Avocado growers have lost at least $1 million worth of fruit and about 200 acres of orchards to the Gap wildfire in Santa Barbara County, officials said Wednesday. County Agricultural Commissioner William D. Gillette said at least 233 acres of orchards have burned.

Gillette estimated the cost to replace trees, farm equipment, and irrigation lines, plus lost production until new trees bear fruit, will be $9.5 million over the next five to seven years. - Chico Enterprise Record

We already pay $5.00 a gallon for gas here. Looks like that's going to be cheap compared to 'cados in the very near future.

Looks like guacamole is off the menu for a while. Just don't let anything happen to Napa valley and the vineyards.

The price of every one of my soapmaking oils had gone through the roof... *except* avocado and castor. Looks like castor will be the lone holdout now... and of course it's the one I use the least of!
