Incredible Summer in The PNW
What an incredible summer. I love it.
Are you having one too ?
As you can see in my profile , the Heat Zone where I am gardening is the lonely number "1". What that means is that statistically there will be 0, 1 or 2(at the most) summer days when the high temperatures will reach or exceed 86F (30 C).
Surprise ! During this month of July we have had over 10 days with highs reaching 86F and higher. And as you can see in the image below , more is to come in August. On top of this we are not getting much rain either . That is very unusual here, in this neck of the woods, in Western Washington.
This is great for tomatoes, peppers and all the heat loving garden plants. I regret that I did not plant Okra.
The amazing thing is that with all these heat waves, our night lows remain in 50s.Incredible !
THAT'S INCREDIBLE !
