As you plan your Spring and Summer garden, you’ll do well to consider that there are several crops that are short industry-wide this year due to weather. Be sure to plant peas, in particular, if you’re a fan since peas may be unavailable or costly in both canned and frozen packaging.
If possible, plant corn as well. Corn on the cob will be in short supply and suppliers don’t expect to be able to replenish the supply until mid-August.
As I receive other updates on produce and commodities, I’ll try to keep posts current. These unexpected shortages validate the need to store dehydrated and freeze dried products in order to have a well-rounded supply of foods we enjoy eating if certain foods become unavailable or very costly for one reason or another.
Preparedness brings peace…and good eating!
