After our flood earlier this month, some of the vegetation thinks we were washed into the Southern Hemisphere. Stuff that should be happening in spring is happening now:
Here’s a lime tree with new growth, buds, and flowers. This usually happens in the spring in late February and March. At this time of year, the new growth won’t be able to stand very much chill and there isn’t enough growing season for the fruit.
It’s not just the limes, but the lemons also
You may think it’s because citrus isn’t native to the area and aren’t used to weirdness in the weather, but the mesquite trees are local and they’re showing flowers that usually come in March
I’m worried. I hope it doesn’t affect MY food supply.
