This is the perfect time here in the Central Valley. The constant rain has stopped and we are all planting like mad. I hope the fruit crop wasn't destroyed because I'm down to my last jar of jam and need to make some soon. The temperature is in the mid-80's. In another month, we'll experience triple digit numbers, as high as 113 degrees. That can be hard on plants that don't like to bake, for instance, yellow roses. They don't last very long in the high heat, fading quickly. So, I am taking the time to enjoy these beauties right now.
All in all, it's a very good time. My fava beans are producing like crazy and the tomato plants have little fruits on them. I'll plant basil, green and wax beans, eggplant and peppers this week. And I'll try to remember this lovely time before the beastly heat arrives.
It will hit the 90's this weekend. That's how it starts.
