All six kids warned me that shelves were bare of essentials... my essentials is COFFEE and DOG FOOD.
Our Amish neighbor has been hunting for deer slugs for a month so he can hunt deer over Thanksgiving. Said he finally found some that he is sharing with 4 other families. Factories making it was shut down due to Covid. He was glad he had gotten a couple deer during bow season.
Things you take for granted as not available like they used to be.
I have 8 spots on shelves that have nothing. Between us and Daughter 4 we have cleared those spots. That is 120 pints of food. In one month gone. Not counting anything from freezers or fresh. Thirty pounds of sweet potatoes gone. I have two for Tday and Daughter is out. I usually buy 50 lbs bags of potatoes for everyone. Can't even order them. Out of 60 lbs of red onions I have maybe one pound left. Had 30 lbs yellow onions , they are gone.
Can you tell we eat?
It will be interesting to see what we run out of completely and what we still have when garden starts coming in. I know I did not get any peas to grow this year so that is a BIG need to grow next spring and again in fall. Hope the garden season is better than it was this year.
Do you have a pantry? Are you stocked for the winter? How are the grocery store shelves in your area?
