How hot is it with global warming
« on: August 17, 2018, 10:18:16 AM »
I've seen a lot of things for the first time here in Southern Louisiana.  I've always noticed certain times of the year that my tomatoes would get sunburns if the leafs didn't   cover them.  And for the first time I seen some of my figs get sunburned spots on them. And for the first time this year we didn't have any spring rains we were in a drought and the ground Really Got hard.  So with the summer rains coming in off the Gulf  with excesses of an inch to 3 in I walked out and seen my oranges split open sucking all the moisture out of ground they can get and with daytime temperatures over a hundred they steam up and split not good the oranges don't come to harvest until December. Now this leaves me thinking what the future is going to be thanks global warming.

I'm  hoping is just a trend and not global warming. It's definitely not like it was when I was a kid. I work outdoors and the beat and humidity are definitely worse than they have been previously. The seasons are in an uproar.  Rain in July, cool in August. You just never know what the weather will be anymore.
Wishlist- Closed eye good tasting figs that produce well. Asian type persimmons. Jujube cuttings. Pear rescue or abbe fetel. Really good tomato varieties. Any oddball seeds!
