change in the air


Change - small change - in the air last week with a cooler night (50) producing some fog over the bottomlands. The previous weeks had seen a remarkably stable pattern of lows of 55 and highs of 90, plus or minus a few degrees. We missed this year the scattering of very cold nights (with lows close to 40) that we'd seen in previous Augusts.

The last few days have witnessed some relatively high heat, with a couple of 97s and 98s and night-time lows in the mid-60s (and some uncomfortable humidity) but we've now reverted to what seems to be the new norms of 55-88, plus or minus. The plants aren't complaining. We continue to get prodigious amounts of corn and tomatoes while beginning to enjoy lettuce and broccoli from the first wave of plantings for the fall garden.
