I was thinking tonight.......not always a good thing........ about the state of the world, and then later about the state of my world. I need to make some improvement. Heard mention about the years corn harvest. It's forecast to be very low this year. So much of our lives is corn based, probably more than we realize. I see corn based foods creeping up on cost already. I need to grow more food. I'll have close to a year worth of potatoes, beans, peas, squash and cucumbers. Maybe enough tomato products if they keep doing as good as they have. Need to source out more meats though. How are things for you? In your area? I have noticed a definite, marked decline in the available foods in our stores the past couple of years. I'm big on fresh foods. I have seen in our store, where they have actually remodeled the produce area to have smaller bins for the fruits and vegetables, so less looks like more.
