It never rains in California...

in the summer-time, or so the song says. This is not true, NOAA says it's going to rain all of next Sunday through Thursday, chilly days. I am glad I haven't cleaned out the wood-stove yet, I may want to make a fire.
By Friday the temp is back in the nineties and the sun's out. My poor tomatoes will not like that weather.

Never say never, even in California. You most likely would not mind the rain, the temperature is another matter. We had the up and down temps for a couple of weeks. Heater on in the early AM and A/C after 2 PM. Hope the tomatoes forgive you.

RE: It never rains in California...

Oh, I hope NOAA is correct. We could use the rain.
I planted my tomato plant in early spring, then came a heat wave and only two tomatoes set. We ate them yesterday and they were delicious.
The plant has a lot of flowers and tomatoes in different stages, but the plant may turn tempremental (pun intented) and shut down.
This may be a two tomato summer.
