Early everything

MaryIdaFarmJune 18, 2012

My first post. Hope another member can keep this forum going. Here in southern Wisconsin we are about 1 month ahead of every year I have been gardening. It is still June and I will have ripe tomatoes and Zuchinni I can harvest by the end of the week. My tomatoes are 48 inches tall with 2-3 inch diameter fruit. The cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen. Anyone else seeing such a crazy spring?

First year gardening so not quite show what's early.
But so far I have a lot stuff growing.

Tomatoes been big a green for weeks now.
Not sure when they will turn red.
There's around 15-20 tomatoes on 4 of my better bush.

Serrano chilli peppers.
anyone know if they stay green or turn red?
And if they do turn red should I pick them before they mature?

Hot banana peppers.
Do these turn colors.
I think I read yellow..then red...then orange.

Bell pepper

Sorry I'm late-I hope to get more involved here too ):
I guess some gardening experts on a regional radio program have said that we are 2 weeks ahead of schedule in everything from plants to insects, and what I'm seeing pretty much corresponds. My %*!#$ japanese beetles were exactly 2 weeks ahead, 1st was June 15 instead of the usual July 1. But, yeah, many plants seem about a month ahead. I'm in Beaver Dam, WI and we had such a bizarre mild winter...and then this drought...I've read that drought can cause the early fall color I'm seeing on some. But I'm wondering if fall will come early? I think I'm ready for it-it's just too darn hot! I guess the warmest June EVER on record here-all this is kinda scary...
