Don't know how wonderbar they taste, but spices make up for a lot. Also consider how many recipes that call for eggs. If you need an egg, you need an egg. No good substitute. Here' one source you can check: Augason Farms from Midway, which has the best price we've seen so far, but check around. – ALERT

Dan the Food Industry Executive on What to Expect in the Coming Months – HOLLY NOTE: Yesterday at the grocery store was yet another 'education.' Everyone knows food costs are moving upward and despite that, stock was good until this weekend. We've warned for nearly 3 months about the latest avian flu outbreak. Now we're seeing its impact in supplies.

Disturbingly the chicken section was completely empty. Zip, Zero. Nada. Found some at the second grocery store, but supplies were meager at best – 8 packs of skinless, deboned breasts. That was it.

Wandered down every isle taking a mental inventory: eggs were good, but how long will that be the case if laying hens get bird flu? Milk so-so, but the candy isle, which is huge, was wiped out by 50%.

If chicken gets scarce and people can't afford beef, the next thing that's hit will be pork and fish. For those incorporating more beans and rice – those 2 foods seem to be the most oft-recommended alternatives. To avoid bean burnout, consider growing peas this year. They have nearly as many grams of protein as beans.

Toilet paper and cleaning products were fully stocked. Last we checked, a Charmin sandwich, seasoned with Comet, isn't too tasty. – audio of the week 1

Fertilizer Prices Spike, Smaller Harvests Expected – HOLLY NOTE: Again, we're advising you to have your own garden. You can grow in traditional rows, raised beds or in pots and containers. There is a way for everyone to have their own veggies.

This article states that a bag of fertilizer that sold for $11 last year is now at $20. Not only will this translate to smaller harvests, but much higher grocery prices.Last week we posted another article warning on another aspect of skyrocketing produce costs: Produce Growers on the West Coast Are Paying Nearly Triple Trucking Rates, According to Reuters.

Growers can't pay triple shipping costs without passing it onto consumers. Additionally, we're seeing more recalls on veggies and fruits for listeria, salmonella and E coli. Considering these 3 things and the #BareShelvesBiden issue, it's more important than ever to have your own Victory Garden.

Now would be a good time to get your seeds. While some of you are knee-deep in snow and weathering blisteringly cold temps, it seems weird to think about gardens. Since Stan and I are growing our own seedlings, we'll be starting them end of February, which just 5 weeks away. They'll be ready for April 30th planting.

If possible, buy heirloom. It's another money saver to keep seeds for next year. Too, no one knows what's coming down the pike or what availability will be considering the impact of COVID with forced lockdowns.

Garden Gold: Grow Maximum Veggies With Minimum Effort lists over 150 heirloom and organic seed companies for the U.S. and Canada, plus ones for arctic and sub-arctic growers. Since Garden Gold was written several years ago, hopefully most are still in business.

You'll be able to save big by growing your own veggies (and some fruits), depending on where you live. Best of all, you'll be outside soaking up COVID-fighting vitamin D and get good exercise without realizing you're exercising at all! ALERT

Be Concerned That China Is a Shadow Owner in the US Pork Industry – HOLLY NOTE: I wrote about this in
Prophetic Perils: End Time Events Revealed as a true danger – giving control of our food supplies to foreigners. China bought Smithfield Foods from us in 2013.

Smithfield's is the world's largest pork producer and it's now in China's hands. Even more short-sighted, as of Dec. 2019, foreigners own over 35 million acres of prime U.S. farmland.

In addition to owning over 500 farms in the US, Smithfield (now China's) contracts with another 2,000 independent farms around the country to grow their pigs. With the purchase of Smithfield's for nearly $5 billion, China is one of the largest foreign owners of American farmland. It's the largest Chinese acquisition of an American company to date.

Though not a foreigner, last year Bill Gates bought 269,000 acres of rich farmland across 19 states. Between Gates' involvement with vaccines and farmland, it's all a bit creepy.

Get Your Seeds Early Ahead of the 2022 Season, Sault Gardeners Say – HOLLY NOTE: This isn't just applicable to Canada, but to the U.S. and other western nations.

Yesterday we ordered onion sets from Dixondale Farms in Texas. They've continually produced the best and largest onions to date. Last year planted them right next to onion sets purchased from Lowe's and Walmart. Dixondale produced onions that were 1/3 to 1/2 larger.

Their sets are only about 1/4" wide or slightly bigger, but much smaller that what you get from big stores' garden centers. When unboxing them, we thought, "Well, this was a mistake!" being so small.

Surprisingly, they grew very large – 5" on average, some larger and none less than 4" – and taste marvelous. We harvested ours in October, didn't wash them or pull off the outer husks. Put them in large boxes in the garage for coolness and to dry. 3-1/2 months later, today, we're still enjoying them. NOTE: Red onions don't last as long in storage, nor do they grow as large.

Yes, we already ordered our sets because you can specify when you want them shipped and you get first dibs on what's available. Check their chart to see if you should purchase Short-, Intermediate- or Long Day onions for the best results.

If using our Super Soil recipe, in the first year of mixing it up, extra fertilizer is pretty unnecessary. In subsequent years, as nutrients wane, if you don't mix new Super Soil, you may want to add fertilizer. Last word on fertilizer:

Dixondale has a 12 lb bag of their specially formulated 10-20-10 fertilizer for $44.95 – up $4 from last year. Their fertilizer "contains a unique blend of organic humic acids and essential micro-nutrients such as magnesium, zinc, boron, copper, iron, manganese, and molybdenum." Notice that 2 of these nutrients are vital in fighting COVID.

You can buy a much smaller bag – a 4 pounder – for $23.95. Since the 12 lb bag fertilizes 45 bunches (we bought 3 that's around 50-75 onions each bunch), we're set for the next decade for plant food. Because it's dry granular or crystalized, it keeps indefinitely.

Check the savings. With the purchase of a 12 pound bag, you get over 3 pounds free. More importantly, you're assured of product because the fertilizer shortage continues.
Walmart Ramps Up Direct-to-Fridge Option to 30 Million Homes – HOLLY NOTE: This would be fine for shelf stable items, canned goods, cleaning products, toiletries, paper products, and most dairy items etc. but when it comes to meats and produce, we want to select the cuts and check expiration dates. For produce, we don't want to see bruised fruit, soft spots, or been-on-the-shelf-for-a-week type veggies.

You guys likely do this too: When picking foods, we always take products from the back of the shelf. Their expiration dates are likely the freshest if stores are doing proper rotation.
