Our local paper reported that it was colder the first week in July than January. That’s crazy! The unseasonably cool weather did not help the tomatoes out – it hurt them.
I was telling a friend of mine “we are going PAY for the cold weather, watch – it will get BLAZING HOT, so enjoy the sweater weather while you can!” Sure nuff. Temps are going to pop back into the upper 90’s to 100 this week.
The considerably cool July weather has kept the summer flood of produce at bay – for now. Tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, peppers are just trickling in but hopefully not for long. I’ll trade my sweater for a baskets full of produce!
Yep, I rather be buried in produce than bundled up in a sweater or two I suppose. Well, talk to me when I have my head under the faucet, running water all over my face just to cool off, I may (will) change my tune by then.
We continue to receive positive feedback on our collection of FREEDOM SEEDS
“Crookneck and zucchini squash- Summer 2010. Hands-down, these (http://www.freedomseeds.org/) have been THE best seeds I have ever purchased. And, these are leftovers from LAST year’s seeds!” – Homesteader Julia
