  10. The farm is beautiful and so is the lady

  11. I've been wondering if Venezuelans did the same thing the family in this video did or if they mostly relied on grocery stores for their food. If they'd planted gardens and stored grains for breadstuffs they wouldn't be starving. (This would be almost impossible for people in apartments with only balconies, but even a few pots of veggies would have helped keep them from starving.

    I've stored enough vegetable seeds (in the fridge) to last years. Seeds don't expire in the short time that seed companies and garden websites say they do. I have some seeds that are 20 years old that still grow–even the ones that were stored in the garage and not in the fridge.

  12. NO EXCUSE for PUERTO RICANS in AMERICA !!

    The DOORS ARE OPEN and WE NEED to CONQUER.

    NO ONE may KNOW or CARE about our HISTORY or STORY but guess what… WHO CARES, WE KNOW !!

    WE NEED to COME UP in the WORLD.
    WE HAVE the US CITIZENSHIP from the BEGINNING.

    Not just US but ALL LATINOS can RISE UP and make a CHANGE, a DIFFERENCE and a FUTURE for our CHILDREN.

    NOW IS THE TIME TO CONQUER !!

    You Must Have A KINGDOM HEART.

  13. Beautiful but also can be a hard life especially if you get ill…still better than being a consumer wage slave

  14. Why do the whole family looks so dirty ?

  15. Esa vida es un lujo….todo
    Natural….sin quimico…esta brutal

  16. What adorable little boys!! Way to go with your healthy, sustainable lifestyle!! 😉

  17. Hezké video super hezká rodinka malí farmáři ať se jim daří 👍👍👍🌞🌞🌞🌺🌹🌸😀💚💚💚

  18. What a good family keep up the good work!

  19. Vais con sus productus al mercado biologico en viejo San Juan? Do you sell your products at the weekly bio market in old San Juan? Voy a visitar PR en enero 2020 por el festival San Sebestian. Tengo un pequenita huerta en mi terraza. Muy bien video!

  20. Mí sueño siempre fue, él vivir así desde niño 🙏🤠🇵🇷🙏👍❤️🌴

  21. Canning food for future consumption, especially if there is a disaster will be a good alternative, but there are pros and cons since although the weather is excellent for agriculture all year round, they will have to plan and come up with some method that they can utilize to preserve anything they can since the high temperatures will spoil the food and thus, it will be a waste of their time and resources.

  22. Esta familia me llana de orgullo de representar la humildad y el amor por nuestro pais Puertorico ,tienen una riqueza que el dinner no puede comprar.
