The weather is again wreaking havoc with our garden chores. Torrential rains, cold days, beautiful warm sunny days, it feels like we are playing a game of dodge ball. Though the garden is still a bit wet, we had to get a few things in the ground or not plant them at all this year.
Today snow peas, carrots, radishes, beets and lettuce were planted.
I had someone tell me that she had heard some scientists talking about the climate change and how we had reached some sort of peak. They were predicting more strange and unsettled weather like we have had the last two years and that because of that we would see more widespread crop failures and extreme price increases in produce and meats. All the more reason to homestead, but in it we will have to learn to make peace with Mother Nature.
