As Susan reported in her story, Steve Quayle has been a proponent of 'prepping' since before prepping became 'a thing' and Susan had the opportunity to ask him what he believed to be the most ignored or under-addressed aspects of prepping in his researched opinion. And as she reported then, "we received back some of the best prepping tips we have ever heard".
With Steve emphasizing 'miracle foods' and 'hydroponics' as keys to survival at some point in the future with the global food supply taking one hit after another as was recently reported in this Bloomberg story published at Al Jazeera titled "Food prices are skyrocketing, and economists are worried", we find it very interesting that the Kroger grocery store chain, which runs nearly 2,500 grocery stores in 31 states, has recently announced that they, too, are going to 'hydroponics' and will be growing some vegetables IN STORE near the vegetable aisles as heard in the 1st video at the bottom of this story by 'Ice Age Farmer'.
Weather shocks, higher oil prices and a sharp depreciation in the US dollar could make food expensive, warn experts.
Food prices are climbing fast in the world's biggest emerging markets, posing a possible inflation threat after months of dormant pressures.
Asia's two largest developing economies face a price surge for staple products -- pork in China and onions in India -- that are central to consumers' diets. In Turkey and Nigeria, supply problems are driving up costs, while United Nations data show global food prices rose at the fastest pace in October in more than two years.
Nevertheless, the threat of a price shock is real. Nomura Holdings Inc. economists recently warned of three potential triggers of higher food costs -- weather-related shocks, higher oil prices and a sharp depreciation in the dollar -- saying emerging and frontier markets are most at risk since food costs make up a larger portion of their consumers' income.
So as we'll explore within this new ANP story, more and more 'danger signs' to the world's food supply are emerging, including here in America where the National Weather Service is now forecasting major Spring 2020 flooding in America's breadbasket as reported in this new US News & World Report story as also heard in the final video at the bottom of this story. So in the final section of our story below, we'll take another look at Steve Quayle's prior excellent advice about hydroponics, growing our own food and working towards accumulating an emergency food supply, thus attempting to ensure our own 'food security' in 2020.
A Direct Quote from a notice that was recently posted in a Kroger supermarket.: A Food Shortage Is on the Way…
I know that headline is alarming, but it is actually a direct quote from a notice that was recently posted in a Kroger supermarket. And as you will see below, similar notices are being posted in the canned vegetable sections of Wal-Mart stores nationwide.
I would encourage you to examine the evidence in this article very carefully and to come to your own conclusions about what is happening. At this moment, social media is buzzing with reports of shortages of canned vegetables all around the country. But so far, the mainstream media is being eerily quiet about all of this. Is there a reason why they aren’t saying anything? For months, I have been reporting on the extremely bizarre weather patterns that are causing crop failures all over the planet. But I certainly did not expect that we would already begin to see product shortages on the shelves of major U.S. supermarkets this summer.
What I am about to share with you is shocking, but the truth needs to get out. For those that share my articles on your own websites, I know that all of the images in this article are going to be an inconvenience, but it is imperative that you include them when you republish this article because they tell a story. All of the images are taken directly from Facebook, and they prove that we are now facing a nationwide shortage of canned vegetables.
SEATTLE Shoppers at Quality Food Centers soon will be able to pick up their bunches of kale and parsley just inches away from where they grow.
The Seattle grocery chain's parent company, Kroger, has partnered with German vertical-farming startup Infarm to hydroponically grow cilantro, kale and crystal lettuce right near the produce aisles of two Quality Food Centers in Kirkland and Bellevue, Wash. The first harvest of greens at those stores is due next week, and the company plans to expand to 15 QFCs in Washington and Oregon by April.
This is Infarm's first partnership in the U.S., but it has hundreds of vertical, stackable farm units sprouting fresh greens in supermarkets and restaurants all over the world. The company uses a cloud-based platform to control lighting and temperature remotely, which it says enables the same type of produce to grow optimally no matter where it is.
Vertical-farming startups have struggled to grow while navigating a relatively new industry. San Francisco-based Plenty was expected to open a 100,000-square-foot vertical farm in Kent, but after two years of planning it announced last week the farm was too tall for the facility it leased in 2017. Some others, including Canada's Local Garden Vancouver and Illinois-based FarmedHere, folded within a few years of breaking ground.
Infarm, like many vertical-farming companies, emphasizes the savings in money and energy that can be realized on transportation, water and chemical pesticides, while promising fresh and accessible food. Infarm says food plucked thousands of miles away loses nutrients and flavor in transportation.
Kroger said it expects to shave operation costs by using Infarm, and its produce only needs tending once or twice a week.
Hydroponics is a method of growing nutritious sprouts and other greens and vegetables that doesn't require soil. While researching this method, we were amazed to see how many different herbs, vegetables and greens can be grown using a hydroponics system. Lettuces, tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach and much more can offer decent yields, with no messy soil or the need for a full outside garden, and they can be grown all year round.
The great part of being able to grow sprouts, vegetables, fruits and greens indoors using hydroponics is that one is not limited by season or weather and can be harvested more rapidly than traditional gardening. The best part is using non-GMO seeds and growing your own food, you always know exactly what is in the food you are eating and how fresh it is. Protein Powders: One of the best tips Steve offered in our email communications (although I found them all important) was the need to accumulate protein powders, which in hindsight should have been common sense, but it is something we rarely see addressed when talking about prepping and survival.
We have often linked to freeze dried meat packages, and with the long shelf life, they are still an awesome investment for survival, but when talking about long-term survival, when the possibility of no longer being able to refresh your supply due to food shortages, having a large accumulation of protein powders to simply mix up and drink, is not only imperative but is also an answer for those without a lot of storage space for those large emergency survival food buckets.
Because as Susan had mentioned as the 'bottom line' of her story, the very last thing that 'globalists' want is self-sufficient Americans able to produce and provide their own food as it completely destroys the globalists long worked towards narrative, 'control the food, control the people'. The bottom line from her story.
We are reminded of something Steve Quayle first said last year, soon "the word normal will no longer exist," nor will we ever go back to the good old days that once were, as he reminded me just today, everything seems to be happening at once. With even the mainstream media talking about global food crisis, and the depopulation crowd still wanting 90 percent of the human population dead, the food shortages and upcoming increase in food prices force us to remember the old expression, "control the food, control the people."
Those prepared enough to survive on the food they grow year round, along with supplemental vitamins and protein sources, will not be the ones able to be controlled.
In the first video below, 'Ice Age Farmer' takes a long look at IT 'hitting the fan' as agriculture crumbles and even Kroger's sees the handwriting on the wall, growing vegetables in-store to help achieve 'food security'.
In the 2nd video below also from 'Ice Age Farmer' titled "ONE-TWO PUNCH: 2020 Spring Floods - #NoPlant20? - Farmers Under Surveillance" he reports that the National Weather Service had recently warned that a still waterlogged Midwest can expect a very cold and wet winter, likely leading to major Spring flooding in 2020 and a repeat of the cycle we've witnessed in 2019.
Also warning that the war on food continues as banks/credit cards start breaking down your grocery bill by carbon footprint, he concludes by asking and answering: "Are you growing your own food yet? It's time."
