Yesterday Californians “fell back” to Pacific Standard Time. Today we fell back further, from the middle of Fall to summer weather. It won’t last. Another cold front is on its way, and as the East Coast prepares to be slammed once more, we anticipate a milder version of seasonal weather. We would send it their way if we could!
The first bell pepper I have managed to grow is now almost two inches long. How much further will it get before the nighttime temperature falls below freezing at the end of the week? It’s hard to say. I’ll hope for the best: at least one edible bell pepper from the dozens of seeds that I planted in the spring.
