Spike, I really doubt it.  I did for several years grow a substantial
fraction of the food our family ate, and I can state it is hard enough
without considering defending.

For what it is worth. a major disruption such as what happened in 536
would not necessarily result in massive starvation with adequate
intervention.  People could eat lower on the food chain diverting most
of the food fed to animals.
