Corn

So I went to the local farmers' market today and couldn't believe the price of corn this year; six bucks for a dozen!

The three dollars that I have become accustomed to paying for a dozen for as many summers as I can remember now gets you six cobs of corn.

It's no wonder that China will shift its dependence from corn to sorghum, cassava and sweet potato plants to make bio-fuel in the next five years.

Some good news on the corn front :)

After visitng a few other local farmers' markets this weekend, I found Peaches 'n Cream as low as $4 / baker's dozen. Sweet Corn was as low as 5 bucks per dozen.

Be sure to support your local farmers this harvest season!
