Something Sane and Healthy

John Carey, "Vegetable Gardening," Original Copy: Selected Reviews and Journalism 1969-1986 (London: Faber and Faber, 1987), pp. 30-36 (at 36):
Isn't it time we realized that, given our bulging populations, vegetables have now become more desirable inhabitants of the earth than people: less destructive, more peaceful, more serviceable for sustaining life? The day I see a row of houses being pulled down to make a vegetable plot, I shall feel that something sane and healthy has happened.
