Fennel - Why is it so expensive this year?
it's not just fennel, it's EVERYTHING.
i almost screamed the other day when i saw that the price of a small bunch of black kale had gone up to $3 at my local Co-op.
Everything that doesn't grow in your area is expensive. This is due mainly to the increased fuel costs, but also to the fact that many agricultural areas (FL and CA, especially) experienced huge crop losses due to freezing conditions. I cannot wait for my first CSA box in June. I'm sick of paying high prices for mediocre produce.
