How's the weather?
In these parts, it seems we're up for another unusual season... it's really messed my planting schedule up. And it's not doing much for my health either but it frees up my time to spend with the rest of you.
So, how's the weather and how are you dealing with it this season?

Are you a farmer?

Coastal Georgia. We just got through our usual cold snap we always have around Easter. I actually had to turn on the heat a couple mornings last week. The nights are still cool (low 50s) and the days are heating up into the low 80s. We're projected to get into the upper 80s mid next week.
Heading out to the plant nurseries today to look at vegetable plants and bulbs. Can't wait to start digging into the ground.

I’m near Kolkata, in West Bengal, India right now. It’s pretty fuckin’ hot—too hot to eat, even. And dirty in this steel town.
I had some papaya ready for the wandering cows but they didn’t even come by today.
I just sweat, and it’s humid here, so the sweat never evaporates. I may as well be covered in crisco. And when the hot, dusty wind blows, the dust sticks and I’m as good as a greased and floured cake pan.

r2 not in the commercial sense. Aside from our own stock, we have a few acres to supplement a local foodbank and just for kicks, run a bit of an experimental farm project with seedbanks (and sometimes related materials) from around the world. . . which allows for an additional side hustle with offering the occasional class or two, leasing plots and selling starter plants.

If this summer will be like anything last year which was bad IMO then I'm not looking forward to it.
And then there canceling daylight savings too.. Ugh...

22°C today. Finally somewhat warm! Before the shit weather will continue next week. Oh well... just gonna enjoy this lovely weather while it lasts. Was out in the sun for like 6 hours today. Even got a little red. Went for a swim. Water was very cold at 17°C. Still glad I jumped in though, first time this year.

22°C and sunny on this Whitsunday. Not a single cloud in the sky. Almost too hot! Hoping for a slight breeze.

My chayote nearly got assasinated, but it survived. Avocado tree didn’t make it.

Bay Area here, sunny, windy & cold (50s) the last few days. Nights are about 38.
Tuesday we have another atmospheric river coming in, it’ll be the 14th or 15th this season. Usually we only get 1 or 2.
The Sierras have so much snow (285%+ of normal) they’re extending the ski season through July 4th!
And to think this winter was a La Niña, with rain predicted to be less than normal. Next winter is a possible El Niño, with much more rain than normal (possibly).

We had a warm spell in late February - early March just long enough for the trees and flowers to start blooming. Then we had a hard freeze for a week, which killed all of that. So I'm expecting a chintzy spring floral season. Bummer.

Spring is yet to spring here in the inland pacific northwest. Other than crocus and snow drops most plants are still dormant. A few brave forsythia bushes are blooming. But I'm going out this morning to plant blue pansies by my yellow daffodils which are all showing foliage now. I hope they stored enough food last spring to rebloom. I think the blue pansies will look nice next to them, plus will hide the withering foliage until summer annuals are big enough to bloom. I also bought some primroses, iberis, and aubrietas in the store. Even if we get some more cold here, they should survive it. Record cold temps for this time of the year are in the mid-20s which all of these plants can tolerate.

It's nice weather! Fairly warm too! For the first time in many, many months. I'm so happy I want to cry. My seasonal depression is gone. I have been so depressed but I was actually happy today! It's sunny, a few clouds and 16 degrees C. It might not sound like a lot, but it was 6 degrees just a few days ago. 16 degrees is decent in April.

Here in Deploraville, I have my tomatoes planted and green beans just planted yesterday, peppers will wait another couple weeks. I need green onions and probably a few plants of okra for the old man.

It was 81 Friday and Saturday. It's 34 this morning with snow – the ground's too warm for most of it to stick but theres's a smattering on my lawn and flower beds. Just in time for my mulch delivery this morning.

I'm in Atlanta. It's beautiful but seems colder than usual for mid-April. It's going to be in the 40s tonight and next week.
So I am holding off on putting the flowering bushes in pots on the balcony for at least another week.
