Oh don't get me goin'. Because I will get goin' about this weather. It's cold, it's wet, and it's rainy. It's rough out there. Above photo? My bean plant died. Too much cold and too much wet. It's what beans can do when it's just too cold and wet.
Want some great insight from our local OSU Extension Horticulturist? I spoke with Weston Miller on my most recent LeLo Homemade show, and we chatted about what short and long term effects this chilly weather is having on our gardens. Read my lips: powdery mildew will be a problem.
You can listen to the show online here.
And then I rambled on all about rhubarb: where it came from, how to grow it, and my favorite things to do with rhubarb. Did you know "rhubarb" is the word they say on stage when actors are portraying a surly crowd? Rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb. I guess it is kind of surly sounding.
And bonus! You can subscribe to my show on iTunes now if you like, too.
How are other Pacific Northwest gardeners holding up with this weather? And for the rest of you, if you tell me you've been enjoying 90 degrees and days by the pool I'll about slap you upside the head.
