There are times when I'd like to share something with you but my Voice in the Garden site does not seem the appropriate place, thus, this blog.

There are experiences, thoughts, views... and for anyone lurking/waiting to pounce (as has occurred on several occasions), please do not attempt to turn what I post into a political statement. This is NOT a political site, but IS about occurrences, reality, and personal opinion concerning what I see in the world around me and my family. There are many excellent writers whose works "speak" to me, and I shall include some of them. At times it may be
something I think you would enjoy or simply whatever ails you (me).

Behind the Rising Cost of Food

The cost of food worldwide rose 37 percent from February 2010 to this year, but you are already aware of the sting to your wallet. The NYT offers this perspective. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics)

It is amazing what is going on in our world!!! It seems we must settle for fruit salad and a bottle of wine. I think I can do that.

Susan, DH loves your comment!

I've noticed huge increases in prices of bacon and eggs. I've heard the produce prices are quite outrageous too, but frankly, I haven't bought much this past winter except bananas. I do know the garden is really going to be filled this summer.

Yes, eggs have gone up considerably as has everything else: each time I look at various items, $1 dollar seems to be the norm. I'm with you, Sue, banana, yes, but other than than we are not buying much. Who would pay $2 dollars for one pepper. I am thankful for our garden.
