California is experiencing extreme draught. Both San Diego and Temecula Water Authorities have limited irrigation of gardens to 2 days a week, 5 minutes a day if using standard irrigation. Since my gardens are on drip irrigation, I am not restricted to the 5 minutes a day but the 2 days a week limitation still applies. 2015 summer is probably the hottest summer we have had in quite a while. My plants are stressed.
This routine has drastically reduced the size and quantities of fruits. Tomatoes are my summer delight. This year, while the tomatoes were covered with blossoms, the high temperatures caused most of the flowers to fall. Instead of harvest dozens of tomatoes each day, I have only be able to harvest 3-5 tomatoes a week....
