Just wanted to show you what the weather conditions are like on average in my area:
Usually we have a wet and windy fall and most of the snow falls in January and February. There’s not that much heat around here, so growing oranges are out of the question and melons are difficult. But we’re not too far north to justify transporting our food from far away on trucks. This is not the north pole. If it was that hard to grow our own food maybe we should consider moving further down south. Who said we should live up here anyway… The oil companies?
