crazy weather

Category: general garden | Posted: Mon Aug 11, 2008 11:58 am

well the weather has been crazy for july and august so far we had a few days of hot weather then it went back to being rainy and cool we have had a lot of wind and my tomato plants poor things have been battered but they seem to be holding their own we have plentiful fruits just nothing showing a hint of ripening which is a shame i am getting impatient !! the strangest thing was we put some hyacinth bulbs outside we got as a gift in january and flowered inside when they were done lazily the pot was left outside to be dealt with my husband was pottering in the garden yesterday and found them and they have shooted and are well on their way the shoots ae about n inch and a half above the soil level poor things obviously think it is spring we have brought them inside and will keep an eye on them even the most neglected things seem to want to grow !! we also have a sunflower that my husband planted into the ground and it has not 1 not 5 but 10 flower heads forming on it i will have to get pictures and post them on here but it has been raining and windy so as yet havent got any shots of it i hope everyone elses garden is a little more normal and i am now concerned about this pot of potatoes we are growing that they will rot with all the rain

Sounds like you've got a normal summer from coastal mid-Norway there. *lol* Looking forward to seeing your sunflower.

O, sympathies with the weather! We are having all that rain here, too and day-in, day-out it does make you wonder what's with the weather!
