Here in the US things are getting a bit hairy at the supermarkets. There is definitely a shortage of food on the shelves and in the dairy and meat departments. With a shortage of truck drivers and the storms that we have been having the last few weeks, a loaf of bread is silver.

Here in France too, surprisingly shortages in the vegetable department, as in iceberg lettuce, green beans have been sparse for months. Sometimes we have fresh fish other times not. Some brands of TP and kleenex and soap have been off th list for click ordering and home delivery since over a year ago when the lockdowns began.
Costs also have gotten higher and food was already expensive in France compard to other eu countries we lived in before like spain and italy. Where will it all end. With rents and food prices rising and quality and choice declining, seems Covid has really changed my expectations of the future.

I haven't noticed any shortages food wise here in BC where I am, although prices have inflated which could be reducing demand, COVID was a slight benefit to rents in BC, did lower them a tad in some specific spots like Downtown Vancouver but also caused inflated rents outside of Downtown Vancouver, so overall its likely made housing affordability worse.

Can’t say I have noticed shortages in groceries, apart from some seasonal fruit.

I think I did alright on this produce box; I wanted some carrots to make hash and saw those little ones peeking out.

What I ended up with is those carrots, 4 big bananas, a grapefruit, 2 pomegranates, 3 mandarins, 2 oranges, carton of oyster mushrooms, carton of big stuffer button mushrooms and a handful of loose ones, and 3 limes, 1 of which is gracing a vodka and tonic as I write.

I really love those product boxes you can buy. I'd love that.

We have a pomegranite tree in the front garden area. but they never fully ripen off on one side as it is not in mega full sun.

Please don't laugh at me, but how in the world do you eat a pomergranite? Do you eat the seeds only or only the white part of the fruit?

Not eaten one since I was a child, seeds only. Mum used to cut it in half, then we picked the seeds out with a hair pin/grip.

I have one left; didn't do quite as nice a job on one this morning but hey-ho. There are a gaggle of pomegranate videos on youtube, with music so more entertaining. It's supposed to be good for you which is a bonus.
