GROWING VEGETABLES IN THE DARK
Ok, so you live in a small flat with no windows. Impossible to grow some food... nope. Dedicate one or two walls to growing climbing plants in pots. Paint the wall white to reflect as much light as possible. Install grow lights (relatively cheap in nursery shops-they don't consume much energy either) along the ceiling. Some plants that can easily be grown this way are tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, pole beans, passion fruit, strawberries, figs, citrus should be grown in espallier fashion, and even bananas and small papaya trees.
GOOGLE these terms "grow lights" + growing food.

Your old bomb shelter would make a great subterrenean garden. It would also make a fine ROOT CELLAR in case there's no juice for refrigeration. So that leaves the garage which would make a great vegetable garden. Hold a big garage sale, first. Sell all that junk in there. And take the cash and get your grow-lights and potting soil.
A garage will make a fine greenhouse that you can use even without a planetary disaster. You start your tomato plants early there. Bell pepper. Put them out in the yard in spring after danger of first frost has passed. String beans, squash require that the SOIL have warmed up too or they rot. Soon you'll get the hang of summer plants, timing them to frost dates. Your dog will love the garage in winter. The car may not get the hang of being left in the carport, but somebody has to suffer so that when KRAKATOA BLOWS again, you're left with groceries!
