Yep, 40 degree swing between highs Tuesday and Wednesday here; from 89 high to a 37 low the very next day.
Most of you down South haven't seen 89 yet; am I right?
Amory Lovins calls this Global Wierding; as gardeners we are likely to notice the effects of weather more than our florally challenged companions. Plants are better attuned to the vagaries of weather than are humans; some of our species seem to particularly immune and opine still that global climate change is more mythology than ecology. Those of use who garden notice the bloom times; those of you journaling will likely notice how things are accelerating significantly... this would correlate with scientific studies, some that show we are two weeks ahead between 1990 and 1999... (it was from my birthyear of 1961 until 1990 for a two week increase before that)...
Gardeners and farmers will be the first to feel the brunt of global wierding, giving us more of a stake in the climate change conversation than most. But as we are the frontline for storing carbon, in control of the finest tool Nature has ever created for moving atmospheric carbon into long term storage, in the roots and living soils of organic culture. We are both the question and the answer, but be sure to both question...and answer. Organics is
