A Countryman’s Long Range Forecast and Logic

This year the trees are full to bursting with fruits and berries. More acorns, beech mast, rowan, elder and hawthorn than I have sen for at least 40 years.

This could mean that after the two previous severe winters, the trees are producing more fruit to further themselves, in expectation of a mild winter this year.

Or… Mother nature is stocking the larder for all the little critters in case of another hard winter.

Personally I think that we’re in a cycle of cold winters. This happens about every 40 years.  I will update again in early spring!

Get planting!  Best wishes, Len.
