This shows not a failure of settled agriculture, but the occasional failure of the monsoon, a phenomenon that still happens today. The famine caused by the monsoon failure around 1900 led to many starvation deaths. But, it's not much good bringing this up, because as we all know, the climate had always been steady until humans started the industrial revolution. ;')

Sounds like Japanese cuisine.

Stewed weeds, raw fish, warm wine...

Just a partial generation away from pickled kochia and pigweed with canned jack rabbit if you could get them.
