Have you noticed food prices lately?

There is a new looming crisis at hand – soaring food prices! Food prices have jumped almost 20% since December of 2013 – a mere 5 months. And, the experts are saying that it will probably get worse before it gets better – if it ever does get better. This blows the doors off of the dire USDA prediction of a whopping 3% rise in food prices for 2014. Food prices went up, but did your income increase at all? In the midst of glowing economic growth reports and fluffy unemployment numbers, did anyone factor in runaway inflation? A few reasons for this exorbitant rise in food prices are that California produces the most vegetables in the good old US of A and is going through the worst drought in its history, fuel prices are on the rise again – plus – the grand-total US cattle herd is also the smallest it has been since 1951. Time for some good old urban chickens and planter-box veggie gardens if you ask me.
