Nerdin Gardens: Hedging Inflation

 

A food shortage may be inevitable if American farmer's are unable to grow crops because of contrived, inflated costs. Gardening and canning your own food is a viable option to fill in the meal gaps.

 

My brother, who lives in Pittsburgh, went to the grocery store for a week's worth of supplies. There was absolutely no chicken in the displays. What about the baby formula shortage? This is outrageous!

 

Wait, there's more...

  • Many young people believe that food appears on store shelves via a magical unicorn delivery service...
  • And then some city folk say that successful farming is simply putting a seed in the ground and watering it...
  • Extremists want all beef products banned because burping cows are the #1 cause of ozone layer depletion...

Pfffft to that, ignorance is running rampant!!! And I do love me a big, juicy bovine burger with all the fixings!

 

American farmer's not only feed our own citizens but also provide much of the nourishment for other countries. When we suffer here, so do all those other poor communities that are dependent on the U.S. 

 

Gas for over-the-road trucks that deliver goods across America has risen to the point of no return. Our son is a semi-truck driver and it cost $990.00 to fill up at the pump. Poor decisions at the top have orchestrated this.

 

To offset some food costs, we will be canning fresh fruits and vegetables more than we ever have for future meals. It is impossible to predict the future but a little forethought may go further than we presently know.

 

Planning ahead by preparing and ensuring your way of life can be sustained through this contrived situation become of utmost importance. Those creating these difficult times will not be adversely impacted one bit.

 

Not. One. Bit!

I do love a good burger too! ! !  This is the first time in years we do not have a garden.  We just do not have the space.  I do miss it!

Hello Wanda,  I know growing your own food would be good but my wife has a green thumb for food.  I have to put the weeds in the flower beds.

Wanda- You are spot on with everything you said. What's sad is that some people still think that our current administration has absolutely nothing to do with it.  

My cousin and her husband love to garden and we received some fresh cucumbers and tomatoes a few weeks ago.  There are some products that I'm having a hard time getting but nothing critical...so far.

Thank you Dorie Dillard Austin TX, ever since learning that some farmer's are unable to bear the costs to remain viable, it really sank in that more is at stake than just paying higher interest rates to purchase a home. Trying to remain positive!

Right now, a greenhouse is looking more real in our future than ever Will Hamm. Am grateful to be able to eat fresh produce as the garden grows!

Kathy Streib, what is happening today has EVERYTHING to do with the current administration! Egregious behavior and bad decisions spearhead the challenges WE THE PEOPLE are now facing - will experience, not those in power.

It is unfortunate that most grocery stores are filled with boxes of chemicals designed to look and taste like food but it isn't actually real food.

Another reason to grow your own food, Brian England. At least that way, you know exactly what to expect because you grew it from seed to fruition!

Hi, Wanda.

You must be a "superwoman" to post every day, work in the garden, get on the phone, meet with the new buyer, get the listing out, go back to the garden, work the garden, then, last but not least, can the fresh food too?

I have ONE question, how do you do it?? Goodness! I'm down to writing one post a week today and am having difficulties keeping up with reading and commenting on posts, including my own!

Is there anything in your garden that I can eat and get half of your energy????

Hello Aura,

Taking care of family & business is most important. Some posts are written prior to submitting, especially when the idea hits. Had a listing appointment and wrote an offer the same day, was up late that day! I have an amazing partner in my husband and we team up in the garden, he cans too!
