My target for adapting to climate warming is to grow crops/trees that thrive 300 miles further south at the same elevation, or nearby but at 300 feet lower elevation. What that means in real life, is that I am expecting peaches and walnuts to thrive for me, because they are currently doing really well in the next valley over at 300 feet lower in elevation. But have been marginal species in Cache Valley. Last fall, I planted around 100 pecan seeds, because I expect them to become a viable species in my climate. And I expect Joshua trees to become viable at my place!!!
