Americans are suffering from the highest inflation rate. Perhaps the aftershocks of COVID and geopolitical skirmishes are felt across the U.S. Groceries, DIY foods, fuel, and electricity are at high rates throughout the states. Americans can either blame the two-year-long pandemic or the current geopolitical skirmishes. Either of the two, or both, are true, but at the end of the day, you are likely to bring something to the table, regardless of the situation.
This is what Americans are doing. They are taking unprecedented steps to cope with the high inflation rate. What is bothering most Americans is the expensive price of food. To cope with this crisis, they are switching to the field and trying to grow organic food independently. Consequently, the expensive shelves of foods and groceries are left empty at supermarkets across the country.
Americans Are Growing Organic Food to Cope With the Inflation
Thus, Americans are considering going to farming along with their full-time jobs. Kari Ainsworth, a resident of North Carolina, is one of those Americans. Apart from her full-time work as a factory manager, Ainsworth is growing organic foods in her garden. She tells a local news outlet that food prices are too expensive for her to afford. Apart from groceries, she is growing dog, cat, and other DIY foods in her fields.
However, her sole objective is to cope with the inflation and prepare for the financial recession that looms over the head of Americans. This summer, Ainsworth has already grown strawberries and other seasonal foods. Likewise, she is committed to expanding her farming to produce food for her pets as well. Ainsworth is looking forward to raising chickens and beekeeping at her rented house in North Carolina. Apart from doing all that, Ainsworth is still uncertain if that is enough for her. She is also worried about the unclear future that awaits her ahead.
However, Ainsworth is not the only American who struggles with the all-time high inflation rate. Instead, hundreds of Americans, just like Ainsworth, are worried about their finances. Since they can not make enough to bring dinner to the table, they are taking ‘extreme steps.’
Expensive Supermarkets Are Left Empty!
Since most Americans are growing organic food back home, the store shelves are left empty. Most Americans do not consider groceries and pet foods from supermarkets. Of course, the growing inflation is to be blamed.
Other Americans also look for creative ideas to cope with the soaring prices of food. Like Ainsworth, they are growing organic food in their fields and turning to gardening and farming. Although this does not seem to be the solution to the problem, in the long run, this somehow addresses the problem for the time being. Consequently, this also makes the expensive shelves empty in supermarkets.
