Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Rationing (limiting) food?

Going Green, Unintended consequences

Now we are rationing limiting food?

I just heard on a news blip that Sam's Club was limiting the amount of bulk rice you could buy at a time. (The news man first referred to the limit as rationing.) Reason? Because of growing shortages of rice on the world market.

The news bit included a sound bite from a woman from some national bakers association. She said rye is already in short supply too and that by summer, it may be hard to find at all. That is not good news for me because I love rye bread!

None of this bodes well for future food supplies and prices here in the U.S. or in the world.

A friend I spoke with yesterday mentioned that she was going to plant a larger vegetable garden this summer. Seems it is time to bring back the Victory Garden.
