We grocery shopped for the week yesterday afternoon. I understand that prices for all things, for all people, are increasing all around us. But I would like to know why it is that lettuce, of all things, has skyrocketed to double its former price? Isn’t lettuce grown quite similarly to carrots? Beets? Celery? These items have suffered only marginal blows. But I’ve watched the leafy green stuff jump from an affordable and friendly .70 a head to $1.89 a head in no time flat! Cheese louise! I suppose I’ll just be glad that carrots, beets and celery haven’t followed suit and hope to heaven that they don’t any time soon.
