Mid-At Aug 2014 - Cooler than normal August?

Post  sfg4uKim on 8/19/2014, 7:44 am

I was listening to the weather when the meteorologist mentioned that this might be the first August in history that Maryland doesn't hit the 90s. Did I hear that right? I only looked at a few Maryland cities but the highest temp I found was 88.

How had this month been for you?

Funny thing the weather, on holiday in Northern Germany around Hamburg they rather high temps of 38 oC plus  for a while .  Berlin was a little cooler but not much for the three weeks we were there .

Meanwhile here in South Wales Uk the weather has been dismal , with lots of wet & wind apparently .


 My tomatoes in the glasshouse have not done too badly but the out door plants have only just started to flower and set .


 The cooler crops such as brassica have done fantastic .....so did the cabbage white butterflies  Sad 
Now , despite me giving all brassicas a spray of bug killer the evening before we travelled they all look like light green net curtains with zillions of cabbage white buttefly catterpillairs all over the place.


 Hee hee   Twisted Evil  I zapped the little devils all over all my sfg beds and flowed beds about an hour ago with 6 litres  Metacarb as a made up at home spray ( can't harvest anything for 96 hours but it's worth the wait) .
 If I resorted to trying to pick the little buggers off the crops I'd need 36 hours in each day and that's without lunch breaks etc. as there are that many .

My hubby was in Germany during the heat wave. It was cooler here in Maryland than there.

Isn't Berlin lovely? I lived there for 3 years (just came back in 2010).

It has been a cool August in NJ which is extremely unusual.
We finally had rain yesterday which we needed (hubby was working outside so was not happy).

Today is a beautiful sunny day with intervals of clouds which I love!

My younger son, wife and grandson live in Washington, DC and it has been extremely hot, hot, hot.

I go back to work tomorrow after having most of the summer off. I work part-time for 10 months of the year. Great gig.

We are going to DC for the coming weekend and hopefully the temps will get a bit cooler.

I live about 20 miles north of dc, and this has been the coolest summer in years. I love it and so has my garden. I sowed my fall garden seeds, and all of them sprouted with just morning waterings. In previous years, i have had to water twice a day and hope for rain to get those August seeds to sprout.

The last day of August. We have not had a 90 degree day here in Maryland the entire month but today that changed. LOL
