not quite ripe

Last winter was brutal cold. At this time of year it is usually the opposite here: so hot and humid it is hard to breathe.

The sun is out and it is almost noon. The temperature is 70° and there is no humidity.

We wonder at the low end what these need, temperature wise, to ripen.


It seems like this year we might be testing the lower limits.

These too.


I'm under the impression high temperatures are needed. Time will tell.

  1. In the Pacific Northwest, we rarely have hot summers (this summer is an exception) and our cucumbers and tomatoes ripen just fine. I suspect yours will as well. :)
