From experience, as a farmer, I can attest to this. The summer has been hotter than usual with the heat index being around 8 to 10 degrees above normal. We've had so much rain that there hasn't been an operational farm within 100s of miles for the past 2 and a half months. Normally we can grow eggplant, okra, and peppers throughout the hotter months as long as they are established by late spring. This past winter we had 2 consistent weeks of freezing which the year before it was three light frost days spread out over 2 months and its just getting worse year by year.

Have you had similar growing experiences lately, ziq?

Yup. A lot of my fruit just cooked on the trees, and my grapes were empty husks for the most part. Tomatoes all succumbed to blight a month ago. Chilli peppers are doing ok. Cactus fruits are doing bumper crops.

No frost this winter tho. And no rain for months.
