Many factors could drive certain food costs up radically in the future. It could be as simple as soaring demand from new markets. It could be as complex as the effects of climate change rendering farm fields too hot or try or spreading plant-destroying pests to new areas.

It’s getting real bad.
I reported on my Chef Boyaree index years ago but it is getting out of control now.
Ground beef is like $5 to$6 dollars an Lb here in Dallas.
Thems the danged scraps!
we just finished a cross country drive and we listened whenever we could to the farm channels....big worry in Iowa is getting the railroad cars to carry their corn/wheat because apparently the natural gas industry is grabbing up a lot of the rail cars....
I could live without steak, but coffee... Fortunately this article blames future global warming for prospective increases in the price of coffee, so I’m not too worried.
BTW I went to the store the other day and saw some chip chop ham for $1.99
I ordered a Lb
Doofus Hispanic woman is like What?
I said I want an LB of this stuff you have the red sign up saying it is on sale.
She says what?
I say this stuff that is on sale for $1.99 and call it by brand name.
She says what?
I ask again in detail.
Even made her come around the case to look at the sign.
She says point to it.
She slices up an LB and says
Oh this one is $3.68 and Lb
Damn I was livid.
Then she insults me and says its only $3.68
Hey ahole that almost double the cost of what I farking ordered!
Love the farm report.
Ears on the ground.

Seriously I was just telling brother the other day that the farm report really dials you into the local economy and to wider national matters.

I hear it from Robert first.

I planted 2 avocado trees so got that covered. Really need to figure out what to do about coffee and beef though. The rest I can live without.
Trying to pin the inflation consequences of QE on globull warming.
Take them Avocados, split em and stuff them witha seafood salad.
Tuna fish will do but shrimp is better.
Squeeze of lemon or lime.
Great summer lunch.

This is one thing we know for sure that it will not be!
Cooling has become the problem for agriculture, bringing drought and failed crops.
Yep, we go through about a dozen avocados a week.

Sadly they are like $2 apiece here.
They was 10 for a $1 when I left Ca.
Learned the seafood stuffed avacado recipe in Toulon France.
Delicious and refreshing
