I don't know for sure because we have never really experienced a "real" Spring here in the California Bay Area but if I had to guess this is the closest we have come. It's the end of May and we are still getting a little rain, cool temperatures and a lot of wind. This is just not the norm in these parts. My cool weather crops are loving it but my Summer crops are not doing so well. Had I known the cool weather was going to last so long I would have held off planting Summer crops. My cucumbers are producing fruit but the plants are small and weak. Not sure if they are going to recover. I have been feeding them with seaweed extract and fish emulsion in hopes it will give them a bit of a boost. I also wrapped the bed in plastic today to protect the cucumbers from the wind and to give them a little more warmth.
The tomatoes seem to be doing OK. The Fox Cherries have almost out grown their 5 foot trellis.
I'm getting fruit but they are not going to ripen until the weather warms up a bit more.
I had a nice harvest on May 22nd. 2 pounds of lettuce some carrots, spring onions, snow peas and dill.
Last Christmas sweet husband bought me some new garden art...
As the sun was setting tonight we were blessed with a rainbow.
