Monday July 12
Late posting today (as may be the case this summer, given our Giant Pumpkin Project (below). Good, steady summer weather remains the call, so not much to report as to long-range outlook.
No rain nor out-of-the-norm weather foreseen through the balance of July. Temps should cool down a bit as this week progresses. Onshore flow will increase, tapping into our marine air-conditioning. Thank goodness. The coming weekend (July 17,18) promises to be on the cooler side of summer, making for excellent outdoor activities, excluding swimming. It will be a bit BREEZY in the afternoons.
Next week should remain cool early on, then present another warm period as the weekend of July 24,25 approaches. Temps likely to pop back into the mid-upper 80s west side; warmer to the east. By Sunday the 25th, another cool push of marine air will drop temps again, to provide a pleasant period for the rest of July. Coastal drizzle at times during the cooler days mentioned.
Third Cup: Here at the Mennonite Village retirement community in Albany, 3 of us are attempting to grow a Giant Pumpkin - first time for the Village; first time for us. The Project is going very well (see image). Our pumpkin is now growing at a fast pace and should be adding 25-40 pounds PER DAY in August. We spend 2+ hours every morning working The Patch and tending to the Big One. Our weigh-off will be in October. We are doing this just for fun & to provide a focal point of interest for fellow Village residents.
