Soggy planting season leaves growers dripping with concern - The Intelligencer
Brunt and his wife, Christie, helped several customers with purchases of plants and flowers for their gardens. But Brunt is concerned.The Farmers’ Almanac, dating to 1818, predicts more wet and muggy weather this summer, and Brunt believes in the almanac’s predictions.“They seem to understand the weather patterns better than Doppler,” he said referring to radar.Last year was the second wettest recorded in Philadelphia and both the Farmers’ Almanac and the National Weather Service expect more of the same this growing season. That has farmers, gardeners and veterinarians anxious, as all the dampness isn’t healthy for plants and animals alike. “Right now, it definitely has been a wet spring. The ground is holding a lot of moisture,” Brunt said. “The fields are wet.”Master gardener Pauline Myers, with the Penn State Extension Service in Montgomery County, agrees. “It’s absolutely saturated,” she said of the soil. And with all the wet weather, the bees aren’t as busy pollinating the fruit trees and other plants that depend on them. “Bees don’t work in the rain.”Animals have also been affected. At the Doylestown Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Laura Weis said she’s seen about a dozen cases of leptospirosis this year, most likely because of the ground not drying out. The rare disease is spread in the urine of dogs and wild animals. Because it’s been so wet, dogs that... Mar 29, 2019
Under the Influence of a ‘Super Bloom’ - The New York Times
Ulta, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Rite Aid, or impressmanicure.com!”). “You’ll never influence the world by trying to be like it,” read Ms. Smith’s first poppy photo caption. And yet, as more people posed for poppy pictures, and international news outlets picked up the story, influence the world they did. Within three weeks, so many people were influenced to come pose in the flowery hills that the city had to figure out how to intervene. After a Lake Elsinore official was hit by a car, and a visitor was bitten by a rattlesnake, the city shut down access to Walker Canyon, the main trailhead, from the nearest roads and set up a $5 shuttle service to bring visitors from the local outlet malls. But the hordes found other places to park and walk in, and the city lacked the manpower to enforce the closure.“They’re going out there with wedding dresses on, Sunday best, Easter clothes,” said Sharron Tolbert, who lives two miles from the trailhead. “For the most part, they don’t care,” she said, referencing the closures that were meant to slow the traffic of influencers. “They pull over and get out of the car.” (The city later surrendered control, posting on Facebook, “At this time, it is not feasible for us to keep visitors away from #WalkerCanyon.”)Imagefigcapt...

Sow There!: Kid kindness brings daffodil days to gray days - Chico Enterprise-Record
Chico" and "Daffodil Days 2019" and found a group offering bouquets this month: https://bit.ly/2H58WkN.
A few fun facts
The Old Farmer's Almanac website, https://www.almanac.com/plant/daffodils#, had a few things to say about daffodils. I'd hope so; they've been around for more than 100 years, which is plenty of time to reach "expert status."
The sap from daffodil blooms can cause other flowers to wither. For this reason, never add daffies to a bouquet with other flowers.
Also, if your plants bloom but the flowers are less-than vibrant, add a low-nitrogen, high-potassium fertilizer to add some zip for next years' blooms.

Ford, Walmart test self-driving grocery delivery service - The Spokesman-Review
Ford Motor Co. is partnering with Walmart to test home delivery services early next year in an effort to learn consumer expectations that will shape development of driverless vehicle technology, the Dearborn-based automaker announced Wednesday.
While the partnership between the companies has begun, delivery of Walmart customer goods in Florida's Miami-Dade County won't begin until next year.
The two companies will test out the concept as part of an existing grocery-delivery partnership between Postmates and Walmart. Ford vehicles will eventually be mocked up to appear autonomous and simulate the process of consumers retrieving their groceries without the help of a human driver.
Ford plans to use the drivers to deliver purchased goods to Walmart shoppers who will have no interaction with the drivers. The customer experiences will provide Ford a better understanding of what customers want as Ford technology teams develop robot cars to deliver goods.
