    We had apricot trees on our farm… I bought some at the shop the other day. Sour little things. Not nice at all.

    It rained a LOT in Spain and then it snowed. So crops are messed up and exports are way down and prices of the things that did get exported at way up. 150% to 300% up… Some vegetables like lettuce in Britain are about 6x the normal price at the moment they say.

    When I was a kid Daddy grew strawberries. They were not huge but soooo delicious. Tasted nothing like the ones we eat today. I would love to grow some heirloom type strawberries.

    I absolutely agree with you. We have definitely seen the wrath of mother nature many times before and the damage that it leaves behind, devastating.
