Hello! Good Morning, I hope everyone had a great Holiday of your choice!
My thread is a personal one that I feel may not be so personal, since I have heard family member reports and read other blogs that people are seeing
the same thing.
I have a crab apple tree that is 8 years old. Every spring it blooms the most beautiful hot pink blossoms. Come fall/winter time, I get to harvest the
edible crab apples. Last year I had so many I didn't know what to do with them all.
This year in October, I came home from work one day and noticed that the tree had RE-BLOOMED! Never has it done that before! I honestly didn't think
too much about it other than thinking it was a little odd.
So now Christmas has passed and I realized I am missing something, something so important that it always coincides with my holiday
planning........APPLE HARVEST!!!! THERE ARE NONE!!!! NOT ONE!!!!!
No apple jelly, no apple butter, nothing to string for the holiday tree, nothin'! I brought this up to a family member in California who states she
is also seeing some trees re-blooming in her neighborhood.
This brought me back to remember an odd fact this summer. My blue birds return year after year every April to lay their eggs. This year they were
laying their eggs in July, and they all died I assumed from the heat...but what if everything is getting confused and the food they rely upon to eat
had already come and gone?? The cycle of life disrupted!
So if humans rely upon trees for example to eat from, what happens when nature is confused and does not produce the fruit WE RELY ON!!!?? Massive
starvation on a global scale?? The changes are on us, we could be doomed, especially if foods we rely upon require pollination, first freezes, or no
People may not believe in Global Climate Change but wake up people, there ARE changes, call it what you like, but a duck is still a duck and an apple
still an apple, weather change is...well......WEATHER CHANGE! How can anyone prepare for that?
