Rant - food prices

Postby OnceHarmony on Wed Jan 13, 2016 4:53 pm

I pick up a bag of grapes and take it to the till. Rings in at $21. No grapes went home with me. Still shaking my head. I'm hoping I can get use to the rise in food prices.

oh i know! it's crazy the cost of produce at the moment, paying $6 for a celery bunch, $10 for a caulifour, $8.50 for a 1lb clamshell of strawberries.. and this isn't for organic either!

At these prices - I might have to get into gardening this summer/spring and freeze what we grow. It is insane how pricey some things have gotten...
