The rain came down beautifully and was such a blessing! This past week, we have received several gardening questions about flowers aborting on a number of vegetable crops. Even though most were keeping plants watered at the base of the plants, the cause was most likely due to the number of high heat days. A number of University Extension websites mention that high heat (over 90F) and low humidity reduce pollen viability and cause flowers to abort, especially in tomatoes, peppers, beans and corn.
