Ever notice?

Hope you all read and ponder over what we are doing to ourselves and to our produce, just like I have been, since morning.

Maybe it’s best that we revert to the old days where we grew our own food. Or bought local. Or cooked for ourselves…

It seems today everything, including mass produced consumer goods are dearer.
