    New forecast: 'Mass starvation'

    From the article, "The biggest problem is in sub-Saharan Africa, with some 265 million people who do not get enough food".

    First thing that comes to mind is maybe instead of exporting food and arms to these 3rd world pest holes, they should export BIRTH CONTROL. Lots of it.

    This year we have seen a big chunk of the Kansas spring wheat crop destroyed. Some largish percentage of the Texas panhandle wheat destroyed. Both to a late freeze. Crop damage in Montana and the Dakotas - snow in June. Huge crop damage/destruction in both India and China, rice and wheat, both to floods. Reduced crop output all over the US due to unseasonable rain and lack of sunny days.

    Those big shortages may be THIS year.

        Even my garden is suffering. OH! What garden!!!????? It's been so wet there is NO garden this year. Worse year for wet weather here! I got 3 tomato plants in here at the house. My garden is huge or would have been. It usually feeds my extended family of 16 and then some! Not this year. Couldn't have been worse for me.

              It has been wet here in central Carolina but most crops are all right around me. I'm getting Squash and Cucumbers. Some Green beans but not enough for a good "mess" as of yet. I skipped the corn this year, cheaper to buy it at the farmers' market. It takes a lot of space to grow it and I am not going to plow up the front yard... yet
              I'm going to start planting some more pepper plants and a few other things in the next week or so for a September crop.
