Uh, oh. My 2-1/2 year old grandson is currently enrolled in potty training and the reward for success is a marshmallow. This could get ugly.

Now that is funny right there.


Even funnier, I'll bet we can find a politician that will add funding to the farm bill to cover this catastrophe.

I wonder if the jelly bean crop will be affected in a similar fashion?
I don't think they can grow jelly beans in North Carolina. They usually grow them in similar climates as grapes. But the big vineyards HATE them and will try and ruin the crop.

I just hope that the trees on my money tree farm begin to bud and can be harvested this year. As you know, prevailing winds can become a problem for money trees. It seems to blow the money off the trees and start to line the pockets of corrupt politicians, lawyers, doctors, and of course, the IRS.

So, just to be clear, it's not my soil :dunno: that's what the SOB next door tells me every year, but his grapes seem to do just fine. :banghead::lol:

I had a heck of a time with my marshmallow trees last year. Every time they were ready to pick the neighborhood kids would have a big bonfire. Next day, no marshmallows. I fixed them this year, less water and no fertilizer. Now we have mini marshmallows

We don't have any trees of our own, but our neighbors have plenty. So they let us come down and pick what we want. The minis are too hard to pick for me. :nunu:
The hybrids are the best, but I don't have any pictures and the harvest is just got over here. :banghead:

I'll try and remember to do that next year. :good2:

Due to a poor marshmallow crop this year.

Ridiculous! They don't have to take a total loss; my Grandfather raised marshmallows for 40 years. When he had a year like that, he was always able to recoup his losses. His orchard was fenced; he would simply buy a couple hundred young pigs and turn them into the orchard. They would clean up the marshmallows, gain a lot of weight and he would make a profit! They also cleaned up the weeds and grass between the trees, aerated the soil and left a modicum of fertilizer to enhance next year's crop.

He also used that method the year his wheat field burned just at harvest time.
