Two months ago we couldn’t get vegetable oil. We had limited quantities of olive oil, but no sunflower or corn or rapeseed oil.
We have all of the vegetable oils now, but we have no mustard.
When I bought salmon for dinner last week the price had increased to the point that I declared it our last salmon dinner – at least for the foreseeable future.
Fortunately, the supplies of fish and seafood at the frozen food store seem unaffected – so far.
I prefer to buy frozen scallops anyway. They are less expensive than fresh and I can get them without the coral. I don’t really like the coral so I’d rather not pay for it.

Grilled Scallops, Caper Remoulade
Skewering the scallops makes them easy to handle. A basket would also work well.

The sunflowers are in bloom.
They seem to be everywhere this year. Sunflowers and wheat. I don’t know when those decisions are made (before or after Putin invaded Ukraine) but I’m glad to see it all.
I took this photo on Tuesday:
The wheat hadn’t been harvested yet.
Rain was expected yesterday, so the harvester worked from morning until just after midnight on Wed. to get it all done. The rain started just as he finished.
This was taken on the lane leading to our house – all the wheat is safely harvested.
BTW, despite all the romantic comments about sunflowers – they do not ‘follow the sun’. We’re surrounded by sunflowers more years than not. They face the direction of the morning sun. They face that direction all day.
Luckily, they also face us so we get the nice views.
