Cool Summer, Delayed Garden

It has been so cool this summer here in the PNW that not only have my rhubarb plants started growing a second crop (woah), my strawberries are only now forming but more telling is that my blueberries have not yet had one turn blue – even vaguely blue. I am hoping though, I can see the first ones are starting to get the tiniest hue of blue on the edges. If we can get a couple warm days they may ripen. Thing is if it does warm up I will have what appears to be a bumper crop this summer! The bushes are loaded, even the new plants have put on berries. And with my little berry plantation now to over 15 plants….I want my berries! πŸ˜‰

I suppose that is still better than sitting in 100* temps so I am not complaining! Low 60’s is actually kind of nice…and I am wearing a sweater right!

  1. I am about to get a gigantic crop of overgrown tomatoes! Wish me luck with all that Vitamin C!

    • I had a feeling this year and didn’t even plant one tomato plant :( I so love warm tomatoes right off the vine!
