Any starving FReeper can come by and get a bag or two of frozen corn left over from last year. Screw food inflation. I give away at least half of what I grow.
I have lost 1/3 of my planted tomatoes the last two weeks to hail storms. Have one more hailstorm in the forecast for tonight. Still have about 50 tomato plants in reserve, to replace any more loss. Will we still have hail when the globe gets really warm?
My garden is pretty small, but I have 13 fruit trees and more deer than I can eat. I don’t anticipate starving either.
What I do anticipate is a lot of folks complaining about rising food costs.
If this gets more people to raise gardens, it may not be an entirely bad thing. Most Americans eat diets that are less healthy than they ought to be—not nearly enough green vegetables, too much refined sugar and starch.
When I get home from work today, I’ll munch on some fresh greens, and then plant another row of cantaloupes. :<)
