We have some sunny days ahead. I need to get to work and get the garden cleaned up and the garlic planted before this weather ends. I got started today but still lots to do.

Nice!  I need to plan on where to put my garlic for this year.  I had my first year last year, love it!  But it gets big!  I didn’t really plan well for that....

Warmer than normal here, gonna rain tomorrow.

I was thinking the very same thing ... where to plant? Is it OK to plant garlic in the same squares as last year?

TD,

I've had better crops--so far--when I plant garlic in the same bed for consecutive years.

In the mid-40's this morning. But will be warming up later this week. Weather guy says we'll be on a roller coaster for several days...

From the look of some of my now wilting veggie plants we must have gone below freezing last night. Going forward the lows for the next few days will be in the 40s and 50s F and the highs in the mid-hi 60s going up to 70F for the coming weekend.

Got down to the upper 40s this morning.  Some of my plants didn't like it.  Picked what will be the last of the eggplant and transplanted kale this morning.

Sunny and mid 50s here today. No frost yet.

That sounds like us. If my summer plants can get through a couple of nights in the mid 40s, they'll be good for at least another 10 days. Fingers crossed. Rolling Eyes

Still hot in Arizona

Post  LizDTM on 10/18/2017, 12:22 am

99 in my backyard today, 93 in the front. Cooling off to the mid-60s overnight. This is the weather I moved here for. Beautiful! Very Happy

Love the cool nights. On all but the hottest days, I can still get up early and get in at least an hour of gardening before running for the couch and the a/c. Rolling Eyes This past summer was brutal, however. Was it unusually bad for you, too?

Hi temp today is going to be in the mid 60s F with 70F coming later in the week.

This may seem ridiculous but I will be taking the Camry in to get winter tires installed this afternoon. I'm doing it earlier than usual because the place where I get it done will store my summer tires for free if I do the switch this week. As well, the snow removal company that I use said they will be coming around starting this weekend to put up their marker stakes on their customers' driveways. Winter is approaching. It will soon be time to start winter gardening using the Aerogarden as well as microgreens.

Suz!

Post  LizDTM on 10/19/2017, 12:46 am

Yes, Suz, this summer was horrifyingly hot. We always have our hottest weather right around the equinox. Then July is cooler (still hot but more like 110 instead of 120) and more humid. But this summer, mid-July we were back up at 120 again for a week. All my plants I babied through the June heat just looked at me and said, "Sorry, we're out." And I thought I was going to die trying to do the afternoon watering. Brutal.

Today it was 98 in the back, 93 in the front. Mid 60s overnight.

Re: How's the Weather Where You're At?

Post  No_Such_Reality on 10/19/2017, 1:05 am

Hot dry and Santa Ana winds.  Seems like we've had them for a month.  Basically, the wind pattern breaks for a couple days and then goes back.  Yesterday my car read 110 sitting in the sun, today a touch cooler. Tomorrow cooler slight ocean breeze, then Saturday back to the Santa Ana winds with projected temps for Monday at 100+

Yippie, 100 degrees and 40+ mph furnace winds with 10% humidity blowing out of the recently burned areas.

Yea, I keep forgetting to mention that, Santa Ana winds are hot, compression of the high pressure system and blowing through the canyons and over the foothills heats the winds hotter than the surrounding air, so it's kind of like standing in 100 degree weather and then pointing a blow dryer at your face on high and max heat.

Santa Ana winds can be brutal and AZ summers are, well, ridiculous. And, here TD is putting on snow tires.

A chance of rain on Friday here. It would be nice to have smoke-free air for a few hours.

I'm from the Midwest originally

Post  LizDTM on 10/19/2017, 11:03 pm

I grew up in Michigan. I would never move back. As must as I sweat in the summer, you don't shovel sunshine, you don't get stuck in sunshine drifts, and you don't have to salt sunshine (causing the bottom of your car to rust out). Yep, I'll stay here.  Very Happy

I LOVE IT! I just stole this perfect comeback for our hot summers comments. (I was born near Buffalo, NY, but moved to Florida before I was old enough for shovel duty. Razz )

Shovel duty

Post  LizDTM on 10/20/2017, 11:37 pm

The last year I was in Michigan was during the depression in '80-'81. My workplace was laying off people right and left. I bought some new clothes, got in my car to go to a New Year's party, and backed into a drifted ditch trying to get out the driveway. Had to shovel myself out, ruined my new clothes, and missed the party. When the union offered unpaid leaves of absence, I took one and moved out here.

Ottawa, Ontario weather continues to be amazing. It's October 21st and I am out working in the garden wearing shorts and a very thin short sleeve shirt. I realize that for some of you that description may paint a very scary image of a crazy old man. Sorry for that but we are getting close to Halloween.

Damp, dreary low 50's

Post  DorothyG on 10/22/2017, 7:52 pm

It was raining when I got up this morning.  Not that we don't need the rain, just wanted to sit outside and enjoy the morning.  The highest temp I saw on my truck was 53 degrees F.  The sun poked out just before it set.  Leaves are changing colors, squirrels are packing nuts, and our two dogs were "fluffing" up their bed.  Forecasts says 43 for tonight.

10 days of perfect summer weather in our forecast. Looks like I'll get another pattypan squash and fingers crossed that all those blossoms open on my tromboncino. I might even get a cherry tomato, too.
