Friday, August 28, 2015: What we are having today…Heat Wave Coming?

A big, towering (over 6 miles high!) upper air high pressure area is expected to build over the Great Lakes region over the weekend and sit around in the general area for at least 10 days.  These upper air highs act something like if you placed a 6 mile high clear plastic or glass dome over the area.  Think of the huge Mall of America in Minneapolis where their biggest problem isn’t heating it in winter but trying to cool it the rest of the year!  Heat created by the sun is trapped and has no place to go so it gets hotter and hotter! Something like this took place during mid March 2012 when temperatures across even northern Michigan approached 90F! It will be interesting to watch what actually takes place in the coming days.

What we will be having today:

Bi-color Mirai, all-white Mirai, and bi-color Essence sweet corn

Thursday, August 27, 2015: Red pears and what we are picking today

While today is starting off cloudy, the sun should finally return late this morning.  As I alluded to in my recent blog posts it appears we are headed for an early September heat wave.  The closer we get to September the hotter it looks, at least for the first part of the month.  It is becoming more and more likely that the first week or so of September will be hotter than any comparable time in July or August of this year.  Many forecasts are calling for at least five straight days with afternoon temperatures exceeding 90F.  While this is definitely unusual, it is not unprecedented.

This year we planted a low acid tomato called Chef’s Choice.  It is dark orange so you can tell it from normal acidic tomatoes.  Please don’t confuse it with our Carolina Gold which looks a bit like.  Unlike Chef’s Choice, Carolina Gold is not considered low acid.  I must comment here that I am not a low acid tomato lover and so despite ample flavor, Chef’s Choice is not my favorite tomato.  However, if acidic tomatoes upset your digestive track you may really enjoy Chef’s Choice. The price of Chef’s Choice, along with our normal sized Heirloom tomatoes and our large slicing tomatoes along with our green Bell peppers is all the same ($1.58 a pound) so they can all be mixed and weighed together on the same scale, which not only avoids confusion but lots of time.

Wednesday, August 26, 2015: What we are picking today

It looks like the sun will gradually return today.  Right now (8:30AM) there is some sunshine but satellite views indicate that some clouds will return shortly.  However, this afternoon the sun looks like it will return and pay a rather long visit. As I mentioned in my other posts, the first week of September, including the Labor Day weekend, looks to be very warm.

We are starting to pick our canning tomatoes and we have a few half bushels already at the stand.  They are real nice looking tomatoes and we will be picking more this afternoon.  Also, yesterday we picked our first Acorn Squash and plan on picking more today,

Tuesday, August 25, 2015: What we are picking today–Hints on the Labor Day Weekend Weather!

Today looks to be cloudy and cool but don’t let that foolya!  Summer weather  looks to return by this weekend! Next week it now looks like a genuine heat wave may sweep down on the Great Lakes region and most of the eastern two thirds of the US!  This heat is forecast now to last AT LEAST thru the Labor Day weekend. Of course, most mid range forecasts use computer weather models and anyone who reads this blog daily know my feeling about computer weather models.  This doesn’t mean it isn’t possible some years to fairly accurately forecast the future weather say for the upcoming winter.  For instance, with all that unusually warm water sitting out there along the equator in the Pacific at this time of the year normally is a sign of a relatively mild and dry winter across most of the northern US and southern Canada.  However, it doesn’t seem to indicate, one way or the other, about how Fall weather will be.  Interesting…

Monday, August 24, 2015: What we are picking today and Sunday Newsletter

Today’s forecast is for mostly cloudy skies with a few scattered rain showers.  Right now (8AM) its sunny and there is clear weather to the west in Wisconsin. It will be interesting to see if clouds and showers will build up as forecast.  It all depends upon the temperature and water content of the air 3000 to 8000 feet up.  If the air temperature at that level is much lower than the surface temperature and is relatively moist, clouds will build up.  If not, we will have more sun than forecast!

While it looks like we will get a taste of early fall-like weather the first few days of the work week, summer will make a quick return and, as it looks right now, last thru at least…READ MORE

Saturday, August 22, 2015: What we are picking today

Another beautiful sunny day today.  Tomorrow it looks like we will have a shower or TShower in the late morning or early afternoon although it shouldn’t last long.  As I mentioned earlier, the first part of the week looks to be mostly sunny and cool.  However, it does look like from there we will move into a rather extended late summer heat wave that is forecast to last at least thru Labor Day, although that is a bit far to reliably forecast the weather. The very strong El Nino (and perhaps even still strengthening) almost insures a mild winter for Michigan, but doesn’t seem to indicate, one way or the other, what type of early fall weather to expect.

The sun returns today and tomorrow along with pleasant temperatures in the upper 70s.  Early next week looks to be a tad cooler than normal with high temperatures only reaching the low 70s but it also looks like a late summer heat wave will set into central Michigan after that.

Thursday, August 20, 2015: What’s happening today

It looks like today we will have a few brief, light showers until early afternoon and then things will clear up some.  Tomorrow and the weekend look to be beautiful with a brief cool spell for Monday and Tuesday next week.

While we will have several nice half bushels of Redhaven peaches available today and tomorrow, after that we will only be selling them in 1/4 peck and 1/2 pecks.

We now have a good supply of SunSugar cherry tomatoes so we will try not to run out of them late in the day which has been typical so far this season.

Wednesday, August 19, 2015: What’s Happening Today at Magicland Farms

We had around 3/10 of an inch of rain last night.  Today looks to be a bit cloudy with few if any showers, but something could build up later.  Keep in mind that our Redhavens have peaked and there are only a few varieties of peaches that we grow that are later than Redhavens—in other words, we will soon be completing harvest of our peaches.  The Redhavens we have this year are larger than normal and just as good tasting as usual.

Our new patch of green and yellow beans is providing increasing supplies so we look to have enough beans for the rest of this week as well as next week.  After this patch is done we only have two patches left.

We are starting to pick our third (and last) slicing cucumber and pickle field and it looks like it will be a good one. However, when this field is done we will be done for the year on slicing cucumbers and pickling cucumbers.

Our muskmelon are ripening fast so we should have a good supply of them this week and next.

The next few days will bring cooler and sunnier weather before another warm-up starts this weekend.
