As Food Prices Are Experiencing Huge Price Increases, Apartment Dwellers Can Save A Small Fortune From Indoor Fruit And Vegetable Gardening 

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

In our latest prepping piece about the coming spring and getting your outdoor gardens prepared while sprouting your early spring fruits and vegetables, we said we would address indoor gardening for those that have limited space to grow fruits and vegetables outdoors, or have no outdoor space for apartment dwellers. 

For those that missed the outdoor gardening preparation piece, titled "It Will Be Too Late When You Are Already Starving: Never Has It Been More Important To Grow Your Own Food - Getting Your Fruit And Vegetable Garden Ready For Spring," can be found here.

FOOD IN THE NEWS......

While the media has been uber-busy playing defense for Joe Biden and his merry band of liberal masters, local media reports and ANP readers have been reporting what they are seeing in their own grocery stores, specifically in terms of the skyrocketing prices.

U.S. Inflation calculator, which shows the year over year change in food price increases, describes the latest numbers in the following manner:

The average price of food in the United States rose 3.6% in the 12 months ended February, slowing from the previous 3.8% increase, according to the latest inflation data published March 10, 2021 by the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Food inflation is a major part of the Consumer Price Index. It is always discussed in the monthly CPI report. It includes pricing changes for "food away from home" and "food at home" — for example, the pair in February posted respective year-over-year increases of 3.7% and 3.5%.

It should comes as no shock that given the pandemic lockdowns, while businesses deemed "non-essential" were forced to close, that food prices will have risen both in 2020 and are still increasing in 2021, yet some people still deny the fact that these increases even exist.

Maybe they simply do not notice the differences in the amount of food they get for the same amount of money or a larger bill to get the same amount as previous years, and maybe they are simply people that believe if the MSM isn't saying it, it can't be true no matter what their wallets say!

Believe it or not, there are more of the latter types than it is comfortable to witness. 

Another factor being discussed is some stores haven't risen their prices very much as of yet, because they just nixed almost all "sales," which helped mitigate the increase in prices so that consumers didn't suffer from sticker shock, yet they are still paying more on average.

According to the research I have conducted, it appears that food prices, in-home dining and dining out is expected to rise yet another 2-3% in 2021, with some estimating it will be more if further lockdowns are mandated in some states.

While meats are not grown in the garden, we are seeing some massive increases being talked about, as one reader, PROUD,  stated recently "Chicken breasts on the bone in a family back that I always buy and BBQ up. It's usually $9.00-$10.00. Had company coming over or I would have left it, the SAME EXACT PACK $26.65

Others have also mentioned the increases in prices for meats at their grocery stores.

When growing your own fruits and vegetables it is pretty handy to have freeze dried or canned meats to add to soups, stews, salads, etc....

We'll link to some of those still available at a reasonable price below the indoor gardening portion of this article.

ADD MEAT TO YOUR HOMEGROWN VEGETABLES

As freeze dried emergency survival food is expensive, it can also be added in small amounts to your homegrown vegetables, which lessens the amount spent on each individual meal. 

Most also have a shelf life of 15 to 20+ years.

Some have become available again after the initial run on emergency survival foods when the pandemic first hit the news.

Freeze Dried:

Nutristore Freeze-Dried Ground Beef | Emergency Survival Bulk Food Storage | Premium Quality Meat

Nutristore Freeze Dried Beef Dices | Premium Quality

Nutristore Freeze-Dried Chicken | Emergency Survival Bulk Food Storage Meat

Wise Company Emergency Food Supply, Freeze Dried Meat Variety, 15-Year Shelf Life, 60 Servings 

Canned Meats & Proteins:

While the freeze dried foods have a extremely long shelf live and canned products have less, the prices for canned meats are still reasonable and can be used in the same ways as freeze dried meats.

BOTTOM LINE

With skyrocketing prices and projections that those food prices will be continuing to rise, it is critical to grow as much food as you can, limiting how much you have to buy at the grocery store.

Happy gardening folks!
