Experts Warn 'Major Food Security Threat' In 2023 With 4th Generation Farmer Insists--

• By Susan Duclos

Welcome to 2023. While the year seemed to simply fly by, by December, for Stefan and I, 2023 couldn't get here fast enough as Murphy's Law, where anything that can go wrong, does, became our nightmare.

The end of 2022 was a case of "when it rains it pours." The septic tank started sending sewage water into the basement, to which Stefan ended up shutting the water off until we could get someone out here to drain it (2 days without water). Our central gas heater went, something about a motor, but using the very same ideas and tips we offered as prepping advice, here we are, warm and cozy without central heat.  (Yeah for prepping!!!!!) Our dryer's heating element went, and last but not least, below the sink flooded while I was doing dishes and didn't realize it until my socks were soaked.

All in December of 2022. Good riddance.

So, yes, Stefan and I are quite happen 2022 is over and 2023 has begun. 

With that said, 2023 is not going to be all rainbows and flowers for America. 

We are warned that food inflation is still getting worse, with a farmer from TN asserting there will be a "major food security threat," in 2023, as we see predictions of food shortages that are expected, some the same as we have seen and some new shortages expected, as prices are also expected to continue to rise, while overall (not just food) inflation is touted as going down.
