Garden~

When to plant what & how in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama.

Sept brings a flurry of gardening.. North FL is still planting some warm season but is able to plant most cool season stuff. Central FL is planting a nice mix of both but still leaning mostly warm season. South FL is planting mostly warm season with a few cool season. Everyone can plant lettuce..so let us plant!!!

North FL Bush & pole beans, Broccoli, cauliflower, collards, cucumbers, onions, turnips, summer squash, Kohlrabi, beets, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, lettuce, mustard, parsley, radish.

Central FL pole, lima & bush beans, broccoli, celery, collards, corn, eggplant, onions, peppers, cucumbers, southern peas, summer squash, tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, mustard, parsley, radish, turnips.

South FL bush, pole & lima beans, broccoli, cantaloupes, cabbage, collards, corn, cucumber, eggplant, lettuce, mustard, parsley, okra, southern peas, peppers, pumpkins, summer squash, tomatoes & watermelon.

September 2012
21st-23rd Clear Fencerows, Woodlots And Fields, But Do No Planting.
24th-25th Any Aboveground Crops That Can Be Planted Now Will Do Well.
26th-27th Poor Planting Days. Kill Plant Pests.
28th-30th Favorable Planting Days: First Day For Aboveground Crops. Last Two Days For Root Crops. Last Two Days Also Good For Transplanting. All Days Fine For Planting Vine Crops.

Heads up Newfoundland. Here comes Leslie!

Quoting GeorgiaStormz:


Well it fell way short of the intensity forecast too, so that was to be expected.


Yes~ it was a necessary step to compare the how big LowerCal left us.. I probability should have done it a day or two ago to get it in an even closer location..but ya'll were warned this competition may be too broad & meaningless to be really fair:)

You should have played the over/under..

987mb is the lowest I've seen on Leslie so far, the every 1/2hr dvorak.

Anybody got anything lower?
Member Since: August 10, 2005 Posts: 193 Comments: 38698
Bigger overall is the shift in polar cool spot, we've been noting how this is probability over riding ENSO. This would normally wobble around a bit but not any more during summer..I'd say the UK and NW Europe are in for many a wet cold summers while Greenland has ice. The new polar summer cool spot set up a High over Greenland all summer long, rearranging the lows & highs, precipitation & such in a some what stagnate pattern. I generated this graph for a 100 days of summer..sea level pressure anomaly..it's been a consistent summer, don't expect any big change for second 1/2 with all that sea ice gone.

Happy Peak of Season Everyone!

Well~ MJO didn't come to our party. It's off causing havoc in other parts of the world. Pakistan was hit hard.


Kinda neat was the guys that made that chart has been working with NASA on the unmanned flights into Leslie.

For second 1/2 of season doom...Probably reached a plateau in ENSO. I still like a warm neutral with some El Nino conditions at times.. I could see 24 storms total for the year, mostly weaker storms. Maybe another huge one or two & atleast another small cute storm more toward the NE Atlantic. Don't see anyone out of the woods for the season.. Even CaribBoy~ ITCZ has to come south & settle down a little at some point as we move toward winter. NFL should continue to be the hot spot, could get near a handful more..& yes I'm counting remnants.

Peak of season is also WUBA Wunderground membership drive day. If you've spent hours here entertained or found the info you needed consider becoming a member..the ads go away & the Nexrad radar loop becomes adjustable to 40 frames.

Hope everyone gets the weather they want for the second half..

one told me he based his on the average mean temp .. hot in the summer cold in the winter .. temperature always evens out for the year .. wither that will be severe cold snaps well below zero or of prolonged below normal temps ..

after all the rain we got in 2011 he told me it would be dryer then normal this year ...
Member Since: August 17, 2005 Posts: 365 Comments: 31766
Wab~ Thanks for the old timer report. I don't doubt it. The ice loss we've had, there is no way that polar vortex will stay at the pole this winter. Which way it wobbles or where the standing wave ends up I've got to looks at more. Saw something I don't have links to here, the pattern has been high centered over Greenland & what ice is left. I'll have to look later..

What are the old timers basing it on?

Skye .. hopefully the front will sag south enough to give you a day or so of cooler weather but doesn't look like it will ..

a lot of old timers up here are saying we are going to have a very cold winter .. and if that happens we may be sending several fronts your way ..

Skye .. it is a beautiful day almost perfect .. only 70º with puffy clouds .. nice sleeping weather !!
Member Since: August 17, 2005 Posts: 365 Comments: 31766
It's just hit a wall & is evaporating before it gets here. I hope we get the clearing & air all you up north have. Everyone behind the front sounds so much happier.

Aqua~ That would have been second before last night of tour..a week ago yesterday. I couch toured it. Was awesome. It's been a week of adjustment. Tour over, school on. Sobering really.

I always mourn that end of summer, even the hard ones. Everything interacts so much more in the heat.

hi ya'll

gotta turn over some dirt soon- seems everyone from angry wab locals to sickly fla locals, needs some good growing and healing.
I said a coupla days ago- elsewhere- that we weren't gonna see the rains they expected. 1-2" met-predicted = 0.20" aqua-predicted.

For skye- 14 minutes of sand into 24 minutes of ghost. Too long of a set to even take me to work. :( Was a good ride. It was the second set of the second day of Denver (?) very recent.

90L is gone. Remnants are going though Lake City, FL right now..Isaac finally made it..took 2 1/2 weeks.

91L is new fresh off Africa & 94W is dead.

Wabit~ He's still so cute & Leslie wow..big!

Finn~ I hope everyone gets to feeling better.. There & here.

Yes it has wab :)

Skye comment #54. Thanks and WOW!

John is gone. 97W is new..95W & 96W must have come & gone yesterday.

Closed the how big is Leslie. I saw her 12 squares lastnight. I should have stuck with that instead of got all ginormous.

Watching the NE surge..


Guy~ Seems like a measure..

Hope Newfoundland is spared. They have a good chance as Michael & Leslie merge to have Leslie pulled back to the east a little more.

I had about 1/2 inch more than you. Waiting on more now. Coverage looks better. Tell PAB to turn the shield down a little.. Lightning is letting up as it approaches. Everyone got rain this year but us. You even worse than me.

Finn~ I heard they've had the canal open & draining. oh here..

Recovery Operations from Isaac Continue

The South Florida Water Management District is continuing its recovery efforts in areas of western Palm Beach County most heavily affected by Tropical Storm Isaac on August 26-27, 2012.

The primary SFWMD flood control system, including pump stations, gates and locks, has returned to normal wet season operations. Staff in the SFWMD Operations Control Room continue to work with local governments and drainage districts in western Palm Beach County to coordinate water operations and bring as much flow as possible from those areas into the appropriate District canals and facilities.

A post-storm analysis shows the District moved an estimated 105 billion gallons of water away from residents in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties during and immediately after Isaac. Recent rainfall through Friday, September 7, has not produced any setbacks in the District's recovery efforts.

pdf on the historic rainfall, amount of water diverted & on going recovery.

I keep signing & rallying for good label laws..


& 90L..what a naked swirl. Isn't expected to get all that bad , they all want to visit NFL this year. I bet Aqua sees more of that one than you or me.

Hiyalls :)
We've had severe thunderstorm warnings two nights in a row. PB Gardens, Wellington and Acreage can't take any more rain...
Ants running crazy again and smells like TS here. Can we possibly get a named blob? NHC giving 40% chance and gfs pointing at FL.
Lake Okeechobee must be already ok with water levels but I haven't checked. If more rain is on the way, will they manually lower the water levels? If they do, will the extra water run towards inland PB County?
Member Since: October 6, 2005 Posts: 67 Comments: 7392
How big will Leslie get? She is already big, I am wondering how strong for the poor folks in the Canadian Maritimes. New England is going to get some very large waves, and almost surely some coastal flooding at least. The tides in Maine are amazing, I know they are used to that, but high tides with those huge waves are bad news for any new McMansions built too close to shore.

Eyes on post-Leslie to possibly move north to a position between Iceland and Svalbard, pulling more ice out of the Arctic Ocean. This years record-smashing low has been partly caused by "Fram Strait Flushing", and was really accelerated by the "Arcticane" in mid-August that broke the Arctic Ocean freshwater cap. Time of year for surface re-freezing north of 80 degrees but the ice is still disappearing from bottom-melting and the flushing into the Atlantic. How low can it go?

I was staring at the local radar a lot yesterday. There was at least three times that I was thinking Satellite Beach was in for some drenching rains, an inch or more? But all three times the storm lines split just west of Lake Washington or slid off to the south. I had a whopping 0.04 inches of rain in my gauge this morning from all day yesterday. Disappointing and not nearly enough.

I keep wishing for rain on the main, and people get really annoyed and make side-swiping comments, feeling their own obvious superiority. One kind soul was nice enough to wumail me to suggest I take a ride down I-95 and look at all the water, as if he was whispering in my ear that I had a rip in my pants and I should cover up. They do not understand how different this rainy season has been in the local area of south-central Brevard compared to the flooding in many other areas of the peninsula. Our rain had come in short heavy bursts, but interspersed with long dry spells, leaving the soil too dry and the vegetation suffering.

Looking forward to next week's cool front! Cheers!

P.S. At least I got four hundredths yesterday, I see KCOF got zero, their eighth straight day without any rain.

Morning Skye!

FTMyersgal~ Hope you get to try out your new Stratus. They are really nice. You planning on reporting heavy rainfalls to NWS storm reports? I think my first storm report was sleet.

Ylee~ That Storm Report is like 2 hrs long. Nice background music.

I thought of you when I was traveling & would get in here on notmyipod. I'd just set it down while it took a minute or two to load. Faster than waiting on TV:)

Morning all we've got 90L.. ~1/3 of Isaac reprise in the Gulf of Mexico..Since it's not all of Isaac & there is some added trough, if it pulls together it will be a new storm.


I was wondering about that Skye. Thank you for that information! Maybe some of that moisture will make it down to Ft Myers, so I can have my first offical rain measured in my new Stratus I got from aqua9 and rainman! (Fingers crossed.....)

I can't ignore a numbers contest. I'll go with TS force winds extending 450 miles across. And a low pressure of 948mb. That's where I'd put the over/under, at 948. What's this about quitting smoking and getting married?
I wish you the best in both if it's referring to you.

Y'all had fun while I was off today. Had one good rain. I think I'll skip watering today too. Models were more west with the AL blob. The ULL over us needs to move for us to get that rain..

Bogon~ Yeah hoping she will stay out to sea & we can have a little fun with the size.

Rob~ I went with pick apples but substituted passionfruit. Got a gallon or more.

Aqua~ Your fat lady disappeared! She was awesome. I was going to call the size of her left..nevermind.

Oh & I refuse to be responsible to what ever happens to your life for following the moon. You should have learned your lesson that month you mention where you tried to do it all:)

Ah..grand-gourds:)

Been watching all that stuff south of here and little storms blowing every which way. Took my eye off the radar for 10 minutes and poof! One appears right overhead.

Might get away with no irrigation this week either!
Member Since: September 2, 2008 Posts: 99 Comments: 32857
I noticed some talk about sweet potatoes up top. We can't grow them up north; it just doesn't get hot enough. There is a local burger chain that prides itself on offering their take on fresh veggies and fruits -- everything from deep-fried asparagus in the spring to fresh strawberry milkshakes. Currently their big draw is Sweet Potato Fries, cooked just like french fries except with a sprinkling of fresh rosemary instead of salt. Yum! Anybody growing sweets in their yard oughta give that a try. Maybe even GuyGee's family might like 'em that way.

Funny stuff Aqua!

Yesterday I was attempting to clean my office and get rid of some stuff. Told Angie there was a big trash can in there and to put anything she wanted to get rid of in it. Reflected on that for a moment, turned around and said "Anything except 'My Stuff'"

She laughed. I've learned to be careful how I phrase things around here!
