    Food?? The price of fresh produce keeps going up, while the quality goes down, the last time we went for salad ingredients, the produce looked old and wilted........and, 2.50 for a tiny head of lettuce? The same for a tiny cauliflower?
    We went into fits of hysteria when the tag price on a single, non-organic head of cauliflower was $6.99 at Food City. And not too clean ad fresh looking, either. There is nothing that would be making me buy it.

    We had three broccoli from the garden last week. $2.98 for the three pack from a local farmer who starts most of his seeds early. 3 cabbage plants coming in, at least 10 potato plants currently flowering (Yukon Gold, $8.99 for a 10 pound bag) yellow squash out the whazoo, and zukes coming in. Green beans already had 1st harvest.

    There is also this to add to the equation. Here is an excerpt from my Ark of the Government paper. Lol quoting myself.

    "The Chinese government is said to be storing more food than has ever been seen in human history. China stored so much food that it caused the food prices to go up globally. Beijing is said to hold half of the worlds wheat supply. By mid 2022 they would hold 69% of the worlds corn reserves and 60% of itís rice. They have also drastically increased imports on beef, pork, dairy, fruit, soybeans, cotton, chips and minerals. In 2021 China began to build 120 new storage facilities capable of holding 10.85 million tonnes of grain.

    China isnít the only offender other nations have placed restrictions on exports. A total of 19 countries have implemented food export bans".

    Yeah that's the thing the prices have gone up and the quality has gone down. Sometimes a head of lettuce gets up to 3.99 or more around here and they are sometimes half rotten. The local walmart price has went down to 1.98, but at the little store in town they are 3.49 which I do buy when I don't feel like driving an hour to walmart. I just think well if I calculate in the gas I will spend. . . . lol. Your garden sounds like it is going awesome this year.

    We've been pricing some produce for a project we've been planning. a 25# case of tomatoes, basic reds, is going for average of $15. That's 60 cents a pound. The grocery stores are charging $1.98-$2.98 a pound. Profit much?? Add transport, call it $.75 a pound....


    We are actually getting good crops this year. I think it has to do with the very wet and cool spring.

    That's great information. This means that inflation is purely artificial and the stores are doing it. They claim the prices are higher because they have to be because of the costs, but if most of that price is profit then it has nothing to do with the state of the economy. Thank you for that.

    There are definitely things that have been effected by inflation, but yes, there are some ridiculous price increases that don't fit with the facts.

    Yes like when the price of oil goes down but gas prices remain high.
