Well after fog and rain and a lot of work, it’s officially summer I guess.
Arg my chard. Chard can grow well in the summer months but it’s really more of a fall veggie here, but I just had to have it and look what I’ve got. I managed to save it with just a ton of water- but still what a mess.
My one glorious pumpkin was also feeling the heat, as it’s leaves looked quite parched. The pumpkin itself looks marvelous though, it seems to be ripening nicely.
My lettuce also was going the way of the chard. It’s very close to the house and gets plenty of cover, but the heat and the morning sun was extremely hot. So more water in the fabric bed as well.
In good heat related news, my peppers are happy campers. They’ve been waiting for this heat, and it should mean that the peppers on the plant will ripen nicely.
Got to look on the bright side I guess.
The extraordinarily bright side of the evil hate star.
I can’t believe I’m saying this- I miss the fog!

I can’t believe you said that either.
I am reading this on Monday evening, so I suspect it is foggy there now.
It is in fact foggy and cold today so I got my wish I suppose! Of course the heat will return soon…
Yes, there will be a bit of warmth, but really, it is getting late in August. I think of September as being the best time of year in Montara, because it was the sunniest. However, by that time, it did not get as warm as it does in Los Gatos. I really don’t know how similar that is to San Francisco, especially since San Francisco alone has more climates zones than some states do.
