Watermelon Woman


Everyone says “odd”

What odd weather we have had this year, this spring, this summer, this fall? Everyone has made a comment about there area of the country being too cool, too hot, too rainy, too dry. The tomatoes are not growing or ripening and on and on.

Are we having an unusual weather pattern this year? Are we seeing climate change in action? I did a Google search on the subject to see what would come up. Boy howdy, there was a lot of talk about the weather this year! Of course, gardeners do tend to obsess about the weather, don’t we?

We didn’t (haven’t?) had the very warm weather usually associated with September. This would be the time that we get extremely hot (100 F) for 3-4 days and we worry about fires. No so much this year. The air is already feeling like Fall.

I have pulled most of the tomatoes and planted some sugar snow peas and scarlett runners. I have a few leaves coming out, but it looks like the gopher/ground hog? has eaten most of the seeds. The prospect of digging out my raised beds, adding screen mesh and we building the bed is frustrating. Sigh
