The cost of food continues to rise. If you didn't realize it, you
either don't do the grocery shopping, or you haven't ask the person who
You can do a search on the 'net
and find all kinds of numbers indicating how much food products have gone up and what others believe they will do in the future.
The viewpoint I liked was from Lynn Carpenter
she believes "We have been enjoying a 60-year trend of low food prices that is crashing to an abrupt end this very year."
Lynn says (and I agree) the government numbers released, and what I see
at the grocery store never seem to match up. She recommends figuring
out how many hours you must work each week to pay for food.
She did some serious research and came up with some very interesting numbers! You can read it all here
But all that aside if you go to the store a few times you get an idea
of what it costs to eat and you suddenly feel a bit of gnawing worry.
Now the mistake you might make is to leave the grocery store, get the
groceries put away, and dismiss the gnawing worry telling yourself
"it'll all work out somehow." Don't fall into that mindset!
Nothing just "works itself out" and if it does, it is seldom in your favor
Planting a garden is a proactive way to cut your food bill and improve your overall health.
Feeling overwhelmed when you think of
gardening? Start Small
of the best ways to get started growing your own food is to start
small. Plant a few tomato plants and some bell peppers along the house.
Make a garden four feet by eight feet. Make raised beds etc.
I love High Density Gardening
by Ric Wiley. Gardening is work no matter how you cut it but you can
reduce the workload and space needed by using Ric's methods.
He covers everything from A to Z in this ebook.
- How to plan your High Density Garden in order that you can maximize the quantity of crops you can grow
- How to build a High Density Gardening bed
- How to propagate seeds
- Home made compost. How to make it quickly.
- Much more
I'm a lover of ebooks because you can be reading them five minutes
after you decide to purchase them! Which might be why I spend so much at
Amazon on my Kindle.
Take a look at High Density Gardening and download a copy and get started planning now. It takes some planning, money and effort to harvest a successful garden.
But it is worth it!
Imagine your very own lush, green, vibrant garden this spring. Can't
you taste the garden fresh tomato's, beans, onions, peppers, cucumbers,
water melons, peas, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, sweet corn, cabbage,
you get the point……
until next time!
