Melanie, of Sparks from a Combustible Mind, is still filling in for Frank, aka PCGuy, who is taking a temporary hiatus from his Truthful Tuesday prompt. This week Melanie asks…
Have you personally felt the food ‘pinch’, whether due to cost or unavailability?
I have noticed that food prices are going up and the net weight of many products in boxes, cans, or jars has gone down, so we’re paying more and getting less.
Do you think there is a danger of us ‘running out of viable food’ due to lack of green space and non-polluted ground to grow things on?
Not in the near term, but maybe a few generations from now this will be an issue. Perhaps agricultural scientists can come up a way of growing crops in areas currently thought of as inhospitable or can otherwise restore currently polluted lands so crops can be grown on them again. And it might help if the politicians would put some limits on unbridled development of lands.
Have you changed your meal planning or schedule to include fewer meals or reduced portions?
No, not yet, anyway.
