Summer 2015

 

Yes, fall is just around the corner and you still have time to enjoy the perks of summer.  In some places, the heat will continue long into the fall.  Many cities still have concerts in the park and people can still enjoy picnics, sitting  outside on front porches and trips to the coast, beach or river.  Think of what you most like about this season and see if you can possibly enjoy those things that delight you.

Best Gardeners ListenToThe Plants

Listen to the plants.  They will tell you what they need and want.  That is what my friend Norbert says and he has been gardening for years.  He has planted seeds and harvested plants along side master gardeners, watching and learning from them.  With changing weather patterns he may have a point. Recently I have been talking to farmers who sell their produce at local farmers ‘market.  I want to know how they adapt to the changing climate.  How do they adjust to the ups and downs and surprises of global warming?  This is what I hear over and over.  Predictions are difficult.  One the west coast the heat seems to change everything from burning berries on the vines, shortening the avocado season and more, much more.  People who had an easy time growing tomatoes and cumbers last year, have seen their plants disappear because some "bug “had them for lunch or because the heat suddenly ended their life.  

Maybe Norbert is right. He can't be the only one with ears glued to the plants.  There must be others who are listening for a sign, for a word, for a sound, looking for a clue that tells them a little more water please or wait a month before putting me in the soil.
