I saw an article that says this drought now rivals the 1930s... Dust Bowl years. What a horrid growing year this has been.
Over the weekend I began to dig our potato crop. Some of the potato plants had NO potatoes growing beneath them. Now I can comprehend what our ancestors went through in years of famine.
Thanks to our modern methods of food distribution, foods shipped here from all over the world will keep us all alive this winter. However, years ago this drought would have caused such a catastrophic famine that so, so many people would have died.
It's rough going this year...
