I'll agree about the weird gardening year.
I've been gardening for ten years, and this is the first year that I've had so many pollination issues. My beans won't grow at all, they're usually one of the first things to harvest.
We've only harvested a few zucchini, and usually we're bagging them up for people to take. Our salad box is still huge and thriving despite it being super hot.
When the frost danger was gone I transplanted them outside and they went into hibernation. They completely stopped growing. I moved the plants and soil from the containers all together into fresh topsoil and you would think someone just shut off the switch.
Flowers that are normally prolific haven't even grown, yet others I've never seen are bigger than ever.
the wasps build their darn nest in the same few place... This year nothing.
All those surrounding businesses were frequented by business people, for lunch, shopping, dinner, coffee etc. All gone now.
Here's the other weird thing. Hotels seem full.

Ahh, I pictured them in buckets before transplanting , not the quart sized containers.
Yes you didn't really have a choice then, they had to be transplanted, I would ask more questions but I don't want to pry.
I've lived in my house for a while, every single year the wasps build their darn nest in the same few place... This year nothing.
I usually have a problem with Japanese beetles, but not this year.
Friends that were thought to be in rock solid industries are in fear of losing their lively-hood, while those in shaky industries seem to be doing OK.
