Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
Is one allowed to eat from the 7th year produce indefinitely?
וְלִ֨בְהֶמְתְּךָ֔ וְלַֽחַיָּ֖ה אֲשֶׁ֣ר בְּאַרְצֶ֑ךָ תִּהְיֶ֥ה כָל־תְּבוּאָתָ֖הּ לֶאֱכֹֽל׃ (ס)
And your cattle and the beasts in your land may eat all its yield.
From here the Talmud learns, that one may freely eat from the 7th year produce, as long as the same type of produce can still be found in the fields for the animals to enjoy.
Once a type of produce can no longer be found in the fields, then one may not eat that type of produce at home, either.
