Planted the tomatoes today. I'm not like my old neighbour who obsesses over his. He has them staked already, and has probably given them their steroids. :) They are perfect! I have a real problem with these things as we disappear to the cottage, just at the time that the weeds attack everything, and the drought hits. Every year I try something different, and this year I am using landscape cloth, and just letting the plants sprawl. My neighbour is horrified! Last year I did this without the cloth, and still got a lot of tomatoes, and I'm hoping the cloth stops contact with the ground, and subsequent rot. I really want the world's laziest tomatoes!
My estimate on the weather is that we have reverted 10 years. I hope it isn't 20 years with a freezing June. I suspect we'll use cottage sauna a bit more this year. Can't wait to see the 'official' world temperature for this year! A setback of 10-20 years would be good enough to blow the carbon correlation, I just hope it doesn't go any further!
