Garden reclamation and transplanting have come to a skidding halt here. Incredible temperatures of high 80's have dominated the weekend. No rain in nearly two weeks. Insanity for these parts.
Long range forecasts show a possible rain shower in six more days. Fire season has started early. Our famous 'East Winds' out of the Columbia River Gorge have had gusts in the Willamette Valley of over 40mph. It has been brutal on baby plants.
Usually, we have some mild days in May. Like, in the mid-60 degree range. May is typically a wet, spring month where cool weather crops shine and shade plants thrive. Not so much this year.
I have put much of my transplanting plans on hold and I have been watering all the plants in pots nightly. (I have quite the collection here.)
I am enjoying this rare, early May vitamin D, but it's messed with my gardening plans, man!
Any spring weather anomalies in your neck of the woods?
