Re: weather

virtually non stop rain here for the past 2 days. It is pouring now. Flash flood warnings. More rain predicted the next few days. I hope it lets up before Friday. I have to set up both the MG and my own plant sales for Saturday.

It is odd weather this year, Auralie, though I'm sure it's not entirely the fault of global warming. Our temperatures seem about right--high 70s at night, low 90s during the day with heat indexes around 105. It's the lack of any significant rain that seems atypical. 5 minute thunder showers don't quite do it. It's time for us to plant our fall-winter gardens--tomatoes, peppers, collards, eggplants, beets, carrots--but without the rain, I'm reluctant to do it, although I will start tomato and pepper seeds for transplanting in the irrigated lathhouse, probably tomorrow.

Weird weather all over.  Drought and heat in some areas, too much rain in
others. I shouldn't complain - we have had very little real heat this summer
only a few days over 90 degrees, and though it has been pretty dry, we have had just enough rain to keep things alive. Hovever, what we are having today is depressing. Does overcast skies - no rain, just overcast - with 65 degrees
at nearly noon sound like a typical middle-of-August dog days day?  We
have had cool nights - low 50s for a week now, and daytime temps in the
low 70s most days.  Things in my vegetable garden are just not growing.
The latest crop of beans have lots of little ones, but just aren't getting
The Kentucky Wonders on the fence that are usually my most reliable
mid-to-late season beans aren't even blooming, though they have reached
the top of the 8-foot fence.  Tomatoes are not settting fruit - too cool
nights, I guess.  Anyway, all this seems very strange, but my son
assures me that it's all due to global warming.
