Re: my calif gold at 2010
You had me concerned for a moment because I thought your summer temps were about the same as what we get, but then I compared the averages. From May through Sept. our avg. highs are 6-10 deg. F. warmer than what you get in Salinas. Our average lows during the same period are about the same though. I suspect we generally have fewer hours below 55 deg. F. than you. Then again, you tend to stay warmer in the winter due to the greater maritime influence.
I am hoping that relocating my bananas to where the can now get more hours of direct sun will lead to fruit next year. I guess I missed Millet's comments on the Citrus forum, but keep in mind that the plant and soil/potting media won't cool as quickly as the air. Then again I suppose the fog doesn't burn off until later in the day for you during the summer. Hopefully my problems have been due to the original marginal location.
