Perhaps we should grow more than just the wheat. We just need to look around outside the walls of Dunsgate, and we will see vast fields of wheat. Wheat, and nothing more. Perhaps, if we are lucky, we may see a faint patch of potatoes in the distance, long neglected and nearly forgotten. Perhaps this is not the way it ought to be. Perhaps we should grow more than just the wheat.

Perhaps we should grow more than just the wheat. The wheat is good, we have no doubts about that. Our stomachs, however, our souls.. they hunger for something more. The pallate is strong, our wheat alone could never hope to satisfy the world's cravings. It is only with a full, colorful variety of foods; fish, carrots, red meats, beetroots, and more, could we hope to have our foods at their best. Perhaps we should grow more than just the wheat.

Perhaps we should grow more than just the wheat. What can we hope to achieve, if we limit ourselves to this one crop? The wheat, strong as it may be, has no hope but to work with other crops to create a full meal, or they will never be filling for the One who consumes them. A single crop alone will prove itself to be weaker, less nourishing, less fulfilling, and less pleasing to the soul than a culture of many. Perhaps we should grow more than just the wheat.

Perhaps we should grow more than just the wheat. The wheat alone, it has weaknesses, things that can be exploited by the pests of the world, and the forces that be. Without the mixed culture to support these weaknesses, to grow together symbiotically, any crop has not a chance. A simple pest, an itch against the wheat, can grow into a great maelstrom that eats at the root of this insecurity, leaving it helpless. Alone, the wheat is defenseless, and will helplessly and inevitably find itself sacrificed to a great death. Perhaps we should grow more than just the wheat.
