In hindsight, this probably deserved its own thread.

By no means a complete list, but a good start.

Taking prepping too far

I've just thrown away like 8 bags of legumes and cereals (some 4kg in all), which I bought like 8 months ago as part of my deep pantry prepping. They were all infested with bugs. Clearly the supermarket and the food suppliers are better and more efficient at managing storage of food than I am.

Good harvet, bad harvest

This person got 260 pounds of cherries off their tree this year. Yet in the comments on the photo (posted on Facebook) one person lamented that they got basically no cherries off their tree at all! Why is it that some harvests go well and others not so well? Here are the main reasons, and some solutions.

the Export Land Model as applied to food

The Export Land Model says net oil exporters will, due to dwindling oil reserves, eventually keep the oil for home use and no longer export it. As an example, this recently happened to Egypt: Egypt went from being a net oil exporter to a net oil importer I believe this was one of the factors in their recent civil unrest, for when there was no sale of oil for hard currency to buy food, it made food very expensive for the average Egyptian.

Suburban Foraging

I'm starting a new topic on suburban foraging. So much food is going to waste around us! If you have a neighbor who has an apple tree, pear tree, fig or peach tree that just drops all its fruit an no one uses it, why not claim it and store it?

A local church lets us can all their pears from a 30-ft tree, and a neighbor just called us over to pick 10 pounds of free honey figs. My girlfriend Sarah in the midwest is a pediatritian, but she cans all the neighbor's fruit that they don't want and gives them some of the jam that results.
