The Difference Between Life And Death Will Be Growing And Storing Your Own Foods If America Keeps Traveling Down This Road Of Food Shortages And Inflation We're Now On 

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

For those that have not started their preparations for the Spring gardening, now is the time. Not just because of the time of year but because we are seeing global situations exacerbating the food crisis, with nations limiting certain exports in order to feed their own citizens, such as wheat, which we discussed in a recent article titled "'This Is Already A Perfect Storm' Expert Warns -  War Is Already Decimating An Already Depleted Food Supply, A Situation Which Is Rapidly Becoming Worse."

I linked to the previous piece because  this article is about getting our gardens in order, getting seeds, soils and canning supplies, and addressing the rapidly growing pet food supply shortage, etc..... rather than repeating what was just covered a few days ago.

Many ANP readers are preppers, so most will already have extra basics, freeze dried meats, vegetables and other survival food products, but with the rising costs of food overall, it would benefit all Americans to grow their own produce, learn to can foods, and use their hard-earned money for other needs and necessities.

In February 2022, food prices were already approaching "record highs," and the global situation has devolved considerably since then.

Via RCP Senate Gov.: (March 10, 2022)

Surging inflation is straining household budgets, as things like rent, filling up at the gas station, and turning on the heat at home have gotten more expensive. Consumers are also facing sticker shock at the breakfast table. In February, the price of whole milk was up 12.4% from one year earlier. Coffee prices jumped by 10.5%, the cost of eggs went up 11.4%, and the price of bacon soared by 18.8%. A family making spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner must contend with the 13.6% increase in the price of ground beef, compared to one year ago. If they want to grill pork chops, the price has gone up 13.4%. If that same family wants to make a “budget-friendly” meal with dried beans, they still face a 9.6% price increase for the ingredients. Parents were already dealing with higher prices for essentials like diapers, and now they’re paying more for baby food, with prices up 8.4% in February versus one year ago.

The rising prices for food stem at least in part from rising costs for producers across the agriculture industry. As of February, prices for fertilizer were double or triple the cost compared to a year ago. As of March 7, the average price of diesel fuel was $1.70 per gallon higher than a year earlier. The price of feed has also increased........

In this article we will cover both indoor growing, urban gardening where there is limited space and how to use it to the best of your ability and learning to can your own foods, which by the way, appears far harder than it actually is once you know what you are doing.

One specific shortage that continues to worsen is pet food. It started with canned wet foods, but as of the latest images we have received, it appears that even some places are running out of dried foods for our pets.

While animals have nutritional needs different than their humans do, there are vet approved, homemade meals that use the same ingredients that people eat, just prepared differently, including less spice content.

The two links below offer ideas for both homemade cat and dog foods.

We continue to see report after report of can shortages, due to aluminum shortages, so canning is something we should all learn and practice, not just in the present day, but going forward so we are never caught up in a situation like we are seeing today.

The image below was emailed to ANP  with the following note:

I usually send you information from the southeastern Wyoming area but I traveled to Phoenix for work and observed similar conditions with empty shelves also.

Safeway in Chandler Az.

In the pasta aisle the jars of sauce have been spread out single jars to the front of the shelf in order to appear full.

Thanks again for reporting real news.

I fear for the unprepared but they have been amply warned.

Reader Image: Safeway, AZ 

In our previous piece we discussed the pasta shortages and supplied links to pasta makers, flours, and other things needed to make homemade pasta, so now we move along to the gardening preps, and how to can, so you can make your spaghetti and fruit sauces, can them and have no worries of whether you will find bare shelves when looking for these items or whether the cost has become to high to be worth buying.  

Homemade tastes better too!

The list of shortages and foods seeing price hikes are growing every day and it is time for Spring garden prepping, but more importantly, with the other shortages aside from "foods," causing the bare shelves, such as aluminum, the food supply is getting hit from different directions. Learning to can, and canning as much of a variety of foods, sauces, and meals as possible, will take away a lot of the food uncertainty and the upcoming pain at the cash register.
