pathetic. 3. I'm not sure what to believe, but it seems like a real tragedy in any case 4. There is no excusing the behavior of Gagandip Singh and Harinder Shoker. But is it wrong to point out that they probably wouldn't have sunk to such depths if they weren't so thirsty and desperate for women? It reminds me of those stories of incel white kids going crazy and killing people. 
    • Probably people who live in areas with relatively large numbers of Sikhs (near a major gurdwara, for instance). But in general, I'd say educated whites are the most likely to have an awareness of Sikhs.
    • No (unless they live near the White Sikh headquarters in New Mexico).   While Sikhs are a tiny minority compared to Punjabi Sikhs. Most of the white Sikhs are people who were hippies in the 60s and 70s when eastern spirituality was a big thing and they somehow came into contact with "yogi" Harbhajan Singh or other white Sikhs. As far as I am aware, white Sikhs are not really passing Sikhi on successfully to their children/grandchildren. Once that old generation is gone, white Sikhs will probably have an even more negligible presence.
