We're back to sweater weather, after a refreshing rain and cold front blew the heat and humidity away. We had been going through 30°C and up, with humidity bringing the temps up to 40°C +. Crazy hot for this part of the world. Now we're back down to high teens and low twenties in the forecast, with a low of 5°C overnight for the week. I admit the humidity was getting to me, but this extreme flip seems a little uncalled for as well.
Inside greenhouse #2, the cukes are coming along nicely, a nasturdium is flowering, and the kale survives. There are a few baby cabbage left that the calves missed, but that's about it.
Greenhouse #1 has the opposite effect- only one cucumber, although it does have a sunflower nearly 5' tall. The tomatoes and peppers are all flowering, and there are lots of little carrots, onions, and radishes interspersed amongst them.
The first green tomatoes are even making an appearance! Funny little side note- I left the 'dead' (never germinated) tomato pots sitting on the plant stand in the house, and for some odd reason, three recently sprouted. What am I supposed to do with three 3" tomato sprouts in Canada near the end of July? lol
Fence repairs were done, but now need more work. One of our posts was a bit too thin, I guess, as they bowled it over last night and made another escape. At least they were kind enough to tell me now, rather than waiting until the middle of winter.
Blueberries are not looking as good as I had hoped they would be this year. It's early yet, but there just don't seem to be a lot of plants with green berries now. I think they may have dropped their berries in June, having so little rain at that time. I'll still get enough for at least one batch of wine, it'll just take a bit longer picking than I had hoped. The plants that do have berries are big and juicy, which helps a lot, just a lot more walking this year to find them.
