While the economy goes bust, farm-to-table booms
I hope that the trend of more people buying directly from small local farms continues to increase. Perhaps this is a positive that can come from this event.

Some good news and bad news both in this article:

There is an argument to be made that the coronavirus pandemic could change the food supply chain for the long term. It may disrupt our across-the-board reliance on distant producers, processing plants, and large chain grocery stores.

In the process, it would connect many of us to local food in the same way our parents and grandparents were.

For months during this pandemic, consumers who used to drive to the supermarket to buy prepackaged food are instead getting direct delivery literally from a farm to their table. People are getting hooked on direct sourcing for their food and are eating healthier because of it.


<snip>

One big problem he sees on the horizon for all farmers is getting the raw supplies and ingredients they need to produce the food to be sold. “We're at the tip of the iceberg at the moment, and I think we're going to see some major issues here very soon. Right now, egg cartons are super back-ordered. I can produce the eggs, but if I can't get the cartons to put them in, there's nothing I can do with the eggs.”

Bought seeds off ebay..16000 seeds 40 packs no tax no shipping fees..12.99

Fre days ago the same pack was 134.00..
Acts 2:37-38 King James Version (KJV)
37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

There's an older gentleman up the road who was set up outside a roadside cafe yesterday selling different produce. I caught him on the way back and bought some yummy cabbage and onions!
