I was searching for fruit markets in my area to see what time they close. It's 7:00pm here by the way. Anyway, I clicked on one of the websites near me called Cossel Farms, Inc. As I was reading it (trying to...bad colors) some of the content caught my attention. I'll quote one passage and post the link. The website is pretty bad because they used colored background where the words are. I almost didn't bother reading it but I'm glad I stuck with it. Bolding mine. "Our web site is constantly being updated. We are making an effort to present you with our small specialized product line. At Cossel Farms, Inc., a variety of mulch and topsoil products are available at really great prices. Last year our wonderful handpicked local fresh sweet corn was $4.50/dz. With all the crop losses this year due to flooding and cold spring weather dont be suprised to see $5-6/dz Our current firewood prices will remain the same until December 2019, when they might be raised, if the current diesel fuel price up over $.50 from last year - around $2.99/gal now keeps rising in Cleveland since that's the biggest variable cost to run our machinery and Ohio just increased the diesel fuel tax 20 cents taking affect in July 2019. The emphasis of our site is on our local farm market and the items that you can buy there or have us deliver to you in the Cleveland area." http://www.cosselfarms.com/ I read on another site that the cost of all vegetables would probably be higher this year because of the rain. I can't find that site now. Sigh. So while I was focusing on the price of corn, don't be surprised if the prices of all crops are higher. I reported last week that our gas tax raised .10 a gallon but I didn't know it went up .20 for diesel. If you eat a lot of canned or frozen veggies, now might be the time to stock up. Maybe dehydrate some.
