May was colder with huge amounts of rain that caused floods and landslides all over the country. Temperatures in last 14 days were below 20°C. This is unusual for this part of Croatia since our normal temperatures by the end of May are always over 25°C.
I can't say that my plants don't like this last few days. There is enough water for them to grow. This is probably one of the rare moments when I'm happy I live on the hill. All the extra water drains down so my garden isn't flooded like some of the gardens in my village that are on flat ground. Also with water draining down I don't have that muddy concrete part of soil that damages roots and prevents vegetables from growing.
Also temperatures aren't too high for my plants so they don't suffer from heat like they did in April.
This is why all my vegetables look good for now, well except of the peas that have already been too damaged to recuperate.
Potatoes will bloom soon.
Tomatoes already have flowers and will soon start making fruits.
Peppers that were transplanted 2 weeks ago are a bit yellow from colder weather but they are growing and hopefully will soon reach earlier transplanted peppers that already have flower buds.
Zucchinis recuperated from hail and are blooming like mad.
There are already little zucchinis that will soon be ready for our first harvest.
Beans survived rough weather condition, big amounts of water and too wet soil and now they are growing nicely.
and lettuce that survived hail really like this past few cold days. They doubled the size in just 14 days.
Flowers are starting to fill up empty spaces in the garden. Nigellas, poppy and roses give the garden much needed color.
Summarizing everything summer was very wet with jumps between extremely hot and cold days and with strong and hurricane winds. Let's just hope summer will be better.
