2023 – Reflections on the New Year

2023 Goals and InspirationsMost of us look at the dawning of a new year with a mixture of relief, hope and at least some cautious optimism. This is indeed true – maybe even EXTRA true – as we say good-bye to a year of more re-building and re-connecting (with families, work teams, communities) than many of us have ever before experienced, and hello to a brand-new year which will undoubtedly see its own share of ups, downs and totally unexpected occurrences.

It’s the perfect time to reflect on what this year may hold for each of us on a personal basis, and how 2023 is likely to affect us as worldwide and state citizens.  

Predictions & Prophesies

  • Farmer’s Almanac. This American periodical, published for over 200 years, has predicted an early 2023 winter season that will be unseasonably cold and snowy with frequent storms and bouts of heavy rain and some snow – especially during the week of January 16! According to the Almanac, any snowfall in our area will occur in mid to late January and in February, and the chillier-than-usual weather will last further into the spring than normal.
  • An Ipsos poll conducted in 35 countries worldwide shows that many of us are feeling quite cautious about the direction our world is going in terms of the economy, climate-related issues, and the threat of nuclear war, or world security. These heavy topics are directly in line with the eerily accurate predictions of famed French doctor and astronomer – and heretic – Nostradamus, whose 500-year-old prophesies have included such world events as the French Revolution, the events of 9/11, and, some even believe, the start of the Coronavirus epidemic in 2020. In his famous 1555 book, “Les Prophéties,” he included prophecies across a wide spectrum of disasters including civil unrest, wars, assassinations, and natural catastrophes.

One of Nostradamus’ more sobering predictions for 2023 includes the devastating effect of global warming on life in our oceans, as referenced in this grim passage: “Like the sun, the head shall sear the shining sea: The Black Sea’s living fish shall all but boil.” Another prediction foretells some sort of “celestial fire on the royal (British) edifice,” which some followers believe to be an actual fire at Buckingham Palace, and other see as attacks on the legitimacy and reputation of the royal family. More predictions include 7 months of war, brought about by “great evil,” which may even lead to World War III. On a positive note…. Well, a booming economy, cloning and the widespread development of artificial organs are all supposedly just around the corner, in 2024!

  • The Year of the Rabbit. In Chinese culture, starting from the day of Chinese New Year (January 22, in 2023), each year is symbolized by a certain animal, and 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit; 2023 will be especially lucky for both men and women born during one of these Years of the Rabbit (1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999 and 2011). Since 2022, a Year of the Tiger, was one characterized by an over-abundance of energy and restlessness, the Year of the Rabbit is destined to be a year of relative serenity. Chinese society sees the Year of the Rabbit as a time of making peace in personal relationships or other life situations, and of making plans for the future.

Travel Trends

Travel tech company Amadeus has come up with a range of predictions for the new year in the world of travel, hospitality and tourism.

  • The metaverse, a term which may be new to some of us, will allow us to experience what a destination is like, digitally, before arriving and explore it again after leaving.
  • Working remotely will evolve for many as “work from anywhere” policies become more commonplace, and business travel will include work teams bonding and growing creativity through trips together.
  • Hotels will offer more amenities, which will mean less baggage for travelers.
  • Biometrics – alternative methods of paying through voice, facial, touch and other unique characteristics – will become more prevalent.
  • Travelers will be more willing to spend greater amounts of money on travel, and those experiences will be more personalized than ever.
  • Finally, the concept of sustainability – tourism without harming the natural environment – is a major theme for 2023.

Science and Technology

According to the BBC, 2023 will be a remarkable year in several areas. Artificial Intelligence (AI) will impact industries like banking, technology, and data processing in the area of automation, meaning possible layoffs in those areas, but allowing companies to meet growth targets and stay on budget, too. Work-life balance and flexibility have grown in importance to employees during the pandemic; “AI” will also allow more employees to work remotely, and part time workers will fill in the gaps where there is a need. Automation performed by software robots on repetitive tasks will increase, including the growth of robotic personal assistants to help out with the most tedious of tasks.

Following the development of antibodies used during the pandemic, vaccines are being developed in the treatment of cystic fibrosis, tuberculosis, certain types of cancer, malaria, and other diseases. Advances in genetic engineering will result in therapies allowing a DNA strand to be altered, which opens up worlds of possibilities including in the fight against blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia. A drug called lecanemab, developed in late 2022 to slow down the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s, may start to be used by patients in early stages of the disease once it is approved by regulators… the first real treatment for Alzheimer’s. Finally, the European Space Agency, or ESA, will launch the Euclid telescope in 2023 to map out the universe, delving even deeper into space observation, and Japan’s Aerospace Exploration Agency will start planning for an exploration of the Milky Way.

What’s Going on in the Tarheel State

Back down to Earth, several interesting laws will go into effect in North Carolina over the next year, including one law – following a period in 2020 during which Governor Roy Cooper repeatedly and independently extended a pandemic-related state of emergency – that will require the governor to obtain formal support for extending a state of emergency past 30 and 60 days. Another new law drops the personal income tax rate from 4.99% to 4.75% in 2023 – a small change, but an improvement, nonetheless!

The southeast extension of the 540 Triangle Expressway – the “Raleigh Outer Loop” – will be completed in 2023 and will finally open to traffic in the spring of 2024. This $2.2bn, 70-mile roadway, designed to reduce congestion on I-440, I-40, NC 42, NC 55, and Ten Ten Road, will link together the towns of Apex, Cary, Clayton, Garner, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, and Raleigh, completely encircling the city by the time it is complete.

NC Christmas Trees 2022 Near Me

NC & Raleigh Christmas TreesNorth Carolina: Christmas Tree Capital!

An astounding 850 growers across each of North Carolina’s 100 counties harvest between 5 and 6 million Christmas trees annually, shipping them to Christmas tree lots and other vendors nationwide to sell over a brief six-week period prior to the holidays. Bringing in an estimated $90 million in revenue annually, the state’s Christmas tree industry is second in size only to Oregon’s and is responsible for supplying more than 20% of the Christmas trees sold throughout the country. 

Queen of the Forest: The Fraser Fir

The jewel in the crown of North Carolina’s Christmas tree industry is the elegant Fraser fir. Popular for its ideal symmetrical shape, magnificent fragrance and firm needles that don’t drop as quickly as those of other species, the Fraser fir is grown primarily for the commercial market, as millions of the tree are shipped throughout the nation. Native to the Appalachian Mountains, the tree grows best in a climate that is cool and moist, but at a slower pace than many other trees; a fully mature tree will take between seven and ten years to reach a height of 6-7 feet. Over 90% of the Christmas trees grown in the state are Fraser fir, making it not only the most abundant tree but also, according to many, the most iconic Christmas tree on the market.

Other trees grown throughout the state include the pretty Leyland cypress, grown primarily along the coast and in the Piedmont region; the Easter white pine with its long, soft, feathery needles and delicate branches; the Arizona cypress, with soft, pale to grayish-green needles and a scent that is more citrusy that other trees; and the dense, aromatic “Green Giant,” with a vibrant green color and pleasing pyramid shape.

History of the Christmas Tree 

Throughout history, various civilizations have used symbols of nature in their homes during ceremonies or as cultural symbols. Romans decorated their environment with evergreen boughs as the winter solstice approached, symbolizing a new growing season to come. Ancient Egyptians also used greens during the winter solstice period, using green palm rushes, which symbolized the triumph of life over death in their celebrations of Ra, the Sun God. German Protestant Christians first brought trees into their houses and decorated them with candles in the 16th century; this was also the period during which the first “Tannenbaum” songs were composed. Emigrants from Germany, it is widely believed, were responsible for bringing the tradition with them to the New World – to America – in the mid-1800s.

The tradition of having a live, decorated tree in the house was not adopted overnight in places like New England, where there was a large Puritan population that considered the practice pagan. During the 19th century, however, the tradition of a holiday tree grew in places like northern Europe and became popular in the U.S. as the number of Germany and Irish immigrants grew and Christmas ornaments from those areas started to be imported. In the early 1900s most tree decorations consisted of homemade ornaments, strings of popcorn, nuts and berries, and other handmade decorations including apples, nuts and cookies. Town squares began featuring their own trees, and soon the Christmas tree became commonplace in many American homes.

The White House Tradition

In 1889, President Benjamin Harrison was the first President to put up a Christmas tree in the White House: a tradition that has continued until today. In 1929, First Lady Lou Henry Hoover was the first to decorate the tree, and starting in 1961, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy chose a theme for the tree – Nutcracker Suite – for the first time ever. In 1966 the delivery of the tree started being a bit more celebratory, with the tree being delivered to the North Portico of the White House on a carriage drawn by jingle bell-wearing horses.

Since 1961, a total of 14 trees from North Carolina have decorated the White House – the greatest number of trees from any one state. The first North Carolina tree to grace the White House’s Blue Room was in 1961, and the most recent in 2021, when Ashe County’s Peak Tree Farm furnished a massive 20-foot Fraser fir … for the third time (2008, 2012)! 

This year, the U.S. Capitol tree is also from North Carolina. A 78-foot red spruce named “Ruby” was harvested in the Pisgah National Forest and will be placed on the Capitol lawn. Following another tradition that started in the early 1960s, the selection of the “People’s Tree” differs from the White House tree in that it is always supplied from a different national forest, by the U.S. Forest Service.

A Total Holiday Experience      

There are a number of Christmas tree farms across North Carolina that offer visitors opportunities to spend an afternoon shopping, enjoying wagon rides, music or special holiday foods, or simply spending time roaming amongst acres of stunning, stately trees. 

  • Topton’s Fir Heaven Sake Christmas Tree Farmoffers cut and live trees as well as scenic sleigh rides with Santa, kids’ activities, and a gift shop full of locally sourced and produced items.
  • The Smoky Mountain Tree Farmin beautiful Waynesville, NC not only sells Fraser Fir trees, garlands and wreaths but operates a newly opened Christmas tree vacation cabin rental in the middle of the farm. 
  • The Jordan Lake Christmas Tree Farm, in Apex, offers hayrides, a bounce house for the kids, gift shop, concessions stand with apple cider, hot chocolate and more, and wreaths and garlands created on-site.
  • Kids will enjoy climbing aboard a bright red caboose or visiting a family of some very photogenic miniature donkeys while their parents sip on a cup of coffee or hot chocolate at Glenville’s Bear Valley Farm. The farm’s Fraser firs, grown in one of the most beautiful spots of the Great Smokey Mountains, will be available until the farm has reached its maximum of 1,800 trees sold for the year, so it’s best to call before you visit.

Oilseed Farming in the U.S.

Oilseed Farming in the U.S.

Natures CropsRapeseed Flowers

A few of the so-called “big ideas” of the past decade or so have included health and nutrition trends – keto/paleo diets, farm-to-table dining, intermittent fasting and “clean” eating, for instance – and climate change, which has become an even hotter topic as we have continued to place more and more needs on our evolving planet. Another area of growing interest is sustainable, regenerative crop production, which is tied into global warming and a variety of environmental, economic and social issues as our planet gets warmer and warmer.

The oilseed industry, based on the cultivation of a number of crops grown for their edible oil (extracted from the seed of a plant rather than the plant itself, however) is one area that is well worth taking a look at from all perspectives.

What is Oilseed?

Oilseed is a seed or a crop grown commercially, mainly for the oil it produces. Oilseed crops such as sunflowers, cottonseed or rapeseed contain an amount of oil – 20% for soybeans, for instance, and over 40% for sunflowers – that make them ideal for oil production. The oils that are extracted are used for both edible and industrial purposes.

How Oilseed Oils Are Used

The most common use for oils extracted from oilseeds are, of course, in cooking and enhancing the taste of foods for both humans and livestock. However, certain oilseeds are also used in renewable fuels, and as ingredients in paints, pharmaceuticals, cleaners, printing inks and plastics. Rapeseed and soybean oils were the first types of seed oil used in the production of biodiesel, and they remain so until today; the process of extracting oil from rapeseed or soybeans – what are known as biodiesel feedstocks – through chemical extraction creates an eco-friendly fuel that is valued for its low impact to the environment.

Cold-Pressed Vs. Refined Oil Extraction

There is more than one process of extracting oil from oilseeds, including the centuries-old process of crushing raw seeds and slowly pressing them under a low temperature (120 degrees Fahrenheit or less) in a machine such as an oilseed press. Cold-pressed oils tend to be rich in oleic acid, vitamin E and antioxidants, as this method is free from the use of chemicals. Cold-pressed oils have a low smoke point, meaning they are more suited to salad dressings and other food items than cooking.

Oilseeds going through a refined process of oil extraction, on the other hand, are crushed, mixed with a liquid solvent, and then heated in a step that dissolves the solvent. Although these oils are virtually free from impurities, they are refined to such a degree that many of the health benefits – vitamins, etc. – are lost. Some refined oils go through another entire process of hydrogenation which gives them a longer shelf life, but the trans-fats that develop during this process can be hazardous to the health.   

Important Oil Seed Crops

In the U.S., the largest oilseed crops are rapeseed, canola, peanuts, soybeans, sunflower and cottonseed; soybeans make up the lion’s share of this production.

  • Soybeans account for about 90% of the nation’s oilseed output. Soybean oil has been shown to boost health in a variety of ways, including lowering blood sugar and blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, improving bone health and improving heart health.
  • Originally harvested as a food crop during the colonial years of the U.S., peanuts (or groundnuts, in some parts of the world) became an important oilseed crop in the early 1900s when it was demonstrated that it might be able to fuel a diesel engine. Some of peanut oil’s more important health benefits include a high degree of unsaturated (good) fats and heart-healthy antioxidants such as vitamin E.
  • Sunflower seed oil has a higher smoking point than vegetable oils, meaning it’s ideal for frying foods, and is an excellent ingredient in various skin care products as an emollient. As it is low in saturated fat and higher in oleic and linoleic acids, it is considered a relatively healthy oil, although it does contain omega-6 fatty acids, which can be harmful.
  • Cottonseed is similar to the sunflower seed in that the seed itself is surrounded by a hard outer hull. The smoke point of the cottonseed is fairly high, which means the oil is perfect for frying, but the oil is also used in some products as a remedy for skin conditions and in a variety of insecticides, cosmetics and detergents.
  • The rapeseed plant, a yellow flowering plant belonging to the Brassica plant family – the same family as Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli and mustard – produces a very pure oil out tiny pods (a tenth of a millimeter in diameter!) containing about 45% oil. Rapeseed oil is often used in industrial applications.
  • Although canola and rapeseed are often thought to be the same, they are not. Canola is a genetically modified version of the rapeseed plant that lacks potentially harmful glucosinolates and erucic acid. Most vegetable oil we use for cooking is canola oil because of its mild, light taste, but it is also used in food products such as crackers and chips and in the production of biodiesel. The solid parts of the seed are often ground into canola meal, which is used in animal feed. Canola is another oil that is full of healthy, monounsaturated fats. It also lowers cholesterol and can be used to relieve inflammation.  

Natures Crops International

One locally based grower of oilseed crops and producer of specialty oils is Natures Crops International, a company dedicated to growing oilseed crops worldwide in the healthiest, most sustainable environments possible. Using a mechanical cold-press method to process those oils, and in small batches that ensure freshness, the company also uses the co-products to increase soil fertility and for other purposes sustainable purposes.

Beyond leaving no negative impact on the environment, the processes used by Natures Crops are regenerative, meaning they focus on the health of the entire ecosystem rather than the crop itself. Water management guidelines are followed, as are certain practices to protect the soil from erosion and any sort of chemical impact and to create habitats for pollinators, earthworms and enriching soil microorganisms.

Find out more about Natures Crops International here, including how the company’s 100% plant-based specialty oils are used in health and beauty products of the highest purity and functionality from the most exceptional crops.

Fall Planting for Spring Growth

Fall Planting for Spring GrowthAutumn is the perfect time of year to prepare your yard for winter hibernation, and to plant almost anything from bulbs to bushes and trees to winter vegetables. Lower humidity and shorter days mean less energy is needed to fend off plant disease and plant-feeding insects, but also, the warm soil, fewer hours of daylight and cooler temperatures of fall are critical in a plant’s growing cycle in that they trigger the plant to develop stronger, deeper roots and to stop creating new stems and leaves.

Autumn Lawn Maintenance

There are dozens of simple-to-apply fall lawn treatment products on the market. Some of these products, when applied in early fall, encourage the growth of grassroots that may have suffered over the hot summer season and kill stubborn weeds like dandelion and clover. Others, used later in the season, are useful for breaking down organic materials like dead leaves and for feeding the grass to store energy in preparation for spring growth.

Other products contain fall seeding grass and are designed to help fill in bare spots or thicken lawns that, once again, may have been damaged over the summer. Fall, in fact, is the best season of the year to apply seed, because the air is cool but soil still warm, which, once again, encourages healthy root growth.

Weeds, too, go through growing cycles, although just a few cold season varieties continue to germinate into the fall. Plants benefit with fewer weeds in their midst since they don’t have to compete for soil nutrients and water. Weed killer applied to a lawn in the fall will travel more directly to the weeds’ roots, killing them effectively underground. A layer of mulch, too – a couple of inches in shady areas, but 3-4 around trees and other plants – is very efficient at discouraging weed growth.  

The Right Time to Plant a Tree or a Shrub

The ideal combination of cooler temperatures, shorter days and warm soil is ideal for planting evergreens or deciduous trees and bushes in the fall, too. Spring-blooming perennial shrubs – those that will grow for more than one season – are also ideally planted in autumn, at least six weeks before the first frost is likely to occur. A newly planted tree or shrub will have an easier time developing strong roots in preparation for winter hibernation with fewer insects, weeds and damaging heat to contend with.

A tree’s roots will continue to strengthen and grow until the temperature of the soil drops below 40F degrees. It is always important to make sure the tree is planted in a location with good drainage, that it receives proper watering and that the soil around the plant is covered with a substantial layer of mulch. The mulch should entirely cover the ground surrounding the tree trunk but not get piled up directly against it in order to prevent a damaging condition called root rot.

Bulbs and Wildflowers

Fall is also the ideal time for planting flower bulbs – daffodils, tulips, crocus, lilies and more – ahead of the cooler winter months. By planting in autumn, strong roots are formed, and the bulbs are able to experience a “cold period” – a necessary part of their growing process – which will ensure they actually flower. Bulbs should be planted in October or November in areas of full sunlight and insulated with a layer of mulch.

Wildflowers, too, which release their seeds in the fall, are able to germinate in time for spring growth as they are spread in the autumn by animals or by the wind. Planting wildflower seeds is most successful in an area that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight where they are not crowded by other plants, are not overly watered and are not covered with too much soil, if any at all. In our warm climate of North Carolina, planting should take place at least 60 days prior to the first frost.

Vegetables

Vegetables that prefer cooler weather for growing – broccoli, kale and romaine lettuce, for instance – are typically planted no later than August, but others such as carrots, radishes, leeks, cauliflower, green peas and all root vegetables do well when planted further into the fall months. Some gardeners protect their winter vegetables against cold snaps by covering them with plastic or insulating blankets, but under typical growing conditions, winter vegetables may easily be grown and cultivated until close to the end of the year.

Herbs such as mint, oregano, sage and thyme that are planted through mid-fall will grow through most of the winter in our region. With full sunlight and well-drained soil – herbs also do well in raised beds – they will come back again year after year.
