Under the Radish Tree I sit.

It has been said that due to our greed, arrogance, and stupidity, our weather climate had changed to the point that we are now experiencing one of the coolest summers in living memory. Yesterday, when I got home from my work, there, my radishes were fully submerged in water from the latest weather system covering the North Coast of British Columbia, Canada, My efforts included cutting hold on the bottom of the pots, to prevent water from accumulating, but I never anticipated the volume of water falling from the sky to be like this. Like a mirror, reflecting the sky, and under the surface, were rows of Radishes drowning. This is truly the year of the Bummer Summer.

The above image is my patio, with my tomatoes and radishes, covered in water from the rains.

Well, I’m not going to waste time and effort bashing government and the people’s ideology on capitalism from the perspective of climate change. I fear my blog host would find that ton too welcoming. It is ironic that the further South you go, the hotter and dryer it gets. Sure they get more Sun, but so extreme. At both ends of the scale, I am O Kay with the rain and cool temperatures. I look at the land they call California, USA, and smile, because we are connected by the same oecan, and mountain range, yet so different weather patterns.

All but my poor radishes love the rain like this. Maybe the solution is more holes?
