Canned Tomato Products Lover? Stock Up Now

A Severe drought is crushing California tomato crops and shortages are coming - fast.

Soup season is upon us, but one of the main ingredients for soups, chilis and stews may be in short supply: canned tomatoes.

We've been hearing for a few months now that a historic drought in California is impacting farmers' tomato crop yields this year and unfortunately, it doesn't look like the drought is going to end anytime soon.

The California League of Food Producers references a recent Reuters story that reports California's current drought actually started in 2020.

Another news story published on says that the drought is the worst the Golden State has seen in more than 1,200 years.

Just how bad is the drought in California?, a website managed by the National Integrated Drought Information System, reports that 99.8% of the entirety of California is suffering from moderate drought, while 91.8% of the state is in severe drought; 40.9% of the state is in extreme drought; and 16.6% of the state is in exceptional drought, hitting its agricultural belt hard.

In addition to the impact tomato crop shortages may have in fresh produce displays at grocery stores, the shortages will likely impact other household staples like canned tomatoes and tomato sauce.

"Ninety-five percent of the processed tomato products consumed in the United States comes right here from California's Central Valley," Mike Montna, president and CEO of the California Tomato Growers Association, told CNN.

"Mainly the tomatoes from the growers that I represent go to your ketchups, pizza sauces, your retail sauces that you see at the supermarket."

Those of you who rely on canned tomato products,, whether it be whole, crushed, diced, Puree or Sauce, had best stock up now, while you can.

We buy from Costco and stock up on stuff, we put the dates of expiration on the top of the cans or boxes, and it keeps thing pretty organized. Since canning lids are harder to find, one option is to dehydrate, or sun-dry the tomatoes. Store in an air-tight containers. Another option, is once the tomatoes are dried, grind into a tomato powder. I thinking the best option might be just to grow your own baby tomatoes inside or in a greenhouse. Keep in mind that tomatoes are inflammatory, so it is good in moderation. I read that the Incas gave their neighbors tomatoes, and corn to weaken them before going to war with them .

New King James Version

Who blows the coals in the fire,
Who brings forth an [a]instrument for his work;
And I have created the spoiler to destroy.
17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.

14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

Planted 80 tomato plants this year - Mountain Springs and Heinz 1350's - and canned them all!

Please do tell us your daily canning schedule…..OMG…..LOL.
Pressure canners or water bath?
A suggestion for canning lids is tattler reusable lids…..they last a lifetime……you may need to buy new rubber gaskets every 20 years, but the lids might last longer than any of us here will live. I think the website is something like reusable canning
I went over the Cliff and bought 1,000

America is Babylon:

A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols. (Jer 50:38)
Be sure you are saved and not just think you are. Jesus warned us in Matt 7:13-15.

Thus was this Chaldean queen a fit and remarkable prototype of the "Woman" in the Apocalypse, with the golden cup in her hand, and the name on her forehead, "Mystery, Babylon the Great, the MOTHER of harlots and abominations of the earth." The Apocalyptic emblem of the Harlot woman with the cup in her hand was even embodied in the symbols of idolatry, derived from ancient Babylon, as they were exhibited in Greece; for thus was the Greek Venus originally represented, (see note below) and it is singular that in our own day, and so far as appears for the first time, the Roman Church has actually taken this very symbol as her own chosen emblem. In 1825, on occasion of the jubilee, Pope Leo XII struck a medal, bearing on the one side his own image, and on the other, that of the Church of Rome symbolised as a "Woman," holding in her left hand a cross, and in her right a CUP, with the legend around her, "Sedet super universum," "The whole world is her seat." Now the period when Semiramis lived,--a period when the patriarchal faith was still fresh in the minds of men, when Shem was still alive, * to rouse the minds of the faithful to rally around the banner for the truth and cause of God, made it hazardous all at once and publicly to set up such a system as was inaugurated by the Babylonian queen.

If you look up you will see what's causing drought. They are spraying the skies with multiple poisons. Dane Wigington has been trying to get people to wake up to what they are doing. He has a channel on youtube.

They can't handle it. They spray the skies with heavy metals to control the weather and it is NOT to bring us more rain. Probably an accelerate for the fires they have had over the years. Would not be surprised is the skies were being seeded with nanotechnology. Its just sad that people can't imagine, our elites, who own our gubmints, do not have our best interests in mind. I wonder how much the quotas are for the WEF to decrease the population?

Isaiah 3:4

And I will give children [to be] their princes
Either in age, or in understanding, who are really so, or act like such; and in either sense, when this is the case, it is an unhappiness to a nation, ( Ecclesiastes 10:16 ) : and babes shall rule over them;
which is the same as before. The Targum is,

``the weak shall rule over them;''

such who are weak in their intellectuals, or are of mean pusillanimous spirits, "effeminate", as the Vulgate Latin version renders it; and so as "children" are opposed to the "ancient", that should be taken away, these are opposed to "men of might" and courage, who would now be wanting: or "men of illusions", as in the margin; such as were subtle as foxes, and should deceive them, and impose upon them, and were audacious and impudent, and would mock at them, and despise them. So Jarchi and Abarbinel; and according to this sense of the word the Septuagint, Syriac, and Arabic versions, render it, "mockers shall rule over them".

This drought is not God's judgement!
It's stupid leftist lunatic environmental wack jobs sending the stored water downstream without diversion to the farmers!
As fast as it can be drained!
THIS is true man-made climate change! This was done by fools who think farming hurts the environment and farmers need to join the real world and get their food from the store like everyone else!
Hard to believe but some people are now so disconnected they have no idea that the grocery store is not a food factory. They have no clue where their food comes from. Most of them would freak if they knew their food was recently in the dirt

Isaiah 3

4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.

...of the down votes. Isaiah 3 is the perfect scripture of God's judgement on a sinful nation. So much of it is here in the US now there's no way God will look the other way, for His name's sake.
+5 # I Partially AgreeItsMePaulaC 2022-10-29 09:04
Yes the leftwing nutjobs are are trying to cause famine, etc. They're being allowed to think they're in control....for now. But I believe it is ultimately God who gives and withholds the rain as part of his judgment on evil. And don't forget, Psalm 9:17 promises that the nations who forget God will be turned into hell.

Yes some think the grocery store is where food comes from. Sad. I got used to eating store bought eggs for so long that I don't like the taste of farm fresh brown eggs. I joke and tell my husband I need to go to Aldi and get myself some real eggs like everyone else does. Lol. Funny, not funny.

Even explain how the fertilizer plants have been blown up and burned down, how at best there will be only 50% as much crop yield/acre beginning next year due to lack of fertilizer…..if everything goes perfectly, how subsequent years will be as bad or worse unless we get these BASTARD SATANIC PROGRESSIVES OUT OF OFFICE AND HUNT THE GLOBALISTS……..
RESPONSE………CRICKETS OR “ I know how to hunt.”
I literally am doing far more to have food for my sanctuary dogs than anyone I know is doing for their family and kids.
All of us here who are older consume significantly less food than we did when we were young, so we do not need to be so concerned as middle aged and younger.
By the time you are our age, metabolism is dramatically lower…….THANK GOD.
