Drought News Still Dismal
There has been much reporting on the effects of the current drought on crops, particularly corn and soybeans, and the news isn’t getting any better!
The new estimates coming out are even worse than anticipated and the prices continue to rise. Get ready folks this is going to be a record year for higher food prices. Those of us that actually cook will also pay higher prices but even those that eat junk food will pay higher prices since corn and soy products are in virtually every fast food/junk food item!
Have you thought about a greenhouse? Growing an organic garden or just buying some dried beans and grains now to help reduce the impact that higher prices will have on your household budget?
I am continuing to get prepared for this by storing some foodstuffs now before it is too late!
