You call this spring!

It is Saturday, May 7, 4:45 pm and already 95 degrees outside. At least the humidity is down to 41% but it is definitely hot outside. And tomorrow is due to be just a couple of degrees hotter.

And the coming week is forecast to be just as hot. We seemed to have transitioned into hot spring, cool summer (is that a good description?) time of year. The 10 day forecast doesn’t drop below of 93 degrees. So hot seems to be here.

Welcome to why growing things in central Texas is so difficult.

My lettuce bolted as has my arugula. Its hardly a surprise that they’ve bolted, with this weather. But it is what it is.
