Agreed. Around here we have very dramatic Blackberry Winters, and of
course is makes us all mad when we plant just a bit too early and watch
helplessly when our beautiful green leaves turn brown. The first thing
we blame is 'Global Warmin'. A few years ago it was 'El Nino', then 'El
Nina', and whatever. On a personal note however the earth has always
been in a state of flux with regard to variability, cooling, then
warming, then cooling again.
Our Blackberry winter wasn't as bad this year as last. Last year even
established trees got wiped out. No peaches at the peach festival, and
no grapes at Grape Fest. It was a sad summer indeed.
