Seems like if you can find a canned vegetable for under $1 anymore you're thrilled.

My local supermarket had their house brands on sale Sunday: 3 for $1.25, and that's about as good as it gets. DelMonte etc are way *up there* , now. Glad I have 1½yrs in canned goods/water/tp in storage.

WIN gardens. “Whip Inflation Now” for those of you who don’t remember the 1970’s and Gerald Ford.

“Population must increase rapidly — more rapidly than in former times — and ere long the most valuable of all arts, will be the art of deriving a comfortable subsistence from the smallest area of soil. No community whose every member possesses this art, can ever be the victim of oppression of any of its forms. Such community will be alike independent of crowned-kings, money-kings, and land-kings.”

—Abraham Lincoln, Speech at the Wisconsin State Fair, 1859

The GOP and Romney, or whomever, need to educate the sheeple - everything in the supermarket is brought in by truck. When the price of gas goes up, that cost is passed along to YOU! 0bama wants to raise the price of gas to $8 a gallon, so go figure how that is going to affect prices on the shelves. It has only just started.

The local store is no longer carrying the .50 brand of canned vegetables. In fact they aren’t carrying a lot of the cheaper brands they used to. It’s all about organic this and artisan that these days. Many of the shelves are empty and their game of “the truck didn’t come in” for their advertized sales is getting old.

I doubled the size of my garden from teeny tiny to little this year. Half a dozen tomatoes, three times that many peppers, lettuces, onions, greens, beans, peas, squashes, cukes, corn, and a couple pototo eyes from a potato that sprouted in the kitchen a few days ago. It’s coming along fine except for the weeds. Never seen weeds like this year. The plan is to weed again today. I also need to go through the cabinets again and get rid of never used stuff and stock up a bit more.
