Soggy November..


By stan510


Its not been a record like October’s rain and mild 22C temps…but the shorter days cut off the rain with warm in October to cool rains in November down to 16C.
My tropical fruiting plants like Guava’s-Mango-Banana are fine with it. Its the Papaya that might have a hard time dealing with cool wet soils.
Long term predictions say nothing warmer then 16-17C (62-63F my language-lol) until spring!..or February most likely until our return to the occasional 22C.
At least nights are well above average and nothing chilling cold so far.
On the positive side- very positive- is no need to water the garden now. Even potted plants are water free.

No,no worry's there Maggie. It shows the difference between the San Francisco bay area and Andy's San Diego down at the border..we had similar temps today 17C..Thursday we will be just like today,he's going to be like summer with 27 C, 80f warmth.
Papaya's still looking good for me though-lol.

Sound pretty decent temperatures Stan.....but good and bad to the Cali ate in all areas I suppose.

Yeah,I really hope for mild lows. That's what separates the subtropical garden from most around here.
Its like Funchal in the Canary's..they can grow some very tender plants even if their winter days are not much warmer then here- Its their island lows that never dip below 60F..15C. Crotons look great.
Here? I wish!
