It is currently 82 degrees at 0945 central daylight time and there is light rain. The wind is south southeast at about 5 knots down here among the trees. I don't think I'll be riding my bicycle today.
This Avocado that I sprouted from a California Hass avocado I ate about a year and a half ago is growing like stink despite the freeze last winter and numerous wind events. The wind last night kind of bent it over but I'll fix that after a while.
The problem is not with freezing I can protect from that. The problem will be the shorter cooler days. These plant are hard wired to do what they do without a thermometer or clock.
Everything is in the shade right now and will remain so until I'm sure we are not going to get more blasting heat. Then they will go out into full sun.
Their vegetables are sometimes local and sometimes not. For instance today's potatoes are from Minnesota, onions are from New Mexico and tomatoes are from Alabama. The eggs are from this farm's backyard.
Today he was selling Okra and it is the sweetest okra I have ever had. He said I can call him anytime to see what he has. At the end of November he will have green beans. I suspect we will be doing further business.
Now I'm going to fry up some of that okra for lunch.
