But it's different out of the big cities. There people live off what they can grow in their backyard gardens, or what they preserve. For instance, in Hakkari, in the far southeast, the landscape is really inhospitable to farming. It's mostly animal husbandry. But in the spring, there's six weeks where everything is in bloom. The hills are covered with all kinds of wild herbs and vegetables. People go out and they collect tons of them, literally. Plants like fennel, wild garlic, sorrel, purslane, thyme. They'll salt them and put them in the local cheese, or sun-dry them, and that's what they live on from then until the winter comes.
