We have already broken numerous records this spring for record high heat. This is not such a bad thing in some cases but can really screw up the planning process. Heat early in the summer pushes crops to maturity much faster than they would normally mature. For instance, last growing season lettuce heads weren't ready until mid-May. This year lettuce heads were ready for harvest the second week of April. With the heat, cool weather crops start to go to seed. Believe it or not we have already tilled under beds that were seeded in February and replanted warm weather crops in their wake and more are slated to be tilled under this weekend.
While the cool weather crops don't much care for the heat, the warm weather crops love it. Although we will continue to have cool weather crops for at least another month, we already have squash, tomatoes, beans and peppers blooming! Won't be long until we see some harvests from a few warm weather crops as well. All is well as long as we keep getting some periodic rain showers.
