    I am up later than I should be and have just discovered that a new Ice Age Farmer podcast is being loaded. I didn't see when it will be ready to listen to, but I can't stay up any more and will watch it in the morning.

    It is a longer one, well over half an hour and looks like it will be a good one. Says it's about wildlife and the already apparent lack of forage for this coming winter.

    It was interesting to read that China keeps large food reserves for its people....we used to, but no longer. That is sad.

    Dire Consequences for Wildlife: On The Ground with Tom in Ohio

    Run time is 48:02

    Tom from North Central Ohio, a retired farmer, agronomist, and wildlife observer, joins Christian of Ice Age Farmer for this latest "On the Ground" report to discuss a remarkable lack of forage for wildlife this year (no acorns, light chestnuts and berries), which likely presages one of the longest, hungriest winters in decades. We explore how the effects of natural cycles such as the Grand Solar Minimum can be unpredictable -- ever heard of the billion squirrel migration? -- and how we need to prepare now.

    Here's an ominous article (pic and a few links at the site):

    Serious U.S., Canadian Spring-Wheat Harvest Concerns Following Cold and Wet Conditions

    September 21, 2019 Cap Allon

    Wheat futures were on the march north this week…

    A record-cold Q1/2 and excessively wet conditions ever-since have decimated the quality of spring and durum wheat crops in the northern U.S. Plains and Canadian Prairies, reports Reuters.

    Historic cold earlier in the year led to a very late planting season, and while that’s causing its own yield and quality concerns, it’s the persistent rains and waterlogging which are giving farmers the biggest headaches of late.

    The wet conditions are severely hampering harvest efforts, and have even caused some mature, un-harvested wheat kernels to begin to sprout, severely damaging the quality.

    Farmers in North Dakota, by far the largest U.S. spring wheat producer, were 73% harvested by Sept 15. Crops still standing due to the weather delays –some 86 million bushels– will likely have the poorest quality.

    “It’s really bad news,” said Joel Ransom, an agronomist with North Dakota State University in Fargo.

    While just north of the border, in Canada, the wheat harvest is even-less advanced.

    Farmers had gathered just 13% of Saskatchewan’s spring wheat crop as of Monday, Sept 16. Harvest progress for all crops in the province totaled a paltry 23%, which is less than half the five-year average pace of 50%.

    The top grades of U.S. and Canadian spring and durum wheat “just are not going to be available in the same volumes,” said Chuck Penner, analyst at Winnipeg-based LeftField Commodity Research.

    And Jonathan Lane, head of ADM Agriculture’s grain trading, added that “weather concerns are still apparent in the southern hemisphere,” too.

    Wheat futures were on the march north this week, and as the harvest data continues rolling in, and the numbers continue falling short of what are very unrealistic market expectations, we should look for commodity prices to skyrocket in the coming months.

    Stay tuned for updates.

    Grow your own.

    For those who haven't been to the twitter site #noharvest19, it would be a good idea to go and read the posts. Don't forget to hit the 'latest' tab.

    There are also some good updates at the original site, #NoPlant19 (skim past any nonsense, of course - someone going by GoodBadUgly4 has posted a lot of political 'stuff'):

    Just finished the Ice Age Farmer interview. Not earth-shattering, but interesting for sure, and some of the information could be important, for instance, the lack of birds and insects.

    Spain – Leafy vegetable shortages a sure thing in the winter

    September 21, 2019 by Robert

    Entire villages and fields flooded.

    In Murcia and Alicante whole villages have been flooded by the extreme amount of rainfall. More than 400mm (15.8 inches) fell locally in the past two days.”

    “On Friday afternoon, it seemed the rain was over. But, on Saturday morning at about 05:00, there was a huge thunderstorm. There were hailstones the size of golfballs and bigger,” says Thomasol’s Thomas Bos. This storm caused significant damage in Puerto Lumbreras, in Murcia, and Pulpí. “A lot of the first crops of broccoli, iceberg lettuce, and other lettuce varieties have been lost.”

    The damage will be “unbelievably large,” said a resident. “One grower says 90%, if not 100%, of his crops for the December harvest are lost.

    There's a new MIAC podcast up on Adapt 2030 youtube now. It's #232 and runs 14 minutes.

    It's about using the US/China trade war to explain away high food prices.
