Allergies and oak pollenGatoraceae's Ramblings | Gatoraceae's Ramblings
If you have seasonal allergies to oak pollen, I would suggest you avoid central California, my yard or stay inside. I know this happens every spring but the coating of pollen seems extra thick this year. Just a mere week or so ago we had rain and freezing temperatures. Then the temperature shot up to the 80's the last few days and in the photos below you can see what coats my backyard bricks, tables and chairs. What's even scarier is I cleaned the yard yesterday and wiped the tables down. My pet hens are very happy to gobble up the pollen which is highly nutritious and will help color their yolks an even deeper orange.
