Between the droughts in the Midwest, the rain deluge in other regions, and the heat that has settled over all of us- what will flourish in our much needed abundance? In the fields? In the valleys? In the garden? (Maybe not corn, or soy, or roses -this year).
Is it time we all embrace a different growing zone number? (Zone 5 becomes 6, 7 becomes 8, etc.)
Should we plant for a more Southern Exposure? (I hope not, what will become of all of the apples that need a hard winter, or the Lupines that need to snuggle under a blanket of snow?).
We can ask these questions (and I’m sure some people and Agra-conglomerates are) but the bottom line is that we will all adjust- we have too- we always have.
So what is thriving?
Fear mongers, and politicians, and social networking, and… my Hibiscus.
