Climate Change

Today is my favorite day of the year! It's the official end of the irrigation season! What?!? What did you think I was going to say? Oh yeah. That. So I might walk around the office as a raccoon as well. Bonus!

We've been having some unseasonably warm weather as of late. It looks like after today we will have experienced the 2nd warmest October on record. If this were June I would have been complaining. Oh wait. June WAS one of the warmest on record as well. It's just that when you have the warmest October, you have some pretty damn nice weather! I'm even getting Kitty to join me on the patio before sunset to partake in the gorgeous conditions. The other day she commented that the tomatoes were still blooming. I quickly glanced over and noticed a few yellow flowers. "Oh, yeah." It wasn't until the next day that I looked over and really saw what she was talking about. There was a cherry tomato plant that was completely covered in flowers! It looked like June or July! I may have to cover it up at the first frost (which maybe in December the way things are going). Maybe I'll have fresh tomatoes in January.

BTW, I decided to do a concerted effort to harvest all of the tomatoes that were ripe on my plants. I collected 30-40 without even trying. This is in addition to all of the cherry/plum tomatoes I have picked and brought to various furmeets as well as to the office breakroom. I also have hot peppers coming out of my ears. (Ow!) Salsa time!
