It sickening to see the constant propaganda against farming in the central valley of California. The state is the most fertile in the whole nation!
What should humans do, truck the topsoil to the rainforests where they get 70 inches of rain a year? As a gardener you of course know that you need soil water and weather for food crop production. Plenty of water falls on the central valley, but lots of rivers take it away. What on earth is wrong with storing it for later? Or do you prefer they just canal it down to Los Angeles to water the illegals?
I wonder if you have a well, a water tank or a municipal water system to water your garden. I wonder if you only grow native plants in your garden. What native texas food to you grow? Oh, and those chickens of yours don’t belong the the texas hill country either. Some farmer bred them, they ain’t native.
I plainly stated that growing crops more suitable for the area would alleviate the issue of water shortages.
