How is your weather?


#2863

Wow…it has been wet here and i’ve seen 13 inches of liquid since SEpt 1st…

Have you seen the drought conditions in Germany?> The rivers there are literally drying up.


#2864

About 1" of rain is predicted for our location this Thursday – we’ll see what happens.


#2865

Another weekend low pressure system heading towards the area…looks awfully wet…should stay liquid/maybe change over to snow…Sat/Sun.


#2866

Finally a little more rain on the way. We picked up .01" so far today, with another .35" supposed to in the forecast for tomorrow.


#2867

Incoming to the San Diego area … maybe.

#2868

It’s been going off just south of us. It looks like SoCal is going to get a (well deserved) drenching this time. Thankfully.


#2869

Fall has finally arrived here.


#2870

For sure.
I just picked my last 5 Wonderfull poms this am. Of course citrus keeps rolling along. And surprisingly a few tomatoes are gradually ripening.

Upper 50’s for the next 10 days or so.

Edit:
We got lucky, and outperformed our predicted high for the day. (no complaints, mind you)


#2871

Same here!


#2872

Thankfully some rain made it to our location. We received 3/4" total.


#2873

NIce! You guys really needed it after the last few years.
We squeezed out .67" in our rain shadowed location.


#2874

Do you grow grapefruit? I’ve noticed that grapefruit (and other citrus) have become very cheap to buy. Tis the season.

Big blob of precip heading up from the south. Temp of 36F with strong winds. Ground is frozen. This should be interesting mix of snow/rain/freezing rain/sleet/etc etc… This fall weather pattern has sucked big time. We had clouds every day this past week. Finding a sunny day has been a needle in the haystack the past 60+ days.

Latest weather model… this is why bears hibernate.

#2876

No, just 2 limes (Bearrs, and Mexican Lime) Washington Navel orange, and Meyer Lemon. I may try to add a Mandarin in the spring. Grapefruits are a little too tart for our taste buds.

Citrus trees are indeed cheap. 4 Winds growers supplies many of the nurseries and a decent size tree is normally < $29.00 and produces within a year.


#2877

Yeah…seems like you love them or not. We really like lime/lemons too… Nice that you can grow them…i’d be all over that if i had the climate. I have a grapefruit seedling…maybe some day i’ll try grafting something to it.


#2878

Yeah we are very fortunate. We actually have high enough heat for Grapefruit & Washington Navel (which require the most heat of the citrus’) which coastal areas can’t grow. This is also why I can grow poms, but coastal areas struggle. And we stay just mild enough during the winter to avoid damaging cold. It’s a fine balance, and the main reason commercial citrus growers are about 30 miles south of us. Plus the land prices are about 3X lower in the central valley.


#2879

… in your locale. But just a mile inland from Cayucos CA and Morro Bay (up Morro Creek) it works fine. Many other niches and long extents on the coast exist south of Oxnard too.


#2880

True. I was more referring to NorCal. Sweet oranges - nope. Never going to work in SF, Pacifica etc. At least not very tasty.


#2881

Snowy day today with about 4 to 5 inches on the ground.


#2882

Wish I could send our rain to CA! Pouring!
