This is January. In southern New Hampshire. Am I the only one that's nervous that this is all the snow we've got left? This is the backyard at our house, where the garden sits. It has been the warmest winter here I can remember in the 34 years I've been a New Englander. It has its upside...like lower heating bills and not having to deal with our hella driveway every day. But on another hand, New Hampshire is ski country. You can imagine what that means for our tourist dollar that our state relies heavily on for income.
I know, I know there are those that still think global warming is a fallacy. I am not one of them. I'm wondering what all this will mean for our apples and maple syrup. Both types of trees need extended cold to put them in a true dormant state so they can produce our food. Our FOOD.
I'm feeling this is truly something we should be fretting about. A lot.
