MAY 2021 HAS BEEN EXCEPTIONALLY COLD
AS WELL AS WET THROUGHOUT THE UK
BUT MAINLY THE NORTH EAST
LIFE COMES FROM THE SOIL AND DEATH RETURNS TO IT
THOUGH DURHAM COUNCIL WANT THEIR POUND OF FLESH FROM IT FIRST AND LAST
And I have to report that in my Covered Courtyard/Greenhouse the soil temperature did not reach the optimum level of 65 F until 27th May and that was in polystyrene seed boxes, the sort your fish comes in at the processing plant.
Mind you this was in Durham County, a cold windy place, at the best of growing times,
though we get half the rainfall here, than say, Morecambe
The grass hasn’t grown according to the farmers in the Dales and hand feeding sheep with lambs continues
I say this to the doom merchants who claim we are all going to fry to death as a result of climate change
The sort of people who buy their food at supermarkets and have never grown anything except old and senile
And as a great friend who survived WW1 and mentor of mine said “IT’S ALL ACCORDING TO THE WEATHER”
And by that he meant growing food for the table, as much as extremes on a daily basis.
So up here in the frozen North and by frozen
I mean some of the people, parochial poisoned and parched-
-we are 7 days or so behind a normal spring.
What we need is a warm wet June for growers, balmy days to regain our sanity
and wet days to refresh the plants as they grow in the heat.
We grow Flowers Fruit and Vegetables in a garden all for the kitchen
via the freezer except for the early potatoes and beetroot, the cauliflower and cabbage etc..
Home Grown has become too demanding for a lazy nation and gone out of fashion
but just wait for a natural or unnatural disaster and people start to starve.
Of course in this nuclear age things could become very nasty for some
centres of population and those on the fringe
would be well advised to walk toward the epicentre of the blast that try to run away.
Home Grown would have little meaning then as contaminated would become the norm
But then killing is common practice here –
be it Covid by Government Mad Management
or the County Council Community Care and Care homes policies
