Diary 6/30


Challenging year this one. It is 41 degrees out there right now. Not exactly fruit setting temperature. It will take all day for things to warm up. Will be cool until Saturday. Supposedly hot next week, but I think they are even leary about that. I will pull the shade cloth back off the greenhouse because we need every bit of sun and heat, but it did well not shocking baby plants when it turned hot last weekend. I have weird looking cucumbers with small necks then bigger bodies. I think they don't like all the variety of temperatures. Usually I am thinking of cobbler or pie for 4th of July with the boysenberries. It is often approaching 100 also, and we have barely hit 90. Oh El Nino, if you are going to stick around, I will have to think this whole thing through differently!
