Enough wind

colokid(5)June 16, 2011

Wind is 21 out of the East. Seems like every day the same on my poor tomato plats. I took the buckets of last week. though it was time for them to make it on their own. Could have been a big mistake. My "one every year" stupice is standing like a trooper and flowers. Still it will be at least 6 weeks before any to eat. The rest are raged looking. Makes garden in Colorado lots of fun. I have some in pots in the green house that "might" bare/bear/beer fruit.

My larger veggie garden looks like 99.9% dirt, Kenny. There are wisps of green. The warm-season plants are out there - most at odd, wind-tortured angles.

We had a 40mph gust yesterday and 1/3rd inch of rain fell in the afternoon but, much of that must have been hail. Today, it had only reached 50F by 2pm but, I guess the thermometer made it to 54F later.

I'm a little tired of Junuary . . .

The Weather Service is predicting a slow warming trend. I have lots of greens and the potatoes look good, in the better-protected little veggie garden.

Yeah, I hear ya. I have my toms and peppers in pots huddled against the house. They get less sun there but at least the wind will be less likely to snap them in half.

My last WOW around the habanero got blown off today. We were at a function this evening and the wind was simply pounding everyone attending. I strung tree tie today to keep the onion tops from being snapped at the bulb, thereby stopping bulb production. Did a bike ride just as the wind came up, and a swarm of bees was struggling against the rising gusts in an interesting way. Anyway, seems pretty windy this year.

Nice to know that I am not alone. For some reason even the weeds are not growing.
