2 dozen eggs, a package of bulk ground beef and bulk sausage and a beautiful hunk of sirloin steak that’s big enough for 2 dinners from Rocking F, potatoes and tomatoes from Faucette Produce, cheese from the Mulners, lettuce from Weatherhand (I think that’s his name) farm, strawberries (!) from High Rock Berries, sprouts from Snow Creek Organics, our chicken from the Petersons.
A lot of things were just a little bit more expensive this morning; the vendors apologized when they handed me back my change, talking about feed and fuel and looking worried. I told them not to apologize, that we eat a heck of a lot better eating from them than we do from conventional sources, and we’re glad to pay it, and we know things are getting a more expensive. Their worry makes me worry, though. There’s been some kerfuckle on the internet lately about impending food crises, and that, I haven’t taken all that seriously, but when the people that grow my food start looking worried and talking worried, that I do take seriously.
