Stock up!

With all the rain, flooding and general bad weather the Country has had, food prices are going to spike up. The winter wheat report is not good and with all the rain it is not going to get any better. Around here farmers are having a tough go. They have had to fight rain and cool temps., corn that has been planted is about 3 inches high but a lot of it may not survive all the rain. On the good side the forecast is calling for higher temps next week so that will help. If you are able, I would suggest that you plant your own garden. We have many things ready to plant if the weather would clear, it is really upsetting that we can not plant as the ground has standing water. If you are unable to have a garden please stock up now while prices are still low, i would get anything that has to do with corn, which is of corse everything!

Hard Times Are Coming.

Hard times are coming to this Country. 28% of homes in the U.S. are now underwater, and reports are now out that the crop forecast for this year is down, which means even higher food prices. Gas is already at an all time high. If the country’s corn crop is bad you can expect prices on almost everything to rise, corn is in so many of todays products, even in fuel. Yet we continue to burn our food for ethanol, makes no sence to me. We can not continue down this path, if we don’t cut the spending in the federal government our country will crash. I hope that you are preparing your family for hard times, because it is going to happen, maybe not this year or next but it will happen. If you don’t have a garden please start one and learn to can, when you go shopping if something is on sale buy 2 instead of 1 and store the other. You really need to think about doing this, if it doesn’t happen well at least your pantry will be full! Do not rely on the government for help(now they will text you if there is an emergency, no really!), rely on only yourself, and help others when you can. If we focus on this then we will be ok.
