|Mesquite - one of the plants we might find as a major food source|
in the future of global climate change.
No matter what it's called – Global Warming, Global Climate Change or, as I like to call it Global Weirdness – might be already influencing our gardens.
- Why is that our apple trees never went dormant?
- Why do we have really low temperatures (for Los Angeles) followed by a heat wave of unsettling proportions?
Honestly, I don't know if these are the effects of global anything – and in truth, we'll only see it in hindsight anyway. But, this topic is valuable for your garden today whether or not we'll be toasty.
Perennial food plants, giving you harvests year after year without being replanted, are less affected by bad weather or unseasonal storms or weather patterns. Some of our best food comes from these plants and most of them are easier to grow and maintain with only a little training.
