What jumps out at me from this piece (drought in the USA. previous post) is that 75% of supermarket food products contain corn!!!! The supermarkets that everyone claims to offer so much choice. It’s all the SAME junk food in different shapes and sizes, with different names in different packets. We don’t need corn. We don’t need supermarkets.
Nearly everyone I know is having failures of apples this year. A beekeeper friend says it is to do with the bees not pollinating because of the particular conditions this year.
However one apple tree I know is doing ok, and it maybe that certain varieties will be fine. Diversity is the way forward, because you don’t have all your eggs in one basket. If you have several different varieties, or crops, if one fails, something else will succeed.
My raspberries have finally ripened, and black currants and raspberries and rhubarb all very good this year.
