California is experiencing the worst drought in history. They supply America with more vegetables than any other state. 11 States have been declared disaster areas because of the dry conditions. This should sound an alarm to pray and prepare. Pray for families who will be out of work, family businesses that will close, ones who can’t afford escalating costs of food…and prepare by planting gardens.
We can grow our own gardens to help offset soaring prices of food for our families and those we know in need. I planted seeds indoors this past weekend for a spring garden. I’ll plant my summer seeds indoors in a couple of weeks. Just tonight we ate Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai. The squash was as fresh as when we picked it out of our garden seven months ago. It’s rewarding to grow your own produce and enjoy it all year. Even though this has been a harsh winter my kale is still growing- amazing. It is being said by public officials that this drought could have cataclysmic impact on food prices.
The California Farm Water Coalition said that the hardest hit crops will be tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, cantaloupes, garlic, peppers and corn. Many other foods will be affected but these are at the top. Purchase some organic tomato seeds now and plant in the next week indoors. Plant transplants after danger of frost (when will that be this year?).
