Can you cook things from scratch?

I've been looking around at my preps and know I can prepare my stored beef, beans and rice, with a fair influx of wheat and corn and a few canned veggies and fruit but can you grow your own herbs, make your own soy sauce, bake your own bread?

It's an issue of the perfect season to the current season, your crop may fail, you might have to beg borrow barter or purchase from another grower.

I had garlic and onion seed ready to go in two plots this year, great bulbs on the sweet onions already; my boys were cutting weeds and decided the garlic bed was offensive ... I'm not sure where to turn, other than I can force the garlic for another year. I seriously wanted to beat some heads as this patch was already weeded and cleared. 4 perfect heads of seeding garlic and they cut them down like the danylions, I almost cried.

Teach your children welll and don't whine when they don't know better than what you've shown them.
