Now that Fall is finally here and tomorrow is the first day of October, one of my favorite months the weather has turned. Not to that wonderful cool crisp autumnal bring out your new sweater weather…but that strange Bay Area early Fall heat wave. All summer we have waited for warmth. Our plants have craved the sunshine, begged for just one or two rays. But got very little. What an unseasonably cool summer we had, even for Alameda. It seemed like almost every morning was cold and damp until noon at least, and even then the temperatures never really warmed up. Now this week depending on where you live in a 20 mile radius temperatures will range from the 80’s to the 90’s. I have a lot of watering to do today. Maybe I’ll work on my tan.
