Is it simply the weather? I have never seen such long armed squashes and tomatoes. One walks next to them and is ripped in impossible situations and I can only be grateful not to be tripping and falling with every step toward looking for fruit. Still the tomatoes will not ripen, and only now th squash is beginning to produce in a really exaggerated style. I have to ask why republicans have no interest in global warming.
This Rick Parry–how can he say that the changes in our weather patterns are just a figment of our imagination that are encouraged by the liberal media. Sometimes I think he doesn’t like facts. Facts are always sticking a hole through a perfectly good idea that holds up nicely as long as you don’t start looking for some silly mistake in thinking. Republicans would probably call it nit-picking.
Meanwhile maybe there’s too much nitrogen in the soil. Who knows? Maybe it’s this, and maybe it’s that. Just don’t go around saying fossil energy has anything to do with it, because that makes people (republicans) nervous. Someone might suggest that the billions of dollars spent on cutting off coal mountain tops, on hydrofracking natural as stuck in deep cracks in the ground, on oil hiding under the melting tundra, that those billions could be spent on developing energy that depends on wind or sun. I’m thinking those squashes and tomatoes of mine might just be playing the part of the canary in the coal mine.
