Our grocery bill has gone up 35% or more in 6 months. Worse we aren't buying nearly as much as we were 6 months ago. Almost all our vegetables for near 4 months were homegrown. It'll be near another year before we start supplying our own meat. Unless I suddenly grow fonder of chicken. Nothing much against it but far from a favorite.
I have a feeling we’re going to see a much larger portion of our incomes going to groceries in the very near future.
Yet another reason to put up whatever extras you can at this point in time. Seed shortages and crop failures with little to nothing in storage for this nation.
