Crummy weather continues... How about you?
We had a late spring, colder than normal summer, severe drought for most of the spring/summer. September was pretty beautiful, other than the last few days of clouds and cold rain, which stretched into early October. Normally we have the first light frost October 15, instead we had a killing freeze October 8, followed by snow three of the last four days, and temperatures 20+ degrees BELOW NORMAL. My gardens are full of black, mushy leaves, broken stems, rotten vegetables... even my broccoli looks down for the count.
I usually love fall. Unfortunately, the rain, cold, snow, have all caused most of the leaves to fall off the trees without changing color. Even if the weather warms, it won't be a pretty autumn.
So what am I mourning most? The seeds I wanted to harvest that the killing frost took out prematurely. I was THIS close to harvesting kirengeshoma koreana, THIS close to harvesting golden leaved tricyrtis seeds, THIS close to harvesting lisianthus, THIS close...
So how was your growing season?
