Just set a record for the coldest June 22nd in Seattle. It never got over 55F! My garden is screaming, this is not summer!
That's what we had for several weeks after I planted.
The weather we are having now , I can hear the plants growing
19 hours of sun & in the 70s, man what a difference in just 4 days
After the bitter cold winter you folks had, I can't begrudge sharing the warmth. But send some down here please.
Take some of mine, BG. Wed forecast is for 92 and Thur. is for 97 - yuck.
100 Thur / 99 Fri.
I'd ship some heat over to the PNW if I knew how.
Must be working, we are at 62F, woohoo! (not)
Great thread here. Looks real good guys. I have 31 tom. plants in but nothing ripe yet. Lots of small green ones and my peppers are starting to come on. Lots of flowers on the zuchinni. I planted Memorial day weekend and we have had to water a lot as it has been dry. You can sure see the difference in growth time between rain water and well water. Rain water is just so much better.
I have always said "rain makes it grow, sprinklers keep it alive".
Please don't tell my plants that. They don't know what rain is.
It hasn't rained a drop here in over a month. Hose water is treating my garden pretty not bad.
Mine are doing fine I just can see a difference in growth when we do have rain vs well water. I would have to guess every area is different as I know well waters can definatly be different just in a short distance. Not sure how different the water is but my neighbor just up the street about a city block drilled a new well and then I drilled about a year later with the same driller and he said it was a world of difference. He drilled my neighbors very easily and mine he had to go through 60 feet of sand stone.
It also helps that we don't have well water, but spring water instead. Our water is a lot different than the neighbors who have well water. The cucumbers love the stuff.
