Well, I decided to bite the bullet and get my Costco membership renewed TODAY.

I hemmed and hawed when the lady processing my membership asked me why I was renewing. Then I finally admitted that I want to stock up on food. (See, I didn’t want to sound like a crazy lady.) She said that a lot of people have come in to join or renew their memberships for the same reason! That’s why she renewed as well. 

While I’m not a prepper, at least (almost) no one laughs at them anymore.

Supply chain issues coupled with this doesn't sound like a great combination.

His hundreds of thousands of acres may be intended for growth of mR N A enhanced vegetables.  Haven't you heard, it's the food of the future!  One lettuce or spinach plant will V. one person for 6 months.  V. bananas will be grown for children (and adults) who don't like to eat their veggies.

We know even non-GMO organically grown produce can show traces of glyphosate -- windblown from other farms.  How will the super V veggies superpowers be contained?  Will non-V veggies even be available?

Time to return the "V" to Victory Gardens. Elsa asked a while back what the most valuable commodity is.  It may well be Untainted, Organic, non-GMO seeds.

I understand there is a glass shortage now. Affecting beer industry.

I did see the snapple is now sold in plastic bottles.

@elsa It looks like it’s tied into a sand shortage.

This will be problematic for everyone. Windows, phones, computers, jars or other items are made with glass as well. Glass is made from a specific type of sand, one that is also used in construction and infrastructure.
