We still don’t know what form of arthritis it is that my mother has The first diagnosis was rheumatoid (her joints swell up), but then other symptoms made her doctors suspect lupus. Then she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and then psoriatic arthritis. But she’s had bouts with pancreatitis and trouble with her liver. And in 2008 she had a perforated bowel. Now her doctors want to again say she has lupus.
Fibro often takes a specialist to definitively diagnose. Lupus is something I'm unfamiliar with but it may explain the odd mix of symptoms.

I have noticed lately that my knees start aching a day or two before a cold front is forecast, so I am affected by changes in barometric pressure.
In time you barely notice it. I have to try to notice it again because it's a flag warning my allergies are about to hit me.

It turned clear and warm by Valentine’s Day and it hit 85 by the end of February. We tied a record of 90 on April 1 and broke a record at 91 a week later. Since then we’ve had about 5 days at or over 90. Today we got the first rainfall since March 31.
As I mentioned the real chill ended Jan. 10th this year & last. I think we brushed 70 degrees twice since than but days are just warm shirt/light jacket weather. Days are often a mix of very light rain and sun. In Oregon I leaned the word "sun break" for the first time. Rain punctuated by the occasional sun break.

I’m like that. I’ve already had to give up most of my book reading because I cannot hold a book for very long. But I’d go crazy without my garden.
I do most of my reading on the computer (Gutenberg) or on my Kindle (very light).

My mother’s father had rheumatoid arthritis and her mother had osteo. My mother’s first symptoms started when she was about 40. She realized that she ached anytime she used power tools because of the vibration. My symptoms started before I was 30 and I have the same problem with the lawnmower- 2 hours mowing grass followed by aching for a week.

I never dreamed Oregon could be this way. Our first freeze in an average year comes during the last week in November and our last freeze comes in the end of February. But then we’ve also had freezing nights as late as mid-April and as early as the first week in November.

Our first 90 degree day is usually in the last week in April. We can have 90 in October, but we can also have a noreaster and 40 degrees in October.

We usually have around 30 freezing nights per winter. It turned cold just after Thanksgiving last year and we had our 30 freezes by the end of January. It turned clear and warm by Valentine’s Day and it hit 85 by the end of February. We tied a record of 90 on April 1 and broke a record at 91 a week later. Since then we’ve had about 5 days at or over 90. Today we got the first rainfall since March 31.

But what kind of production and land costs do you have?

There I haven't a clue. I suspect our Realtors and land owners might know where to look to find out.
