Wow!  For us slugs and snails living in Oregons Fog Belt,   If Oct. 20 means rain and colder weather in most of Oregon, then we will finally start our summer.  Bad joke I know but we shall see as it often works that way.

I'm not sure if this is weather related or not, but a few of the Trachycarpus that were heavy seed producers last year have zero seed this year.  Others are full like normal.  Could the abnormally wet spring cause a poor seed set?

The ones in my neighborhood are all full of seed  like usual.  Haven’t noticed any difference. I know that some years they’ll take a break for whatever reason.

Goodbye summer, hello winter.  

Ryan I know you've been in the 70's and 80s the last couple weeks.  We haven't hardly seen 70 up here.  Today's high was 50f, and the rain turned back on.   They're calling for a low of 35 next week, but I'm guessing it'll probably change and not get that low.  

I'm glad the drought is over.

Well we went off the cliff Friday night. Cool and some wet weather down here. The first round of rain wasn’t enough to soak in as there were dry areas under the plants and about 2mm deep in my mulch was bone dry. Sunny again today but some more rain overnight and through the weeK.
I can remember two years out of the last few that we had our coldest night during a dry crisp October night.  
Last Sunday it was 86 and today a predicted high of 58. Quite the shift. I imagine this is going to slow things down quite a bit but many of my plants are still showing drought stress and need water.  Lots of droopy plants.  I think my neighbors would think I’m crazy if they see me out watering.
